riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Light golden yellow pour with big bubbles and a thin head. Aroma is a nice mix of light sweetness and Saaz hops. Drinks with a grainy sweetness and a good bitterness/grassiness. Crisp and well balanced, clean pilsner.

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2008
On draught at the Elysian brewery in Seattle, Washington. Pours a hazy golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates to a thin ring and film top. Aroma of golden grain malt, mild spice and herbs with an earthy and flowery hop scent. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt and some crystal and earthy hop flavors. Finish is light crisp with a mild bitterness. A nice summer pils with a crisp aftertaste.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale golden beer, thin white head. Aroma is quite grassy and herbal. Lightly floral with lots of straw. Light bitterness. Ok, but underwhelming.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Major diacetyl here as this warms, especially in the flavor. Becomes undrinkable. Light hops at least partly cover up the butter. Tastes like bud with some decent czech hops added. Terrible.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2008
on tap at Blind Tiger. Slightly hazy golden in color with a small white head. Aroma: bready malts, alot of spicy saaz hops, and a touch of diacetyl. Taste: Alot of earthy saaz hops, pils malt, light to medium body, with a strong hop bitterness for the style.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Tap at BT> Pours a slight protien chill haze, with a very thin white head and very slight lacing- carbonation must have been tuned down too much. Aroma is nice at first- earthy saaz like hops, with nice nutty and bready pils malts- diacetyl is slight and comes out as it warms. Flavor is bready and toasty with tons of hops- but is almost too bitter and becomes a bit astringent. Finish is relatively clean and smooth- easy to drink despite its harsh bitterness.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Sample at the Pike Street location. Pours a clear golden-orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing throughout. Hops, yeast and malt in the nose. Light-bodied and effervescent with flavors of zesty hops, malt and milld yeast and spices. The finish is clean and hoppy with a light peppery and spiced aftertaste. Average overall.

mabel (7315) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2008
[1106-20080217] Tap @ Elysian Fields (Seattle, WA). Mild yeasty aroma. Clear, light orange brown body with a quick bubbly white head. Big grainy wake-up yeasty bread flavour has noticeable alcohol. Medium body. Average.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
On tap at Elysian, Seattle. Pours hazy light amber with a firm white head that leave concentric rings on my glass. Light-to-medium body and full carbonation. Maybe not a great example of the style, but a nicely sessionable beer.
