On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grain and a bit of popcorn with a hint of grass. Flavor has sweet grains and popcorn with a hint of green apple for the finish.

JK (5664) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2015
GABF 2015. A little sweet for a pilsner, malt, but it is hard to get away from the sweet flavor I am picking up and it is far too much for a pils. It is drinkable enough.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2004
(Great American Beer Festival 2004) Fairly weak pils. More in the style of a continental lager. No malt hop to be found.

Aubrey (3509) - 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.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2005
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.

Oakes (15490) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6641) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Sampled on draft this beer poured a yellow-gold color with a medium sized foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tart perfume with vague fruity hops and a bit of chalk. The flavor was tart, sour and a bit off with notes of fruity hops and egg white. Medium length finish. Light body. Not good.

Crystal clear straw body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, cereal, light dough. Taste is medium sweet, cereal, with the bitterness completely lacking. Watery light body.

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

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.
