Brewed along with the folks from Taps (Brea, CA) at Sierra Nevada Beer Camp (#43, January 2011). This is a pilsner style beer, but hopped aggressively with New Zealand hop varieties.

On tap at Capital Ale House - Downtown on 04/22/2011. Mostly clear golden amber body with a small creamy off white head. Sweet spicy and floral hop aroma with a pale malt background. Medium light body with moderately high carb.

Nice and golden with a etched sheet of whites atop. Smells of corn, soft grains, some white grape, a bit of cut grass and a touch of soil. Flavor is plenty grainy, some hints of metal. Lots of fresh alfalfa flavor in there - nice flavor. The metallic flavor cuts into the palate a little more than I’d prefer. Medium bodied with smooth and fine carb and an off dry finish. Nice beer.

12oz bottle from the recent Beer Camp mixed twelve pack. the box was dated 6/26/12 so this is about a month and a half old. Bright yellow color, clear, looks like a pils to me. Aroma is fruity, cereal, fruity pebbles cereal. Crisp feel to it. Flavor is fruity with a grainy finish that is so damn reminiscent of a bowl of cereal. This is a solid pils and one I would probably buy regularly if it was their summer offering or something. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-13-2012 23:43:03

Sampled on draft at Fat Heads this beer poured a medium amber color with a small foamy off white head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was faint floral and perfumey hops. The flavor as sharp and crisp perfume and floral hosp with a light bready undertone. Medium length perfume and bread finish. Light to medium body. Unimpressive.

PhillyCraft (5753) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2012
On tap at Pour House, pours a slightly hazed golden color with tony bubbled white head, medium in size, alright amt of lacing. Aromas of grass, hay, wood, hops. Taste is citrus, wood, popcorn, german malts. Very, very dry, with a lot of carbonation. Nice hop character but not as funky as I expected for new zealend hops. Very earthy and rustic tasting pils from sierra.

I have no idea when or where I rated this beer. It had to have been between april and july of 2011. the only title I have in my notebook is "SN Sticke" and this is the only beer in the database that would fit that name I think. Anyhow, my description pretty much lines up with the other guy that rated this, so i’m gonna stick this rating here until an admin moves it. Clear golden pour with grassy hop nose and lemon zest. Pretty damn good pils - not as good as prima pils - but really good. I have written down that I thought they used syrachi ace hops possibly?

A: The pour is clear golden straw in color with a couple of fingers of white head. S: A very nice citrus hop aroma is immediately noticeable. Big time lemon and lemon zest with some nice grapefruit. A bit of a pale malt aroma, perhaps some pine, and a little bit of yeast. T: Starts off with an almost candied lemon flavor. A hint of soap along with the intense citrus flavors. A fair amount of pine which gives a nice bitterness to the beer. Mild bread and pale malts. M: Medium in body and perhaps low-medium in carbonation. O: At first I thought this was some random German beer they had as a guest tap, but this was quite nice. Taps stepping it up with three pretty solid lagers on this trip.
