Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2008
Draught sample from New Orleans location. Clean nose, not much aroma other than light hop note. Golden clear with foamy/creamy lacing head. Medium-light body, smooth, with medium-heavy fizz. Starts with spicy malt roundness with good acidic gaseousness. Beany. Light peppery-sweet finish with dry bitter after. Good but not as grassy and soft as some others I’ve tried.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 24, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2009 On tap at GB KC. The body was dark gold with a white head. The aroma was Saaz hops with some spice. A little bit of nice fresh bread. The taste was spciy with some bread crust. Nice clean finish. Overall, I would say that this was bright and clean. Nicely made, but still fairly boring.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Draft at Virginia Beach. Pours clear yellow with full foamy white head. Aroma of malt and light floral hops. Taste sweet, malt and hops with bitter finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Draft at the brewpub (Phoenix location). Poured a clear golden color. Head was white and two fingers high. A bit of lace was left behind at the end. The aroma and flavor were of cereal grain and light grassy hops. The hop flavor was very subdued, unfortunately, without much of that distinct Saaz flavor I was hoping for. Overall this was a pretty unobtrusive beer with easy drinkability, but not much personality.

Drjohnrock (428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Draft sampler at Columbus brewpub. Clear amber color, thin body, decent hoppy flavor--certainly better than the Golden Export that I also sampled.

ghawener (1454) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - DEC 4, 2007
[Miami, FL] Draft: A bit too sweet and soft for a Czech Lager, lacks that bitterness and hoppy punch. Honey and brown sugar aroma. Drinkable.

Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2007
VA Beach location. Touch more of yellow in the body than their Export. Pils malts, touch of honey flavor to the malt, faint bitterness on the finish, not very defined. I prefer hoppier than this in my pils.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Fresh from the tap, pours an unclouded gold, bright white creamy head piles high on the body, lacing provides a tight skirt to cove the glass. Nose sweet with malt, citrus like in its crispness, start has a pleasing malt presence, the hops delectable with their spicy bitterness at the back, top is moderate in feel to the palate. Finish has the customary acidity, the hops understated but pleasingly spicy, quite dry aftertaste, a nice drinking beer, good session beer.

TheShat (131) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Draft has a nice foamy head and gold color. There is a pleasant toasty malt flavor. The finish is a bit driy with a hint of bitterness. Nothing special.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 11, 2007
A golden color with little head. The aroma is rather malty with a hint of grass. Some lemons show in the flavor. The finish is mildly bitter. The malt profile isnt bad on this one. Not world class but it works for a session lager.
