Aug 8, 2011 at brewpub. Super light pale yellow. White petri head. Light honey and hay. Taste is pale malt and light bitter. Honey behind. Just a lager. Was hoping for something huge or large. This wasn’t it.

big thanks to Kan for sharing this growler after a rainy walk home from gtmw, seemed like the perfect time for this one. Pours hazed yellow with foamy white head. Nose grassy, pepper, floral. Flavors nice pepper, floral, sweet grainy, bit too sweet but very good.

A - Served a hazy golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head atop and lots of visible carbonation. The head faded down slowly leaving behind some nice lacing in the process. S - Aroma was a mix of yeast with some banana character, some grains, and some lemon. There was also some light hops and spices in the background. T - Starts off with some good yeast flavor and some slightly tart lemon. Through the middle, the tartness fades and some grain flavor replaces it with some hops and light spices coming through. The finish is a mix of yeast and grain flavors that linger nicely. M - Medium-light bodied with moderate-plus lively carbonation. Feels super smooth and crisp without being watery or thin. D - Very drinkable. The flavors blend really nicely here and are a bit stronger than many pilsners. However, the beer still retains the great tradition mouthfeel and crispness of a good pilsner.

Russian river pils. Growler much thanks to ken for sending this... Golden hazy golden hue with a creamy white head... Aroma of bready soft grain and a light lemony citrus hop component... Flavors are light lemony citrus notes alongside some grains with a medium bitterness towards the backend. the beer itself is entirely quaffable. lighter bodied, as expected, with a decent level of carbonation to add to it. solid offering and an easy drinker for sure. 8/4/8/4/15

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Growler shared by Kan. Pours well hazed golden straw pour, well hazed with a nice frothy offwhite head, dies down with a small thicker ring. Aromas are toasty breads, flaked wheat, dry grass and florals. A mellow touch of spice, faint bread dough yeast. Initial is lighter bodied, dry and bready, touches of flaked cereal grains. Dry grass, florals, a touch of spice. Backend throws mellow sweet cereak grains, touch of toast, with dry florals and grass. Finish is lingering light bread yeast, dry hops. Clean and well hopped. A healthy dryness, grass and spice. Really great sessioner full of flavor and good healthy hops.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2011 Draft at RR... Pissy light neon straw, light white head... Light sweet grains, with a bit of hops on the back... Light wet skunky grain, not a big fan

Got a growler of this @ Russian River. Poured into my new sound Czech boot glass. Aroma is great, has a nice hint of lemon. Flavor is also great, I love the bitterness level of this beer. I noticed all of their lighter stuff was nicely hopped. Overall a great beer!
