beastiefan2k (2960) - 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 (3031) - 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.

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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear light orange color. The head was white and left some lace behind. Smelled of Saltine crackers, grass, and whiffs of pear and honey. Light bodied and dry. Tasted of fresh cereal grain and grassy hops. Not bad.

On tap at the brewhouse. A solid pilsner. Good malt flavors, light hopping. Dry finish. Good, but doesn’t really take any chances either.
