Transfer review. Nice transparent straw color with a rather thin, white wispy head. For the nose and on the palate this beer seems more like a Czech pils than a German variety. I have to assume it was intended to be German as all of their beers are in that tradition. Nonetheless, Saaz lovers will appreciate this one. Big hop character, in both nose and on the palate, with some herbal, earthy and "root" flavors. Very dry, exceptionally dry, is that cotton in my mouth? No, seriously, it’s an excellent pils if you’re looking for Saaz love, and highly recommended overall to any drinker. Possible transition beer for BMC folks? Just maybe.

Pours gold with a white head. Smells of dry pilsner malt, apples, perfumy. Tastes sweet and earthy with some floral grassy hints on the finish.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2008
12 oz bottle-rating #500!-Pours a cloudy golden color w/a slight white head. Has some hop bite to it, a lot more than I expect when I hear pilsner, maybe a little too much for me. Seemed kind of one dementional to me, kind of IPA ish. Could use some malt/sweetness in the finish to balance it out. Not bad, but it left a lot to be desired

Bottle sampled. Pours golden/copper with an average size white head. Aroma of palt malts, citrus, and grassy hops. The flavor is slightly sweet, grain, and a citrusy bitter finish.

Bottle from State Line. Deep gold pour with 1-finger white head. Aroma is bready pale malt, some hopcitrus. Tastes malty, with some mid-palate apricot, and a smooth hopcitric finish.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 15, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy, medium golden color; white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Slightly vegetal (cabbage?) aroma, hints of sugar and citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel: lively carbonation; wet malts and candy sugar; slightly creamy and vegetal; drinkable, but not terribly pleasant. Hints of sugar and bitterness in the finish.

12oz bottle. Clear and filtered. Golden hued. Spotty white head. Typical grainy bready cereal nose. Initially dry with an odd smokey flavor. Almost meaty? Nice dry finish. Odd, but fuller than most pilsners.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2007
From a 12 oz. bottle with no freshness date, blurb on the back label, sampled at a cooler cellar temperature in a pilsener glass. Poured a very slightly hazy amberish orange with a foamy white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing. Aromas of lemon honey and soap, spicy and herbal, and sweet grainy malts. Good, moderate carbonation and a crisp, hop dry, rough medium bodied mouthfeel. A pretty hoppy pils, spicy and herbal bitterness, a sharp bitterness at the start of the taste, soft fruity, sugary pilsener malts, and a dry hop, malty finish. The most hopped up pilsener I’ve tried, not sure if I like, makes it a bit rough in palate, doesn’t have the smooth drinkability with the dry clean finish one expects in a pilsener.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Orangey yellow in color, more orange hues than your average pilsner. Very generous initial head, great retention, solid lacing, a pretty nice looking product (although those pilsner steady stream of rising bubbles weren’t there). The aroma was caramel (pilsner?), light tea bags, some honey. The flavor was all of that, again more caramel than I’d expect in a pilsner, strong bitter hop touch, although not overly grassy. This thing is hopped like an IPA, rather original in that regard, but not really my cup of tea (or tea bags). Mouthfeel was moderate for the style, carbonated, but not overly so."
