3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured very light yellow with a thick white head. Pretty good retention. Aroma was grassy with citrus and lemon. The taste reminded me more of a lager but it was very nice. The citrus was a bit overdone on the palate for a Pilsner. Good Americanized German Pilsner.

Nice crisp smooth ale that works great during a warm summer night. Clean and sharp taste with a smooth firm finish. Very drinkable and flavorful.

Very nice beer. Immediately noticed the floral, citrusy, hefe qualities of this beer. The appearance was a creamy orange with a long-lasting head. Definite malt qualities. Off the beaten path hop flavor. I love it. Very crisp, very refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Perfumey, floral and lightly spicy aroma. Clear, vary pale gold with shy white head that recedes to partial cover and ring. Floral, meaty, grainy malt flavour with some buttery diacetyl. Medium-light body is somewhat oily with low carbonation. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blonde pale et translucide, mousse blanche mi-abondante et plutôt diminuante. Aromes très herbals, fleurs des champs, citrons, houblon vert, grains ainsi qu’une touche épicée venant du houblon. Toujours très herbal en bouche, gazon vert passant au jaune sur un beau fond de malt. Faible niveau de carbonatation, légèrement piquante en bouche, pourrait être plus élevé. Une Pils originale et pleine de goût. Échantillon, mondial de la bière, Juin 2005.

Nice, fresh sweet fruity spicy, all blended into one beer. I think this one is perfect for a warm day. Not sure if it would be good to sip and allow to warm, but still very enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the Mondial, from 12 oz bottle. Very clear, pale yellow-green, with a lasting dollop of tiny foam...lemon-butterscotch (diacetyl? yes) nose isn’t overwhelming bad, just boring...fairly crisp, sweet honey-touched, with a lively mouthfeel, but the malt isn’t full enough and the grassy character is lacking. Wow, I’m the lowball on this one...but I gotta call it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear lightly carbonated golden. Gentle cover of white foam lasts on top of the beer. Highly floral hops hugs bright grainy, toasty malt. Faint diacetyl notes are a good match to the tea-like herbal undertones, reminiscent of dandelions and lemon. Grassy, floral and citrusy palate. Cuts short with a firm bite of bitterness that refreshes the palate a lot. Intense dry lemon character. Smooth palate, but perhaps a touch too little carbonation. Medium bodied. Good.
