Bottle @ Greg’s dump, pregaming Trailhead Tuesday. Pours a dark yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly spicy, herbal noble hops in the aroma along with a slightly mineral-like smell. Somewhat sweet flavor. Toasted grains. Herbal hops. A bit chalky. Light fruitiness. Not all that offensive but a bit sweet.

On tap. Poured a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a good amount of grain and hay with a bit of an earth note and some sweetness coming in. Flavor was similar with lots of hay and earthy grains backed by a bit of sweetness. Lacked

DocLock (9876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Thanks to LeopoldStoch for this one. Pours pale gold with 1-finger white head. Nice clean appearance that is appropriate for a pils. The aroma is pale malt, spicy black peppery lemongrassy hopcitrus. The flavor is pale malty, with a black pepper hoppiness and mid-palate citrus. Smooth, crisp palate that is on the light side. Still, this is a fine summer pils, one that I would gladly quaff any time.

12 oz bottle, thanks Legion242! Pale yellow beer, slightly hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is quite citrusy, lemon, spicy hops, a touch of diacetyl as well. Flavour shows nice malt/hop balance, moderate bitterness, and prominent spicy hops. The diacetyl is quite distracting though. Bready finish.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 7, 2008
Pours with a largish, foamy white head covering a clear, hay colored body. Suprisingly good retention and lacing. Aroma is fruity and citrusy (grapefruit) with some hay. Slightly bitter, but mostly bland taste. Watery mouthfeel.
