2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow pour with very small head. Aroma is very subdued, with little more than hops. Flavor is mild, herby and grassy, with its fair share of malt.
Very boring to drink but with a good pils finish--not to sharp, but definitely not heavy. Very much reminded me of some of the "better" macros. Nothing special.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale weak yellow pour with minimal head, this is simply a boring, watered-down pils with a fancy label from an otherwise good brewer.

I found this to be an extreamly sessionable pilsner. It wasn’t too heavy but it wasnt watered down and left the correct aftertaste in your mouth to make you say wow that was a good traditional pilsner. Not as refined as some but it is a micro-brewed pilsner not from the rheinheitsgebot.

July 2007 - Clear golden color, pillowy head and nice lacing. Strong aroma of flowers and grass. Very nice balance of sweet pilsner malt, grassy and floral hops. Light and refreshing without being watery and bland...full flavor. Good effort from the Left Hand!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz Bottle, A slighlty cloudy pale yellow color with a 1 inch head. It has a slight hint of hops in the aroma, the aroma is so slight that it is hard to pin it down. It is a smooth tasting pilsner but it has a metallic finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottled 8/13/2007... crystal clear straw color with a wispy white head that sticks around for a bit. aroma is metallic graininess, lager yeast and some grassy hops. flavor is quite boring and mostly like the aroma. light grain bitterness on the finish. average body. crisp and drinkable but pretty much lacking any character...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A very light beer, basically like a macro. Boring and not much flavor to it. Expect a coor light when you drink this.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 Thanks to ucusty for this one.
Poured from a 12oz. bottle, bottled on date: 07-25-07
Paired with fish.
Aroma: Floral & citrusy
Appearance: Pale gold, plenty of small bubbles rising with a nice thick head
Flavor: Mild hops flavour with some fruitlike character (citrus) and a nice, light bitterness
Palate: Gentle and smooth, the carbonation gives it a nice feel
Overall: Very drinkable, smooth beer that went down easy. Not too bitter with a nice hop balance. I would have liked a couple more of these, would definitely try again.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled on 1/30/08, sampled on 2/14/08.
Pale yellow straw color with a white 1-finger head that quickly fades to small patches and clumps. Ultra-fine bubbles lace well. Very grainy Pils malt aroma with a definite noble hop accent. Some carbonic whiffs. Taste mirrors the aroma. Lots of grainy Pils malt taste witha good spicy Saaz bite on the dry bittering finish. Some stingy carbonation, but not completely out of line for the style. Great American Pilsener in a more traditional style that say, Prima Pils. Get a fresh sample to rate people! Underrated.
