jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Pale gold with light, white head / Fat nose of candied apple & pear, with some barnyard funk / Medium to full body, mostly fat with modeest fine-bubbled carbonation, moderately sweet, trace of sourness / Steely, young flavors of red apple, pear, some Jolly Rancher, with quirkier straw, old sweater, bologna, cheese / A very successful whimsy. deyholla (11902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2013
On tap at Bangers & Lace. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has a strong funky barnyard note with underlying tart but dry apples. Flavor starts with a touch of acid and tart apples with a strong funky barnyard backbone and a dry finish. drdisque (870) - Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Vander Mill Dirty Jim - on tap at Bangers & Lace. Aroma is manure aka "barnyard". Flavor is acidic and tart and very representative of the dry english style. Very "funky" as the brewer’s description indicates, and I think this limits its appeal. Good, but unexceptional.
