On tap at the Sabastol location. Hits the style with a slightly coriander spicy taste. Nothing special though drinkable. A sour edge finish takes away from taste. Served too cold. Medium bodied and a mild hoppyness, with above average sweetness. Clear coloured, and slightly cheesy aroma.

On tap at Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol, CA

Arrives golden yellow a 1/4" of thick head that lingers. Smell straw and lemons. Taste is similar straw from the wheat and a lemony citrus undertone; hops offer a mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is full but not heavy.

Poured a hazy dark straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a moderate noble hop spice with a doughy malt.

The taste was upfront doughy with a flowery and herbal cleansing hop spice.

The mouthfeel was full and chewy.

Overall a very tasty and easy to drink pils.

This is ok, but not great. It has a thin character that is very standard for really basic, mediocre west coast lagers or pale ales: cracker and grapefruit.

It is very faintly hazy, slightly pale, straw yellow, with a thin white head steadily receding to a thin ring and leaving a weak hint of lace.

The aroma is light, crackers and grapefruit with a hint of herb or pine.

The taste is similar, mostly crackers and light grapefruit with a hint of pine and lemon. It is thin and very light, bland, neither sweet nor bitter. There really is very, very little going on here. It's drinkable, but very boring and bland.
