22oz bottle picked up last year in Pittsburgh, I think (was it D’s Six Packs and Dogs?). Been in the back of the fridge for awhile. Pours an attractive deep clear golden with a white head. Aroma is a subtle mix of maltyness and herbal hops. Flavor has notes of grain, grass, hay, lemon and zesty noble hops. The bitterness is ample but this ends with a tinge of malty sweetness. The body is medium, round and creamy with lively carbonation. Nice drinkin’ beer.

22oz bottle 4/12/09 (Woodmans-Green Bay)-Pours a clear golden body with a small white covering for a head. If this is retired then I just purchased a really old bottle. Aroma of hops, grass, and grains. Taste is of hte same with some malt and a little bit of skunk coming in. This light bodied brew is not bad but a little too sweet.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Dark gold body with a large white head. Plenty of small, fast moving bubbles in the lager glass. Funnel cake and light notes of Saaz in the nose. This drinks fairly easy with some biscuit and then sharp celery coming through in the finish. There is also a little bit of black pepper, but it’s only after you swallow. As I drank more, the vegetable sharpness became more like an incessant spice in a food. Decent, but could have used some more balance with a little bigger body for the hops.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2008
Straw color with a moderate off-white head. Aromas of grass, grain, dry erase markers, light raisins and other light fruit. Euro lager maybe, Euro Pils not; at least not from the scent. Lightly floral dough flavors. Lightly grainy and a bit dry. Really not much of a pilsener. A lager with pilsener tendencies, but not enough malt or hops definition to make a solid brew. Too sweet , not that crisp and clean. Not quite there in many a ways.

hayduke (3372) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 30, 2007
From a 22 oz bottle, this poured a cloudy yellow with a very small head. Mouhtfeel somewhat light. Not much nose, and what there was consisted of malts and grassy hops. Flavor was light malts with slight bitterness. Somewhat bitter finish. Somewhat ordinary pils.

ABUSEDGOAT (2394) - California, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Hazy golden, moderate head, solid lacing and retention. Aroma is lightly grassy, some buttery goodness, grain, a touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, somewhat sweet finish with moderate bitterness. However, it felt off to me as it doesn’t have the finesse of the better examples out there. I would have preferred a little more hop flavor and less malty sweetness.

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 3, 2007
650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Yellow with a fizzy white head. Bready aroma. Grainy bready taste with a hint of citrus and more hops evident than I expected.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Slightly hazy golden, light head formation. Taut, biscuity malt with a fairly sharp evergreen hoppiness - refreshing pils aroma. Dry, biscuity maltiness, doughy. Crystal clear, fairly strong bitterness rings through. Dry, ultraclean finish, leaving you with bits of lightly toasted biscuit sloshing around your mouth, long-lingering finish. I can tell they hit exactly what they were going for here.

Bottle. Nose is slightly herbal hops. Little bit of bitterness, some yeast and nutty malt flavors. An ok pilsner for a session.
