Had on-tap at the brewery in Healdsburg.

Pours a clear golden colour, with a very light body. Head is a fluffy, but loose-bubbled white. Patchy, bubbly lace and streaming carbonation rounds out the picture. Not bad.

Aroma is grainy and pleasantly crisp. Some German noble hop characters come through and a light touch of honey. Again, it's not bad. Not exciting, mind, but not bad.

Taste progresses in a similar vein. Mild grain characters, moderate sweetness on the front, with a bready mid-palate that retains its sweetness and omits any fragrance or hop characters. Finish is empty, and crying out for some crispness or true hop bitterness. Pretty average stuff.

Feel is light, which is suitable enough, but it doesn't have much to work with here.

It's not bad. It's drinkable, it's light, but it should be better. This is like Bear Republic saying "Oh, a pils? Yeah, that's that really dull style of beer: we can do that with our eyes closed." But pilseners are a much better style than this very ordinary example would have you believe.

Clean, crisp and very light Pilsener. Nice subtle flavors with just a kiss of hops. Head dissipates leaving a barely spritzy golden brew. Just a hint of malt. Not much aftertaste. Starts out promising but the flavors are so subtle they get lost before long. Rather anemic with food.

On tap at the Salted Pig in Riverside, Calif.

On tap at Eagle Rock Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain/malt and some grassy aromas. Taste is of grain/malt and some grassy and herbal flavors. There is a very slight bitterness with each sip. This beer has a pretty thin mouthfeel with a light level of carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but nothing too great.

@ Ridgewood

Clear yellow under a sticky white head that leaves tons of lace behind on the glass. Aromas of fresh dough. light floral spice, and a slight sulfur note. This may, in fact, be the doughiest smelling beer I have come across. Spicy hops, grain, slight grass, and lager yeast. Pretty light, clean, crisp, and drinkable. A very simple PIls. Certainly not bad overall, but it didn't grab me and demand to be drank by the gallon like a really good Czech Pilsener does.

Sampled at 1702, Tucson November 2009
This beer arrives from the tap with a pale gold, almost brilliantly clear color. There is a wisp of white head that rings the glass. The aroma smells of honey-like malt and a light cracker-like grain note. Some light dried grass aromatics and a touch of lemon zest can also be found in the nose. As the beer warms up the malt becomes more noticeable; this actually has a fairly nice grain character to it in the aroma.

As the beer first hits my palate it comes off as crisp with a clean bitterness to it up front. Pale grain notes are noticeable in the middle and there is a touch of grassiness in the finish as well as a lightly firm bitterness. Lemon like hop notes lightly spice this light tasting beer. Really this is nice, light and refreshing; it is quite clean except for a lingering bitterness that can seem a touch sharp.

This actually seems like a good example of a Helles; it is perhaps missing the malt depth that is found in a good German example. I could drink a lot of this in the warmer months.

On-tap at Woody's City Market served in a standard pint-glass a crisp straw yellow with a decent off-whit head. Aroma is a slight amount of sweet malts and crisp hops. Taste was a subtle but present blend of pale malts againts subdued citrus hops. The beer is quite light and crisp, and would be great on a scorching summer day like we had this past weekend. This is likely the best beer I've had of the style so far.

Growler from Bierkraft. Pours medium yellow coloured body with creamy white head, leaving 3/8 inch of retention. Good creamy mouthfeel, and combined with the sessionable alcohol, this is very drinkable. A nice bitterness, well balanced. Brewery continues to grind out good beers, hitting the style.
