COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Pilsner and Vienna malts and a light touch of noble hops, this light, pale lager is malty yet crisp and refreshing.

This just won a bronze medal at the GABF and I was anxious to see how good it really was. So I got a pint of this at the Bear Republic Brewpub in Healdsburg on my trip through there yesterday. The pour was a clear gold color with a small white head typical of a pub pour, and very sticky lacing The nose is very crisp with malts and grassy hops leaping out to greet you. The mouthfeel is about as clean and smooth as a beer can get, and the flavor shows caramel malts, nice complex hops with citrus, flowers, and some banana. The finish on the beer is remarkable, with a light bitterness that lingers. This is a remarkable beer, and while in a way it reminds me of Pilsner Urquel it is superior in every way, which is probably why it won a medal. Seems to me to be about as perfect as a pilsener can get.

Poured up on tap at the Tempe Mellow. It has a pale straw slightly hazy body that supports a fairly tight near white head. The aroma offers up grainy malts, a dash of lemon and then some faint sour mash notes mixed with Pilsner malts. The taste has some fresh fairly crisp yet nearly vague hoppy notes that have a slight lemon to lime citrus edge to them. It gets into some sweet to grainy malts to midway and into the finish along with faint Pilsner malts. Nice hot weather brew.

I really enjoyed this sample. Pours a light yellow. Very crisp and clean. Hop notes jump out but then fade into the background leaving a nice little cereal taste. Yet another good pils with a bad rap on RateBeer

On draught at 2014 LagerFest. Crisp light golden color. Aroma is caramel apple, grass, and biscuit. Taste is crisp apple, biscuit, and light caramel. Refreshing and clean.

Draught at the Bear. I’ll admit that pickings were slim as they looked to be making space for their gabf roll out next week, but this was a nice pils. Gold with a small head. Bready malt and grainy aroma with just a touch of floral hops. Clean and dry flavor with moderate pale malt, a touch of spicy hops, and medium bitterness in the finish. Light and crisp. Satisfying.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with a creamy white head. Nice lightly fruity aroma. Near med body. Pleasant fruity/bready taste with a nice hoppy/bitter finish.

marcus (6511) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 3, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours clear blonde with a nice white head and a light floral aroma. There is a clean pilsner malt flavor that is pretty hefty for a lager, and a dry slightly bitter finish.

On draft. It pours a clear pale yellow with a tall frothy white head. The aroma is strong with malty grains, lemongrass and noble hop earthy spice. The flavor is a bit light with subdued noble hop character and more intense maltiness. Crisp and clean. Enjoyable.

Draft. Clear yellow-gold color with a one finger white head. Pilsner aroma, rather grassy. Pilsner malt flavor with medium grassy hop bitterness. Medium-light body with a good carbonation level. Impressive pils overall.

16oz, $8 at BrewRiver. Clear golden color. Good thin sort of rocky white head. Leaves impressive, more full lace. Lighter body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Light bready pilsner malts. Good crisp hop profile, bit of grass, nice moderate bitter taste. Lightly spicy hop. Great pilsner, very crisp and enjoyable. What about this is "double", though? It is a mystery
