3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Slightly hazy, but firm and golden. Nice solid pillowtop. This is a sturdy, biscuit-laden pils with a tight but creamy exterior and interior, and a grassy-hoppy finish. Good schtuff. (#5877, 12/3/2014)

Taster on tap at Twenty Tap. Labeled "Show Me Your Tetts". Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Half hazy pale golden color. Thin ring of white head, not much lace sticks. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Good light spicy pepperiness to it. Bready malt, good bit of pepperiness, hint of citrus. Awesome, flavorful, complex, easy drinking pils. Had no problem finishing my taster.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, pale gold color with a small white head. Aroma of straw, grass, pale malts, lemon, mild spice, crackers, and herbs. Distinctly German in nature. The flavor matches the aroma. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a smooth, refreshing mouthfeel. Very nice pils.

On tap at brewpub
Sample number two was a fine light sessionable pils. Once again it is great to see AtG going for more accessible styles. Nailing this one shows they are better at more than just 7%+ hop (and / or) malt bombs.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden bubbly base and minimal head provide the perfect place for the bouquet of mildly sour hops, caramel, and ripe lemons. Noble hops hold it together like the spine of a book.
Flavor / Palate - Citrus glazed over a rich piece of cheesecake softens the palate. Lemon rinds and dry pie crust finish a mild mannered but balanced profile. Without a doubt this is a beer I would recommend not just to tickers but to anyone who wants to know what is out there besides BMC.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 On tap at the Irish Rover. Aroma of crackery, toasty malts with some moderate lemony, noble hops. Appearance is gold with white head. Flavor matches the nose with slight toast, and a more intense (but by no means overwhelming) noble character. Palate is light, creamy and average. Good Pils.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear yellow orange with white head. Aroma musty malt. Taste is a little funk with nice bitter balance. Bitter after taste goes a little to long.
