Grassy hop aroma typical of pilseners. Amber gold color with a white head that stays for awhile. Thin to medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Light malt, not quite caramel. Some bitter. The finish is at least bitter. Dry, almost astringement. Drinkable. Tmoney99 (15213) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2007
Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Poured clear amber with a moderate frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate grassy hop aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium grassy hoppy flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Average drinkable beer.

12 oz. bottle from Trader Joes in Glen Allen, VA. Pours orange with a very slight haze. One finger head gives way quickly. Aroma is very grassy with a bit of skunk. Taste is grass, grain, skunk and a bitter finish that does not live up to the name. As esjaygee says, yes, this this is very astringent.... almost hot. What were they thinking here? argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 14, 2007
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear apple juice body topped by small white head. Aroma is medium sweet, apple, honey, some grain. Taste is medium sweet, spicy/grassy, some apple, light dusky. Light-medium body, some crispness. If the aroma were better, I’d really enjoy this one. slowrunner77 (13368) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 3, 2014
still a little lighter and more one dimensional than i’d prefer, but the Hallertaus are evident, and i like that at least a little. i may even return to this one."

Clear yellow gold with a mediocre white bubbly head. No lace. Equal parts brewer’s cereal and reedy, stemmy aroma. Grainy palate with a grassy, stemmy vegetal hop quality. Crisp dry finish. Not a bad representation of the style I guess, but not outstanding either. bb (9890) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Bottle. Golden beer with a cream colored head. Slight spice and floral aroma. Slight bitterness with some spicy/floral flavor with a bit of malt backing. Finishes dry with some light mineral tones that linger. Medium body. Easy drinking. 3fourths (9377) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2008
12oz bottle. Glear gold, white head. Sticky honey malt nose with some light corn and fuesal notes. Light sweetness of front of corn and sugared grains, somewhat sticky and oily. Lacks definite crispness, sits flabby on the tongue, and develops a flavor of olive oil and corn. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short cap of white head and some rising carbonation. The aroma picked up sweet bready notes accented by lemon zest and greener, floral hoppage.. hints of smoke if you really stick your nose in there. The flavor had the same bready notes supporting the aforementioned lemon zesty bitterness.. some caramel and some tangy light fruity bitterness in there too.. finished a bit sharp with more bitterness than sweets. Lighter-bodied and fairly aggressive on the palate (bit too much so for the style).. dried out at the end and left a lengthy impression. Decent. vyvvy (6943) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Pours golden with a fluffy off-white head. The aroma has pils malt, spicy hops and fresh cut grass. Medium body with lots of prickly carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth pale malt, some dirty hop taste and hints of of diacetyl. The finish is grassy, grainy and spicy - crisp, dry and lightly biting. Very nice pils for the price ($5.49 / six pack @ Trader Joes). A nice hot weather beer.
