auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 22, 2010
On tap at the Beachwood BBQ - Seal Beach, CA. Soapy pilsner malt aroma, thick with sugars and yeast. Pours a coppery dark golden, clearish with minimal whitish head. Flavors of not-crisp pilsner malt sugars, lots of malt creaminess and some distant hops. Ragingly and punishingly sweet. Just too much. I want bright fresh crispness out of this, with nice bright hoppiness, but it just isn’t there. Soapy in the finish.

I had this on tap at Pizza Port San Clemente I thought that this was a very nicely done beer. Good maltiness balanced with grassy hops.

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2010
22oz bottle from BevMo. Pours a crystal clear deep gold with a nice frothy 2 finger thick white head, some sheeted lacing was left on the glass. Light flesh fruits in the nose followed by some lightly roasted malts with a kind of lemon grass like finish. Damn tasty and very drinkable.

From a bottle poured a light amber color with a small amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 5, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #21. Dark gold and clear as can be with a nice moderate lacing white head. Light toast and a bit of caramel, very clean aroma, nice. Light grass and a soft sweetness, a bit more caramel, pretty good. (1392)

MIBRomeo (2493) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Nearly golden slightly orange color w/ a small white head and some light soapy lacing. Avg Pal. The flavor is lightly doughy w/ a nice slightly bitter clean citrus & floral hop finish. Some nice sweetness both caramels and fruits the bread like tone is subtle but nice. The aroma is similar definite dry hoppy hints of some light floral pieces, with a light touch of sweet breads. Very easy to drink, and easily the best "pilsner" I’ve tasted.

Bottle thanks deadgirl. Golden orange pour with some tan head. Grassy and light noble bittering hops, toasted malt flavor and caramel flavors and aroma.

mjg74 (2459) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Bomber from BevMo. Clear dark golden in color. Somewhat grassy nose with a little bit of sweetness. Sweat and grassy flavors. Decent hoppiness. Pretty interesting. Pretty much tastes like I would think an impy pilsner would taste. Everything is pretty much taken and ramped up.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2011
[Bottle] Clear copper hue, decent head formation. Sugarry caramel aroma, light cooked corn. Sweet caramel, hard boiled sugar candy intro before a fair bitter hoppiness in the finish (that IPA bitterness rather than pilsener). Even with the bitterness there’s still a big, almost sherry like sweetness towards the end. Looks like many have rated this well but I found it to be a strange mixture.

well.... sorry distracted by crazy stories.... Poured with a nice head that pretty much lasts the whole bottle (bomber) and lots of lace. Color is a clear golden amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, dry leather, a little pine. Flavor is like aroma with great carbonation. Finish is like flavor and has medium length.
