COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the Bavarian tradition, this Pilsner is golden-hued and highly hopped. It is brewed with German variety Magnum hops, then lagered for drinkability.

Bottle. Pours a light yellow with a decent white head. Aroma of light grain, some dry grassy hopiness to go along, a bit of corn too. Taste is light and sweet, nothing off putting here, light grainy, bready taste with a bit of hops. Palate is very soft carbonation, I would have enjoyed something just a tad more lively. Not great, but still quite probably the best 4% lager I’ve had.

As compared to the mass brew stuff, this is a decent beer, but when you can get Victory Prima Pils, Blue Paddle, and a handful of other decent mico pilsners, why bother. Then again, I don’t live in Utah and maybe this is a good as it gets...

Got to try a bottle of this thanks to "Mr. Plumpy" and his mountain biking trip to UT. Colour... light straw with no head. Nose... well.... rather like uric acid! Do I really want to drink this...? Well... here goes.... Palate... whew...! Light ’n’ fluffy, a quick shot of hops with some bread dough, then, pfffft! Gone!

BlackForestCO (975) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear golden-yellow color with a thin, wispy white head that left some light lacing. Aroma of straw, bread, some light doughy yeast, and soft grassy hops. Smooth, crisp entry with some cereal and light straw that transitions into a light graininess that finishes lightly bitter with some soft grassy hops. Moderate carbonation and crisp mouth feel. Overall, a solid pilsner, but it seemed to lack some of the finesse and nuance that make others so enjoyable.

bitbucket (2158) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2009
On tap, somewhere near Zion National Park. Pours clear gold with a lacy white head. Fruit and pine nose. A little bread in the taste with a crisp pine finish. Tastes like a pale lager with ale yeast.

PorterPounder (5195) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2009
On tap at the Salt Lake City Airport Location as part of the sampler. Pale gold appearance, fluffy white head. Somewhat neutral aroma. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with some brief bready accents. Clean, even mouthfeel. Good session starter.

Light hops smell on this yellow brew. Dry hops flavor with a clean and not too crisp aftertaste.

alexanderj (3266) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2009
On tap at SLC location. Color was a clear, bright gold. Aroma was a bit weak; with maybe some bread and grass. Flavor was better. Bready with a lingering, earthy/spice finish. Nice and surprising beer.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of BelgianBeerGal. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazed peach color with a large head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is grassy and slighty nutty with faint fruit notes. Taste is grassy with a bit of corn and syrupy fruits. Medium bodied, Decent.
