Quite a delicious lightly citrusy ipa with a good nose on it and a clean body. Easy to drink in quantity.

This beer looks very light, as in the yellow color. The white head is strong though. The aroma is dominated by spicy grain. The texture is quite creamy for such a light looking beer. The flavor is mostly bitter followed by spicy maltiness but all this is overshadowed by the creamy texture, which is just wrong for a pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Clear, golden, no head and no lace. Very aromatic. Citrus, tropical, fresh and not piney. Pale malt. Very clean and pretty. Dry, no sourness but very bitter. Medium dense and long. Great fresh pale malt, fruit and citrus. Bitterness is not balanced.
Almost an imperial pils. Good aroma and flavor just disjointed.

Clear gold color. Aroma of corn & lager yeast. Sips medium bodied with nice malt backbone. Very dry and hoppy bitter flavors which compliment. Total west coast pilsner version. Excellent brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear gold with bubble streamers rising to the top. This one has that classic grapefruit spicy cascade aroma that makes you think you are drinking a pale ale (sierra?) then the flavor is clean and citrusy. Pretty nice, pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep golden almost amber color. Notes of oranges, pine, grass, and toast. Feels like an APA that went light on the malt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 1/27/14
Aroma: The nose is grassy hops, some hay notes, grains, and some citrus hints
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a small, lasting white head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is clean and grassy, light bitter, light sweet, finishes a little more bitter
Palate: The body is light-medium, is has a clean feel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
This is not a bad pilsener at all. It’s fairly dry for the style, with a bit more of a hop presence than others in the category. Interesting stuff. I’m glad to have tried it. 26 years is quite impressive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, lemon/grapefruit).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
A very straightforward, Americanized example, decent but doesn’t make much of an impression.
