received this bottle from a friend coming back from New York. Poured into a pilsner glass.
Aroma: Upon first cracking I instantly smelled skunk. Probably my fault as it was a sunny day when it was given to me and I foolishly stored it under the dashboard as I did not have a dark bag to put it in. Otherwise, low hop aroma with floral notes.
Appearance: Light golden in color with a white head.
Flavor: well balanced between hop and malt as per the guidelines. Definitely a touch of sweetness, probably more than what I would like to have in a dortmunder. Definitely crisp with very mild honey notes.
Mouthfeel: light body, medium carbonation.
Overall: aside from the skunking which was my fault it was a light, crisp and refreshing beer and definitely a good sessionable beer at that. It fits all the guidelines but if it wasn't for my mistake, it probably would've been a little higher...but it probably shouldn't be in a green bottle. All it takes is 30 seconds of sunlight.

Production date: 2/25/2014. Best before: 2/25/2015. 500 ml green bottle.
A: Tab-pull the cap to release a clear pale yellow fluid with an aggressive pour yielding 1-inch thick white head which settles to a thin cap and leaves semi-rings and spots of lace.
N: Hay and grass, yeast, malt, damp earth.
T: Grainy, corn (?), lager yeast, mild lemon.
M: Light body and light carbonation. Thin, crisp, clean, sticky yeasty finish with slight bitterness.
O: Simple, basic, straight-up lager. Not a fan and will not have again.
