Hand bottle from pepsican via iowaherkeye. Thanks fellas. Poured a clear golden color with a soapy white head. Nice mixture of Saaz, apricot, hay, and cereal grains in the aroma. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet with mild bitterness at the end. Pleasant pine, pale malt, and subdued apricot flavors. Delicious. wetherel (1899) - Cupertino, California, USA - AUG 24, 2008
On tap at Stone. I love Valley Brew beers, and it’s always a pleasure to try a new one. Light yellow color. Tight small bubble head. Sweetish. Insanely easy to drink. Medium bitterness. Low to no skunk, a super awesome modified hop recipe for a pilsner. The skunky Saaz hop is the biggest deficiency of a pilsner, IMO. Smooth hop flavor. Very, very good pilsner.

sampler @ brewery - light gold with slight haze and minor of carbonation; drinks with a fruity zing; almost like a fruit soda, texture wise; smells like oranges, candy and hops; no bitterness and plenty of sweetness; interesting and pretty tasty overall AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - JUL 14, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2008 On tap at the brew pub, pours champagne gold with no head and little carbonation. The nose is faint of slight bitternes and herbel hop. Make sure you let this warm a bit before drinking, as it opens nicely to release a solid hop profile up front, to a bready, toasted biscuit mid and finally ending with a dry, clean finish.
