3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
