T- Light sweetness up front with a light malt and hop finish.

M- Light body with medium carbonation.

O- Not my cup of tea, too light and lacking flavor.

Bottled On: 09/23/09.

Appearance: Pours a very clear, deep yellow body with an inch-high layer of white head.

Smell: Pilsner malt with lightly sweet-scented, grainy tones and a mild background Noble hop spiciness. Small hint of white grape in there, too.

Taste: Sparsely grainy, lightly sweetish pilsner maltiness preceding the mildly spicy Noble hop character with a fairly low amount of bitterness. Slight white grape fruitiness. Finishes lightly spicy and drying, but then, well, nothing, it just finishes kind of flat without that desired zip of crisp carbonation to help seal the deal.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Without that added zing of crispness, it made for a sub-par, hohum pilsner. Pity.

This came in the winter pack from Costco.

Appearance- pale yellow color, good head but dissipates quickly

Smell- malt, corny aroma

Taste- sweet in the beginning, malts

Mouthfeel- light to medium bodied

Drinkability- ok I would drink it if there's nothing else but I won't seek it out.

12 oz brown bottle with pry off cap poured in a miscellaneous glass in our rented condo at Turtle Bay, Oaho, Hawaii. Purchased at Foodland on the North Shore.

Clear, pale golden yellow. Bright white head is 1/2 inch on the pour. Sporadic lines of lace here and there.

Aroma of noble hops. Herbal and floral. A little biscuit In the background.

Light grainy sweetness with some herbal hops off the start transforms into a floral/herbal hop bitter finish. Pretty straight forward and un-complex.

Light bodied. A little harsh mouthfeel. Lots of carbonation.

This is ok, but nothing special. Pretty average. Not soft enough in the mouthfeel or crisp enough.
