brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 17, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a soapy white head. S: Not really any aroma to this beer. A little bit of a pale malt and bread aroma. Some mild lager yeast and perhaps some spicy hops and lemon zest. T: Some sweet bread flavor and some pale malts. Grass and lemon zest with a mild earthy, floral, and spicy (presumably) hop flavor as well. Lager yeast and a mild bitterness on the back end. M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Can’t really expect that a pilsener would hold up this long, but it’s done surprisingly alright.

daknole (9417) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2009
Hmmpf. Boring pils time. Yellowish pour. Malty grainy nose with some hops. Flavor has more hops than most crappy pils. For the style this one is above average but not amazing.

Cleaning out the fridge and there was a scratch 17 in there...12oz bottle. Poured a medium and hazy yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of wet grass, lighter citrus, and straw. Tastes of straw, earthy, grains, and lighter citrus.

Deep gold with off-white head. Nose is pale malt, Saaz hops, slight honey. Tastes crisp, hoppy, with pale malt, mild lemongrassy grains, some honey-apricotty flavor, and a smooth palate.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Bottled. Poured pale, almost milky golden with a short, easily-resuscitated off-white head. The aroma picked up soft bready notes accented by bananas and mild berries.. a warm, dark honey sweetness emerged with warmth. The flavor found the honey and bread again at the core, with lightly toasted earth, lemon zest, and chalky bitterness around.. more lemon sourness than bitterness on the short, grainy finish. Light-bodied and dry on the palate.. felt OK, but never any better. This was alright, but lacked that nice, somewhat bitter, crisp feel I like from my pilseners.

Ibrew2or3 (7055) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2009
Courtesy of markwise. Pours hazy gold with thin off white head. The aroma is tart lemon smelling followed by grains. The taste starts with a quick pulse of tartness and then moving into modest floral to spicy hop notes. It ends with an additional layer of grains and malts. Nice refreshing brew.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2009
courtesy of markwise. godlen pour, white head. Aroma citrus hops. Taste, mostly hoppy with some spices and light bitterness, good carbonation, crisp lively finish. Nothing memorable.

thirdeye11 (5620) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2009
(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours an opaque yellow with nice head and great lacing. Smell is lemony, sour, and refreshing. Taste is sour/bitter dried fruit with a nice carbonation and oily mouthfeel. Getting nice spices in here too.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle pours a golden hazy body with 3 finger white head. Dusty belgian hops hints of coriander and some lemon and citric notes. A hint of honey and floral citrus. Overall decent.
