This Beer poured a medium pale color with a soapy white head,. There was decent lacing left on the glass. Over all it was an enjoyable beer, but nothing I would buy again.

From the right side of the label: "23:38 01 APR1918"

Appearance: The body is a slightly hazy gold. It has a medium sized fluffy white head that has good retention.

Aroma: There is a sweet-smelling grain aroma with a bit of an herbal and flowery hop scent.

Taste: Up front there is a pretty nice herbal hop flavor that comes through rather well. It has a bit of a lemon flavor and tastes just a bit like thyme. It carries this flavor throughout the beer.

Mouthfeel: It feels just a tad muddy between the bitterness and this faint texture that rubs the lighter body. It does have a very good bitterness though. It has a wet finish.

Overall: It was a good beer and I would drink it again from time to time. For the most part it focuses on this herbal and lemon character which gives your palate something to cling to and remember this beer by.

Bottle, kindly shared by gunnar. Pale yellow colour, moderate white head. Sweetish aroma, herbal hops. Fairly decent flavour of herbal hops. A pale lager better than average.

had this at an outside bar at the beach. paired with a new england style lobster roll. poured into a 16 oz plastic cup. golden yellow with nice head of foam. little lacing and no retention. aroma was of faint fruits/pine. Taste was slightly sweet with a hint of citrus. mouth feel was slightly watery but smooth. very refreshing on a hot summer day
