Clear yellow/bronze, large puffy head with some lacing & moderate carbonation. The aroma has barely anything in it with a little crisp hops. The flavor is lightly malty with 2-row, not pilsner malts. Fruity like an ale with a lagerish mouthfeel. Good example of the style but a little subdued. Lots of grapefruityness.

TimE (5373) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 9, 2004
Tastes more like an American wheat, but with a more hopped finish. European hops are noticable, but not full bodied enough.

CapFlu (5103) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on October 17, 2007. Pours a thin white hea and a clear golden body. Nose of light Saaz hops and a bready malt. Flavour is nicely balanced and very fresh. I like the thickness of the palate with a mild bitterness in the finish. I thought this was pretty good.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Tap at BT> Pours a slight protien chill haze, with a very thin white head and very slight lacing- carbonation must have been tuned down too much. Aroma is nice at first- earthy saaz like hops, with nice nutty and bready pils malts- diacetyl is slight and comes out as it warms. Flavor is bready and toasty with tons of hops- but is almost too bitter and becomes a bit astringent. Finish is relatively clean and smooth- easy to drink despite its harsh bitterness.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught at WA Brewers Festival, 2014. Pours a hazy dark golden color. Nose is filled with corn and grains, and seems relatively unremarkable for me. Taste seems exactly like every other lager, and was wholly unremarkable. Just not my thing.

IndianaRed (4024) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Bottle Pours a crystal clear, very light pale gold color witha very large fluffy white head and substantial lacing. Aroma is a pleasant, slightly sweet grain, bready honey smell. Flavor is crisp, bready with some maltiness, and a not very strong hops slant. Nicely balanced. Fel is light and quick, and the trailer is a slight hoppy bite. Easy going down. Not bad, for a pils.

theisti (3984) - Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Shaker pint draft at Wild Ginger in Seattle, Washington. Pour is deep golden, almost orangish. Small white head. Aroma of fruit and straw hops, followed by grainy maltiness. Nice fresh nose. Taste has a nice grainy maltiness, with the floral, apple fruit and straw hoppiness. Palate is thin to medium, crisp and clean. Nice Pils.

BillKismet (3919) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2002
Fuller in appearance than most pilseners--tangerine in color and well carbonated. The aroma is rather skunky, though after some time, spicing is more detectable. This is a moderately complex pilsner with some piny/hoppy components. Fairly smooth with some positive qualities, but the smell detracts from the experience.
