Bottle:   Hazy straw, light carbonation, moderate white frothy head, nice lacing.   Musty straw nose, dried grass.   Doesn’t seem as grassy or green as others.   Dusty straw on the tongue, very much like the tall dry stuff.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes dry, dusty and dried grassiness.   Seems clean, not as sweet or green as others, but its decent.   Thanks for the can Bill!

Pint glass at Lake Creek Alamo (yeah, I was at Flix earlier- had a double dip!)- served in shaker that was a transparent dulled yellow/orange color. Aroma of bread and floral hops. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt feels very light overall, hops come in the middle, finish is clean, sharp, refreshing, and mildly acidic. ’Bout time these guys started making some F&)(ing beer!

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
On tap. Pours with a clear straw golden hued body with a large, fluffy white head. Aromas are of bready malt, floral and spicy hop, light citrus notes. Overall grainy. Clean yeast wise. Flavors show a medium to strong grassy bitterness, hay, straw, clean and dry. Pronounced lingering bitterness. A hint metallic. Clean yeast wise. Dry, crisp, and bitter with lively carbonation and smaller bodied.

Nice tohave this available year round here in austin. I HATE PILSNERS! but this one takes it to the next level. I LOVE HOPS! and this beer proves that even a bad style can be saved by hops! My dislike of the style is the cereal flavor is how I describe it. Makes you want to add milk and use a spoon, not on this baby! It begs for you to guzzle it and drink more. It is very crisp and refreshing, especially on Texas hot as hell summers! THe nose is floral and slight fruity with this backbone of cracker I get. The mouthfell is light and crisp, and finishes with a nice hop flavor. I am always excited to throw these in as extras because its an under the radar beer!

Terminus (3237) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Can-purchased at whole foods Austin, TX-pours lite golden yellow with a small fizzy whispy white head. nose is dank spicy hops-noble green type with some spruce-like notes. lovely. flavors exhibit the spicy spruce like hop notes, nice pale malt grain malt with some sweetness (not over atenuated like alot of pils are leaving behind wet grains/carbroard-none of that here). crisp, almost woody hop finish with lingering spritzy seltzer water-like carbonation tingle on the tongue. this is a lovely pilsener that would be in my fridge ALL the time if i lived in this area. One of the best i have had!

Caytinator (943) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2012
On draught at The Ginger Man in Austin. My highest rating yet for a pilsener, really impressed with this beer. Pour was pale golden with 1/2 finger head. Delicious aroma. Wasn’t expecting such a fresh taste! Appropriately hoppy. Medium body, easy to drink with food, also. Great palate, great beer!

Clear yellow with a modest white head. Aroma of florals, grass, and some biscuit. Taste is slightly sweet and citrusy with a decent bitterness. Light bodied and a tad soapy. It’s ok, something just doesn’t gel for me here.
