adnielsen (9467) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a golden appearance with a creamy white head. Sweet malt, cracker, grassy, herbal hoppy aroma. Kind of mash-like flavor. Quite sweet malts. The hops have a spicy herbal element that’s nice but it’s just not dry enough.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Draft Flight 3/23/05 (Brewery)-Pours a clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma of grains and that’s about it. Taste of grains along with some hops. This light bodied brew is not bad but not my cup of tea.

monk191 (1092) - California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Not bad for a pils, but pretty boring. Pours and ugly yellow. No smell at all. Taste is a little bit fruity, with a bit of hops in the finish. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lusikka (6550) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, San Francisco. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of malts, honey and some grainy notes. Flavour of malts, grassy hops, mild sweet fruitiness, honey and a lot of hay. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a grainy, light bitter finish with again, loads of hay. Quite a basic pils with an exceptional amount of hay in both aroma and flavour.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Clear golden pour with a white head. Watery nose, but a bit of lemon peel and a mild solvent note. A light fruit ester quality and some pale malt sweetness. The lemon is quite pronounced on the palate. Some mild hop bitterness, grass, and sweet pale malts.
