Had this beer as part of Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 28. Pour was clear yellow. White lasting head. Aroma is malty and mild. Flavor was simple. some malts like a pils.

On tap at Brewpub. Straw yellow color with a tall soapy white head. Floral and grain aroma with a sweet malt flavor and a floral hop finish. Not bad for the style.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of light fruits, cereally malts. Flavor is grainy with light fruits. Your standard pilsener, not very exciting. It is one of the better pilseners sure, but nothing about it particularly grabbed me. 6/4/7/3/13 [3.3/5]

On tap at the brewpub on November 4, 2010. Pours a light yellow color with a two-finger white head. Head is a bit creamy and lasts around for a pretty good amount of time. Good bit of lacing on the edges of the glass. The nose is really, really quite faint. First beer of the session and I really had a lot of trouble picking out anything from the nose. The taste is a different story as a really nice bouquet of grassy and Noble hops show up. A bit of spice, earth, and herbal qualities come through. Lightly floral. Just a really nice hop presence in addition to some light grain and bread in the background. Really nice carbonation level and body; this ended up being a really nice beer. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

Light golden pour white head. What i thought as a nice light bodied full flavored pilsner at the time is actually a golden ale. Hopped nicely, crisp flavored brew, could drink it all day.

Stupid good, reminds me of prima. Pours a golden body with a white head. Very soft cereal malts, so light they hardly play a role. A soft clean drinking lightly hopped ale with note of earth, floral citrus tones. A very solid session ale, beautiful.

On tap at the Alchemist on my way to Hill Farmstead for BWBDV. Pours a hazy light yellow with a medium sized white head. Soft wheat, light crisp hops and grain. Medium bodied, wheat and crisp grain. Nice crisp grainy finish.
