on tap, poured into a pilsner glass a: translucent light straw yellow color, bubbling 1/4" head with decent retention. light lacing rings the glass s: clean smell, light malt and floral hops t: light malt flavor cut by floral/noble hop bitterness. Well balanced beer. Not as bitter as i would have guessed by the advertised 40 IBUs. m&d: light bodied, crisp and clean. Excellent pilsner. Very drinkable, almost the most sessionable GLBC Beer.

JaBier (4834) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2009
On tap at the Great Lakes dinner at the Bethel Rd Winking Lizard on 6/11/09. Pours clear gold with no head. Very clean aroma with some creamy malt and a touch of hops. Creamy malt flavor up front with a crisp and slightly bitter hop finish. Tastes pretty nice sitting out on the patio on a warm June evening.

A nice pils for me. No skunk presence, not much off bad bitterness. Clean and crisp and light.

Draft at GL. Pours a yellow body with a white head. Sweet matly and grainy with light pils hops. Corny with a floral honey note. Simple and plain.

Tap. Golden body, small white head, grainy nose with floral notes. Moderate bitterness, refreshing, not a great example of the style.

This is a very decent pils. Crisp and clean, it hits the senses harder than it feels like it should.

crystal clear yellow, fine off white head, layers of drippy lace, grainy malt aroma with a hint of corn, sweet malt flavor, lots of grain character, light bitterness for balance but stays well in the background, light floral hops,

This was served a little warmer than i would have liked. Especially for a pilsner. flower and spice along with lager aroma. flavor is mild bitterness and a fair amount of malt. tastes almost exactly like a watered down dortmunder gold. not the best pilsner i’ve have but pretty good.

Draft at Brewery - A great Pilsner. Very refreshing on a hot day. Pale yellow color with a frothy white head. As the description says, it was a very crisp pils with the right combination of malt and hops. Greta carbonation.

On tap at the down town brewery. I had this after a farily long walk on hot day... That will enhance the taste of all pilseners. Served in tall pilsner glass, the color was of light bright yellow. The carbonation caused a few bubbbles to start at the bottom and sour to the top of the glass, not too many though. There was no head on the beer when I received it. The flavor was a great blend of hops and malt. The hops were subtle with a grassy character, and the malts were light. The beer over all was light, crips and clean....But not watery. A very good pilsner.
