SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden clear color with a small white head. Lots of bubbles race towards the head. Nose is straw and hay, some yeasty bready notes. Palate is thin, effervescent. Flavors of straw and light malt notes. finish is clean.

hayduke (3474) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle that was bottled in March 2009 this poured a hazy yellow with a small white head and remarkably heavy lacing in the glass. Nose of caramel malts and grassy hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is pretty standard pilsner and the finish is slightly bitter. Not bad. I wish more brewers put bottling dates on the bottles.

thornecb (4546) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving no lacing to skim surface. Sour malt and skunk aromas. Soft with skunky sour hops.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Beer bubbled out of the bottle, yet when poured, it creates a frizzy, quickly dying head. The color is pale yellow or watery straw. The liquid is clear. Surprisingly, there is nice, but slippery lace. Slight skunk to the otherwise mild aroma. Slightly earthy, faint smell of wet leaves. The skunk shows up in the taste as well. There’s a mild hop that saves this beer from a completely deplorable rating. Highly carbonated and a thin body makes this feel closer to a spritzer. It’s drinkable in a pinch.

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Medium gold body with fast bubbles in a tall lager glass. The dense head was white and stuck around for a while. The aroma was doughy biscuit with some grass hints. I could not smell much else in the beer. Sweet tastes dominate, like pear with some hay in the clean finish. There was too much carbonation for my taste. I would like it to be more dry with some stronger floral hops. The hops in it are there, but play back fiddle to the sweet.

BelgianBeerGal (3247) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottled. Pours a clear yellow colour with big carbonation. Small, fluffy white head and some foamy lacing. Not a big aroma at all. Flavour is typical pilsner but also a little spice and some flat bitterness in the finish. Decent.

nearbeer (3849) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2008
12 oz, bottled May 7, 2008. Clear and effervescent, pale gold. Huge meringue cap endures well and leaves crunchy lace behind. Aroma of lemongrass and spicy honey. Flavor is similar, plus the addition of husky grain and a hint of cinnamon. Light-medium body is smooth, with a small hop tingle and a dryish finish. One of the better American examples of the style.

Funknmilla (726) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2008
12 oz bottle shared with NJDevilz69..Pale straw with an off white head....tastes like a miller light with less carbonation

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle courtesy of beachbum25. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of pilsner malt, some fruit. Tastes of sweet malt, some spice, touches of bitterness. Enjoyable.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Found this one bottled at a grocery store in Syracuse, Utah. Light yellow pour with a thin white head, malty but dry nose, flavor is typically grassy and hoppy but nothing special. Meh.
