Tap at HDG. Pale golden beer with a thin white head. Light graininess and a fairly assertive floral hop aroma. Light grassiness over a light pils malt base. Flavour is light and fairly floral as well. Little in the way of maltiness save a light crackery note. Light bitterness, but overall, it’s not a bad pils at all. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2007
On tap at HDG. Grassy sour aroma. Buttery notes. Malty grainy fruity flavor. Sour notes. Buttery. Not like a regular clean tasting pils. Ok. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2007 Draught at HDG. Aroma and flavors of of light cereal, grass and lemon hops, though these are kind of muscled out by a funky butter essence. Pretty sturdy body for a lager. Really, really good potential in this one but for that apparent flaw, which hopefully is just an anomaly. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Tap at Hop Devil. Pale with no head. Kind of odd, weak, slightly buttery aroma. Vegetal. Taste wasn’t bad, kind of chewy and slightly hoppy, a little earthy. Close to sessionable, but not quite. Ratman197 (15448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2007
On tap @ Oskar Blues poured a clear yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of straw, light earthiness and a hint of citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, bread and a hint of citrus with a smooth moderatly bitter finish.

Draught at Old Chicago, Boulder. 2.8.7.Beer is clear, light, bright, yellow with a small, frothy-creamy, white, diminishing head. The carbo trails to the surface in slow, big, lazy scattered bubbles that remind me of white spots on a red apple.<P> BeerandBlues2 (13869) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 22, 2007
The aroma is great. Simple, clean. Malty with a light note of toasted grain; Hoppy with moderate notes of resin/pine, apricot, light note of grass; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Trace miscellaneous notes of bubble gum and a light note of banana/clove that peeks out as the brew warms.<P>
The flavor is moderately-to-heavily bitter, moderately sweet, lightly acidic with a long, moderately bitter, lightly sweet finish. A touch of huskiness in the retros.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy and oh-so pleasing.<P>
Loved it. Want more.
Draught at brewery. Pours sparkling yellow with a small frothy white head, somewhat diminishing, fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, meal), average hops (grass), average yeast (sweat) with notes of banana and cooked vegetables. Light bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation and a chalky finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness; Dale has done a fine job with this pilsener. Ernest (7860) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2007
