3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at RFD. Soft orange pour with a white head. Lots of lacing in the glass. Aroma is buttery, hoppy, a bit grassy and a bit sharp. Flavor has some mild hop bitterness with a bit of that buttery kick again. Good beer but needs a but more hop assertiveness to balance out the malt bill.

Very nice on tap, a bit course with full mouth, nice head over light copper color, had a lot of delicate fruits with plenty of malt as well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the best beer so far this summer. The alcohol is not listed I think it is 8-9% ABV. The growler was given to me for my vacation at Holden Beach. The Pils was saved for steamed crabs with my two sons and daughter. We all raved about the beer. It was full body with perfect malt and a creamy texture. The higher alcohol is detected but is a joy. This is a beer to be enjoyed with food and just sitting and looking at the ocean. Smooth finish with a lingereing taste of malt. The pils poured with a big head and deep straw color. Much lacing. This was one growler I just did not want it to end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft a few times at different places. Pours gold, slight white head. Overall too sweet and boozy for such a delicate style. Cereal, sugar, light floral hoppiness.

(US backlog 2012) 8x draught sample flight at VA brewpub 14/ix/12. Actually enjoyable US-gargantuan, imperial take on modest old-world Pilsner, like a well-hopped (Saaz) and actually drinkable Faxe. Heavy though - when in the US and in need of hops and +7% ABV, this is a hard bargain against any decent IPA.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of grass. Sweet malt and light grass flavor with a strange butter-like undertone.

Hmm, it looks very pretty with murky gold pour and a big white head that slowly fades into a ton of lacing. The aroma is decent with a nice hop and malt blend. The taste unfortunately doesn’t balance as well. This is certainly one of the strangest pilsners I’ve ever tried. It leaves a very odd and unpleasant aftertaste. I suppose it’s the hops? Easily some of the worst hops I’ve ever had if so though. It’s a shame because the beer is light and creamy up front but the finish cannot be overlooked!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(on tap) A clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of straw, pale malt, hints of bubblegum and floral notes. Flavor is sweet (fruit, bubblegum, honey), and mildly hoppy (citrus). Pilsner malt flavor. Good body--medium to full, a little chewy, and carbonated. A very enjoyable pilsner.
