On tap at the brewpub. Light gold in color with a white head. Grainy aroma with a mild floral hop backbone. Nice pils bitterness to the flavor. A very solid pilsner. Good and long-lasting hop bitterness. Pronounced tettnanger hop flavor.

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Clear golden pour with a finger of white head. Sweet and grainy nose, but some decent malt aroma of bread and dough. Light floral and spicy hops, yeast, and a touch of grass. The flavor is a bit simple and sweet. Quite grainy. As with the nose, some malt flavor and body. Very lightly hopped with just a light floral quality. No real bitterness, some mild apple esters, and a little grass on the finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3708) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 12, 2006
.3L on tap at the brewpub. Crisp, grassy, vegetal-like nose with a mild doughiness present. Fair enough. Transparent blonde color with a large, frothy, whitish head and lots of lacing. Crisp, slightly spicy and grassy hoppiness to start. Middle has an interesting astringency to it with a bit of breadiness. Mild spiced hops make their presence again in the finish. A nice and refreshing beer.

BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 18, 2011
On tap. Pours with a clear yellow body and a quick to fade white head. Aromas of grain, grass, lemon and pilsner malt (it seems). Flavors are bready, cornbread, pilsner malt, grassy, light lemon and a touch of salinity. Dry and light. Medium carbonation. Good but bland. No noticeable mistakes, but it isn’t memorable nor assertive.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and citrus. Taste is malt, corn, lemon, and grass. Pretty good.
