presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
Tap. Big lasting head. Light gold. Strong in your face aroma of perfume, flowers and soap. Flavour is all hops which are overly dominant. Can’t find the malt or beer under the hops.

ben4321 (4887) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Location: Draft at Rogue Public House in San Fran, 5/12/11

Aroma: It has a nice crisp, clean hop nose with some bread, grass, and some lemon
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a decent sized white head
Flavor: Clean and crisp hops, some sweetness balances the hop bitterness
Palate: The drinkability was high, with a light and somewhat creamy body
Overall Impression: This was a pretty decent german style pils, this is fairly bitter for the style. It was quite drinkable. I liked this one well-enough, but it certainly didn’t blow me away by any means.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 21, 2008

ChainGangGuy (4565) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Appearance: Hazy, dull, burnished gold body with a smallish, white head. Smell: Slightly grainy pils aroma completely dominated by a floral, citric hop scent. Hmm. I’m not so sure I like where this is headed. Taste: Grainy pilsner maltiness, nearly absent of any sweetness. Floral, caustically citric pith taste. The hop bitterness goes beyond prominent, beyond aggressive even, to really make for a rather harsh drink. The finish is grainy and displeasingly bitter. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: Excruciating and unpleasant. I dumped the remaining few ounces on the restaurant’s wall and within seconds a ChainGangGuy-sized hole had been eaten through both the dry wall and exterior bricks. This made for a quick getaway, allowing me to quickly flee the premises without paying.

I had this beer at Summits, Sandy Springs. Light colored. Nice hop aroma. Crisp, dry flavor. It has a long lasting hop bitterness that stays on the palate.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Poured a hazy gold with a thin but long lasting white head and plenty of lacing. Malty aroma was slightly sweet with a touch of earthy and perfume hop. Beer was served a too cold and more aroma came out as it warmed. Flavor of caramel malt with a good amount of hop finish. Medium bodied and dry finish.

zach8270 (3913) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2008
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Slightly hazy golden color with a puffy white head. Aroma is lots of floral and bitter hops with a touch of sweet malt and citrus. Flavor is floral and bitter at the beginning, moving to a sweet and citrus middle, and a rather bitter and clinging hoppy finish. Very nice.
