UPDATED: NOV 1, 2011 draft. shimmering gold. lightly pungent hop nose; chalky, minerallic and a bit powdery with saltine cracker and dried biscuit malt aromatics (semi-sweet corn); clean nose presents the perle hops well (lightly spicy, peppery). light bodied, crisp and snappy up front with strong noble hop pungency, clean profile, medium-high acid washing the palate and tongue. alright full sail, you nailed this one. well done.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Deschutes Fresh Hop Fest, Falling Rock, Denver. Hazy light gold with a generous foamy head. Aroma of dry earthy pilsner malts with a subtle grassy hop tone. Clean and light body with a decently big flavor. Malty biscuit and pilsener base with grassy mild hop bitterness. Decent for what it is.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Full Sail Portland: Pours a lightly hazy gold color with a nice light head and lacing. The nose is crisp and hoppy; plenty of pilsner malt and a grassy fresh hop note. The flavor is clean, light, balanced, hop forward bitterness and very light malts. Clean finish and a nice snappy tail. Good pilsner.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Hood River brewpub. I’m not a Pilsner fan--chiefly due to the skunky Saaz hope quality and overall lightness. This one has a soft, fresh hop aroma. flowery. Light yellow but still a good balance of hop flavor with honey-ish, slightly lemony malt. Tingling to the tongue
