(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Slightly hazy golden color with a puffy white head. Aroma is lots of floral and bitter hops with a touch of sweet malt and citrus. Flavor is floral and bitter at the beginning, moving to a sweet and citrus middle, and a rather bitter and clinging hoppy finish. Very nice.

Draught @ Rogue Pub, Portland, OR. Light in palate and faint in aroma. It’s a pilsener wiht an extra hop kick from the west coast hops. Nice job.

Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2007
Draft at the Lighthouse Bar, park slope Brooklyn. Tastes the way you’d expect from the name. well balanced with a haze of swetness, like strawberries then it dumbs a load of fizzing hops on your tongue.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2006
Draught at Barcade, Brooklyn during thier Rogue night. Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is floral and fruity, with tangy hops. Flavour is crisp, with good hop notes, but not overly bitter. Dry, refreshing finish. Simple, but quite good.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2006
On tap @ Saucer. Hazy, strong floral nose. Hops are strong, but w/ min. bitterness. Very taste & crisp. The most hopped out "pilsner" I’ve ever had, good thou.

Tasted on tap at the Rogue Brew house in Eugene. This pilsner pours a medium gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is cereal and grain, slightly sweet. A light to medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity and sweet, touch of orange. Hops are floral and spicy without a lot of bitterness. I was expecting this beer to be an IPA or APA from the name. Stupid me. Nice balance. Crisp and clean. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

I had this beer at Summits, Sandy Springs. Light colored. Nice hop aroma. Crisp, dry flavor. It has a long lasting hop bitterness that stays on the palate.

miketrum (18) - NAUGATUCK, Connecticut, USA - AUG 9, 2006
overall a nice beer. Taste hoppy like an IPA. Aroma is not overally strong. A good rogue ale. Nice aftertaste of noble hops
