reebtogi (5840) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
500mL bottle poured straw color with average white head settling quickly to spotted lacing. Aromas of bread and hay and a hint of yeast. Taste is lightly sweet with an undesirable hoppy finish. Carbonation and body are decent. Overall, something to drink on a hot summer day, as it goes down pretty easy.

crossovert (11608) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with tons of carbonations bubbles and a large white, but not tightly-foamed head. The head has decent retention actually and leaves some decent lacing. The smell is ultra-mellow with mostly bready malt and a pinch of grassy, cirtusy hops. The taste is decently balanced for a pils, there is an overlying bitterness over the bready malt. The flavor seems to lean a bit towards the euro pale lager, but this is still a good light lager. THis brewery does much better for sure, but this isnt bad.

coldbrewky (1721) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2010
.5L bottle: Pouts a hazy tan with a thin sickly looking head (AKA this beer is not gold in color). It does not impress in the tall glass. Lacing is concentrated ins small quaff clusters on the opposite side of glass from consumption. Other than that it is sparse. Nose is moderatly weak, with wet grass. Body ion the whole is medium and fairly refreshing on a hot day. It does not stand out in any which way. Rice gets in the way.

EithCubes (5649) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle. Soft pale malt nose with soft grassy hops, light mineral water character. Pours a pale golden with a soapy white head. Taste is bone dry and aggressive, lightly metallic and minerally, dirt, stones, grass, salt, significant hop bite though not the taste of hop oils. Medium body is a bit harsh with the carbonation, but dry and cleansing, a little softness behind it all. Just a touch of grain. I award an additional tenth [point] based on potential merit - this would be a nice change of pace with food, cleansing the palate, bringing a different texture; but it seems a bit off when all alone.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2010
bottle from tops shared on 2/7/2010. pale straw honey colored with a small off white head. rough pils-ish grainy aroma mixes with honey comb, mud, a bit of nuttiness and dust. add some lemon and mineral/slate to the aroma to make up the flavor... it finishes with a harsh mineral note which lingers with grain in the aftertaste. the body is medium and crisp but somehow has a muddy/swampy mouth feel which really distracts me. 6/3/5/2/12/2.8

scottw86 (1167) - Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2010
Poured a very pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is sweet with some lemon. Some yeast as well, but a little skunky. Rice is noticeable. Taste is slightly bitter and grassy with some rice and yeast. Aftertaste is not great. Overall it is ok, but you let me down belgium!

Its probably just me but when I see a pale lager thats made and Belgium and called Tikka, I just have to try it. We have here a slightly hazed orange golden brew w// a diminishing head of mixed bubbles that leaves behind lace in big sheets. The nose is mildy fruity and floral, maybe a tuti-fruiti bubblegum sort of thing. Dry w/ a grapefruit rind bitterness up front complimented by a twinge of acidity. Vigorous carbonation. There is a strange earthy bitterness in the finish which is my only real complaint. Whats really strangest about this beer is that given its called a Pilsner on the label and it tastes like it does, I have to conclude its been infected. It seems though that the infection was by some Belgian yeast strain and its none the worse for wear and for all I know more flavorful and better.

daknole (10893) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Yellow pour, white head. Lightly malty aroma with some honey and very faint hops. Flavor is malty and has a distinct honeycomb flavor. Not great, but drinkable.
