Drank a half-pint of this beer on tap at the 2007 North Market Microbrew Fest. The brewer himself was there, and this is what he recommended from their selection. Pours a clear, bright yellowish-gold with a fizzy white head. Pretty good retention. Taste and smell were clean and crisp, like a nice pilsener. Nothing remarkable. Balanced between a medium maltiness and a little hoppiness. Again, nothing stands out. Sharp mouthfeel, almost bitey. Overall, pretty easy to drink. When it's a little colder, it's nice and refreshing, but anyone looking for real complexity should look elsewhere.

A: Pours a clear golden/orange color. A two finger white head forms with decent retention. Light lace.
S: Spicy and floral hops up front. A light fruity aroma. Grainy malt lingers.
T: Grainy malt take over. The fruity and spicy hops are all but gone.
M/D: A thin body and high carbonation. Not hard to drink if I wanted to put a few away.

Same old song. The nose had a little more going, but overall another bland attempt.

Very pale yellow clear colored beer. It has a pretty clumpy head with some decent lacing. Very few carbonation bubbles after about 1 minute past opening. It has a clear bready smell. It is very mild though and hard to pick up unless you are almost touching it. Taste is like most pilseners. Some more eccentric hops at work here, not just traditional pils hops. I'm having trouble picking it out. It's medium bodied with medium carbonation. I'd say it's a decent beer, but not the beer I'd order if I wanted a pils

Beer poured from bottle into a tall Pilsener shaped glass

A - Beer pours with a clear golden colored body; well-carbonated; forms a nice one finger sized white head, but doesn't seem to hold very well; would get more style points, but kind of looks very thin, even for a Pilsener

S - Grain and corn; basic malt scents of toast; touch of rose, almost floral, nose to it; some sweet sugary notes to it also; lager airiness

T - Straight lager airiness; flat with slight bitter taste; not much bite; corn and some other grains; touch of sweetness at the start of the sip

M - Crisp and refreshing; slight hop bitter aftertaste, but lingers much longer and becomes more profound as time passes

D - Overall I'm not very crazy about this beer; I would pass if I had another stab at this; probably not something to brag about, but wouldn't hurt to have if you invite guests over who aren't that familiar with craft brews
