On Tap at the Jolly Roger
Slightly hazy light yellow with a full creamy white head and lacing that coats the glass in sheets. Lots of continuous rising bubbles. Typical extremely light malt aroma. Slightly of soap and cereal. Flavor is soft light malts, slightly of corn or other vegetativeness, but pleasant and agreeable. This beer would go far to help me forget that I donít like pilsners.

Has a bicuity baked bread grassy nose, some fruitiness. Gold color, decent head. Good chewy malt sweetness, balanced by a somewhat complex spicy hop bitterness. Nice carbonation, easy drinking and crisp--but it really delivers with some complexity. The longer than expected finish is something I can only describe as simply "tasty". This is a very easy drinking beer that has more to it than your typical American Pale Lager. In fact, this might be one of the best "neo" American Pale Lagers made. Really enjoyable easy drinking beer for any occasion.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 Draft. Clear yellow, filtered. Nose is minimally hoppy but clean and bright. Some minimal sulphur/chemical scents. lemon sweetness to the hops, fresh and mild corn syrup nose. Crisp, wet, perfectly clean with a properly full body and a sharp and bright fullness to the malt body. well made, well lagered. Better than many of the ales I found around Seattle on draft. love it. I could drink this all day every day.

A little soapy, somewhat hoppy aroma for a lager. This is a pretty darn good lager. A lot of hops in the finish. I actually prefer this to the pils.

The dry hopped version. Clean, a bit dull, a bit stale malt, the stuff is just dull bur fine.

On tap @ the brewpub. Pours clear gold with bright white head and nice lacing. The mild aroma contains floral hops and some mild graininess and not much else. At times I had a difficult time smelling anything at all out of the glass. It has a solid lager flavor with sweet to mildly grainy maltiness balanced by chewy noble type floral and spicy hops. Nice session brew.

Draft, standard at The College Inn. Crisp, clean pour. Straight up solid lager, but with robust souring and off-malting. Clean but not what Iím after.

Draught at Lockspot Fish & Chips Bar, Seattle
Blond color. It has a quite nice aroma of malt. Also the mouthfeel is good, quite crispy, although it gets a paper and corn character at the end. Good bitterness level.

Tap. Light copper pour with a finger of white head. Apple, fruit, grain, refreshing. Very strong grain taste (in a good way) initially and at the finish. Less flavorful in the middle. Lighter to medium body. Actually pretty good
