3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the Sorrento Valley location. The beer pours clear gold with a thin white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grainy malt and mildly spiced hops. Light-bodied with pale malt and light hops and spice flavors. The finish is bready malt with a light hops aftertaste. Average overall.

It just doesnt hit the right notes. So many pilseners out there. I would say avoid this one.

Tap at La Jolla location. Pale golden colour, thin white head. Aroma is quite bready and malty. Crackery and clean smelling. Flavour is quite light and soft. Lean but with a light floral hoppiness. Soft bready finish. Pretty decent... more helles than pilsner though.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

"Not great not bad...kind of a light but floral blonde ale. Good fresh but I wouldn’t trust in bottles. Fairly traditional...flowers and a spice kick, light and crisp in body and flavor. M"

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Saaz like hoppy aroma with some sweetness and light diacetyl. The flavor has husky straw like malts, light saaz hops, and a hint of diacetyl. Not bad.
