Named for the dam workers who packed all the explosives, this beer is flavorful and refreshing, yet not filling. Pilsen and Carapils malt give this brew a light, malty character and straw color. The palate is balanced with three hops – Northern Brewer and Tettnanger from Germany and Styrian Goldings from Slovenia.

Sampler at the source. Clear golden with a small white head in the glass. Hop and grain on the nose. Taste has some malt and hop on a low level. Some hop bitterness, smooth. Easydrinker. Okay.

Sigh...another light generic beer that could be a pilsner or a blonde or a lager...or who the hell cares. I know there ain;t many choices here, but this ain’t tryin.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Where and how: at brewery (sampler)
Aromafloral milder herbal nose. Mild with proper clean lager vibe.
Appearance :
Top: large, white tasting cap with white rings on glass.
Base: clear and gold.
Palate : tad too soft for Pils maybe more like Helles in feel.
Taste: good approach, solid nice hop presentation. Body development is good but needs some carbonation to expose them in better way.

On tap. Pours a golden color with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of grass, malt and straw and some hops. Similar aroma. Has a medium body with a bitter finish. Easy to drink, but a bit bitter.

stevoj (4016) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Another nice looking beer, but lacking the crisp hop pilsener character. Tends to be watery, bland. Not much flavor here.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2013
Yellow/gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is skunky. Flavor is perfumy, skunky, and just not good. Thin and watery and fizzy. A beer that was off.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Appearance was clear pale straw with creamy diminshing white 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet pils malt with slight citrus hops. Taste are sweet pils malt upfront, then soft lemony hops backend. Palate was smooth soft CO2 with light body, then average light lemony dryish finish. Simple Pils brew...
