crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Pours a bright, clear gold with some very attractive carbonation in the body and a decent snow white head. Some very nice white lacing as the glass gets lower. The aroma is of mostly straw with a bit of citrus, light bitter hops and mild malt sweetness. The flavor is classic pilsener - straw and grass with a clean, mild, and refreshing hop bite. There is also a hint of strange, earthy citrus in the flavor. The mouthfeel is light and foamy with a bit slight tingle of carbonation, very nicely balanced with the flavor. Overall a very solid brew (for a guy who enjoys a good pilsener), possibly my favorite example of the style.

efrumtheidiot (190) - Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2008
pours a crystal clear golden amber with a white head. aroma is straw, light citrus, grain, lemongrass, and a little dusty. taste is cornmeal, some malt, and light grain. light body with a frothy mouthfeel. very light & easy to drink. never really been much of a fan of pilseners, but if you are you might enjoy this. i imagine it’s ten times better fresh from the tap.

bhensonb (13850) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle. Grain and grass aromas. Brassy color with a white head that went down leaving spotty lace. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Good dose of grassy hop, and the grain is not distressing. The finish is definitely bitter. Decent drink.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Kind of boring... Pours a very clear yellow/golden color with very few rising bubbles and a huge white head. Aroma is dry and earthy/herbal. Flavor is dry, with some citrus and a lot of herbal flavor. 12 oz. bottle.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear golden, thin white head with lacing. Grassy, herbal hop aroma, light grain and lemon peel. Bready flavor, slightly sweet, strong oily bitterness throughout. Good full palate.

kidmartinek (4585) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Weak malty aroma. Clear yellow in the glass. Pours with a lot of foam/fuss. Taste is mild, earthy, and bland. Only a tad skunky. Nothing special here.
