Pour is a bright gold with a soft white head. Aroma has a decent amount of hops coming off it with some nice bready malts. Flavor is all about the pils malt. Very dry and bready. Finish leaves a flavor like oyster crackers on the tounge as this goes down. Some of these Sam Adams one offs are kinda meh but i thought this was a decent pils and i would buy this if i saw it in a six pack. djd07 (15293) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear orange golden with a small frothy white head that diminishes rather quickly leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a floral hops with citrus. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop flavor with honey and citrus with a nice crisp finish. Easy to drink, a good Pils from BBC. Finhead (1783) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2010
A clear, pale yellow pour with white head. The nose is citrusy and grassy. The taste is well balanced with a slightly sweet opening and lightly bitter end. It has a light body and smooth finish. topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2010

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2010 Draft, decent all around pils with a noticeable hop aroma. Decent looking and tasting. Decent palate. Good pils from sam. WVHouseofBeer (1073) - West Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Pours a bright amber color with very little head. Floral fruity aroma. Citrus flavors along with some honey. Mouthfeel wasn’t as crisp as I like in a pilsener but this is a pretty good beer. nuplastikk (6373) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 12oz bottle. Filtered orange-yellow. Big fluffy head that fades out into a thin soapy layer after a minute or so. Fresh brewery aroma, doughy with some fresh earthy hops. On the heavier side of light bodied, with some nice doughy character. The SA house yeast, the honeymalt, or whatever kind of shines too heavily, giving it a some fruity ale qualities, taking away some of the crispness that the style generally has. Still an enjoyable beer. Fresh and easy. alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Draft @ local chain restaurant. Nose is clean, slight biscuit and citrus, though not really very ’aromatic’ at all. Flavor is light bready sweetness, with a closing slightly citric hop bitterness. Crisp, clean finish. Well-melded flavors throughout of slight malty sweetness and the lightly fruity hoppiness, though all the flavors could do with a little more ’zing’. Highly drinkable. Quite impressive and thirst quenching brew. gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - JAN 10, 2010
UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 Pours a clear bold yellow. Nose is crisp malt, mild citrus, noble and floral hops all melded with a sharp lemon and hints of yeast and fresh grains. Flavor is a biting hop bitterness, crisp clean malt, floral notes, lots of lemon, lemongrass, hints of clove and mild spice. I am a big fan of this beer. This should be made all year round. Finishes clean, crisp, slight lingering hop bitterness. Very well done beer.
