Generously received this beer from StormKing47 as he answered my Scratch beer call. Drank from my Black Butte Porter pint glass while doing what I do best, drinking and grilling.

Appearance- Pours a light orange with the slightest flecks of yellow with a really small fizzle head. Not much of a cap or collar remain and obviously no lacing.
Smell- Yeasty and lightly dirty (in a way) with a largely malt presence. Maybe a tinge of sweetness in the smell with a fair amount of raw dough. The lightest kiss of hops probably sort of aids that yeast dirtiness I get.
Taste- Much the same. Starts ever so slightly sweet with a doughy biscuit maltiness that IS the beer. A touch of yeast and the lightest bit of earthy hop on the finish. That's it.
Mouthfeel- Pretty hefty for the beer with a nice almost creamy feel with pretty medium carbonation.
Drinkability- Not a huge fan of the lager (or anything of the type) but this isn't horrible. I'd drink the shit out of this on the golf course or mowing. Thanks much Josh!

Yet another one from number1bum over on BA.

Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a fizzy one finger white head that quickly dies down to a thin layer of foam. Bits of lacing left of the sides of the glass, not a whole lot. Aroma is pretty weak. Corn, bread, lemongrass, and earth in the nose...not much else. Taste is a nice step up. Spicy herbal hops attack the tongue first off with a nice biscuit malt base. Lemon and floral earth with a touch of honey on the tongue as well. Feel is light and crisp with a nice steady carbonation, very solid summer beer. Drinkability is definitely up there, and probably one of the better qualities of this beer. Nothing crazy here other than a quaffable drink on a hot day. I'll have no problem with a sixer of this, keep 'em coming Tröegs!
