Pours a gorgeous platinum blonde with a white head that fades relatively quickly with no lacing. Bouquet characterized by notes of banana, lemon zest, and Belgian yeast. Wonderful mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, and banana and lemon zest make this a remarkable and easy-drinking pilsner. But what makes it truly terrific is the smooth and quickly vanishing floral finish. Because the brain recognizes that it is a pilsner, the finish of this beer can almost be described as sweet. This is by far the best pilsner I've ever drunk. Figueroa Mountain--you know what you're doing. (576 characters)

I like this beer- to me it's the ultimate American pilsner; light, crisp, and perfect for a hot day in Buellton. And believe me, there are some HOT days here. (159 characters)

Pours a medium clear amber with a nice white head that quickly fades. Loses the head fast and then appears very light and more yellow with orange tint.

Nose is full on Belgian yeast and cooked bananas with that wonderful "carnuba wax" ester smell. Tortilla and corn nose as it sits in glass.

Mouthfeel is lovely in balance, brightness and carbonation.

Flavor profile is yeasty fresh white bread; soda cracker and green pepper/celery and salt bitter. Flavors are all integrated and well balanced.

Finish is bitter pine that is long lasting and pleasant.

All in all a very nice, well rounded and inviting drink. A "go to" with food. (640 characters)

A: Pours a beautiful clear straw color. The head is bright white and clings to the glass well. Bubbles make for an inviting brew.

S: The aroma is fruity, bready, with a good "skunk" note common in Czech Pilsners.

T: The flavor is great. Nice bitterness up front rounded by sweetness with a dry finish.

M: Crisp yet fulfilling this one nails it. Good C02 level.

O: A great Pils coming from the Santa Ynez Valley. (418 characters)

On tap at King's Row Gastropub in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a clear golden-yellow with a foamy bone colored head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and hay. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is easy to drink. (404 characters)
