Bottle from Sunset Beer (17178 stamped...same as the Northern Pils, so maybe this isn't a bottling date after all, or by chance they bottled both of these the exact same day?). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, honeysuckle flowers), with a light note of minerals. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Much nicer aroma than the Northern Pils, but rather unremarkable in the mouth...very thin and watery and a tad overly attenuated; stark and close to bland. Still pretty good for an American attempt. Supposedly dry-hopped with Citra, Mandarina Bavaria, and Huell Melon, but just smells soft and honeysuckle-ish like something much more traditional (Hallertauer etc.).

12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack purchased at The Davis Co-Op. The aroma has a great deal of floral character present. There is a sweet biscuity-pils maltiness that is also present in the nose. Transparent yellow body with a smallish white head that is quickly dissipating. Starts with a bit of a grassy, floral hoppy bitterness, before biscuits and pils maltiness comes through in the middle. Finishes clean and crisp with some cracker and light grassy hop bitterness. Pretty good slowrunner77 (13912) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Clear golden. Floral and slightly sweet fruity aroma and flavor. Very little in the way of hops it seems...no bitterness, but the sweet floral flavor works as a summer seasonal. BeerandBlues2 (14578) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Draught at BLAH. Pours gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is crackery Pils malt and light earthy hops. Flavor is medium crackery Pils malt, somewhat sweet light earthy hops and bitterness with a crisp and dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

10th Feb 2017: First beer on my first flight at Devilicious, Temecula California. I wanted some thing to cleanse my palate before attacking the stronger and darker brews. Having said that it was a fine beer and a lot more than a ’fill in’ to rinse my mouth out with. Pale gold pour, fading white head. Citrus leanings in both the nose and taste, more hoppy than malty, dry bittering finish: decent. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle at home. It pours a very clear pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma has bready malt with faint notes of pear, honeydew and earthy hops. Weak hop character considering the varieties used here. The flavor has bready malt with nice Pils flavor and spicy/earthy hops in the background. Solid bitterness. There’s some more light pear notes and hints of sweet melanoidens. It’s a touch watery on the palate, though the malt flavor is clean and crisp as expected. Very easy to drink and fairly crushable, though I was hoping for a more interesting hop character. marcus (11149) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 5, 2016
On tap at Cap Tap. Pours blonde with a clinging white head and a floral aroma. There is a light pils flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Refreshing. bhensonb (16380) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods in Davis, CA. Pours very light gold with a white head. Aroma of fruit and citrus. Med minus body. Mild pale malt, light noble hop, and I still think a bit of fruit and citrus. Finishes with a mild spicy bitterness. Nothing overly strong here, but the flavors are good and work well together.
