Draft at DRE. Poured medium golden with 1-fingr white head. Nose was pale malt, citric hops, some fruit and honey. Tasted very fruity, with a nice hoppy and pale malty balance. This is one of the better pale lagers I have ever had.

What a refreshing lager. Crystal clear, yellow, bubbly. Not enough beers like this one around. Great hop character. Crisp finish, could drink a bunch of these.

On tap at Capone’s.
Pours a clear golden color with a single-finger white head and some nice sticky lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a bit of straw and grain along with a strong thrust of floral hops. Lots of nobility in this one. Some herbal characteristics as well, though mostly floral. The flavor is a really nice split between light straw-like grain and a robust bouquet of Noble hops. Really, really beautifully done. Light and crisp with a moderate-to-heavy bitterness (for the style) in the finish. Really excellent. What an example of what this style could be. Very, very well done, sirs.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Nodding Head. Pours the classic clear gold with a medium fizzy white head. Aroma has notes of perfume and orange peel. Flavor has IPA-like hoppy notes: mainly perfume and slightly juicy with the orange peel. Really good hop rush that slowly fades. Rich and enjoyable lager.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A clean and moderately hoppy blonde lager. Basic decent session beer.
How: Tap at Capones PA, first RBSG 2011 bus-trip pit-stop
The look: Clear yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Typical clean lager nose with light grassy notes. Taste is fresh cereals, some refreshing tropical fruits, a light tartness, some dry grassy hops with a light spicy twist. A straightforward session Premier Lager that could pass as a Kellerbier. I drank this one during our first pit-stop of the RBSG 2011 bus trip after drinking a bunch of beers in the bus. I was already drunk and it was only 11am, does that make me a drunk or just totally awesome? I vote for totally awesome

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a bright yellow clor a little lighter than gold with a white head. Aroma was of dusty and grassy hops and pale malt. Flavor was much better than expected given the description. Hops just under the threshold for a pilsner maybe, and the schlitz yeast I was expecting to be bad but turned out surprisingly palatable.
