Sampler at the brewpub. This was delicious, muddled, muted golden body. Aroma snaps with noble hops, herbally, fresh and green. Clean crisp with bread behind that. Great crisp body with a perfect above average carbonation to go along with the prickly hops. Flavor is similar to the aroma, with a great bitter kick. Finishes super easy. The wine server at the Three Saints winery tasting room told me she thought this beer was too bitter, so now you know. If I could get this fresh in a bottle, I would drink it all summer long. dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Sample at the Hermann, MO beer fest. Poured a cloudy orange color with a good two finger head on it. Aroma was citrus, metallic, orange peel, and grass. Flavor was toasty, citrus and grass. Clean and crisp. Not a whole lot to this beer, but still better than average. cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Bottle @ home, courtesy of gooovikings. Light yellow, clear appearance with lively carbonation and a foamy white head. Slightly grainy but really just a clear pilsner aroma with mild Noble hops. Mild to medium Noble hop bitterness, a weird sweet pilsner malty flavor. Kind of a metallic off taste with a dry finish. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. They stated that this was more hoppy than the Skyscraper. A deep amber colored body. Oranges and bread crust came out of the smelling. I tasted oranges with some bread crust. There was also a little bit of soap in the finish. Decent, but not as well balanced as Skyscraper. Strykzone (7363) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2010
12 oz. bottle bought at the brewery. Vigorously poured into a 1 liter dimpled mug brought a nice frothy almost white head that lasted nicely. A golden and clear beer. Aroma of yeast, fruit, malt, hops, and honey. Quite a nice flavor. Some spice, nice malt, frisky hops, citrus fruit, grapefruit, and mild earthy bitterness. Tasty and refreshing.

Draft at the brewery. A very respectable pilsener. Light, crisp and extremely flavorful with that fresh pils taste that is so rare in my experience to find and a nice crisp hop presence and finish. Although not a big beer by any stretch, this beer really tasted good, and it is one of my favorite finds at breweries when it is fresh. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2009
12oz bottle. Clear golden yellow. Tall fizzy head. Aroma of skunky hop. Nice Euro presence. Bready malt. Flavor of Pils malts, with a nice saaz bite. Very well balanced. Characteristic to style. Well done. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2009

Source: Ticker Tasting
Appearance: clear gold, wispy white head, drippy streaks of lace
Aroma: sweet cereal aroma, nice light flavor hops, hint of spicyness
Flavor: sweet cereal flavor, nice balancing hops and bitterness, light spicy hop character, light bitter finish
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 10/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow body with a bubbly, though somewhat sparse, white head.
Smell: Faintly sweetish pils malt nose with some mild floral hop notes.
Taste: Light pale malts, slightly grainy, and with a light sweetness. Tiny hint of lemon. Floral hop character with a mild bitterness. Finishes dry with a small bit of lingering hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A fine pilsener to combat the Missouri heat (provided Missouri even gets much heat). Though, if you’re in a bind as to reach for this or the Skyscraper, I’ll lend my recommendation to the latter. SSSteve (4006) - - MAR 15, 2009
