Travlr (24667) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Very pale yellow color. Light grass aroma. Taste of wet grass. Plain.

mcberko (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
Sampled on tap at SIB, pours somewhat hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of light pilsner-hops, wheat, hay and cereal. Flavour of refreshing hops, with a nice bitter pilsner-like bite on the finish. Decent pilsner.

Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2005
Draught, Archer Ale House, Bellingham

Hazy amber colour. Soapy, hoppy aroma with subtle fruits (apple, pear, berry). Crisp hoppiness and toasty maltiness hit up against other in fairly even balance. Off-dry finish. The carbonation is a little bit much and it gets in the way at times.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 29, 2006

Drake (13728) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, on 5/29/11. Pours a clear lemon yellow color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of grainy malts, grass hops and a bit of corn. The taste is grassy hops, apples, caramel and lightly toasted malts. Medium bodied. Meh.

hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2005
On tap at the Drafting Room (Spring House) as part of the “John’s Locker Stock” series. Poured a medium and lightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grass, flowers and light citrus. First sip led to a nice bitter bite that subsided as the more I drank leading into a malt/hop balance. Decent tasting pilsners (although pilsners are not one of my favorite styles).

deyholla (11600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2011
On tap at flying saucer Houston. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a nice light pine and grass note backed by crisp lager yeast and hay. Flavor starts floral hop note with a bit of backing bread and a bitter finish driven by pine notes.

DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Draft at MacGregor Draft House, Cary, NC. I pegged it as a Rye PA or similar. As a pils, it is certainly one of the darkest in color, haziest, and hoppiest. It tasted like a spicy, hoppy, pale ale to me, with great complexity and good balance.

sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2008
Light golden pour, on tap. Light carbonation, hoppy but not the hoppiest around, leaves a little biter aftertaste. A good pilsner witht he extra hop.
