Moderately clear light gold. Zippo head with the thinnest white edge tracings. Light carbonation stemming from the center of the glass. Pale/pils malt aroma with light herbal and citric peel hops. Medium-full body, light crispness. Toasty malts and light herby hop bitterness. Nice bitter finish and aftertaste. Very full for a pils, which is great. Easy drinking. Light sweetness. Finishes clean and well balanced. Definite Pacific coast twist on the pils theme. If this looked better it’d be a winner. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2002
Very macro-German-pils-like. Very carbonated looking and grainy/farmy nose. Super crispy taste that ends with a dry hoppy bitterness. Very good. BillKismet (4060) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2002
This tan colored lager is rather bland overall, but is better than many macro selections. It has a seemingly feint--hint of honey in the aroma, a sweet, corn-like flavor and the american standard mouthfeel--with a bit of a sour finish. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2002
Champagne color; Average head; Heavy Saaz aroma. Very dry palate. Lots of Hallertau and Saaz. Easily the best American Pilsner that I have tasted. Very close to a European Pils. joet (2606) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2001
Near noseless. Less effervescent, sweet dry silky smooth, roasty light body.
