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, Bellinghamargo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 29, 2006
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.

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. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

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.
