9/15/14. 12oz bottle from Warehouse. I took the first few swigs from the bottle for the summer pilsner experience but poured most into a teku. Almost clear golden pour, some orange hues, under a surprisingly big khaki head that sticks around and laces just fine. Relatively plain aroma, some doughiness, straw, a bit of earthy, floral, and sweaty hop character. Plain but seemingly inoffensive flavor - doughy, a touch of a chalky aspect, straw, grass, floral hops, a bit of bitterness and lingering light stone fruits. Goes down surprisingly smooth. Could be worse.

obguthr (3836) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Grassy noble hop aroma, but with an additional grapefruit and starfruit note. Hazy amber, thick head, good lace. Grass, lemon zest, dandelion, lemongrass. Light body. Quite nicely crafted as a summer pilsner. It definitely has a brighter and sharper hop note than other pilsners, well suited for the hot summer months.

Fatehunter (1216) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Pours two and half fingers of head on a hazy straw colored body. The aroma has lemon, cut grass and some pine needles. The taste has a nice bitter start, rounded with some mild sweetness. Finishes with a touch of metallic bitterness. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. This is a great pils.

kevinator (923) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2014
It’s a standard pilsner with a slightly hoppier presence. Aroma of pale malt, lager yeast and floral hops. Golden and clear with a fizzy white head. Light and watery palate with high carbonation. Hop bitterness up front with a light grainy malt finish. Drier than expected. Decent.

wxman (1428) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with a robust white head, with some lacing. Pleasant grassy aroma. Smooth, sweet pale malt, biscuit and medium hop bitterness flavor. Darn good pils!

Bottle. Gold color with a nice head. Aroma is hay and weeds. Taste is an off taste of hay and leafs.

nearbeer (3729) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2014
12 oz. Pours a lightly hazy burnt orange with a lasting film of cream. Unexpectedly bold aroma of spicy citrus zest, caramel, toast and dry grass is nice. Taste is the same pleasant mix and almost seems to have touches of wheat. Light-medium body has a good balance and high-medium, but mostly smooth CO2. This is a surprisingly excellent and bold take on a mostly boring style.

Bork (172) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Fairly standard pilsner with a thicker than normal texture and a distinct hop bitterness lasting all the way through the mouth. Refreshing.

Lightly hazy gold beer, decent white head. Smooth palate, fine carbonation. Smooth malts, trace of cream. Hops are orangey with a little hop spice and decent dollop of bitterness. Smooth finish. Not bad at all.

BeerandBlues2 (9697) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark gold with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is spicy, minty and woody hops and light Pils malt. Flavor is moderate hops and medium bitterness, crisp Pils malt and a dry, clean finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.
