3.15/5  rDev -18.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A rich golden color, hazy, topped by a white half inch head. A bit of carbonation lazily makes it's way to the top.

A very wholesome nose. Cracker and bread aromas. A very light scent of a noble hop I think, but I'm not quite sure, and I won't take a guess at the variety. Smells nice.

A bit subdued taste wise. Some bread/cracker flavor, and a nice faint lemon taste. Floral hops bitter it up a little. There may be more going on here, but I'm just not picking anything else out.

Medium bodied, but a slight creamy quality makes it seem fuller. More carbonation than I would have guess from looking at it.

This is a good choice for a session beer, but it just isn't my cup of tea.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

hay color with a small cap of white that seriously stayed for about a few seconds with no visible carbonation. aroma is earthy, musky grain, touches of light grass, but really rather bland and without much in the way of any depth, light feel, watery at times without any really big flavors or huge noticeable chnage from the smell. clean finish

July 2009 bottle

A- Pours a thin white fizzy head on a murky golden colored body. Head didn't stick around long and little to no head retention. Very fine sediment in suspension.

S- Lots of bread notes in the aroma, perhaps a touch of lemon zest.

T- Follows the nose. Cereal grains, breadiness with just a touch of citrus. Hops have all but faded out. Starting to get that oxidized/cardboard/past it's prime taste, but still was alright to drink the whole 12 ounce bottle.

M- Medium mouthfeel, most of the carbonation had held on as well.

D/O- Recovered from TATURBO's cellar, this one doesn't have much longer before it will become undrinkable. This was (and would be again) prime drinking in the srping and summer seasons.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a nice billowy white head and lots of tiny bubbles rising out of the bottom of the glass. Aroma is largely yeasty with a graininess, a good graininess, and some breadiness/ The aroma is simple, beautiful well nuanced and entirely different from almost every beer I have ever had. I love the flavor of this, it starts off with that dry baguette like character that is sometimes found in a fine biere de garde. The flavor is wonderfully complex, with lemon, crisp nicely bitter noble hops, some corn (and for the first time in my life, not in a bad way), some honey, a light spiciness, and a light floral character. Unbelievably drinkable, ask a bartender at the Glarner Stube, they'll tell you how many of these a good customer can throw back.

Had a bottle of this one at a friend's house while getting ready for a Christmas party
Pours a bright golden amber color with a a hefty thick white head. Aromas of toasty malts, dough, slight floral notes. On the palate, thin body, easy to drink, with flavors toasty malts, sweet dough and vaguely bitter hops. Not impressed.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with an inch of white head. Leaves a ever-so-slight lace.

The nose is full of yeast as expected coupled with some straw notes.

The character makes me think of a farm and there are more straw notes. Slight noble hop bitterness but this is overpowered by the malty sweetness. There is plenty of yeast lingering in the beer and the overall character and mouthfeel is medium full.

Tasty keller bier/zwickel bier. This is my first of the style to my knowledge and I believe I have one more Yokel in the fridge! This would best served on a warm day in my mind.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Thanks mattafett!

A: Pours a murky apricot-straw body with very little head, no retention, no lace. This might be an old beer, especially since it's retired, but they sold it at the brewery recently, so....

S: Cereal grain. Spicy Noble hops and a touch of yeast. Not as pungent as I would like, but good.

T: A simple, moderate-strength flavor. I'm a little underwhelmed, but it's not bad. Grain / bread, a light hint of white pepper, and a touch of yeast in the finish. Has a nice grainy aftertaste when I exhale. It's serviceable.

M: Low carbonation, which doesn't do this one any justice. It should bring out the flavor more, actually, but the beer feels dead somehow.

D: Meh. Didn't care for it.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Hazy light gold color with a one finger head with decent retention. The aroma is not real strong, but I do pick up some lemon and yeast. The flavor has lemon, yeast, hay, grass, and biscuit malt.

Light bodied with low carbonation. A nice, easy to drink beer which is complex for 4.2% abv. Too bad this is being retired. Maybe I will be able to find a few more bottles on my next trip to Hudson.

Had a bottle left over from last summer tucked away in my in laws fridge. I see now that it is 'out of print.'

Pours pale golden yellow. hazy translucent. Minimal foam, but cloudy.

Light citrus smell with minor malt. Faint.

Light creamy lemon taste with minimal carbonation. Citrus finish.

Simple, uncomplicated, and good. Well made.
