mild fruity and floral aroma, sticky malt sweetness.
clear light orange, no head.
flavor is nicely balanced but a bit bland -- malty sweet with a clean crisp mild bitter finish.
appropriately medium-thin body.

On tap (2009) in a pint glass. Aroma is malty and the flavor is sweet malt with a grassy dryness that lingers. The body is a little much for me, but overall it’s a decent brew.

2009 Bottle of The Chosen Spot- Thanks Eyedrinkale! Pours clear orangeg with a small white head...aroma is full of rye spice and sweet citrus fruit, light hops and honey?...flavour is similar, sweet and grainy, much more rye in the nose than in the taste, but nicely fresh and bitter, sweet grass...finish is a bit hoppier and rounds it out nicely!

Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Nice nose. Fairly hoppy. Hints of leaves and grass. Light but enjoyable flavor. Very dry, crisp and refreshing. A very likable pilsener.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fairly standard lager-pilsner. Malty aroma with a bit of citrus. Light to medium bitterness, some biscuit flavor. Not bad, but pretty average all around - was hoping for something a little better.

Crisp hop aroma, grassy, earthy hops with hints of a spiciness. Pours clear golden blonde with a very thick white head. Earthy bitter hops with grassy notes, solid bitterness, with hints of sweet malts lingering with a spicy dry finish. Very nice pils!

nice and refreshing it has the hop character and spiciness of an American dry hoppend rye brew. it is refreshing and just a touch sweet (MAYBE TWO TOUCHES). it has some of the characters of an American Pilsener just spill some and wait few minutes and give it a sniff. it" smells like an old bar but this beer is quite impressive otherwise. Grapefruit hops in the spicy Pils presence this is a real good session ale for the choosey. $4.99 for a 22 oz bottle at whole foods in Manhattan ? hey that’s schmaltz!

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma is dry and lightly bitter with some sweet and fruity hints. Flavor is a nice pils flavor. Dry and floral at the beginning with some hoppy bitterness, a smooth and lightly sweet middle, and a very lightly bitter and lingering finish.
