3.63/5 rDev -5.2%
On tap at the Ballast Point Tasting Room and Kitchen.
Clear yellow-gold with a very good, semi-durable white head. Very good lacing
Feel: medium body; High-medium carbonation.
Smell: Nice mix of hops that dominate the malts, but there is a detectable brady malt base.
Taste: appropriate for style, although it has a lightfruitiness from, I guess, American hops.
O: a worthy American version of the style.

3.75/5 rDev -2.1%
On tap @ Ballast Point Linda Vista 11/11/09. Part of the "Hapy Hump Day" event during San Diego Beer Week. The board had this listed as 6.4% ABV, not the posted 4.6%, as I did not add this to the database.
Pours a crystal clear gold, with a small covering of brite-white foamy head. Retains with a lighter frothy look, leaving a smattering of lacing behind. The aroma is fairly even smelling, with the sweeter accents from the bready malts helping balance the fresh flowers, citrus, and spice of the hops. This might be lacking a bit of robustness but otherwise, this is fine.
The taste starts with tight Pils malt, before a smack of lemony citrus and some moderately spicy Czech hop character blow in. The initial bitter bite of this is actually about light-medium feeling, as far as hop attacks go, but man does this linger strongly. Spice just sticks in the mouth and hangs in there for a good bit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a crisp easiness to the feel that belies it's higher alcohol content.
Decent little Czech Pils here, that while maybe lacking some bite to the bitterness, still brought the spice in spades to this. A good body and some great overall feel and drinkibility really kept this in the game.

Served on tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a crystal clear pale straw yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts and grassy hops. There are some light amounts of spices in the aroma as well.
T: The beer has a bready malt body with moderate amounts of grassy hop flavors. There is a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness. Some hints of lemon citrus as well a light spice presence.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and clean.
O: A very enjoyable beer for the summer - crisp and refreshing. This is a enjoyable beer and I could easily have a couple of these in a session.

On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
