DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2009
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.

beastiefan2k (2359) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2009
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.

I had this on draft at the Thirsty Bear brewpub. Clear golden pour, malty w/ a bit of a hop bite, not bad.

The bright light from the polar regions descends upon you, gleaming, covering you, warming you, shinning, through you, in you, cooling. It satisfies you. Aaaah.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: Light golden with a fading white head. Sweet grains in the aroma- some apparent bird feed character. Light body with a sweet and grainy flavor. Bird feed and corn with hardly any bitterness. One-dimensional with too much residual maltose.

rayOfBeer (656) - El Cerrito, California, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Poured from tap at brewpub a darker golden with medium white head. Aroma is grassy with bisquit notes. Flavor has some graininess with bisquit, cereal, a light grassiness and a mild lingering bitterness. Palate is somewhat malty, grainy and a little dry bitter. Overall not bad and goes well with the food.
