3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thin head on a clear, golden colored body. A few bubbles coming up and good lacing.
It has a faint lemon smell.
The taste is moderate bitterness throughout with a sweet finish. Nice profile.
Crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.
A tasty lager and good too.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Auburn Alehouse. Clear golden pour with a white head. Kind of citrusy and a little bit on the lemony/tangy side. Maybe a bit skunky? Pretty grassy as well. The flavor is a touch bitter, but I guess that’s appropriate. A lot of grass, lemon peel, and straw. Too much apple peel for me, though.

On at @ AA
This is the way a pilsner should taste. Clean, crisp malt flavor mingling with peppery, grassy hops with just a twinge of sourdough-like tartness in there. My mouth is watering for another one. Great brew.

"actually pretty good for a pilsner, but pales (no pun intended) compared to Auburn’s BIG ales. Pleasing aroma, crisp and refreshing, but nothing that stands out."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. Very clear, very light yellow. Light grassy hops in the nose. Medium bitterness with a light rassy hop and hay flavor. Not too bad I guess. Would like more hops in the flavor.

Tap at the brewhouse. Decent representation of the style, bit more forward in the hop department, which is nice.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with a white head. Light aroma of something. Med minus body. Flavor is enough grassy/spicy hop to hide most of the breadinesss. Bitter is decent and grows into the finish. Better than many "pils".

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear, light gold color with a white head. The aroma is nice with worty grains and drier lager yeast. The flavor has earthy, bitter hops and a dense maltiness. Well balanced with strong bitterness in the finish. I liked this one.
