Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Grassy aroma. Bready, grainy, grassy, malty flavor. Medium body. Grainy taste lingers with light malt, light mineral, and light citrus notes. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2008
On tap at the brewhouse. A solid pilsner. Good malt flavors, light hopping. Dry finish. Good, but doesn’t really take any chances either. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - APR 10, 2008

Blonde-bronze. Standard looking for the style with a broken lakes head. Feint hop aroma and crisp light hop and malt flavor. Almost antiseptic tannic, bitter-sour finish. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2008
From June 2007 tasting notes, sampled at Thirsty Bear. Attractive clear golden with a white head. Very faint, barely noticeable nose, a hint of grain and grass. The flavor is much more pronounced than the nose - pleasant light pils malty base, noble hops, lemon zest. Crisp and refreshing. Medium yet smooth/silky texture and proper, lively carbonation. Good beer, just needs some aroma hops.

Dry, saltine cracker aroma. Juicily malty, bright hops, strongly bitter. Lightly husky, but still bright finish. Rather simple, but crisp and to the point. auto (163) - California, USA - SEP 10, 2007

Light Yellowish pour, smell of hops, yeast, and is quite bitter for a pilsener. almost IPA like bitterness. Definitely not one of my favorite pilsners, and I didn’t really care for this much. One of my least favorite of the 9 or so I tried from the Thirsty Bear in SF. Mine had a lingering aftertaste I didn’t care for as well. Ernest (7744) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2007
