A half decent pil. Pours a nice golden colour. Malt presence, and a clean, slightly hoppy finish. Refreshing on the patio.

Pours mostly clear light gold with a bubbly white head. Bready aroma with some metal and grass. No Noble hops to speak of. Sweet with a small hop bitterness with a dry finish. Nice little beer.

Enjoyed a couple of these beers while visiting my friend in San Diego. It had a good barley malt aroma with some herbal and grainy hops. The beer was a slightly dark golden color with a smaller-sized, foamy, off-white head with modest retention. It had a slightly sweet, but predominantly bitter-grainy taste. The beer was slightly thinner, but crisp and lively with a dry finish.

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.

On tap @ Karl Strauss Brewery. Bubbly aroma of very light hops. Pure, see-through golden color. Weak flavor of biscuity malt. Only one flavor to it. Overall, not top quality at all. Although, easy to drink. C- rating.

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.

Very impressed with this pilsener. Has to be compared to other pilseners and not heavier beers, but in it’s own class - very good. Medium body and bright taste.
