On tap at the Common Table. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are very pleasant. I get a nice touch of biscuit and light toffee, as well as some lemons and a bit of orange. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Nice work. Slightly high gravity pilsner with a bit more viscosity than usually. Great brine and hop aroma with just a hint of pineapple in the finish. Right in between common and imperial pilsner.

Hair6a11 (1348) - Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle; Pour is slightly murky golden with a two finger, fine bubbled creamy head in this glass; there is some light spotting present here, with average retention present. The nose is floral, spicy, caramel, and grain. The flavor profile is initial modest bitter, cream, floral, a modest spicing, more bready malts. The mouthfeel is somewhat thick, and it is sweet, like candied sugar. Its a decent drinker , different of course -

Draft. Poured clear golden color with medium frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Sevenlee (1294) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is yeasty, fruits with some herbal notes and I guess is what the Kaneko Golden barley. Taste is light sweet leading to a light bitterness in the finish. Interesting

DrSilverworm (6283) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2013
On tap. Clear golden color. Thin white head that retains very well. Leaves little lace. Medium body. Nice smooth lighter carbonation. Little more of a chewy body compared to your typical pils. Finish is more on the dry side. Bready pilsner malts. Nice hop profile - more tropical fruit than grassy. Light bitterness, more sweet. Good imperial pils.
