The fiance brought this one back for me from a recent west coast trip. Heard so much about the brewery, I couldn't turn it down.
Anyway, it poured with a frizzy, crackling, bleach white head. Meanwhile the beer itself is light golden and crystal clear with a highly carbonated effervescense. A light floral bouquet exists in the nose that displays some paler malt notes as well. Very light and crisp mouthfeel defines the style. There's some maize flavors, a little bit of floral, but certainly more pale than I would have expected upon embarking on this brew. I'd give a slight edge to the hops in the balance battle. It finishes with a little bitter kick but still remains soft. I sense a touch of grapefruit at the end. Not bad, however mostly a forgettable beer.

On tap at the Buena Vista Fisherman's Wharf SF. Bright yellow color. Smell is sort of grainy and boring, nothing of note here but nothing offensive. Flavor is more of the same, just a ho-hum pilsner and not something I would ever order again, it was just lackluster.
Serving type: on-tap
