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 (672) - 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.

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.

GJF (1271) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2008
On tap at the brewhouse. A solid pilsner. Good malt flavors, light hopping. Dry finish. Good, but doesn’t really take any chances either.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pour is a dark blonde. Looks are normal with a thin lacey head with gaps. Very light on hops but rich malts. Goes dow quit nice, a well crafted pislner

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Blonde-bronze. Standard looking for the style with a broken lakes head. Feint hop aroma and crisp light hop and malt flavor. Almost antiseptic tannic, bitter-sour finish.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2008
From June 2007 tasting notes, sampled at Thirsty Bear. Attractive clear golden with a white head. Very faint, barely noticeable nose, a hint of grain and grass. The flavor is much more pronounced than the nose - pleasant light pils malty base, noble hops, lemon zest. Crisp and refreshing. Medium yet smooth/silky texture and proper, lively carbonation. Good beer, just needs some aroma hops.
