Draft at the brewpub. Very clear and light, fresh wet hay nose. Super-clean and crisp, light but firm maltiness, subtle finishing earthy hops. Good not great.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Tap at Barcade: Pale clear golden pour with almost a greenish hue (weird) and a white film of head. Clean aroma- some crackery light pale malts with a touch of diacetyl that fades with a few swirls. Some mild grassy hop notes as well. Light body with diacetyl in the flavor as well- despite that it’s fairly dry and clean. Some biscuity malts and mild noble hop peppery notes. Not bad, sessionable- though slightly macro feeling.

On tap at the Beechtree. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. Light grain and sweet caramel and honey aromas. A touch sweet and a little metallic. Crisp finish with some faint biscuit tones.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Grainy dank malt, a bit musky almost tastes a bit oxidized or stale. Not so good.
