COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The newly designed bottle labels describe LTD Bottling 03, as crisp, new pilsner-style lager that is pale golden in color, features a spicy floral hop aroma, a malty medium body, and a smooth thirst-quenching finish. LTD 03 registers "Pale" on the "Malt-O-Meter" that is featured on the six packs. Beer aficionados, or the aspiring ones, will enjoy the bottom of the six-pack that features an easy-to-read chart of "Today’s Recipe," including Sterling hops, 2 row pale malt, plato (14 degrees), I.B.U. (35), alcohol by volume (5.6) and any special ingredients.

12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is grain and herbal hops. Flavor is also grainy malt with a nice touch of spicy herbal hops. Medium body. A nice beer.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 8, 2009
12oz bottle. Spicy hop and minerally Full Sail aroma. The flavor is a little sweeter than you would expect, with spicy hops and that same Full Sail earthy mineral flavor. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. I wanted to like this more, but it just ended up tasting like the rest of their beers.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Batch 03 on label. Pours clear gold with a clean white head. Aroma is sugary, with white bread and grass. Palate displays beautifully fine carbonation over a crisp, smooth body. Quite pleasant. Flavor starts with pale malt, sugar, and soft peach, finishing with grassy bitterness. Simple, yet flavorful. This is a nice quencher with enough body to keep it interesting. “Robust” pilsner?

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Medium golden on the pour. Slight sweet hoppy aroma with some good maltiness. Nice hoppiness for a pilsener. Full flavored and well balanced. Solid brew.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 5, 2009
2009 Bottle - Pours lt orange with a large white head...aroma is lightly hoppy and fresh grains...flavour is nicely bitter up front with a subtle maltiness, highly carbonated...not too much other than that, better than the other two LTD’s...not much of a pilsner, but still tasty...

Bottle. Poured medium gold with thick white head. Moderate lacing. Hoppy and grassy aroma. Medium body with sweet malty bones and some hoppy skin. Medium hop finish. Thirst quenching and welcome on a hot day.

Bottle from a Trader Joe’s. Pours a rather golden orange with a few white bubbles for head. Aromas of grass and caramel. Medium plus body with mild carbonation. Flavor is malty/bready with some astringent floral/grassy hop. It really drinks quite well. Finish has substance and bitter.

Reid (1803) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Clear,lovelly golden in colour. Large pure white head. Lashings of lace. Great spicy/grassy hop aromas waft up.Some malts show. Very malt centered beginning to the taste, then washed away by very livelly refreshing hops. Gives a kind of balance to the thing. Thicker than usual mouthfeel for the style. Great summer drinker. I am not sure this could be called a "Classic German Pils"..but it is certainlly a great PNW one!
