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.

Pours clean bright yellow, finger white head. Smell simple wet grain and lager yeast. Taste a bit hoppy, grain and bread. Light body. Simple but good.

andrewje41 (1195) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Draft pour pint at the fields location. Pours a darker copper color with a patchy foam cream head. Nearly absent grain aroma. Flavor is light and crisp as expected, but not a lot of flavor going on. A slightly offputting grain finish. Could be a while lot worse, but just more not my kind of beer. Drinkable for sure.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Draft at Elysian on Capitol Hill in Seattle on 7/12/07. Clear gold with a medium white head, looks like a good Pils. Grainy, grassy aroma with a hint of hoppiness. Medium body, but a touch of stickiness on the palate, not quite as clean as I like to see with a Pils. Pretty decent bitterness over a light malty base, but with some soapiness in the aftertaste. Not bad, but just a little off in flavor and mouthfeel for a Pils.
