This Pilsner is an American Pils with the characteristics of being light in body and color, refreshingly crisp and moderately hopped. Only 2-Row-Barley-Malt, Carapils and light caramel are used for this smooth beer. The bitterness comes from a blend of domestic hops.

Oakes (14841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2008
Slightly hazy dull gold. Gentle carbonation but no head. Smells very macro - all fusels and acetaldehyde. No hops. Vague, heavy, doughy malts, accents of corn syrup and some background, indistinct toejammy sort of raunch. The general blandness helps it go down but even with the help it’s a bit labourious to choke back a full bottle.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a moderate white head that diminished slowly. Average hoppy aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Medium sweet small bitter flavor with a short finish.

DuffMan (8940) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 6, 2007
Pale straw yellow, moderate white head with poor retention. Sweet, faintly banana aroma. Bland palate, a little too sweet and waaay under-hopped to be called a pilsner.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Pours a transparent pale golden with a large, frothy, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of earthy noble hops and some grainy pale malt. Body starts pretty thin and watery with just a touch of sweetness and some earthy, mildly skunky noble hop bitterness toward a balance, but drinkable finish.

Braudog (6196) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Golden and still with a thin veil. Malty sugar aroma. Tangily tart and sweet, but exceptionally crisp with a hint of lemon, but primarily a malty cerealy beer.

The only thing that told me that this was a pilsener was the label on the bottle. Gold, flat, and headless, this has a very faint malt aroma with a suggestion of hops. The flavor is 95% sweet, grainy malts and a pinch of hops. There’s a sweet, grainy, hopless finsh. So, how is this a pils?

This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a fair lace. The aroma was malty and delicately hopped while the mouthfeel was tingly smooth and crisp. The flavor was mildly acidic with malt and minor hop notes.

Bottle. Really like the shade of blue used on the label, enough to mention it. Macro nose, corn and grain, stale air. Pale, pale yellow pour with a noisy white head. Taste is bland with syrupy sweetness and a little metal, finish with a graininess edged by cantaloupe that makes me wonder about quality control. Corn and a touch of citus. Watery body. Yuck.

Oh, and...not a Pilsner.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2002
Yes, an american pils. THats not saying alot. Light straw color with a wispy white head. Light malt sweetness with moderate bitterness. A salty finish. Lacks the real bit of a bavarian or bohemian pils.
