Dogbrick (8688) - 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.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Dull straw colour. Slight diacetyl, slight grain and some spiciness. A bit peanutty, and also a bit underfermented (worty). Herbal but sweet finish. Almost tastes like Delster NA.

Ratman197 (10224) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2006
On tap @ Tenaya Creek poured a clear golden yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of bread, straw and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of cereal and light citrus with a crisp clean finish.

Suprised to see that this won a gold medal. Pale yellow-watery appearance. Mostly there is just something really odd about this beer. Dry hop finish, but also lumpy. Not great for sure.
