A 28IBU "Pre-Prohibition" Pilsner. Hazy golden colour with a great thick head. Maritimey malts, lots of spicy saaz on the nose. Crisp and hoppy. Slightly grainy. Finishes with a lingering herbal, saazy bitterness. Fresh and clean. 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Lost of flavor- crisp fruit and earth notes. Somewhat sweet with a nice hop flavor. A little too heavy to be refreshing but overall a decent drink. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Draft at the 74th St. Pours bright golden with random rising fields of carb and a big white sudsy head. Great looking stuff. Big grass on the nose followed by a palate that’s grassy, oaty, lightly malt-sweet and just slightly herbal-bitter hoppy near the end. Nice low-medium body and carb. Refreshing summer beer, even if it’s not exceptionally complex or adventurous. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottled. The body was hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma was bread with oranges and some grass. The taste was bitter with some spicy green peppers and a bit of grass. There was also a hint of herbs in the finish. Decent. OldMrCrow (2446) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2006

Pours clear and golden with a nice big head. The aroma is lemon grass.
The flavor is surprisingly fruity if one were expecting a pilsner; somewhat sweeter, accented with lemon peel and plenty of malt.
Interesting to try these sorts of things, but I’d rather drink a good pils.
Clear golden color with normal head. Tastes liike a heavier pilsner....or a bit like a light pale. Nice light fruit and malt. Very tasty beer...great for a hot summer Houston night. glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Very clear golden with medium head. Bit of a crisp spicy aroma. A fairly tasty pils that may have hit the style they were looking for dead on. Nice refreshing beer that would be tasty on a hot day. DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 29, 2005
(22 oz bottle: $3.39 at Bottleworks in Seattle, WA) This light golden and fully hazy brew poured with hundreds of large, subsurface bubbles clinging to the glass. Within a few minutes, they all lost their grip of the glass and joined their heady brethren atop the beer. However, the creamy, white head maintains a thin but complete layer for the session. It tastes moderately bitter and certainly hoppy enough to be in nice balance with the moderately flavorful pale malts. But this doesn’t taste like a pilsener, which with the ale yeast, I guess it’s not supposed to, but instead, it tastes more like a light bodied and fairly snappy pale ale. It’s a bit fruity and sweet, lacking the clean, dry palate of a classic pilsener, and that’s okay because it doesn’t claim to be a classic pilsener. In contrast, the aroma is dry and grainy, with a little bit o’ stinky feet. The more I drink of this, the more I think gently malty "pale ale". It’s tasty and enjoyable, but not enough to make me crave another bottle. BeerLimey (2155) - California, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Clouded yellowy amber appearance. Malty, citrus fruit aroma. Mild palate, lightly malty with plenty of hop citrus bite. drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2005
A fan favorite at the Bellingham April Brew’s Day. This alt beer is light and fluffy with fluttering of hops and a honey base. There are definite summer characteristics here that make it an excellent seasonal: fresh wheat, dry hay, and a subtlety that makes for very easy drinking. Very nice, and definitely a crowd pleaser.
