On tap at The Pub in the Monte Carlo, Las Vegas. Comes clear pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grain and hops. Taste is grain, malt, citrus and some hops. Mild bitterness. Pleasant.

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.

Aubrey (3432) - 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.

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

BelgianBeerGal (3197) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2010
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.

OldGrowth (2670) - 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.

lb4lb (2546) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2007
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.

Gription79 (2263) - 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.

ghawener (1458) - 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.

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.
