stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours pale golden with a decent size white head. Aroma of sweet malts, grain, citrus, and grassy hops. The flavor is bitter, citrus, grain, and sweet malts. Good brew.

Braudog (5741) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2007
500ml; Poured very, very light yellow, initially effervescent, but suddenlystill, with just a thin fizz of a head. Very light aroma; what there is is starchy, lightlycorny. Light and crisp, with just a shadow of a corn-starchy finish. I’m surprised this scores as highly as it does ... while unoffensive and well balanced, I frankly find it a bit flat and uninspired.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Very pale yellow with lively carbonation and a tall sudsy head, this lager has an aroma of warm bread, wet grasses, lemon, and flowers. The flavor is bready and grainy with grassy hops and a touch of lemon tartnes. If this had a crisper or dryer finish or was heavier handed with the hops, I’d like it a bunch more, but it still makes for a fine sessionable beer.

Kinz (3286) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Medium to light gold, quite fizzy, slight head. Aroma of bread and wet hay. Flavor was decent, towards the bready side, with some grassy and floral hops underlying things. Not as crisp as I prefer, but not a bad brew either.

bonbright7 (181) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2007
I poured the golden straw beer into my 50 cl glass and admired the slight head that was building with a ton of bubbles beneath it. The aroma was faint, but the first taste revealed a hoppy light bodied style with an element of tartness. This was one of the better Pils I had tasted recently as I was researching beers for an Oktoberfest dinner I am creating this Fall by tasting them all.

Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread, straw and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, straw, some graininess and a hint of citrus with a crisp bitter finish.

(50cl bottle) Medium white head atop clear pale straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, faint grassy. Taste is medium sweet, cereal/bread, hay/grass, faint apple. Bitterness becomes slightly more pronounced as it warms. Slight dryness in the finish. Light-medium body, some crispness, light chalk, fairly drinkable.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Pale straw, basically yellow, quite clear, moderate carbonation, fairly large white foamy head, nice lacing.   Soft grassy malts, a little bit of hay/straw.   Moreso straw on the tongue, mild sweetness, comes out more as the beer warms up.   Slightly dry, very clean.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, yet somehow a bit big for a Pils.   I still enjoyed it regardless, even if it did feel a bit heavier.
