Pours a light, golden yellow color, clear and bright as day with a small white head. Aroma is dry pale malt, with just a light touch of earthy hop zest. Very subtle. Taste is definitely malt-forward, very dry and very grainy. More earthy hops to give it a rounded, slightly bitter finish. Not my normal style, but definitely a well-crafted example of a pilsner.

Dogbrick (11323) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Sample at the 29th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival on 07/30/2016. Pale golden color with a medium thin frothy white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lace. Herbal hops, fruit and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of floral hops, fruit and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

jackl (7011) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Keg @ Red Cow, North Loop. Deep gold pour with a small head. Gentle straw, baked pastry, a bit of singed grass. Flavor is clean and well balanced. Sweet white bread, a touch of honey. Earthy haystack. Slightly peppery dry finish. Light and easy going, appropriately active carbonation. One of MN’s better pils.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Can. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a one finger frothy white head that left some sticky lace. The nose is floral and noble hops over a clean bready malt base. The flavor is nicely bitter up front, fading to a bready and doughy malt finish. There’s a bit of a light lemony note towards the finish, but the hops do a decent job of covering that up. Light bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Decent pils, not the best.

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Clear, pale golden yellow. Abundant, fragrant aroma of lemon oils, straw and dried flowers, honeyed sweetness with no graininess; underlying touches of vanilla and lavender, herbal. Delicate flavor with less action than the aroma; straw-like bitterness, floral-tinted sweetness, appropriately tidy, no butteriness or husky flavors. Such a soft palate; this is buoyant and crisp, polished. Low, lingering bitterness, lightly peppery, in the finish.

theisti (3851) - Kansas, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Draft at The Bachelor Farmer in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pour is clear golden with a well formed one inch white head. The aroma is clean Pilsener cereal grain and a soft citrus lemon. Clean fresh nose. The taste is a nice balance between the cereal cracker grain and the fresh clean citrus hops. The palate is lighter bodied, active carbonation and a clean dry mineral finish. Solid, great with tomato soup starter.

Homer321 (4176) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Can thanks to Kyle The Hoff. Lightly hazy pale yellow pour with a large white pillow head. Nose is a light citrus, almost saaz like. Lightly grassy but fruity as well. Soft bread. Taste is light lemon and crackery malt with a subtle malt sweetness. Balanced by a soft bitterness. Overall pretty nice but a tad fruity.

joet (2534) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Aromas of lemon, floral, earthy. Dim golden in color with white frothy head. Light medium body and spritzy feel. Refreshing and easy drinking. Probably a solid food companion.
