3fourths (8017) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Strong wet dog odor, vegetables as well... grassy with some sweet, sticky, almost hot alcohol. Malt-liquoresque... too hot, too sticky, and too grainy. No thanks.

Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2002
2002 bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark yellow. Aroma is moderately hoppy (grapefruit), lightly malty (toasted light bread), moderately yeasty (sweat, dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic, lightly sweet. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, lightly astringent. Not impressed...sweaty yeast (and grapefruity hops) ruins the aroma and flavor alike.

I agree with ecrvich, and I quote ’sweaty yeast (and grapefruity hops) ruins the aroma and flavor alike.’ Considering that I love a good pilsener, and also a strong beer, I had high hopes for this. But it tastes amateur-ish, although this is a well established brewery. I paid good money for this, and feel ripped off. It is cloying, and over-hopped, and basically, it sucks. Another quote from an earlier review: ’about time someone made a lager that took the hop character to IPA levels.’ WHY???? It tastes like an IPA, and a one-dimensional West Coast one at that. Don’t bother. PS - I had to add the fact that almost all the people who rated this highly are from Oregon...

TAR (2490) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2002
2002: Unattractive bubbled foam with neither stickiness nor retention. Smells of ’Astro Pop’, reminiscent of candied malt, only a touch of hop profile, alcohol, and tropical fruit. But nothing indicative of a fine pilsner, or even a pilsner, at that. Sharp alcohol and medicine flavors that are highly unappealing; In fact, it is very similar to cough syrup. It even somehow manages to display what a horribly made beer this is by finishing both astringently and cloying. Doesn’t look, taste, or smell like a pilsner. Bad bottle? Note: A brewery really makes me angry when it leaves the bottle date blank.

Bottle was marked 2002. Old age might have had something to do with this one. Light amber color with long lasting white head. Unimpressive hoppy nose. The rest was downhill from there.
