Served in a tumbler.

I've been reticent about these guys after the resurrection no one asked for (AKA Baderbrau), but I've heard promising things about this stuff, so I figured I'd give it a shot. It pours a clear sunrise brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild lemon zest, grass (how appropriate, eh?), a hint of white bread, and a soft peck-on-the-cheek of leek. The taste brings in more of the same, the lemon peel and grass doing some nice work together. Cooperation at its finest. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a pretty tasty beer, nothing mind-expanding, but the softness and nigh-subtlety really work well here. Not bad at all.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Superb looking froth, the clarity is even better. Aromas of lemon zest, fresh cut grass and a faint green onion. Brisk crispness, very bready with a dough-like character throughout. Peppery hop bitterness, very grassy with a thick oily floral tone. Very well rounded and most certainly drinkable, these hoppy lagers win me over.

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

The beer poured a clear, pale gold color and made a 1½-finger white head that lasted a few minutes. Unfortunately, it left very little lacing on the glass or it would have gotten a higher appearance score.

The beer had a citrusy pineapple and lemon smell, along with some grassy hops.

Grassy and citrus hops give this lager a significant dose of bitterness. Lots of lemon and lemon zest flavor with some bready malts thrown in for balance. There's a touch of peppery spice in here as well.

Light bodied with moderate to medium carbonation.

I think this is much better than what we usually refer to as a lawnmower beer.

A: Center pour into a pilsner glass, color is pale yellow with an abundant head that leaves behind a nice lace.

S: Aromas of citrus, grass and bready malt.

T: Taste is crisp, a little lemon/grapefruit bitterness and a creamy malt character.

M: Medium body with light carbonation, oily finish with some floral notes.

O: A good take on the IPL style and a pretty decent no nonsense beer. And @ 5.5% abv. I cant wait for some hot days and a lawn to cut. I have enjoyed both new styles from baderbrau enough that I might have to go and hit up the original.
