FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 1, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle. A - Nice, clear, golden copper color. About average sized, creamy, frothy, soap, pearly white head. Average retention with a nice frothy lace left. S - Slightly odd, but not off-putting, aroma. Floral and herbal hops come out along with a fair amount of apple/cider aroma. Some pale and biscuit like malt aroma also has a good presence. T - Similar to the nose. Some floral herbal hops along with a spicy grassy flavor. These hoppy flavors are present, but they are not strong by any means. Mid-sip, an apple fruitiness comes out. Bready and pale malt provides a lot of the backbone to this beer. Minerally taste on the finish. M - On the fuller side for a pilsner with a touch above average carbonation. Slick, oily feel with a sticky, sweet residue on the finish. D - I don’t necessarily want to drink many of these with sweetness and the lingering sticky feel being a little off putting. Not really enough hops and the apple flavor is just a little odd. Notes: A little strange tasting beer. It is different from a pilsner in taste. Not a big fan of the way the apple comes out, and a little sweet (not necessarily in a nice sweet bready malt way that some of the great pilsners pull off). Probably not worth the price to get this, even though it isn’t a horrible beer, there are better choices.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a pale golden color with a medium creamy head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of husky, grainy notes and a faint metallic note. The taste is pale malty notes, caramel and faint green apple, as well as agrassy hops. Medium bodied.

DuffMan (7027) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle, enoyed at Boka in Chicago. Clear golden, average white head. Sweet cereal grain aroma, hints of berry fruit. Sweeter makt palate, again with the subtle berry fruit, a little metal in the finish.

adnielsen (9460) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2011 Tasted on tap at Breckenridge Brewery in Denver, Colorado. Light yellow appearance with a creamy-white head. Malty, light aroma. Light malty flavor with a presence of hops actually. Not too bad.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2010
12oz bottle 10/15/10 (Binny’s)-50° in Lager glass. Pours a clear medium golden with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, malt, and grains. Taste of hops, citrus, and grass. This medium bodied brew is not bad but for the price($14 a six) there are much better choices. I don’t understand with their Small Batch series why they can’t produce a more reasonably priced brew. Afterall, there is competition with better product and prices or am I paying for the etched bottles??????

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Light golden. Nice white head. Light, summery, and floral aroma. Thick, malty, viney flavor. Green sinew or somethimg. Yeah that’s kinda freaky. Too heavy for the snow, that’s for sure, and thr finish sits heavy on the tongue.

brokensail (11532) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a clear copper color with an initially fluffy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. S: The nose is sort of odd to me. There are some good floral hop aromas, but a very strong metallic tinge to it as well. Some light grass and malt notes, too. T: Luckily, an improvement in terms of the flavor. The hops are quite floral and pungent. A slight spice character to this one along with some fairly sweet malt, sugar, and apple juice. M: The body is on the full side for a pilsner with a moderate carbonation. D: The flavor of this was nice, but the nose was just not enjoyable. Not sure what happened there, but such is life.

zathrus13 (1723) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is malt, hops, and honey. Flavor is honey, malt, grain, hops, and fruit. It’s a bit astringent on the finish. Medium body.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Almost nose grass in the nose, just sunny pale malt and citrus, perhaps a touch of peel amid the dough and faint yeast. Golden pour with a creamy, rocky white head. Taste is sweet but not cloying, a little closer to neutral, actually, with a bland malt profile that reminds of certain kinds of bland bread. Medium body is creamy and cleansing. Some light caramel and a super nice malty backbone. Really, this could pass for a charged, intense golden ale, but there’s not enough sharp bite or hop presence to qualify as a pils, let alone a special or double. Very noble, though.
