Draft in Honolulu. Something slighty un-pilsnery about this one, but still quite good. Great full-bodied fruity start gives way to a whiff of chemicals and a surprisingly smoky aftertaste (which was good!)
On tap at Gordon Biersch SFO. Pours a pale straw color with a bit of head. Mild hops. Easy drinking.

On tap at the Giants game in SF. Medium gold with a decent white head. Clean pale malts, low sweetness and bitterness with a kiss of citrus. Not bad. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2017
At Bolingbrook location. Not as complex and softly mellow as real ones, but not a insipid lame copy either. It’s just fine. Serving: Tap Luneylane (265) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAR 9, 2017

tightslice (1526) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle from Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is a few leaves soaked in water. Taste is light twigs and a few bits of grass floating in hose water. Not offensive. Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Clear, light golden beer, good carbonation, nice smell good grain and mineral. Lots of grainy flavour, sparkling and dry, nice. Marheb (6334) - MontrÃ©al, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2017 (En fût à Gordon Biersch Mission Valley San Diego): Des instances fromagées et très vertes se bousculent dans un liquide assez protéiné et moelleux. Quelque dérange, une sorte de reflet mentholé gingembresque qui me distrait de ce que le reste essaie de faire. 3.3 (Nouvelle batch janvier 2017): Plus ronde, des malts enracinés plus profondément et une verdure plus prononcée que l’aspect phénolique. Pas mal plus brillant. 3.8 JohnRMurdoch (5148) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Tap @ Gordon Biersch, Taipei. Yellow orange, reasonable head. Resin grain aroma. Vegetable malt flavour. Metallic aftertaste. Not a good beer. asheft (3125) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2016
[on tap at Gordon Biersch, DTW airport]
Fairly weak aroma of sweet pilsner malt and low zesty, Czech, noble hops. Less cracker and fermentation character compared to the Golden Export. Bight gold under lacy, white wisps. Flavour begins with balanced crackery malt and hops bitterness and then becomes pungent noble hops, and then the bitterness really holds on into the crisp finish. The bitterness together with the carbonic bite, are a little unpleasant. Light body, medium carbonation.
