3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 Crystal clear, dry looking body. A heavily carbonated gold pour results in a fizzy, thin white head with decent retention. Noble hops clearly dominate and comprise the bulk of the aroma. Backing notes include lightly toasty grains, wet grass, raw cereal grains and wheat, flowers. The flavor is very accessible. Light to fleeting moderate hop bitterness, fresh and earthy grass notes and lightly sweet malts all combine for a gentle, fresh and quenching taste. Acidity is negligible. The palate is soft and somewhat fizzy. Finishes light, long and earthy/grassy, bitterness lingering in corners of the mouth. Well done, though not as exciting or as crisp as I’d envisioned.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (12oz). Pours bright pure clear gold, decent quick-diminishing white head, some lacing. Smells like a nice, fresh, grassy pils - good moderately cereal grain body. Simple, soft and fresh pils flavour - light grain, some honey sweetness, soft grassy/floral hops in the lengthy lightly bitter finish. Decent body, good astringency (soft, soft), mild but adequate life, not an insistent flavour but it’s not shy - or a lawnmower beer. Just another solid beer from a brewery that usually "gets" it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Above average pilsner. Faint spice notes and fruit. Well balanced but tame. Not as good as Capitol’s or Victory’s.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear dark golden color. Head was bubbly and white with good retention and lacing. Aroma was of grassy hops and green vegetables. Delicately sweet up front with mild hop bitterness and a crisp, clean finish. Light noble hop flavor without much malt backbone. Okay beer, but a certainly overrated the day I entered it (80th percentile). Maybe its better on tap.

Yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is grass, hops, and grain. Flavor is hops, malt, and grain. A bit heavier than expected. A solid, nice drinking brew. Thanks to hellomynameis for this bottle.

Bottle. Lots of pilsener malt and euro hops on the nose with bright noses of grass and hay. Pours golden copper with a bright white head. Fairly crisp on the palate. Slightly sour. Decently hopped. Hint of honey. Malty backbone. Medium body with average carbonation. Fairly rich and creamy pils.

Sampled at the RBSG 07 Grand Tasting. Nondescript grainy nose on this beer. Light gold color with minimal head. Not bad for a pilsner.
