Pour is a bright gold with a white head. Aroma is slightly malty and hoppy the way a good pils should be. Flavor is a nice mix of malts and hops. Porb one of the best pils I have had except for the original.

Draught at Left Hand in Longmont. Pours a crisp gold with a tall frothy white head. Fruit hop and sour leather, sweat and grainy malt aromas. Sour grain and corn malt flavor with a fruit hop finish. Light bodied and crisp.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Pours hazy pale golden-straw with a small fizzy white head that doesn’t last long, not much lacing, light grassy and flowery aromas. Bready, grainy and buttery flavors . Light bodied with a soft lightly carbonated mouthfeel, something just not right about this pils, this is a fresh sample brewed on 06/15/05.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 24, 2005
bottle-pours golden yellow with a small white head. herbal notes mainly from the aroma with some notes of grains, and some german spicy yeast funk. flavors are really grainy and kinda offensive. no real hop bite and pretty bland. a pretty basic pils

above average pilsner. Nice armoa with little sign of the usual macro swill. Definate hop flavors. very nice

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2005
Fresh, spicy, grassy hop nose has some suggestions of white pepper and grainy, cereal-like malts. Clear, pale yellow-gold with low white head that recedes to partial cover. Green, vegetal, grassy and lightly spicy hops with a light lemon-citrus tone and some cereal, grainy malt. Light, refreshing body with moderate carbonation. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2005
Couleur blonde pale, faible mousse blanche rapidement diminuante. Foin mouillé, houblon floral et un brin épicés. Pas beaucoup de goût, plutôt malté et agrémenté d’une faible touche florale. Corps semi mince, carbonatation présente, finale sèche. Générique et ennuyant! Échantillon, mondial de la bière, Juin 2005.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Sample, from 12 oz bottle at the Mondial. Clear, light straw-gold with a bit of head retention...somewhat spicy nose of cut grass and lime...very soft, fairly malty body with herbal undertones and grassy dry hops towards the finish...fairly watery and indistinct, but the bitterness lingers...

DocLock (7729) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Gold pour, with medium white head. Hopcit aroma. Tastes pale malty, with some hop presence and a crisp finish. Maybe I’m burned out a bit, but pilseners bore me these days, even in 90 degree weather.

The Lure:
Subtle hay and mild grain evoke the German origin of the malts. Estival simplicity, on the verge of being boring.

The Festivities:
Dry and bitter towards the end, the grassy hops and haystack merge coherently, but without much force. Quenching, well-brewed and straightforward, no pretention of greatness here.

Transcendence:
Grass blade in mouth, the cowboy tips his hat down for a nap.
