On tap, Chili Cookoff. Not too much to say about this one, itís a rather simple style that is well executed but . . . simple. Gold-amber in color with a grainy, slightly grassy nose. Taste is pale malt, light herbal hops, a bit indescript. Not offensive, but certainly boring.

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.

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.

pepsican (1419) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle thanks to riverside ak. Pours a straw yellow with a nice white head. Aroma of bread and sweet malts. Flavor is similar with a nice bit of hops, some corn and citrus. Very simple and easy to drink. Not bad at all.

TChrome (1399) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2006
On draft at Karl Strauss: Beer pours attractive gold color with a well retained egg white head. Aroma exhibits excellent use of Saaz hops, very Czech, German pils aroma. Flavor is grainy and hoppy. A good pils.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Fizzy slightly darker hue of yellow beer with fizzy white head to lace. Hints of asparagus in the nose. Will my pee smell like this later? I guess itís also yeast and sugar. Taste is light lager, with leftovers. Cardboard and grass. Light lemon and grape sweetness. Bit of twang. Iíve had worse? Itís funny how 5/10 on nose is F. 3/5 on app is D-. Taste 5/10 F. Palate 3/5 D-. But overall itís still a beer I can see enjoying on a hot day with a burger and chips at the beach, so I I give it a 13/20 which is a D+. I canít help it that I like beer.

Foxbush (1212) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 Upon visiting the Karl Strauss resturant and brewery in Carlsbad we enjoyed some of their beers. This was an excellent golden pilsner with some hopiness and a crisp finish. You could drink this beer all day. It was not complex but a very drinkable brew. I had another in San Diego at the Redfields bar at the Manchester Hyatt Hotel. It is avery good all around Pils.

Poured clear golden yellow with a pillowy head that left decent lacing. Not as hoppy as I expected on the nose; mostly malty breads and biscuits. Taste mirrored the smell, but included a touch of floral hops. Soft mouthfeel, well carbonated, would make a good session beer. One of the best labels Iíve ever seen.
