Blond color, hazy. Off-dry pilsner, with a light grassy hint. Easy but not too bad.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
Pale straw coloured pour. The nose is softly bitter. A touch of diacetyl that could be done without. Pretty nice hoppiness though. Noble spicy hoppiness and a touch of spiciness.

bhensonb (11043) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Tap at the taphouse. Pours light yellow with a white head. Very grassy aroma. Flavor is bready, grapey, and grassy. Finishes towards dry.

neepsntatties (1208) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2011
On tap at Cabezon (a restaurant in my neighborhood). Colour... very pale gold with a thick head. Nose... floral with jasmine and laurel. Palate... quite frothy with bits of noble hops and a light, crisp lemony character. Whereas this may not be the pils most people expect (a north German style), it is quite refreshing and would do well on a summer’s eve whilst dining out of doors.

On tap @ Plews. Pours a clearish yellow with a large white head. Smell is offensively vegetal with hints of spicy hops. Taste is spicy and nutty with slight hints of vegetable flavors. A bit overcarbonated.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2010
A clear blonde pils with a thick lacing white head. In aroma, a classic light chalky malt, lightly grainy. In mouth, a smooth refreshing pils with biscuitty malt, light czech hops, a nice summer pils. On tap at Hair of the Dog, Sept. 4, 2010.

Not one of my favorite pilsners but anything to steal thunder from the industrial is a major improvement. Pours a nice yellow. A bit sparkly. Has some of the pils metallic notes that my tastebuds pick up at the faintest of levels. OK.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 30, 2009
Draft at Siskiyou Micro Pub. Nose of floral hops, caramel, french bread, and a light piney note. Clear gold with a big heavily lacing white head. Flavor is light fruitiness, caramel, and light bitterness.
