3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the Jolly Roger brewery/taproom grill in suburban Seattle, WA. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a creamy white head that slowly dissipates with good retention and some nice lacing. Aroma of crystal golden grain malt, some citrus zest and flowery hops wit a touch of butter. Taste is light bodied with some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, citrus zest, some sweet pears and a touch of lemon. Finish is semi-sweet with a golden grain malt aftertaste. An excellent summer pils.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden colour. Rich saaz nose, with hints of pale malts. The flavour is thin on the malts, but yet they impact the mouthfeel a bit anyway. Hop bitterness is moderate. It lacks the voluptuous tang of the best Czechs but its a solid, refreshing American example.

Tap - Eastside Club, Oly
Golden in color with a light head. Semi malty with a nice flavor. Buttery, malty and no hops. Crips finish to this beer it was cold and tasty for a hot day. Great lawnmower beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On draught. Pours a somewhat hazy pale lemon color with a thin layer of quickly dissipating white fizzy head. Aroma of white bread dough and some fruity pear yeast. Medium bodied, sparkling carbonated mouthfeel. Sweet pear and soft apple flavors with some doughy malt. A minimal hop presence leaves a slightly herbal smack lingering with a grainy, toothy finish. Too sweet and heavy to be refreshing, it lacks that desired crispness. No DMS or other off flavors, but simply too chewy and too much fruity characters to be a good example of the style.

On tap at The Flying Pig, Everett WA. Urine yellow. Crisp beginning but mellows to a buttery malt. Alcoholic bite. Also tasted at the brewery and it was much better here, for whatever reason.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2006 Tap at Ivar’s, Pier 54, Seattle
Pours gold with nice lacing. Aroma is sweet honey. Flavor is malt and hops, with a hint of sweetness in the finish. Palate is nice. Nice, light, and good for when you have 5 minutes to catch the 7:20 ferry to Bainbridge Island.
