2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw yellow, moderate white head with early lace. Sweet pale malt, lightly hopped (herbal, grassy), with a mild bitter finish. Maybe this would be better on tap.

Tap at the Mont Lake Ale House.
Pours a very light gold with a modest head. Grassy, slightly sour aroma. Bready malts yield to a mild hop bitterness on the close. Perfectly refreshing even if unexceptional.

Fizzy yellow gold head leaves quickly. Nice bready aroma. Sweet bread, floral and grassy bittering hops in the finish. Not complex, but pleasant and crisp. A nice pils.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Oregon Brewers Festival, Portland, OR. Small white head that mostly diminished, virtually no lacing, minimal carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was malty,hoppy and grassy. Flavor was mildly malty, hoppy, crisp, and hints of citrus. Tingly mouthfeel and medium body. Quaffable and good given the style which I am not a big fan of. Worthy of a try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a hazy light golden witha fizzy white head. Spotty lacing. Light pilsner malt aroma. Just enough citurs zing to compliment. Mild soft malts, a little metallic note and a quite lively palatte. Crisp quick finish. Not bad for a style I have trouble with.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
As usual, this Montana beer finds its way into my glass courtesy of the most generous Skyview. A slightly hazy dark yellow beer with a solid grainy nose and a little bit of hops. The grain in the body tasted a little stale and the hops yeilded a somewhat metallic taste, but that was ever so faint.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Pours a lightly cloudy straw yellow with a small quickely receding white head. Nice banana, as well as some sweet citrusy fruit, ans a slight flroal hoppiness. Kinda watery mouthfeel, but a nice floral hop bite. There is also a kinda funky stale bread flavor. Not terrible, but not too great.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from the Oregon Brewers festival poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a slightly hazy yellow colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty and banana. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and mild hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
