3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pre-volcanic bath pint (NOT recommended) at the bar of the Calistoga Inn, 14/08/12. Brassy, conditioned gold topped with white. Sappy, herbal, mown grass aroma. Bready, shrubby and nuanced with a lipsmacking drying bitterness accompanied by a shave of pith and orange. Fizzy but it suits. Curd on crackers. VERY pilsener-ish. "Awesome!"

Tap at the brewpub. The body was bright gold with a slight haze and a thick head. The aroma was soapy with some flowers and potato. The taste was sweet potatoes with some light hints of apple core. Drinkable but with a vegetable finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very clean pilsner- to both the nose and the tongue. Fuller bodied than most that I’ve tried, smooth on the tongue. Enough malty flavor that I would order it again.
