2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Pours hazy dark orange with a short head that finishes as a thin film. Aroma is bread and caramel malt. A little fruity, but no hops. Medium sweet attack that moves to bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a malty then hoppy, dry finish.
On draught at 26th Oregon Brewers Festival. Very clear light golden color. Sweet biscuit malt aroma. Taste is refreshing light malt with a noticeable grassy hop note. Finishes just this side of bitter, yet still a really good pilsener. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Gold, a little fiery, thin to moderate white frothy head, light carbonation, little lacing.   Dank, wet, musty grassy nose.   Some honey and honeycomb cereal like mealiness.   Mealy maltiness up front,
grassy, pretty musty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Mealy/Cereal like finish.   A little tin like on the backside.   Tiz okay but its not one of the better Bayerns, unfortunately. beernovice39 (3269) - Idaho, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle pours a clear dark golden with a thin white top. Sweet malt scent with straw and bread. Taste is sweet malts, bread, grass and a slight biscuit bitter finish. Probably better when it was fresh. troopie (2439) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Dark yellow pour with thin white head that soon leaves. Faint malt aroma. Malty flavour with a hop edge. Finish tang stays on the middle of the tongue

On tap at Finn & Porter restaurant, Missoula. Pours golden with a modest off-white head and a light floral aroma. There is a creamy pale malt flavor with a raspy dry finish. Lots of flavor. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Definite noble hop aroma but with a stronger generic hop bitterness aroma - magnum? Bread, grain, a little sourdough. Pours golden, thin non lasting white head. Flavors of noble hops, grass, good bitterness bordering on ipa but with an incredibly lighter malt backbone. Bread, grain, light sweetness. Nice lingering bitterness in finish. I liked it.
