Bottle. Pale yellow color with straw head. Flavor is pale malts, straw, light grains, a bit of sugary sweetness. Just a whiff of hops at the back end to finish it off. Pretty nondescript, not much different than most pale lagers.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Pours clear straw yellow with a medium sized, fizzy white head that leaves specks of lace. Smells grainy and cereal malty, sweet. Tastes the same. Cereal malty, lightly sweet, hint of honey. Grainy, maybe a touch of green hops. Light/medium body, good carbonation.

BMan1113VR (7789) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2010
On tap at the Universal location. Pours with a clear golden body and a white head. Aroma of crackers, biscuit, salty, grainy and a light acidic note. Flavor is salty, bready, raw barley, with zero sweetness. Dry with lively carbonation.

This was a nice pilsner beer with good hopping and a nice flavor. Good initial offering for me from Karl.

This is a $8 rating, because the only reason I tried this is because it was at a concert. Clear gold, white head. Grainy malt, light sweet and lightly hoppy. Middle of the road beer, nothing special.

daknole (8558) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Tap at La Jolla. Copperish pour. White head. Some earthy hops lead off followed by typical honey/caramel malt aromas. Flavor hits with more hops than malt, but not by a lot. Not all bad.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2010
Clear golden with a medium white head. Malty aroma with hints of saaz hops, caramel and diacetyl. Fairly hoppy flavour with plenty of saaz, diacetyl, straw and butter. Finished dry and bitter. Not a bad take on the style.

Not a great beer at all, not terrible, I wouldnt buy it again. I was expecting substantially more. grainy, slightly soapy, beers like this are why people think KS cant brew world class beers.

SD trip, Karl Strauss LaJolla, sampler, had these while having a larger DIPA, flavors and ratings may be rough: I usually hate pils and find it to be a waste of time, however this one had mild bready/yeast flavor and wasn’t all bad. Still a pils tho...

Love those blonds! Light golden wheat, scent of fresh baked bread, goes down easy! Great packaging, presents well. I’d take it to any BBQ.
