Bottle, enjoy by Jan 3 2012.

Slight hazy, gold-straw color. Lots of bubble rising up. Thin head.

Aroma is sweet grain, hay, touch of spicy hops.

The flavor starts off sweet grains, slight spicy hops towards the end. Some biscuity, honey, lemony. Body is light, very crisp. Medium carbonation. Dry finish and aftertaste.

Bottle from Chevy Chase. I've lost track of how many years its been since I've had this beer. Five? In any case, there's no freshness date on this, so I hope it isn't ancient.

Clear golden yellow with a dense, white head that falls off to a disk rather quickly. The nose is rather excellent. MOderately hoppy with a blend of earth, lemon snappiness, and a touch of soap, this is a pretty enjoyable blend (despite the soap). This complements the malt character, which is a blend of crackers, bread, grain, dough and even a touch of honey. Very nice.

The palate is better. Opening with a firm bitterness, lemony, dusty and snappy (though not quite as nice as in Summer Love) flavors follow. Grainy and doughy for the most part, with a touch of honey, the malt character is quite nice, and nicely complements the hops. Drying, grainy and bitter on the finish with a mild mineral character that actually tastes like it might be a combination of the earthy hops and the carbonic acid. I really like the hop profile of this beer. Light in body without being watery, this beer has a medium-high level of carbonation (appropriately enough) and a drying finish that's mildly hoppy and mildly grainy. Very nice, recommended.

This beer has a golden color body with a small fizzy head that quickly disaptes ton a very,very thin lace around the edge. The smell has a lemony, malt aroma to it. The taste is well balanced with malt and some lemon hop flavor to it. It is well carbonated with a nice mouth feel, no after taste. Over all this is a nice easy drinking beer.

Pale yellow in color with a slight chill haze. Poured with a short fizzy white foam that quickly dissipated leaving no cap or lacings. Toasted malt, biscuit, and light lemon hop aromas. Medium bodied with assertive, but not fizzy, refreshing carbonation. Toasted malt with biscuit flavors up front with a tangy, citrus lemon hop bite through the middle. Finishes crisp and dry with a biscuit malt aftertaste.

Attractive straw yellow, with an ample head of fine white foam. Medium lace.

Aroma is grainy and malty. Appealing and straightforward.

Flavor is crisp and grainy -- picture-perfect for a lager. This one's rich and full-flavored, though, not at all watery. Maybe not to the same level as Victory's Prima Pils, but definitely a delicious and enjoyable lager.
