TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Sampler flight on tap at the brewery (Las Vegas, NV). Pours a gentle pale yellow hue, crisp straw, subtle faint haze with lively carbonation. A small frothy bright white head atop dies to a filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas show gentle bready malt, a gentle spiciness, cleaner sweet elements. Bread, straw, some grass. Gentle spiciness. Ok, a bit vague. Initial is well carbonated and a bit fuzzy up front. Bready malts meet a ton of green apple, a bit tart, some florals, gentle spice. Odd soapy feel. More green apple, a bit tart. Middle comes a bit back to life. Lighter end of the fold, well carbonated, dry and straw feel. Crisp bready malt, a bit crusty. Firmly dry. Backend and finish is a bit spicy, some straw, grass, and mellow dry elements. A bit odd at times, especially up front. A green apple and soapy harshness at times. Not my thing.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 5, 2013
Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is pretty basic lager aroma, but nothing really great about it. Grainy sweetness, bread, and a hint of biscuit. Floral hops, grass, and herbs. Some sweet grain and bread flavor. Light bitterness of herbal and grassy hops. A touch of yeast and apple esters. Maybe a bit watery.

ghawener (1433) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JAN 7, 2013
Draft: most micro / craft brewers struggle with the style of beer, no room for error. Food Pairing: Cheese quesadillas.

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 5, 2012
On draft at the brewery. Looks like a great pilsner. Aromas of corn, sulfur, and some graininess. The flavor is some graininess, but mostly an over powering bitterness. This easy drinking pilsner would be great in the Las Vegas great.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a mostly clear gold with a nice white head. Nose is grainy, lots of pils malt notes. Crisp and clean with some light herbal hopping. On taste, it’s clean and simple. Easy drinking, balanced. Nothing really shines, but not a bad beer at all.
