Draft @ Bouchon Yountville. Pours a bright, golden-yellow color; effervescent, high clarity; thin, fine-bubbled white head with light retention and attractive lacing. Lively mineral and citrus hop bitterness in the aroma; very, very faint hints of diacetyl alongside a toasty pils malt core, rounding things out; nicely juicy, crisp, and flawless for the style; light herbal notes present as well. Medium body; moderately high CO2; lightly creamy, non-astringent; while this is lovely in the mouthfeel, the actual malt core is kind of stale; light toastiness, modest levels of minerals, citrus, and herbal hop character; basic, bland cardboard-y malt notes, and really not enough hop flavor or bitterness to subvert that; a very modest diacetyl note rounding out the mouthfeel and adding a bit of heft to the body; definitely love a good pilsner, but this malt core is just too stale and the hops don’t follow through from the nose; still, tasty, but moderately flawed. Light, toasty finish with lingering Pils malt, soft minerals, and light lasting bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2011 On tap at Bouchon in Beverly Hills. Pours with a clear golden body and a resilient white head. Aroma was quite sweet, bready and grassy. Taste was very nice and hop forward for a pilsner. Tons of notes of spicy hop notes and lemon. Nice effervescence, not too much, perfect! Good, very good. I have had this beer many times since, and cannot think of a more perfect pilsner!

Sadly this beer is no longer produced as Russian River no longer has the capacity to contract this beer.
