billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Tap. Hazy yellow w diminishing white head. Min lace. Aroma was weak. Flavor of Urquel type pils with the minerals noticable. A bit of sweetness noticable early on but fading quickly into a nice tart bitterness that lasts into the finish. Just a touch viscous and creamy. Nice pils flavor for me. It hit the spot with a caesar salad on this hot day. If I’m in the mood for a decent pils, I will not hesitate to enjoy more.

(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on October 17, 2007. Pours a thin white hea and a clear golden body. Nose of light Saaz hops and a bready malt. Flavour is nicely balanced and very fresh. I like the thickness of the palate with a mild bitterness in the finish. I thought this was pretty good.

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.
