Draught @ Toronado - Pours clear golden with a small white hhead...aroma is hoppy and clean, grassy with a slight lager skunk...flavour is initially thin and grainy, and the noble hop profile kicks in mid palate, plenty of bitterness, hops linger with a light maltiness...finish is similar...fun stuff

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Monk’s Kettle. Nice noble hop aroma characteristic of a Bohemian or classic German pils. Light sweet pale malt, light beany tang with carbonic gaseousness. Medium golden amber clear with foamy white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation, soft palate with little burn. Starts with medium carbonic acidity, light pale malt sweetness and a bit burst of hop bitterness. Floral notes and a bit grassy. Clean bitter finish that falls short of crisp, but very enjoyable. Bitter after.

On tap at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours a transparent bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of grassy fresh Saaz hops and smooth pale malts with a floral lager yeastiness. Starts with a smooth light sweetness and crisp floral hop bitterness before a smooth clean finish. An enjoyable and very drinkable pilsener.

Woodshop. Gold pour. Aroma is hoppy, but yeasty. Looks like it could be boring but wow the flavor is wonderful. Great hops, some malt and yeast. Impressive. Damn impressive beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: A hazy pale golden color with a fluffy white head which leaves some mild lacing. Served in an absolutely awesome Moonlight brewing glass (which I purchased).
S: A nice earthy and spicy hop aroma accompanied by citrus notes and a bit of sweet malt.
T: The flavors are quite similar to the nose. The hops definitely take the lead and lend a great earthy and spicy quality to the beer. The malt is certainly there, as are the citrus flavors. A pretty nice balance.
M: The carbonation is plentiful and helps to create a light, refreshing beer drinking experience.
D: This is a really refreshing and easy drinking beer. I’m not generally much of a lager fan, but this just has such great flavors and a nice light feel to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Toronado (rating from 2007 notes). A golden color with a white head. A dusty and light malt aroma. A nice body and fresh with a hint at something slightly better than a typical pilsener.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Flavor Bistro.
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with pale golden straw hues when held to a light source and a frthy, soapy two finger white head with excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with streaks and spots of soapy chunks of lace.
Slightly earthy/funky with a musty grassy/straw presence in the nose. Subtle earthy hops and a prominent pilsner malt character. There’s also a good bit of light fruit, eapeciLly apple and banana.
Medium body which is happily much fuller than ai expected with a nice crisp light hop presence up front followed by a prominent pilsner malt presence and a very tasty earthy straw grass character. Very complex and easy to drink. ABV is decently masked with only slight alcohol presence. Light and crisp with a enough of a subtle hop bite up front and full malt body to make it complex and interesting. Recommended.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beachwood about a week ago. Poured a goldish color with a small white head. Lacing. Aroma of wet bread, cornbread with a small dash of spice and citrus. Flavor of cornbread, and a bit blander than expected overall. Earthy hops with some citrus/lemon elements. Didn’t live up to the hype for me
