A: Bright yellow urine like colour, 1 finger white head. Clear filtered, almost no carbonation.

S: Malt, white grape, dry and wine like.

T: Malt, bitter, white grape, white wine, long bitter finnish following the initial bitter in quality. The bitterness is like a white grape fruit rind (as opposed to ruby red) toned down in strength. Dry finnish.

M: balance of body and carbonation makes it smooth. It’s a medium light body with medium low carbonation. Dry finnish.

O: Very pleasant, very balanced, to me it’s a great representation of this style. Keeps me sipping. Would go well with light meats like chicken breast with mozzerella.

A new beer from a new brewery I'd never heard of. Thanks again to Herr B. for a great trade.

22 ounce bomber, bottled on 8.26.12.

A -- Hazy pale straw color with a fluffy, long-lasting white head.

S -- Spicy hops right up front, my bet is on Hallertauer, maybe Tettnang. Mild DMS and some mellow grains.

T -- The flavor is very interesting; starting with the spicy hops and some mellow fruit esters folding into some grainy characters and mineral water then smooth, mellow Pils malt -- almost sweet. The finish is somewhat citric with spicy bitterness in the aftertaste and a lingering graininess from wheat malt.

M -- The mouthfeel is smooth to crisp with a light body and dry finish.

O -- A definite keeper and good quaffer over any long-haul. Delicious enough to keep you wanting another swallow without being overbearing on the palate.

A: Hazy lemon color. Head is minimal but stays for a good amount of time.

S: Light on the smell. A little lemon and yeast.

T: Smooth, lemon, yeast, good hop backbone. Balanced well. A lot of flavors for a lighter beer. Malt is there but not overpowering.

M: Sits great for a light beer. The bubbles are light on the palate and a good amount of malt comes through.

Overall a great go at the style. A good blend of flavors and has the perfect amount of body for a lighter beer. COAST seems to make some killer beers: I recommend grabbing one if you ever see it.

Served on tap at the brewery, in a pint glass. Poured a golden yellow, produced a large white head, featured excellent retention and left ample amount of lacing on the glass. The Aroma of this classic German style consisted of malted grain, pear and lemon rind. Light in body, this brew had an excellent smooth mouthfeel, a base of malted grain, earthy grass and a crisp finish. This is a nice version of the style, refreshing, great lawnmower beer, great session beer.

Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! About 6 oz poured into a beer mug.

A: Pours a light straw color with a surprising amount of cloudiness and strong looking carbonation. The head is a two finger white color with good retention and texturing.

S: Grassy hops and neutral malts - it doesn't blow me away with its aroma, but I can tell it's a very high quality product.

T: Incredibly smooth, with an initial hit of lemony esters. I love the finish, it's just about perfectly bitter with the grassy hops and balanced delicately. Slight touches of subtle complexity add to the experience of this. Just insanely good, plain and simple.

M: Light, crisp, refreshing, and just amazing. I have nothing to complain about here, it's so drinkable and easygoing without being boring.

O: Oh, wow. This one lives up to the hype in my opinion - I could totally kill multiple bombers of this in an hour's time; the drinkability is insane. I'm gonna search this one out in the future.
