Very nice representation of this classic style. On tap at Pony NYC. Classic golden color, nice balance between malt and hops. If you like a good Pils drink this!!!

My Bottom Line:
Crisp haystacks and soft herbal greenness are well expressed in this clean, effervescent Pilsener.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam settles atop the misty straw blond.
-This is hoppier than nearly all German Pilseners or Kellerbiers, but all flavors are very pleasant.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Minerality accompanies the hop finish.
-Pils malts contribute both aroma and flavor.
-The only thing this one lacks for me is a bit more softness on the malt and mouthfeel front. Otherwise, it’s a very good take at the style.

mansquito (5462) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Alewife, Queens tap: Pours golden with white head. Aroma is a bit of grass, plenty of Czech hops, and nice bready malts. This pilsner, while not excessively complicated fits the bill of a clean Czech pils very well. Nice amount of hoppy bitterness. Very well balanced with the bready malts. A great refreshing beer this was.

A light and crisp beginning with some surprising malt drops into a lighter pils hops swirl, which gives way to lasting pilsner power. Very Czech, very delicious.

BLADT (698) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2014
From keg. Clear gold in glass with white head. No lacing to note. Aroma is hay, grass. Maybe some fruit and honey sweetness. Faint corn. Taste pulls together nicely: grass tempered with medium sweetness. Light grain. Minor league musk. Some bready malts. Good.
