500 ml bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k. The pour is mostly clear yellow golden, with a fluffy 3 inch white head. The head falls with a small amount of soapy lacing. The aroma is full fresh toasted cracker malt, nice gentle herbal mineral character, and hint of malt sweetness behind. The taste is the cracker malt, paired wonderfully with the herbal mineral, along with a nice spice, and the dry mineral finish. The palate is medium bodied, un filtered mouth feel, and the dry mineral finish is a real highlight. This is a great beer, directly up my alley. Thanks Eugene.

kramer (6313) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Draft, Granite City Brewing Downtown Indy. Pours a clear gold body with a wispy white head. The nose is clean pale malt with a touch of hops. The flavor is ok, slightly fruity with pale doughy malt, minimal hops. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. A little grainy on the finish. Meh, not the best exams of the style, but drinkable.

Simply one of my "Go To" beers. Excellence of this style. Pours a deep gold and cloudy with moderate white head, dissipating. Good lacing remains throughout. Well-balanced. A great beer any time of year, especially summer - Prost to Florian!

Keg at the Midtown location, 12/17/16. Slightly hazy gold, large creamy white head, good retention. Aroma of doughy malt and mild grassy hops. The taste matches. Medium bodied, crisp, well balanced.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass. Appearance is clear yellow/light brown, nice sparkle, finger-width white foamy head with fair retention and fair lacing. Aroma is cracker pilsner malt. Taste is rich, almost fatty, cracker/biscuit--like a wheat thin--with mild tart. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with airy, frothy texture, soft-to-average carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, certainly European-inspired and good for the style.

Very well made lager here. Traditional, to style with a good hop bite and some mineral and bread notes in the body.

Can from Milk and Hops, Chelsea, 11/10/16. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a small, fizzy head. Nice malty aroma, lemons, grains, and earth. Bit of grass. Moderately sweet, clean, easy drinking. Lightly dry close.

zenkis (807) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 19, 2016
Pours yellowish-greenish with white off top, medium lasing. Aroma of sweet malt-hop mash, very ale alike thou, not like lager. Taste is light to medium sweet, light to medium hoppyness but not much bitterness, just light one. Medium+ body, but it didnt mess with drinkability. Kinda liked it. Easy going beer. I would say good balance slightly towards hoppyness makes it cool.

TimE (5376) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2016
Golden color. Very pleasant slightly sweet nose with honey, cereal and slightly grassiness. Very clean nose. Malty forward lots of cereal notes, but good grassy hops backing things up. Feels pretty authentic, like right from Germany. Good example

Can. Losing your soul mate is hard enough. But 5 days after also watching your hometown losing Game 7 to the fucking 108 year old goat-curse believing North Siders (after being up 3-1 no less) and on the eve of a possible apocalyptic election scenario, the after work beer choice was all the more difficult. Picked this because I still have to walk my kid to school in the morning before I vote. So yeah... pale straw yellow pour, generous white head with excellent retention. Nose is grassy, Meyer lemons, grainy malt. Mouth is medium bodied, mild malt sweetness, toasty grains and some grass. Goes down super easy. So far I like here this Urban Chestnut brewery. Proves not every brewer in St. Louis is a profit driven, horse shit shoveling mega-corporate malt-based Nazi regime ;-) Provided the world doesnt end before then, next season is the Tribes year. In the meantime, dont forget to vote.
