3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a nice little head. The nose has sweet lemon and malt. The taste is more sweet lemon but getting into orange and lots of creaminess in the background. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy textuer through the middle section and it nicely cleans at the finish. Overall, while it doesn’t seem particularly complex it is very well balanced and very drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from The Brauhaus. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast primarily with some lemon citrus character. Flavours of caramel, yeast and barley. Foamy mouth-feel. The IPA is in another league.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours brown-streaked yellow from bottle with 2 fingers of rapidly dissipating head. Aroma smells like corn mash. Taste is metallic but the finish does have a tad of bite to it. A beer for those that like beer flavored beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2013 On tap. Pours with a very slightly hazed golden yellow body with a thick and creamy white head. Aromas are bready, floral, toasty, with a very light hint of caramel. Slightly soggy malt, and some minerality. Medium esters and a hint of honey. Flavors are bready, decently bitter, grainy, toasty. Mild diacetyl. Straw, slightly sweet. Medium to lively bubbles, a bit thin.
Golden Pils (with Ale yeast), according to the bottle: WHY would they label it that way? Pours with a pale yellow hued body. Clear, small white head. Aromas are grainy, a bit fruity with light sulfur. Flavors are fruity, very grainy, straw. Lively bubbles, dry and crisp. Way too fruity to be a pilsner though!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Eureka! Rating #83. Clear golden pour with a decent white head that left some nice lacing. Light hoppy aroma a little biscuity. Big hop flavor, real nice balance between bitter and the malts, nice beer. (1785)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Nice grain profile gives this a lot more flavor than I was expecting. A touch of peppery herbs and spice. Nice gateway beer for these guys with a much bigger presence for a beer of this style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Surprisingly boozy aroma from a crystal clear light amber. Not a lot of head with just a small layer towards the end of the glass. Citrus flavor and nicely bitter. Clean and crisp finish. Not bad.
