COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first lager produced with the 20 bbl brewhouse. This pilsner is a clear golden color. Four additions of Saaz hops lend a spicy-floral hop component.

Strong grain aroma with a little yeast. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Sweet grain beginning fading in the finish.

I gotta tell ya...I bought this case sight unseen (uh, tasted)...and I was not impressed...a bit let down actually...I was so impressed with Dale’s and OC that I assumed this would be great...well, it wasn’t...although, since I had to drink 24 of them, I did aquire the taste and overall it wasn’t terrible...I will give it the drinkability factor...I could put a few down real easy...had an overall nice earthy grassy taste to it...slightly bitter, and chewy...good to have in the cooler when the BBQ is outside...otherwise, ehhh, I’m not so sure...as I’ve seen in some of the other ratings, better than most of the mass produced stuff.

Light yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of wet paper and malt. Light slightly sweet malt flavor followed by a tad of bitter. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy. A very drinkable beer.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Pours gold with little head. Aroma-not really any just smells like beer. Taste is crisp with a peppery hops taste. Definitely good to drink outside.

crackedmachine (477) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is lacking...not much there. Mild, slightly sweet, bready flavor with a slightly bitter aftertaste, and a tiny hint of alcohol. Nice and refreshing.

Can from the grocery store. Never had this, figured I would give it a shot. Pours out looking like Budweiser, but really, why did I pour this out? It is a pilsner, from a can, it should be consumed that way. Smell is full of corn and actually some hops here too. Taste is kind of watery, but lively carbonation, and a real easy beer to drink when it is hot outside. For what it is, this beer is good. This is a good alternative to Heineken and its priced the same. Better from the can than from a glass.

joeneugs (4888) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 29, 2009
For a pilsner, this was a really good beer. It’s just not my favorite style. Pours a crystal clear yellow with a large, fine white head. It has a dusty, lemony hop aroma with a hint of sweetness. The flavor is a yummy lemony orange with the great pilsner malts showing through. Crisp, clean and pretty dry, but again, a hint of sweetness to balance it out nicely. A bit seltzery, but very tasty.

Can. This beer is very light. Not too much flavor or aroma wise still better than the normal mass produced pilsners.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Can; purchased at Liquor Mart in Boulder. Pours a nearly-clear dark gold with a frothy white head that slowly recedes leaving behind patchy lace. The nose is pretty muted: lightly sweet biscuity malt with just a hint of earthy/grassy hops. Light-bodied with soft effervescence and a crisp, drying, mildly bitter finish. The flavor is a round/solid pils malt body with a surprisingly bitter grassy counterbalance that isn’t nearly as prevalent on the nose. (Curiously, they get a flavor from the Saaz that I haven’t ever tasted in another pilsener before. It’s still "grassy" but it’s like a different species of grass...it’s difficult to describe.) This beer grew on me as I got deeper into the glass, but it certainly didn’t "wow" me.

Canned. Poured slightly hazy paler golden with a sticky, well-retained cap of white head. The aroma picked up ground lemon rind, floral, and black peppery notes over a soft pale malt and bready base.. juicy and well-presented. The flavor opened with tangy lemony notes, rolling into a thicker honey and pale malt base.. peppery spices were laced throughout.. finished with some sticky malts plus refreshing lemon and spice. Light-medium bodied, but it got caught up at a few points on the palate.. flow was just OK.. overall a tasty brew that I’d drink again.
