On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Real average. Light lemon, a bit watery, subdued yeast. Texture is thin, but still a refreshing beer.

Pours a straw yellow color. Lots of bubbles to it. Good and fizzy. Little hop aroma and a touch of it in the taste too. Otherwise a classy pilsner. Another good option from Moylans.

On tap@ the brewpub. Served clear golden with a thin creamy white film. Light flower petal hops with some light citrus rinds atop a saltine cracker malt backbone, faint fresh pasta there as well. If the aroma wasnt so faint, itd have gotten an 8. Flavor had the hops even fainter with more malts and some honey sweetness. The lack of hops kept it from being as crisp as Id have liked. Bitterness peaked around a 2 in the finish. Low prickly carbonation with a light body. Actually a pretty darn decent pils from an American brewer--just add more hops next time!

Draught. Poured pale gold yellow with thick white head. Hoppy aroma with malt edge. Medium malt flavour with biscuit and toast tinges. Lekker gentle hop finish.

on tap at papago... hazy gold pour with fluffy white head. smells like sweetened hand soap, pils grain, earth and lemon zest. the flavor is similar... awfully sweet for a pils and lacking a bitter crispness i so love in the style. it does finish a bit dry but it tastes a little dirty or muddled. the body is medium while the texture is a touch oily and thick since it lacks the usual crisp character. 6/4/5/3/13/3.1

On tap at the Pizza Port Session Ale Fest. Pours with a bit of a chill hazed yellow body and a fading white head. Aroma has a bit of diacetyl, fruit, bread and grass. Taste is fruity, bready and crisp. Good. Fizzy and dry.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours gold with a white head. Med body. Flavor is crisply bready. Hop is noble, but this isnt imperial by a long shot. A very nice drink that wont interfere with food. Finishes pleasant. Considering the fairly low hop level I was surprised to find myself enjoying it and drinking it all.

TimE (3971) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 19, 2014
Pale golden color. Cereal nose with noble hops. Mildly hoppy nose. Well balanced, but fairly undistinguished. Very mild finish. Well made, but would be better with a lot more hops.
