Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla. Clear golden color with thin white head. Light noble hop aroma and flavor nicely balanced with a slgithly sweet cereal grain flavor. Crisp and clean, light body. Not a bad beer.

Pours a typical golden but caries an amazing aroma of malt and hops, the taste was very sweet and malty followed by a refreshing hop bitterness. While definitely not the best beer in the world it definitely is refreshing and beats the hell out of budweiser

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.

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.

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.

I enjoyed this beer from the beer pub on tap. It had a good taste, not amazing, but definitely consumable. The beer was real yellow, and kind of foggy, not bad though.

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.

(Bottle) Bohemian Pilsener? Heck no. Drinkable? Heck yes. This beer is grossly miscategorized: very little bitterness, hops, and the character of the malt is not grassy and clear like in the Pilseners. This tastes more like any number of other styles...itís light, but not that crisp and refreshing. Too bland for me.

This was a nice pilsner beer with good hopping and a nice flavor. Good initial offering for me from Karl.
