3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 Draft... Crystal clear, light yellow lager. Creamy, white head with no lacing. Doesn’t matter; the head lasts forever.
The aroma is very subtle. Toffee and straw in the nose with notes of white pepper and a hint of pear.
Malty with plenty of malty caramel flavor and hopped just enough for balance.
Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Short, bitter, clean finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: On tap at the Brew Pub, 9/5/09
Aroma: Grain, light fruit, apple/pear, straw
Appearance: Clear blonde color, very light
Flavor: Light flavor, but tasty, good fruity/grainy character, and mild hop character as well
Palate: Clean and thin, light body
This beer was OK, had a decent amount of flavor for the style, my qualm with it would be that I found it to be thin and light, but other then that it was pretty decent, not a great beer, but drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From draught sample at brewpub. Mild pilsner aroma with bit of herbal hops to it. Pale yellow clear with thin white lacing head. Light body with light-medium carbonation. Starts with a bit of pilsner malt sweetness and light acidity. Mellow with mild bitter hops finish. Would appeal to light/pale lager drinkers as a crossover. Clean finish; a bit soft.
