Draft at the Whiskey Soda Lounge in Brooklyn while waiting for Pok Pok. Fun choice of a house beer, a lux version of the normal sweet lager available in SE Asian restaurants. Thick honey lager, very macro style but a bit cleaner, refined and tastes like better ingredients. Style isn’t great but this is a nice fun version.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Poor Phil’s in Oak Park, IL., and dispensed to a footed ale glass, showing a clear golden hue, with a decent, 1/2" hat of white foam, and ribbony lacing. The aroma was lager & pils scent, with sweet maltiness. The flavor included a hefty hop bitterness that was earthy & rindy, and complemented well by a noticeable alcohol presence, even at 5.5%. Better than light bodied, and crisp finishing.

12oz brown bottle, from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar ’13. Bright yellow pour with haze. Quite heady, white foam last a long while, big bubbles, lots of lace. Aromas of grains, some bready sweetness, bit of lemon and grassy hop. Flavours of grain, bready and big grassy hops. Ends dry, lots of grassy bitterness, lots of carbonation. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden beer, small head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is grainy, with some nice fruity hops and a note of banana. Tasty, especially for a pilsner. Still, the body is too thin. Low fermentation has its limits.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
@ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear light to medium amber, long lasting 1/2" white head, no lace. Taste is crisp malt with light sweet grass, that adds pleasant floral hops midway through the palate. Just a touch of sulfur in the finish completes an excellent example of the style. A particularly good, thirst satisfying brew. High recommendations.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 20.06.2013, tap @ Tørst:
Small mediumlasting head. Aroma is pretty neutral, light malts, leafs, newly cut lawn, hops, herbs, hay, pepper, hints of citrus peel. Taste is dry grassy, lots of hops, light malts, hay, newly cut lawn, herbs, caramel, yeast, bark. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel, high on carbonation. Nice enough, too dry and hoppy for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small fizzy head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is a mix of sweet cereal grain, skunk, and flowers. Taste is very hoppy and a bit harsh. Huge floral, herbal, and spicy hops, some light fruitiness. Finish is very dry and very bitter. Interesting pilsner but kinda hard to drink.

On tap at 28 Springs thanks to Casey. Pours a straw yellow with some haze. Two fingers of head. Some corn. Slightly grassy. Very nice beer and not a big fan of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Grassy and sweet nose, very clean and a bit minerally. Very light straw with a fluffy head. Mild hops right away / light rhubarb pie in mid / finishes thick and hoppy, but the flavors clear out quickly. Medium body. Nice, quite bitter. The name doesn’t do it justice.
