On tap:
Pours almost clear yellow gold with nice thin sustaining puck atop the beer with lines of lacing.

Nose of lightly spiced bread with lying on a grassy bed.

Taste is a little maltier than expected from nose, but it fades by mid-taste. Very light feel on this beer, but a herbal to grassy bitterness saves the day a bit. The bitterness never gets out of control, though the end leans ever so slightly that way. Light but sufficient carbonation.

Enjoyable beer to have chilled, but to not get too warm, for my palate. Could be a session beer for part of the day, at least, or an enjoyable break from heavier options.

Pours a clear gold with a bubbly, one-and-a-half finger head that leaves lots of lace.
Aroma is cracker, grain, spice and a touch of lemon.
Tats is crackery with some grassy notes, a touch of citrus and a nice cracking, slightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is medium and soft with just-right carbonation.
Clean, crisp, refreshing.

Venture Pils pours a golden color with a small head. Weaker aroma, with hints of skunk. Taste is a little skunk, unusually sweet and a too bitter aftertaste. Good body and feel. Overall, a mediocre pils.
