Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
GABF 2010. POurs a pale yellow golden with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy crackery pils malts, some straw and husk dustiness with light herbal hints. Flavor is light pils malt, cracker, some white wine hints, mineral light metallic, grass, earth and a dry mineral finish with a bit of astringency. A bit off.

Draught at the brewery. Looks like their pils differs greatly between batches. Luckily mine was pretty nice. Slightly above average pils that had a little more hop than typical. Crisp, easy drinking style that finished with some cereal notes.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2009
clear pale straw yellow color with a thin white head and some spotty lacing. solvent-y alcohol aroma...ick, followed by grainy sweetness and fruit. the palate is WAY too sweet... flavors of strawberries, lemon and spicy grain. medium bodied leaning on syrupy which keeps it from being refreshing or enjoyable. 3/3/4/2/8/2.0

decaturstevo (4664) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Golden pour with creamy white head and lace. Corn, light malt, and a hint of hops. Light corn, very light malt, and a light bitter. Pretty foamy but not thin. A beer close to being real good.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a clear pale golden color with a thin and fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Light hops aroma with faint malt and yeast in the background. Light-bodied with peppery hops, malt and yeast flavors. The finish is mildly bitter with hops and spice aftertaste. Average overall.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Consumed on draft at brewery, 12/30/07. Incredibly clear, pale golden beer with some active carbonation and a head that went down to a thin skin fairly quickly. Aroma - rubbery, solvent. Uh-oh. Luckily, flavor is corn and a hint of malt graininess. Mild astringency, even milder bitterness. Nothing special.

on tap-pours a dissipating white head and pale yellow color. Aroma is crisp light fruit. Taste is crisp light fruit/grassy hops, grain. Light body but not thin. Good effervescence.

Very light aroma with only hints of yeast and dough. Clearish yellow in color. Bland flavor - nothing really there. Overly thin. Slight medicinal finish.

Nice simple apple juice like fruity yeasty malt aroma. Clear medium gold color. Nice crispness, yet a bit thin. Lightly hopped, but I thought this was actually a pretty decent pilsner and was one of the better beers at Tenaya Creek.
