Tap. Pours clear golden light amber with a very small diminishing white head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is grain, bread and grass. Flavor is same, very light sweetness and a light bitter finish. Meh.

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced excellent lacing. Good moderate to heavy complex hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer and one of the best of style I have had.

Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a two finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy, floral hop aroma with resinous pine notes followed by light fruit and a pale malt backbone. Slightly spicy hop presence with straw and straw as well as some apple, bread and biscuit.
Medium bodied with a spicy hop bite up front that’s countered by light fruit sweetness, bready yeast and pale malts. Sweeter than expected with a slight metallic presence and a surprising boozy flavor. Some earthy bitterness but it’s cut mid palate by sweet fruit, biscuit, pilsnef malt and alcohol. Starts off okay but there’s a really unpleasant flavor lingering in the finish that I can’t quite put my finger on. michcam8 (585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Malt pilsner aroma with some hops. Clear yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Not much lacing left on the glass. Smooth pilsner, with some hop flavor and a light sweet malt taste on the palate. Sessionable beer with not much detection in alcohol. A very nice take on the pilsner...I would highly recommend to others if seeking this style. douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2012

Pours clear and golden with a white head. Aroma is intense grass and pilsner malt. Taste follows aroma with just the right amount of bitterness. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2012

Aroma crisp with citrus hop , clean refreshing nose. Lacking alcohol side considering name. 7+
Appearance true golden look with large white snowy cap. Good appearance with neat lace on glass.
Flavor and Palate : Soft textured , golden malts. Slight mineral hints , slight note of alcohol. Bit dry on top end. Lacking some depth malt wise. Good not great. Not very Imperial either.
Pours a clear bright golden color with a substantial white head to top it off. Sweet flowery aroma. Clean crisp taste of sweet pale malt and a butteriness which balances really well with the mild hop bitterness and essence of grapefruit. A damned good pilsener all around!
