aroma is clearer grainery, leans towards sweetness. well polished gold, nice nucleation, wispy head. flavor is hints of spiciness amongst candy sweetness. off putting dirty bitterness later. some kind of balance struck in the end albeit by questionable means.

Rated on 7-11-2010 at Granite City Food & Brewery in Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer pours a small smooth head with a long retention. The hue of the body is yellow gold, no visible carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The aroma is malt and lightly fruity. The taste is sweet, lightly bitter, malt, fruity, and light citrus. The palate is smooth and this beer is light bodied. Overall, I did not care for the flavor of this beer as it is rather bland tasting.

This draft brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent straw yellow colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The acidic mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of acidic and mild hops. A horrible one that I would rather not drink again. The acidity of this brew ruined it for me. After a few sips, it gave me gas.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Tap from KC,Mo location. Poured a hazy yellow almost orange color with a smaller white head that was gone rather quick. Aroma was grass, citrus, lemon and some mild hops. Flavor was grass, earthy tones and spruce. Kind of a dry finish. Weird but not in a good way. Something missing with this beer. Kind of watery and thin. Not all that great.

nuplastikk (4134) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Mug club pour. Looks nice in the 25oz glass. Filtered orange-yellow. Steady, creamy white head. Pretty respectable Pils, lots of Boho characteristics. Pepper noble hops, some grainy brewhouse malt. Old school beer-beer, where there is a fine line between World Class and macro swill. Standard, in a good way. Not bad by any means.

jandd1983 (2087) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2011
It poured a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma was moderately hoppy. The flavor was bittersweet with a bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

BVery (5618) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Tap at St. Louis Park brewpub. Crystal clear light yellow pour with a small wispy white head. Very mild aroma of Saaz hops, grain, and a touch of sweetness. Lighter palate. Taste is mildly bready malts and a tinge of a metallic finish.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Draught at Cedar Rapids. Pours crystalline yellow with tight white head. The aroma is light cookiedough and a subtle floral note. The flavor is grainy with assertive hop bitterness. Mellow doughiness and dry herbal notes in the finish. Crisp, decent.

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2011
A nice pils from this brewpub, pours a medium gold with white head. Flavors are pretty traditionally pils, with an emphasis on a moderate and enjoyable hoppiness. A good beer that I’d have again.
