This is a slightly sparkling light golden lager with a small, soft white head that leaves really good lacing. The aroma is a very light breeze of fruity hops. Perhaps a note of tangerine. The medium light body is more than I expected. It is soft and forgiving on the tounge but it retains the zazzle from the carbonation. There is a little citrus and a little noble hop action going on in here. The taste quickly fades and ends up a tad watery. This is a beer your dad would drink.

Not bad for a pilsner - but then again, not my style - too light, too boring. blah. no need to say more - you can imagine how it tastes

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2007
Bready notes on the nose with some noticable Saaz hops. Appearance is a nice golden. Flavor is initial breadiness, slightly sweet, followed by extremely crisp hops. It is easy drinking, as it is a pilsner. It finishes crisp and somwhat dry.

Nothing! I feel nothing. This beer lacks aroma and it lacks tastes with only a faint grassy/ haylike scent and flavor. Its dry and light and could make a decent summer brew.

Tmoney99 (10409) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Draft sampler at brewpub. Poured a clear golden color with a moderate white fizzy head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Light hoppy citrus aroma. Light to medium body. Average hoppy citrus flavor with a smooth dry sweet finish of short duration. Drinkable brew.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006
On tap at Columbia Street brewery. Yellow with weak white head. Corn flakes aroma. Flavor same as aroma. Corn flakes with little else. Really needs some fresh hops for balance. Not much of a beer.

bigbish (510) - California, USA - JUL 16, 2006
A golden colore, slight head that disipates fairly quickly. A malty flavor, low hop profile. Very boring.
