3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed a pint of this beer on tap in San Diego. The beer had a clear solid gold color with a good-sized foamy white head with good retention, lacing, and cling. Its aroma was a light mix of sour grainy and earthy notes with subtle bits of yeast, floral, and straw components. The taste was crisp and had a lightly sweet fruit effect with a touch of lemon and a very light grainy bitterness. The body of the beer was light and zesty on the palate with low carbonation, and was a touch watery with a thin and light mouthfeel.

A clear yellow colored beer, with a white head. The aroma fruits like citrus with some bitterhop. The taste of fresh fruits, malt and bitter hop. The aftertaste is sweet with a hop bitter. It’s a refreshing beer, with hot wheather.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a cleary fizzy yellow with a white head. Aroma was of ilsner malt, grassy hops, and not much else. Flavor was a bit bland and a little buttery and skunky, missing that nice crispness and cracker notes that a good pilsner should have.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Papago a few months back pouring up crystal clear deep gold with a decent enough white head of foam. The aroma has sweet malts, a modest level of grainy malts and floral hops. The taste delivers straight up lagery flavors with sweet Pilsener malts, lagery yeastiness and then heading into various levels of floral hops that go from fairly bitter to flavor and then back to bitter again. The bitter floral hops are what mostly linger into the after taste. Decent enough Pils but not my favorite as this one seems a little too sweet and too floral for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Blind Lady Ale House; July 2012
The beer has a nice, bright gold color to it and it is topped by a frothy, pale head. Lemony hop, some sweet grain / corn aromatics that mix with an interesting herbal component. The DMS (?) is a bit too much in the nose, and it seems to get in the way of the rest of the aromatics.
Nicely bitter, with a soft, grainy and cracker like malt character. The hop character is quite herbal, a bit floral, and even a bit spicy. The body has some texture to it, enough to make this interesting, it certainly doesn’t come off as being watery at all. The pale malt character is quite nice; there are herbal honey like notes to it, as well as a nice, sweet, chewy pale maltiness.
A fairly nice example of a pils; the only detraction is the touch of corn-character (perhaps a touch of residual DMS), but this really doesn’t detract too much and the hop character, and especially the rest of the pale malt character helps this to recover quite a bit. The texture is also just about perfect, light with just enough malt fullness to keep it balanced.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Grainy malts, some weird diacetyl-like sweetness, and some light floral-ish old hoppy notes. Bad batch? This was pretty bad.
