jgb9348 (5008) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Clear golden coloured body with a strong lemony aroma. Very mild taste, along with malty and a light hop flavour throughout. The finish is very smooth and subtle and remains mild. A very simple beer - done to the style, but not such a great offering. I sampled this beer on draught at the brewpub on 28-February-2007.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 21, 2006
pint comes a bright, suprisingly deep, amber, with a nice white head that retains well and leaves good lace. herbaceous nose, with deep woody notes, hangs heavy over a toasty maltiness, with a light nuttiness. super tasty pils starts clean and malty, with again a bit more character (toasted) than standard pils maltiness. hops balance nicely, with cleanly spiced flavors mixing in with a good solid kick of bittering. really outstanding, with a nice, crisp kick. gorgeous take on a pilsner, though perhaps a bit a-typical in its malt character - but who cares? it’s an awesome drinking beer. a pils made w/pale ale malt?

Oakes (13270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2006
Golden colour. Hardly any aroma. Crisp hoppiness and light malts on the palate with a fair amount of earthy continental hop notes. Serviceable if a bit bland.

omhper (20669) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale golden. Dryish with dense, clean mouthfeel. A fair amount of grainy malt combined with some grassy, spicy hops and a lingering salty bitterness makes this a decent pilsener.

Gorbalev (2999) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
On tap, at the brewpub. Medium yellow, big bubbly white head. Very mild aroma, where I might be able to sniff a few faint pils type hops. Good hop characteristic however is taste - nice pils like taste. Light malt, light mouthfeel all come together - a good pils. Just put some aroma in to boost the rating!

On tap at the brewpub in downtown San Francisco. Light golden por, thin white head. Bit of a fresh lake water aroma to it. Clean, crisp flavor, some sweet honey accents with a back end of olive oil. Slightly thin mouthfeel. Decent starter to the sampler.
