Of the Sampler Pak I bought in Ft. Collins, this was my favorite beer. Classic Pilsner taste, clean and crisp, very drinkable. Started as well as it finished. I would stock this beer in my cellar. I enjoyed this one very much!!!

Tap at brewpub may 2012-pours very pale yellow with a small soapy white head. nose of sulfur and mushy grains. flavors of pale grain husks, sulfur and lite spicy hops. not much going on here-more of a pale lager than a pils. meh.

That1Guy (1882) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2012
12 oz bottle pours a slightly hazy brite yellow with a lingering white head. Earthy, malty, slightly hoppy aroma, with a hint of hay and grass. Flavor of light malt, light hops, and some more grass. Finishes crisp and refreshing. A nice, sessionable, tasty pils.

Bottle @ home. Clear, yellow appearance with a cream colored head. Light skunk, grassy, hay, a bit herbal, pils malty aroma. Light vanilla, grainy pils malty, straw, hay, light fruity flavor with a dry, straw finish. Pretty decent.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Draft @ taproom. Bright yellow. Spicy hop overtones, but the real highlight is the really fresh bright pure pale malt. Quaffable beer. Good crisp spicy hops in the finish make it a winner. Although it doesnít stand up well to food, itís pretty nice.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2011
Slightly hazy straw. The aroma is quite herbal and continental. Some herbal character - half German, half Czech. Ok, but maybe a touch light. Goes better with food than it does on its own. Just enough bitterness.

swoopjones (5611) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2011
bottle. paler yellow, slightly hazed like a American hefe. light aroma of somewhat sweet malts and floral & perfumy hops. Taste/flavor is light sweetness, floral hops, clean summer ale. Unobtrusive, easy drinking uncomplex
