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.

On tap at the Sanctuary in Iowa City. The body was hazy dark gold with a white head. The aroma was strong pizza type herbs like oregano and fresh cut wood. The taste has some bread crust with some grapefruit rind. There was a strange bitter finish, kind of like apple core, but not that pleasant.

On tap at the Bittercreek - Pours a nice orangish amber. Aromas of malts, hops. Crisp hop bitterness and dry finish with a nice touch of fruit.

DialSquare (5131) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2011
tap at fermentation lounge - yellow w/ bright white - pungent grain malt aroma, not in a good way, chicken soup vibe - taste is grainy as well - not sure if this is a bad batch, but not for me - not choking down, but close. 5.8/10

Draught at TDR EX: Aroma of hops, malts, and pine. Poured dark yellow (like dark urine) in color with a small white head that disappeared quickly. Very hazy. Flavor was light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, herbs, and vegetables. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Bitter herbal finish.

ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Appearance: Hazy, dull, burnished gold body with a smallish, white head. Smell: Slightly grainy pils aroma completely dominated by a floral, citric hop scent. Hmm. I’m not so sure I like where this is headed. Taste: Grainy pilsner maltiness, nearly absent of any sweetness. Floral, caustically citric pith taste. The hop bitterness goes beyond prominent, beyond aggressive even, to really make for a rather harsh drink. The finish is grainy and displeasingly bitter. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: Excruciating and unpleasant. I dumped the remaining few ounces on the restaurant’s wall and within seconds a ChainGangGuy-sized hole had been eaten through both the dry wall and exterior bricks. This made for a quick getaway, allowing me to quickly flee the premises without paying.

presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
Tap. Big lasting head. Light gold. Strong in your face aroma of perfume, flowers and soap. Flavour is all hops which are overly dominant. Can’t find the malt or beer under the hops.

TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 21, 2008
On tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden with a medium creamy white head that laced. Aroma of pilsner malt, noble hops, lemon, other citrus and bready. Flavor of lemon, biscuit, greatvl fresh hop flavor, pils malt, really nice fresh hop flavor.

unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2006
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.

goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Poured a hazy gold with a thin but long lasting white head and plenty of lacing. Malty aroma was slightly sweet with a touch of earthy and perfume hop. Beer was served a too cold and more aroma came out as it warmed. Flavor of caramel malt with a good amount of hop finish. Medium bodied and dry finish.
