On tap at the brewpub. It pours a clear, pale golden and a white head. Grass, hay, portable malts and a fruity touch in the aroma. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with some hay and pale malts. Medium to thin body, pleasant carbonation. A bit boring this one, by far from bad. 130806

A golden pils with a thick creamy white head. A light malt aroma with some bready note, german hops, very classy. In mouth, a biscuitty malt with strong Saaz hops, smooth yet HUGE. On tap at Russian River Beer and BBQ Revival, August 15 2009.

TheAlum (6487) - 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.

On tap at Russian River in August 2009. A: Pours a dark straw color with a nice white head and good lacing as it goes down. Plenty of carbonation bubbles visible through the transparent brew. S: Lots of Noble hops accompany a solid pilsner malt base. T: The hops dominate atop a slightly-sweet and grainy malt base. M: A little heavier than most pilsners, while still maintaining a nice, smooth mouthfeel with the right amount of carbonation. D: Quite drinkable and very sessionable. This one and the Aud Blonde were nice surprises at RR--some very solid sessionable beers from what a great brewery. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-04-2009
