This is excellent.

Pale straw gold, big white head fairly quickly shrinks to a foamy ring and weak hint of lace.

Aroma is slightly funky vegetables, wet earth, hint of sulphur, yeasty bread dough noticeable after a minute, then mellows to a "wonderbread"-like element.

Taste is unusual, bitterness just barely, gently dominates from the start to finish. It is balanced with light sweetness, mineral, yeast. Hop bitterness is grassy-herbal, faintly medicinal and sticks to sides of tongue & cheeks gently in a nice, engaging way. Light sweetness and minerally yeasty bread dough dominate the centre of the tongue through thr aftertaste. It is engaging, lively, highly drinkable.

A - Pours with one finger of dense, white foam on top of a clear, light golden body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves excellent lace.

S - Musty pilsner malt with notes of honey and herbal hops.

T - Lightly sweet malt up front with some herbal hop character coming out in the middle. More musty, herbal hop flavor in the finish with dry, thin malt.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a very dry finish.

D - Pretty nicely made, the hop character is right on and though the malt is a bit thin in my opinion but it is still very drinkable.

A: single finger head with nice retention and good lacing on a clear bright straw-gold body.

S: grains and pale malts. just not very fruit, some spices.

T: very nice version of the style. The bitter hop character is well represented, the malt and grain base balance the hops well. a little spicey with mild sweet corn sweetness mostly in the middle.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation, semi dry finish.

Overall: I like this one for the style. Its drinkable and well balanced.

A: The beer is relatively clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down a bit but consistently left a quarter finger high head covering the surface and lots of thin rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of grainy malts and grassy hops in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some hints of bready malts. There’s a light amount of bitterness, but it is relatively prominent given the lighter-bodied nature of this beer; the bitterness lingers through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, clean and a bit dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather bitter for the style and seems like it would be a pilsner that a hophead might even enjoy. It is very easy to drink and rather sessionable.

Poured a very clear pale yellow, a little cloudy.

The smell was mostly yeast, quite sweet but very subtle.

The taste was also very subtle there was some faint hops, grass and lemons.

The mouthfeel was pretty thin with medium carbonation.

Overall not that bad, but the smell and taste are far too weak.

A-cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head

S-light tangy wheats, almost like a witbier. Corn and lemon. Faint. 

T-comes in with a very decent taste of lemon and fresh slightly bitter grass. It's a very good and crisp taste that leaves the perfect amount of bitterness on the tongue. The after-taste is of fresh corn.

M-medium creamy carbonation with a good crisp finish

O-actually this is pretty awesome. It's refreshing. It tastes like a cross between a witbier and a pilsner. It's very enjoyable.

On-tap at the Rogue Brewery in Newport, OR.

Pours a pale yellow colour, remarkably clear, with a light body and a fine, full head of white. Lacing leaves patterned rings down the glass. Looks good.

Aroma is bitey and sharp, with zesty lemon providing the bulk of the flavour. There's some pleasant pils grain undertones to it as well, and a hint of wet grass. Solid aroma overall: the characters are quite robust, more so than usual for beer that's not hop-dominant.

Palate is quite light, but there's flavours and complexities there when you look for them. Light organic matter on the front melds from grainy to peppery mid-palate. Some sharper material on the finish, with some slight phenol action giving up some anise and a lingering medicine character. Feel is very light, but surprisingly, not all that crisp.

Overall, it's very drinkable and enjoyable, and what's more it has a lot more interest than your average pils. Not bad, overall.

Poured from a fresh 22oz bottle into a perfect pint.

This brew has an attractive golden-white pour. The nose is grainy and bready, with some herbal hops punching out. The taste is fantastic, this beer has an absolutely perfect pilsner malt taste. It's not too sweet or too grainy, it's just right. The hops are also very good, they're sharp and herbal, just like they should be. The mouthfeel is crisp and light, and the drinkability is very good. There's really not too much to say about this one except that it is an absolutely excellent pilsner. It doesn't do anything out of the box, but it is perfectly refined.

Clear yellow colored beer with a tall white head. A little disappointing expected at least a golden color.

Smell is grain and sharp noble hops. Scents of saffron, hay, flowers and minerals. Smells spicy with a nice fresh biscuit malt aroma.

Starts out biscuits and caramel with a mineral water flavor. Hard water and hops gets less sweet as you drink it. Bitter, herbal and even a little soapy.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty beer I would drink more often if it didn't cost so much.
