Note to the BA folks. This beer is not the Butte Creek Organic Pilsner. Completely different beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A - Looks an awful lot like a macro American lager. Urine colored with a decent head, though not great. Seems to lack the carbonation that I see in some other Euro lagers.

S - Crisp lager-like smell with a bit of bittering Noble hops. A slight malt finish is obserable, but not by much. In all honesty, this beer doesn't smell like much of anything.

T - OK. Starts a bit sweet, then the hops take over and bring it back down to where a Pilsner should be. Finishes with a bit of a funky bite that I can't put my finger on, but it isn't unpleasant.

M - Lacks the bubbles and the end result is a somewhat watery feel.

D - Not a great beer by any stretch, but it isn't difficult to drink either.

This was sampled in a 4 oz glass at Hops in Humboldt 2007 but that was enough to taste this one. It poured a nice clear golden color with thick head and good lacing. Nose of malts and hops and a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor was slightly bitter and so was the finish. Very enjoyable to drink even if not complex.
