On tap at the Columbus location.Pours a amber color with a thin lacing head.The nose was spicy and hoppy.Flavor had a nice bitter hop bite as it finished bitter where it stuck on the back of my throat.

nbutler11 (1267) - Rota, SPAIN - AUG 14, 2008
Poured golden with a trim white head from the tap in Tempe. Overloaded with the bitterness of hops along with notes of pepper. Nothing I would recommend, as I couldn’t even finish my sample.

Tasted clove on the first sip , loved the label story of pilsner, but after that it slipped a bit, would give anonymously to an acquaintance

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Pours clear golden with lots of white head. Noble hops are the show here. I enjoy them. Lots of hop flavor and bitterness. Medium body and dry. High carbonation. Not great, but drinkable.

Derek881 (1123) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 27, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 I sampled some of this beer on tap at the brewpub in DC, and then had it again in the BWI airport in a tall pint glass. It had a grainy hops aroma with touches of earthy and grassy hops, along with floral and citrus hops notes and a bit of caramel malt. The beer had a clear and rich golden straw color with a moderate, foamy white head with very good retention, and average cling and lacing. The flavor was mostly, but not heavily, a crisp bitter grainyness with touches of floral character, and some light sour citrus and subtle notes of sweet malt. The beer was initially wet with a light mouthfeel, but became a bit dry, and although slightly watery in texture, it had a high and lively level of carbonation.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 3, 2008
Pours a very yellow golden color. Head is a thin white. Aroma is german hops and carbonated water with wheat. Taste is same, a very dry beer but too watery for me. Aftertaste is cotton balls and bandaids. Probably my least favorite beer here (though none are above average).

Sammy (9684) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2008
Enjoyed on tap at the Washington, DC location. Saaz hop bitterness, not quite, near metallic. Medium yellow, a caesar crown of white and lace. Medium mouthfeel. Off bitterness that makes it not all that drinkable.

Oakes (13594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 First time I had this at the now-defunct Miami location, it was positively awful. I re-rated it in Honolulu. Slight haze, light gold, highly effervescent. Has a moderate hop nose and bitterness, with well-balanced pale malt base. Touch of yeast in the finish. Good. Just shows how far behind GB’s standards that Miami branch really was.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Draught, Miami location. Clear amber. Small white head. Slight bit of lace scattered about unevenly. Diacetyl and sourness. Vanilla and some odd smoke, just as with the hefe had side-by-side. Flaws or unclean taps suspected...Prickly mouthfeel. Slight hop in the finish. Autolyzed yeast dominates. Tough to get through.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2008
A tap at N Scottsdale location. Pours a medium gold with 2 finger snow white head. Decent lacing. Nose is grass, grain and malt. Palate is more malt with some hop in the finish. Not great, but drinkable.
