On tap at Beachwood BBQ in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear light yellow with an off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with a slight bitterness after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is pretty good beer that I am glad I got to try but not something I would go for again most likely.

On tap.

A: Straw color, lacking in head. Lots of bubbles.

N: Ample pilsner malt and hint of hops. A touch of musty grape.

T: Leans towards the bitter with a light touch of sweetness.

M: Full mouthfeel.

O: Not as refreshing or interesting as Heater Allen, but very clean and good for a hoppier crossover in the style. This batch might have been out of touch with previous ones, too.

Pint at "b2" taphouse in Salem. $3.00 Simple yellow lager beer with a largish frothy purest white head. Good fresh grassy hop aromas, malt is caramel,bready,nutty Taste is very refreshing zingy,grassy,fruity hop predominates..very light tasing but far from boring . Good palate for the style went down well enough. Good simple lager would have been even better in high summer.

On tap at Grain & Gristle in a shaker pint. Light hazy gold capped with 2 fingers of fairly tenacious white foam. Good lacing.

Smells largely of baking bread and spicy hops with some light honeyish sweetness. It's a little sweeter and fruitier than I anticpated, but the power of the hops won't be denied. Scathingly bitter with a load of spicy noble hop goodness. Seriously and impressively hoppy with a drying finish. An easy recommendation here.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.

Pale, golden yellow with a thick, foamy white head, nice lacing.

Grassy, lightly floral, with a crackery malt backbone.

Medium bodied with a crisp, clean finish.

A very nice, easy drinking pilsner. Nothing particularly outstanding, but just very well done overall.

Poured from tap. Pristine and clear straw color with a small head.

Balanced with clear aromas of grains, citrus and some crackers. Lacking some "pop" to it, but very correct

Nice crisp and light feel. Balanced with fresh notes of grains, noble hops, and a touch of citrus.

A quality pilsner. Nice and crisp with everything being in the right place.
