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.

mjg74 (2459) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 Bottled. Pours a pale golden color. Aroma is grainy and acidic. A little malty in flavor. . Slightly bitter finish. Not one of Karl’s best efforts. Drinkable. Tap: Pretty decent, better than bottled.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 26, 2006
On tap at the Old Columbia location. Golden yellow with a medium white head. Has a fairly discernable level of hops (18 IBU), but not a burner. Malt content makes this a tasty light lager. Not so pilsner-like to me, but I like it. Way way better than the Endless summer crap they make. This is the refreshing summer beer that you want.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 26, 2007
On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Slightly cloudy and pale yellow, nice head and lacing. Sweet toast aroma. Flavor is slightly roasty with wheat bread toast notes. Finish has signature pilsener corn flavor. One of the better microbrew pilseners I have had, though not outstanding.

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.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008
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.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2008
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.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2008
On tap at the Karl Strauss Beer Cart located in Disneyland. Poured a medeium golden/yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some grass, grainy, and a little earthy. Tastes of toasted grains, the same light earthiness, and light caramel. Lively body.
