IndianaRed (2190) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Bottle Pours a crystal clear, very light pale gold color witha very large fluffy white head and substantial lacing. Aroma is a pleasant, slightly sweet grain, bready honey smell. Flavor is crisp, bready with some maltiness, and a not very strong hops slant. Nicely balanced. Fel is light and quick, and the trailer is a slight hoppy bite. Easy going down. Not bad, for a pils.

bitbucket (2159) - 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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pours a amber gold. Small white head, sparse lacing and lively carbonation. Aromas of malts, hops and a spice that I cannot put my finger on. The flavor is of malt, tangy hops; citrus maybe, some bitter, and more of the spice. Fairly smooth with a tangy bite at the end.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 From the bottle 9/5/05

Pours a mid-range golden, almost clear with an amply-sized white head.

The aroma is grassy hops, a hint of lemon, and unfortunately, a swampy skunky muck. The taste is surprisingly bitter, with a blast of strong and bitter hops that, though unexpected in a pilsner, was not unpleasant. Unfortunately, the skunky murky flavor that followed was unpleasant, as is the metallic aftertaste that still remains in my mouth. As the beer warmed, the skunk got skunkier.

I’d like to like this beer, but I’ll have to try it again. This bottle just wasn’t any good. 6/3/5/3/10=2.7

Tap at Wild Ginger (the Olive Garden of Asian fusion, IMHO) in Seattle. Much, much better on tap than it was in the bottle. Entirely drinkable, enjoyable, hoppy and pretty crisp. 7/4/7/3/14 = 3.5. I’ll average them out.
