Pours a cloudy gold with a white head and lacing. It has a great aroma of hoppy grapefruit, grass, some malt and yeast. The flavor is light, with some hops and malt up front and a slightly spicy middle and mild finish.

Growler from the pub courtesy furioudman. Thanks Derek. Vinnie brewing lagers? Probably the best lagered beer I’ve ever imbibed. Nose is mango, papaya, floral, and a hint of pine. Can I be sure it’s not a session IPA and actually fermented cold with a lager yeast (said very LOL). Maybe I should send a correction LOL, Crystal clear gold with a big white, heavy lacing head. Flavor is moderately bitter with a hint of caramel. Vinnie went BIG with this one. Awesome!

Pours a pale golden color with a white head. Hop, citrus, floral and grain aroma. Peach, apricot, grapefruit, floral, pine and biscuit flavors. Light body and average carbonation with a floral and hop finish. Super bitter for the style.

1/2 pint at Russian River. Good aroma, sweet. Fruity. Mango/ apricot. Sweet toasted malt. Clean golden yellow color, ok head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Lighter body, thin smooth mouthfeel, crisp bitter finish, tad sweet in the pilsner world, but darn tasty flavor best part, imo.

Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Hazy golden color with small white head. Grapes and mango, tropical hopping. Semi-dry, thirst-quenching and tempting. Feels like a nice fruity white whine. Excellent drinkability. Smooth mouthfeel. Pilsner? The hops in here are very fruity for a Pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is hoppy and dank. Appearance is light with a creamy head. Taste is a hoppy dankness that lasts. Palate is dank as well. Overall, this is one of the hoppiest "pilsners" I have ever had. It is more like a light pale ale. Would drink more though.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
VERY nice pleasing aroma, not subtle but not overpowering. bubblegum and vanilla smells! Appearance is the definition of a pilsener - golden and bubbly! Nice taste, very refreshing. Mouthfeel is a little biting, not extremely pleasant - not bad obviously.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Stevo’s Pre-GABF Tasting (Denver, CO). Pours a lively lemony golden hue, bright and fiery with some decent haze. Frothy whitish head atop with nice ringer, laces ok. Aromas are distinctly tart and fruity, firmer pineapple juice with touches of straw, bread, gentle dough. Lively green apple, some richer citrus and pineapple juice. Gentle dryness, subtle yeastiness and spice. Initial is a bit dry and mellow, touches of gentle bitterness, a bit metallic with subtle tropical fruit, bread and gentle citrus. Pear, apple, some cobwebs. Straw, gentle hay and mellow spiciness. Backend is dry, light with just a subtle bitterness, earth, gentle floral and faint spice. Dry bread, some faint soap, touch of lilac and tropical fruit. Quite crushable, a bit mellow and soft on the backend. I could certainly drink a lot. The hop character is pretty nice overall, bitter and dry on the backend but lacking character. Touches of gentle tropical wafts, bubblegum and dry bitter quality. Nice stuff.

At Stephen’s 2nd annual Great American Beer Festival Tasting on 10/1/14. Pours gold with some bubbles. Aroma is nice soft hops, delicate pils malt, so drinkable. Taste is awesome dry, soft pils malt and nice fruity mosaic-like hop notes. I would love to session this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Fresh hoppy aroma tropical fruit, mango and lemons. Smells great and nice light body with a dry finish. This goes down very easy, I wish it came in a bigger bottle. There is something to be said about having a beer with high drinkability.
