COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Plenty of hops - still smooth, incredible light color and still a 5% beer with a wonderful bloom.

JK (4377) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2010
One of the best American pils I have had. Light gold color. Carbonation is a little low. Well hopped, almost like a Bohemian pilsener. Medium palate.

asedzie (590) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours golden with medium white head. Big flowery, leafy hop aroma up front, but lots of subtle noble complexity, not overwhelming, with honey-like malt in the background. Palate is very nice, a little fuzzy carbonation, mouth pleasing resins. Flavor is very full of fresh barley graininess, ends on a lightly bitter herbal note. A very well done german-style pilsner.

marcus (6363) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours clear pale yellow with a modest white head and a banana aroma. There is a refreshing pilsner flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Grassy, grainy body, some light floral notes, and a dry earth finish. Soft with cracker like malts and a drying finish. Eh.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Translucent straw, a little hint of gold, thin sudsy white head, falls quickly, leaving hardly any lacing.   Soft grassy notes, pale malts on the nose.   Quite grassy on the tongue, good dose of sweetness, clean on the exit.   A little mealy, or cereal like, but not bad.   I don’t say this often, but for a Pils it could stand to be a little less heavy.   Falls off quickly at the finish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, perhaps even a bit heavier than I would prefer.   Lingering cereal/mealy notes on the tongue.   Tiz okay, but wished it were a bit more crisp, less heavy, and not as mealy.

jake65 (2594) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - NOV 4, 2009
At Bayern: Bright, but pale yellow with a small white head. Nice sheets of lacing. Faint yeast and malt in the nose. Crisp and wheaty with a light floral element. A little earthy in the tail before a lingering floral ending.

Decently smooth, not very distinctive but quite drinkable. A thumbs up from me.

boFNjackson (4117) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle... Poured clear, barely golden or yellow with a white head head that dissipated immediately. Cracker malts on the nose. A little hoppy and citrusy, but mostly a dull malt character that dominated. Wasn’t a fan of this pilsener at all. More like a pale lager to me.
