Draft pour pint at the Tangletown location. Pours a bright fizzy gold color with a patchy head. Floral like aroma. Flavor has some floral hop flavor, along with some ripe banana, sweet fruit, and a little bready toward the finish. Quite refreshing. Flavorful lager. Not bad.

Poured as part of a flight. No head or lacing to speak of. Nice amber color, floral hops on the nose a bit of caramel mid-taste and a little citrus on the finish. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Sweet toasty and appley. A little earthy. Mostly sweet in the nose. Pours golden amber, thin head and lace. The flavor is appley up front with some toast and sweet sugars. Definitely leaning towards the sweet side. Not really my favorite example. yespr (47077) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
From tap at the Pike brewpub. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light toasted malty and light caramelish. Bitter and simple toasty. Dry and bitter finish. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2010

slightly dark gold in color with minimal head, this was a rather plain beer with not much outstanding. truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2008
On tap at the Pine St. pub. Clear brassy color. No head to speak of. Very clean, crisp pilsener character, with a slightly sharper hop bite than most. Really went well with lunch. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Draft at Elysian Fields. Sweet. I finally get to flip out about a beer that turns out to have a much lower average than what I’m giving it. This beer rocked tonight--definitely tasted very fresh, FWIW. Coppery light amber with a thin but very persistent and moussy light tan head. Thick sheets of lace; they leave little sedimentary rings after each sip. Light bready and yeasty nose. Smells a bit starchy, not unlike boiled white rice. Definitely a bit floral in there as well. Rich, tingly attack, lots of corduroy-soft body. Light, crisp, and drinkable for having such an assertively-bodied attack. Grassy and somewhat floral mid-palate. Clean finish. Awesome.

(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on October 17, 2007. Light amber body with a near headless top. Nose is very citrus and grassy. Increadibly flavourful and bitter. States "more malt" but this is pleasently over-hopped. Finish is mildly malted with a bitter touch. Good. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2007
on tap-pours a thin white head that laces and yellow color. Aroma is gain, lemon. Taste is bitter-lemon/grassy hops, secondary grain. Lots of grassy/spicy bitterness. OK/mild carbonation.
