3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at SD Brewery. Pours clear gold with a bubbly white head. Grass, hay, spun sugar, and grain in the nose. More straw and Saaz in the taste, but mixed with lemon and honey, and something funky (the yeast they tout?). Overall, an okay beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle from Southbay Drugs. Wow, this is good. Super nice golden color, slight aroma of bubble gum and spicy hops. Sweet, with a bit of peppery flavors in the background. Maybe I have just been craving a good lager lately, but this one really impressed me. I’m glad this is now available in bottles, as I will be drinking tons of this, especially come summer. Pilsener lovers rejoice!

Pours a clear lemon yellow with thick white head. Aroma is a light lemon citrus with earthy hay. Flavor is lemon, lavender, bread and caramel. Palate is creamy with a lot of carbonation.

Draft at SAN Airport. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Tasted a little skunky. Bitter finish. It wasn't very easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Courtesy SoLan. Pours a crystalline, pale yellow, with a steady and fine bead. Aroma is sweet, but a bit dank. Very little going on here. Flavor is odd, very sweet with almost no discernible hop character. Disappointing, as the other beers I have sampled from this brewery have been much better.

I love pilsner, and this is a fine example, worthy of any German brewmaster. Nice use of lactic acid, Jim. Thank you for being so generous with this well made lager. A perfect summer session beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer’s dominant hop character was matched equally by powerful carbonation and a creamy sourness. Distinctive lager aroma with a bronze color.

I’m not a lager-lover, but this one is quite good. Lemon and herbs aroma, light flavor and very little of that nasty metallic lager aftertaste.
