COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This straw colored lager is brewed in true European tradition. Saaz and Tettnang hops provide a slight floral character in the nose and a soft, elegant, bitter finish.

Once dimensional - tasted like Bud. So boring.

Samples at Los Gatos Brewery. Golden hue with a lovely carbonation. Aroma noble hops and biscuit malt. Medium, tangy body. Floral, peppery hops fill the mouth with biscuit malt provide some balance. Long, earthy finish. Good, clean pils.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Clear gold with a lasting white head. Metallic, grainy, and spicy nose. The flavor is like a copper penny with some herbal bitterness and bread as well. Thin and prickly. They are getting the bitterness about right, but the malt is lacking and the metallic notes almost kill it.

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - OCT 27, 2008
On tap. Straw colored in the glass with little head or lacing. Slightly spicey at the beginning, with a heavy, hop grassy bitterness at the end. Nothing particularly remarkable about it.

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Draft. Golden beer with a nice white head. Grassy, slight hay, mineral aroma. grainy, hay flavor with slight grass. Malt and grain lingers. Medium body. Blah.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 01/10/2005 Clear golden coloured crisp on the palate and hoppy. Some dryness in a slightly bitter finish.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 5, 2005
This was actually a decent pils... or maybe I thought it was decent after trying everything else the brewpub had to offer. More body and malt than I was expecting, a pleasant plus. Other than that I have nothing to say.

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2005
I started not to rate this beer simply because I am not a pilsner person. I thought this beer tasted like, dare I say, Bud Light. Nice color, but not a favorite of mine. If you like a pilsner, you might like this better then me.

NormanBlunt (4) - USA - OCT 31, 2005 does not count
Initial palate reaction is one of disappointment as the rich golden color is at odds with the insipid taste. The bitter after taste only adds to the poor quality of this product. Budwesier or Miller would be viable alternatives to this beer.

Tap. A golden color (more so than I expected). A wheat yeasty aroma with a smooth crisp flavor.
