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

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Draft at the brewery taproom; Poured in the traditional slow style (nice!), this has a classice German visual appeal -- golden grain, bubbly, with a nice bright poofy head. Sharp hoppy aroma. Silky smooth and sharply, almost puckeringly, bitter. Classic German pils, reminiscent of a good olí Bitburger stubie. (#2929, 5/19/2007)

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle. Hazy gold with thin white head. Really ugly for a pils. Nice hoppy aroma with malt backbone. Malty flavour with hoppy bite. Pleasing finish. This is a tasty ugly looking pilsener.

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2007
12 oz bottle, via kyzr. Pours a crystal clear light gold colored body under a very thin fizzy white head that immediately vanished. The aroma is very light, just a bit of bready pils malt, a little bit of grassiness, and a hint of DMS. Fairly crisp flavor with just a hint of DMS on the finish. Light bitterness level. Mouthfeel is light bodied and thin with a fairly crisp finish. Moderate lively carbonation thatís appropriate for the style. This wasnít half bad, not the most exciting beer, but still enjoyable.

Beerdedone (2494) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2007
Sampled with stegosaurus. Pours a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of grass, grain, and citrus. Flavor is malty with mild hops.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, grain, and fruit. The flavor is citrus, grain, sweet malts, fruit, and a very slight hoppy presence.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2007
12 oz. bottle via trade with kyzr - Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a thin white head. Flavor and aroma are grain and herbal hops. Light body and very thin palate. Decent Pils. Thanks Mitch

HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Very nice, crisp, full flavored, hoppy pilsener. Possibly the best American-made craft brewed pilsener Iíve had to-date. The hops really made this for me, which were very up-front and bitter, but with a clean finish that didnít overwhelm the palate. Maybe a little heavy for the style, but a very good beer nontheless.

Oakes (11842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Bright yellow. Light but balanced aroma of continental hops and pale malt. Herbal hops, moderate bitterness, and light pale malt flavour. Reminds me of Veltins.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 Bottled. Pours a clear pale gold with a diminishing white head. Not much aroma but some flowery hops, hay and biscuit can be found. The body is light and a bit watery with medium carbonation. The taste is bread and toffee with a crisp pine/floral finish that turns a bit toward soap at the end of the glass.

blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 I had this beer on tap at The Bier Stein several weeks ago, and enjoyed it so much I had another. I concur with the reviewer whose experience with the bottled version was not as good. The beer pours pretty standard golden with firm white head. Sweet flowery perfume aroma with malty undertones of caramel and almonds. The beer is full and clean on the palate, and goes down crisp and easy without excessive aftertaste, although there is some grain flavor in the finish. Itís a not a classic example of the style, but I like the direction they took this one. Unfortunately, the beer was not as enlightening in the bottle as it was on tap.
