4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Upright. FRESH, is the word. Wonderful, pils flavor with great tasting hops and bitterness. Only light bodied, but thatís how a pils is. Christ I like a good pils in the hot weather.
Yeah, mineral is a good descriptor, so is crisp, & thirst quenching.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
10oz sample on tap at Pangaea in Sacramento. The aroma on this is fairly faint with some light mineral and lemon. Not much else at first, but hints of urinal cake present themselves as this breathes a little bit. Moderately hazy yellow body--a very interesting color. Itís borderline neon. There is a nice fizzy white head present. A beautiful beer. Starts with a ton of mineral flavors--too much? Some perfumey flavors follow the minerals in the middle. Finishes with some really herbal, spicy, and aggressive hop bitterness. Refreshing, and a bit different.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Beer Revolution. It pours pale yellow with a small, dense disappearing head. The aroma is honey, grains, earthy/sulfuric hops and lots of straw and hay. The flavor is the same with a firm body and some honey. It has a potent combination of grains, hay, and a bitter noble hop finish. Iím even picking up a hint of brett funk. Good one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dratf. Straw colored beer with a white head. Hay and light summer fruit aroma. Hay and summer fruit flavor wtih light malt and light mineral notes. Medium bodied. Light summer fruit lingers with light hay. Would swear the hop profile isnít all tettnang or hallertau, but could be wrong.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at City Beer. Appears to be a Kellerpils. Pours with a hazy, murky pale yellow body with a small white head that leaves a good ring around the glass after a while. Aromas are bready, grainy, grassy. Hop component is a bit odd (blueberries, mint, earth and fruit). Strange with a bit of a noble hop character. Hay and pils malt. Flavors are dry, bitter, grassy, clean fermentation, lingering bitterness. Lively bubbles, dry and a light fruity hop component. Crisp.

Tap @ Their tasting room... Poured very pale, straw with a bubbly white head. Some great hop flavors, grassy and lemon zest with a cracker malt balance. Floral, crisp yeast tones, clean finish. Great for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Upright. Crystal clear pour with the slightest of white heads. Smells of yeast and grassy hops. Tastes like grassy hops with quite a bit of yeast flavor and some light lemon, decent bit of bread. Not a bad Pils, definitely fit my mood at the time as I was very full of food/beer from Breakside and Deschutes.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had this in July 2010 and forgot to rate it. Colour... hazy goldenrod with a thick head. Nose... eminently hoppy but in a floral sort of way with hints of honeysuckle. Palate... delightfully crisp and fizzy with beeswax, gently hops, lithe and supple floral notes and an ever so slight sweetness on the finish. This was one fabulous beer on the scorching hot day that I drank it, though itíd be fabulous anytime Iím sure!
