Appearance: yellow/gold, satisfactory head which had adequate staying power.
Smell/Taste/Mouthfeel/Drinkability: There is an annoying sour or "astringent" smell and taste to this beer. It is the prominent note, backed up by bitterness, these are the two strongest characteristics of this beer. Any actual malt and/or hop flavor takes a back seat. Sour and bitter alone are not a pleasant experience and that's what this beer gave. I rarely head for the drain, but I did with this one. Unpleasant.

Pale yellow pour with an aroma of overripe oranges and a puffy head that dissolved rather quickly. Very light and refreshing with a fruity taste, but there's really not much to this stuff, it's pretty much a lawnmower beer. Crisp and refreshing hop finish, drinkable enough but not a standout.

Pours a clear yellow brew with a very violent carbonation level.

Smell is sweet malt and grain and a bit of a horse blanket smell. Mild fruity smells too.

Taste is neutral and grainy with a bit of tartness to it. For some reason I can taste alcohol in this.

Mouthfeel is average.

An OK drinkable brew that reminds me too much of Budweiser.

Light orange gold color. Head is small. Aroma is fruity and malty. A medium bodied helles. This one is as bone dry, on a nice mild malty backbone. Mild hop spiciness, touch of orange. Light and refreshing, yet it has enough flavor not to be boring. This would be a great summer beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Was not impressed with this beer. It poured a nice yellow hue with hardly any foam at all. The taste was not all that impressive and I personally think that this beer was over aged. It had a flat and listless taste with a hint of sour on the tongue!

Clear light golden in color. Sporadic bubbles of gas surface evenly. Nice white fluffy head tops it off. Recedes to a thin film and laces adequately. Pale malt on the nose. Very slight noble hop aromas. Body is light to medium. Glides over the tongue fairly effortlessly. Light taste of a pils-like maltiness. Subtle noble hop spice notes. Pretty easy drinking brew. Could put back many of these on a hot day.

Thanks to Senior Shit and his wife for the sample.

Pours a beautiful, clear straw gold color with a big pillowy white head that sticks fairly well. A nice biscuity maltiness in the nose with some very weak hop presence as well. Big sweet maltiness from the start. Not big as in overpowering but definitely most of the taste. There is a nice, lighter, hop underprofile which keeps it just in balance. Nice sweet maltiness but not to the point of being cloying, medium body and fairly refreshing. Yet another nice beer from this brewery, I definitely suggest trying some of their products.
