Pale golden straw pour. The nose is soft and quite hoppy. Lots of light lemony Saaz hops. Fresh and dry with an assertive hop bitterness. A bit of grassy straw flavour and some light pale malt character. Surprisingly assertive pils, actually.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Thirsty Bear. Light soft hops aroma, with neutral fruity notes and some mild pils malt sweetness. Beany. Golden clear body with thin white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts with medium hops bite, light pilsner malt sweetness and some carbonic fizzy acidity. A little dull to be considered crisp, but is fairly refreshing. Finish is floral bitter hops, on the harsh side, with lasting bitter chalky character on the tongue. Muted bitter beany after.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting tray sample at the brewpub. Pale golden with a sticky white head. Not the most pleasant aroma-- sweaty, wet hair, grains. I suspect the lines ned clening. Flavours are decent pale malt with low leafy hop biterness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Willibecker pour at the brewpub. Color is dark golden/light amber. Has a sticky lacing on the surface and a visible carbonation through the body. Aroma is muted herbal hops, which are bitter and clean and a white bread maltiness behind it. Flavor is very "poppy" on the hops and still that clean white bread maltiness behind that. It is a bit heavy on the malts, or a slightly dull malt flavor for the overall structure of the beer.
