On tap at Bock Fest. Clear medium-light gold pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is very similar to their Helles Bock. Sweet caramel malts are the base, but there is a nice floral hop profile. Flavor is well balanced. There is a definite hoppiness to it that keeps it from becoming too sweet. I wouldnt say the body was watery, but it was a little thinner than I expected. Not bad, really. I got this confused with the Helles Bock, but I ended up liking this one a lot more.

trans gold, thinnest white ring that goes tepid. Lightly Bitter grain nose, grass, lightly sugary dough, hints of tea leaf. Grass, grainy bitterness in flavor, lasting sharp wheat through the lightly carbonated but effervescent finish.

Pours a clear pale yellow, small white head, quite viscous... Limited aroma, a little bready... Flavor is a touch sweet, a very small touch of grassy hops, biscuity malt... medium thin body, a little too sweet....

Draught at the Phoenixville location. Golden with no real head. Malty with some earty hops in the aroma. Flavor is much the same as the aroma. Fairly crisp and light overall. A decent brew.

alobar (3918) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Pale yellow color with a grassy nose. Crisp, light with hops and pils on the palate. Very drinkable for the style, but uninspiring overall.

tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2010
The aroma is malty, some adjuncts like corn. The appearance is a clear gold, small white head. The flavor is malty, some toasted malts, some grass. The finish is purely a noble hop bittering. OK.

Draft at the brewpub. Very clear and light, fresh wet hay nose. Super-clean and crisp, light but firm maltiness, subtle finishing earthy hops. Good not great.

PilsnerPeter (3050) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Tap at Barcade: Pale clear golden pour with almost a greenish hue (weird) and a white film of head. Clean aroma- some crackery light pale malts with a touch of diacetyl that fades with a few swirls. Some mild grassy hop notes as well. Light body with diacetyl in the flavor as well- despite that it’s fairly dry and clean. Some biscuity malts and mild noble hop peppery notes. Not bad, sessionable- though slightly macro feeling.

On tap at the Beechtree. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. Light grain and sweet caramel and honey aromas. A touch sweet and a little metallic. Crisp finish with some faint biscuit tones.

2.5

tap, pours pale gold, no head. Light malt aroma. Clean light malt flavor with next to nothing in the finish. Boring
