3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2013
draft and cans. filtered gold with a white head of average retention. grassy, lightly spicy, lightly juicy, heavily musty German hop nose with sweetish baked cracker pilsner malt. lightly toasty and grainy / rough with medium-low carbonation, medium acid, a touch of something I will call "crunchy" but could otherwise be described as overly-toasty, combined with overuse of noble hops to produce something a bit rough around the edges, bordering on caustic, but kept inline by sweet-enough pale malt. yeast could be cleaned up but otherwise I’d say they have something going here.

onceblind (4512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Beerliner Truck, GABF 2012. Pale grainy nose with a prominent and firm spicy saaz hop presence, grassy and aromatic. Flavor is light on body but huge on flavor. Big pale grain malty body with a firm bready/biscuit undertone, accompanied by a big grassy spicy saaz hop flavor with ample bitterness and a clean grassy finish. Pretty dang assertive pils, in a good way.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Can thanks to Mar. Pours a bright, crystal clear gold with soapy white head. Aroma has a nice grassiness with a pleasant grainy pilsner back bone. Flavor is very much the same, a bit off-dry, light earthiness and a nice, non aggressive hop bitterness in the finish. Light body with high carbonation. Overall, solid beer!!! Nicely refreshing.
