Leafy, green, vegetal hop nose. Hazy yellow golden coloured body with a low white head that recedes to ring. Grainy sweet malt flavour with some herbal hops and light bitterness. Light body with crisp, sharp, overly strong carbonation and somewhat watery texture. Sampled at GABF 2005.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Light golden and clear with a thin head. Light and lively carbonation; light body. Fairly sweet base (cereal, grains). Hops were grassy and flowery. Mild bitterness. Really missed a saaz kick.

(Great American Beer Festival 2004) Fairly weak pils. More in the style of a continental lager. No malt hop to be found.

OldGrowth (2750) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Sample at brewpub. Ok nose, litely lemon and sourdough. Clean pale yellow color. Sweet and bitter. Citrus, lemon lime, toasted malts, hint of a clove or corriander. Lite body, kinda creamy, little bite on finish. Tasty enough, very drinkable. Though it was my first brew of the day and I had been hiking for a few hours so almost anything would of been good.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - APR 12, 2004
on tap at brewpub: had to try this one because it won gold at the GABF. color was clear yellow with white head. not much aroma, maybe some slight malt. in the mouth bitter saaz hops and some hints of malt. pretty thin also. reminds me of a good european pilsner but watered down. somebody likes it, gold at GABF!!!

Very clean crisp beer. Light golden color with a simple nose. Citrus and on the palate with a hint of champagne. Nice sweet finish.

It think they called it a "European Pilsener", that explains the gold at the GABF.....taste was reminiscent of water.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - NOV 10, 2002
Very watery, weak, and almost flavorless except for a slight woody taste. Supposedly this won gold at the GABF one year...I’ve never given too much credit to GABF wins, but this had to be either a different beer or a bad keg.
