BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2002
Fuller in appearance than most pilseners--tangerine in color and well carbonated. The aroma is rather skunky, though after some time, spicing is more detectable. This is a moderately complex pilsner with some piny/hoppy components. Fairly smooth with some positive qualities, but the smell detracts from the experience.

DYCSoccer17 (3313) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2006
5 ounce sample on tap at Tangletown Publick House in Seattle. Citrus, perfumey, floral aroma. I also detect some slight lemon-like acidity. Doesn’t smell overly like a pils, but aroma is decent, nonetheless. Transparent golden color with a frothy whitish head and really nice lacing. Hoppy bitter start with more floral hops present. Dought and biscuity malts in the middle with a bit of lingering bitter hops to finish. Very hoppy, doesn’t really seem like a true pils to me.

puzzl (3249) - 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.

SrSilliGose (3248) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 19, 2010
Tap at brewpub. Phone rate. Pours a clear golden with a small offwhite head. Nice lace. Notes of stomped hay, dirty toast, lemongrass, and bread. Crisp. Good.

theisti (3224) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Shaker pint draft at Wild Ginger in Seattle, Washington. Pour is deep golden, almost orangish. Small white head. Aroma of fruit and straw hops, followed by grainy maltiness. Nice fresh nose. Taste has a nice grainy maltiness, with the floral, apple fruit and straw hoppiness. Palate is thin to medium, crisp and clean. Nice Pils.

TimE (3154) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 9, 2004
Tastes more like an American wheat, but with a more hopped finish. European hops are noticable, but not full bodied enough.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 9, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 (22 oz bottle) A rather light flavored pilsener, which is surprising for a Pacific Northwest beer; Still, this is at least a dry, hops balanced pilsener in the PNW style, with a moderately bitter and dry finish; Fairly hoppy, and lightly malty nose; Light golden in color; Massively carbonated head when poured is off-white in color and very bubbly, and is supported by a fairly steady assault of carbonation bubbles, but as it gradually dies down, a large mesa-like formation is created by the head, and dense patches of lacing are left on the glass

This beer was a tad bit overly hopped. I have to agree with Per. This one has some flaws, sure, but alot of beers do, and I am not going to call it out on just a couple of complaints. Overall this is a very goo easy drinking pils, with a strong biscuity malt character. Some grassy hops, with a light to medium bodied mouthfeel. Not bad overall.

BuckeyeBoy (2695) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2009
On Tap At Elysian Fields Seattle. Pours out a clear straw topped with a white head. Aroma was of sweet honey and wheat. Taste was some grainy malt, a little floral hop and some fruit sweetness.
