This deep golden lager features a strong, rounded malt profile and the spicy aroma of noble saaz hops from the czech republic. This beer uses a bottom fermenting yeast and is aged a full month before serving to ensure a smooth character.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2016 This is a re-rate. I had it on tap at Bitting. It pours a cloudy golden with some white head, and lacing. The aroma was some hops, bread, and grass. The taste is hoppier than I remember with light hints of citrus and grain. It’s pretty smooth with nice bitterness. This batch was much better than previous versions.

Draft. Pours cloudy gold. Nose and taste of spicy hops, sweet malt and cereal grain. Sweeter than most pilsners. Tasty.

pineypower (3075) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2010
Pours a slightly cloudy straw color with no head. Aroma is of some light grass and some sweet almost corn-like malt. Taste is of some light sticky.grain malt notes, and a light touch of some grass hops. Not much going on here.....

dmac (5588) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Simplistic and bad. Golden body with a small white head. Aroma of sweet corn and vegetables, artificial sugar. Flavor is bland....grains and maybe corn. Weak.

Medium straw gold pour with white head and lace. Light malt aroma and hints of corn. Medium to light malt flavor and no paper or corn flavor++. Good carbonation and mouthfeel. Pretty damn nice pils

Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Good sized frothy bright white head of fine bubbles. Light carbonation. Light malts, lemon and some spicy hops in the aroma. Color is a very pale yellow with good clarity. Soft biscuity malts up front and then some spicy hops late swallow. Just a little though. Some lemon and cereal grains intertwined with the other flavors as well. Finishes a bit pasty with some spicy lemon. A pretty good pilsner.

HoppityHop (197) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Yellowy color with low carbonation. Flavor was grassy, and it didn’t have the aroma or crispness that I expect from the style. Didn’t impress, sorry.

Pretty solid, although I would probably go with another one of JJ’s offerings if I was in town. Unimaginative pils.
