COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like a plunge down a hair-raising stretch of white water, this beer will leave you refreshed and wanting more. Premium German pilsner malt and select hop varieties are the hallmark of this delicate golden lager. A month of cold fermentation and aging creates a smooth character that's light on the palate yet satisfying.

Tap @ Chama River. Pours a clear, light yellow appearance with a white head. Somewhat sweet malty, straw, grassy aroma. Chewy grainy, sweet lemon water, fairly bitter flavor. Bleh.

On tap 4 oz. sampler at Chama River restaurant in Albuquerque, NM. Very clear pale yellow with white head and good lacing. Aroma of pilsener malt and hops. Taste of floral hops and pilsener malt. Light body and high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear gold with a bit of white head. A clasic pils; clean with hints of fruits. Refreshing and I don’t generally like pilsners...I would say it rivals or surpasses those I had in Czech!

Hazy straw. Husky palate. Not much aroma. Grainy, corn-tasting faux-macro. I moved on quickly from this one.

Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with a slight cereal note on the aroma. Creamy smooth taste. It’s quite refreshing without actually tasting like anything.

Yellow with creamy white head and lace. Light paper and a dry corn. Flavor of paper, light malt, and a light bitter. A tad thin and fizzy

on tap-pours a white head and yellow color. Aroma is soft sweet grain, some grassy. Taste is sweet grain-honey, secondary grassy hops bite. Fizzy.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Pours a very clear yellow-straw color with a white head that quickly recedes and does not really leave behind any lacing. The nose is light grain and a bit of corn. The flavor is quite plain with slight grain and some vegetal flavors. Mouthfeel is really thin and a bit watery. Drinks fairly poorly and was not all that good. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-08-2010

Sampled, pours a clear straw color with very light head and aroma of bread and slight hay. Taste follows the aroma with a very lagerish type taste i cant quite describe. A very good example of a malty light lager.
