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

Oakes (12552) - 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.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2002
Rich golden, clear with minimal head. Delightful aroma of Noble hops and sweet malt. Flavor doesn’t live up to that, but it’s not bad. Sweet up front taste quickly turning pilsner-bitter on mid-to-back tongue. Aftertaste of that same bitterness lingers pleasantly.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Aroma of grassy hop, slight malt. Clear light gold color, with a very slight white head. Starts sweet, develops a little body as the carbonation leaves, finishes rather balanced with the hop finally coming forth. Pretty good, though more bitter would fit the style.

Ratman197 (9802) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of straw, bread, spicy hops and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, bread, earthiness and spicy hops with a crisp dry finish.

hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2005
12oz bottle labeled best before Oct. ’05. Poured a lighter and slightly hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of we grass, grain, banana and somewhat fruity. Tastes of banana, grain and a little doughy. The body was stronger compared to the other Pilsners of late (may have been the doughy/breadiness to it).

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. Clear pale gold with a small white head. Corn syrup pilsner malt and light DMS / sweet cabbage aroma with minimal aroma hops (light lemon laundry soap). Similarly dirty flavor with sweet carrot and cabbage and some gravel / concrete minerality. Semi-sweet, fizzy carb, medium-low acid, watery texture. All sorts of problems with this one.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle thanks to kyzr: Pours a transparent golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale grainy malt and some saaz hops. Body starts lightly sweet and nicely balanced with a bitter hoppy presence before a crisp, clean finish. A pretty good pilsener.

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2012
12oz bottle pours crystal clear gold with loose white head. The aroma offers up sugary sweet malts and grainy malts as well as sort of a light floral hoppiness. The taste is similar with a heavy handed sugary sweetness followed by a modest level of grainy malts and floral hops rimmed with a sort of lagery yeast sweetness. OK but could be less sweet.
