Draft at the brewpub as "Saaz Monster." Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malts with lemony, spicy hops. The taste is big lemon hops, mild caramel malts. Medium bodied.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Sampled on draft at Dís in Monroeville this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was tart, crisp, floral, grassy and a touch perfumey. The flavor was dry and bitter with lemongrass and perfume. The finish was long, dry and hoppy. Light body. Eh.

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Comes in a pint glass looking like pineapple juice; almost opaque bright yellow with zero head. Nose is mild, light pepper, light yeast, light hops. Was supposed to be the 2nd hoppiest beer on the menu with 35IBUs. Flavor was bland, wet white bread, light yeast, fake lemon. Watery finish. Not a good start.

cheap (3803) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2011
No visible co2 in this pale beer. Clean aroma with barely any smell. On the palate it is quite flat also. Quite strong pils bitter bite but it mellows as the session continues. Goes down fairly easy. Finish is OK with a mild medium noble hop linger that seems a little like chewing on an old rubber inner tube. On tap at the Works.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thin white head. Aroma of pale bready malts and a touch of bitter hops. Flavor is more floral with hop bitterness and pale malts. More pilsener than hoppy pilsner but itís drinkable. 6/4/7/4/13 (3.4/5)

rudolf (2310) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Tap @ Brewpub. Nose is essentially not there - very light peppery hop, extremely light malt character. Flavor is light honey, a tiny bit of toasted malt & soda water with undefined hop character - they are there, but donít really express themselves at all.

Draft at the brew pub over the summer. Pours light golden with thin white head and lacing. Slightly lemon nose. Taste of straw with faint lemon. Hoppy, light and refreshing.

Was not terribly impressed... Saaz character was there, but the pilsner malts and bitterness wasn't as prevalent as should be expected... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft 5 oz. light golden. Aroma is unique. Hops, leather, slight musk, mint. Light to medium light bitterness. Average carbonation. I enjoyed this.
