dekester1 (324) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Poured a light gold with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was of piney and floral hops with a slight breadiness. Taste had a malt backbone surrounded by floral/pine hop moderate bitterness. Mouth was average at best. Overall, a decent by not exceptional pils.

notalush (4992) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Clear gold with a light ring of lace - not much carbonation to speak of in the body - crisp maltiness and a fairly snappy mineral kick in the nose, along with some lightly pungent hoppiness - light body - a light froth in the mouth, but it really needs more lively carbonation, as it is mostly kind of limp in that department - flavor is nice - crisp, crackery malts, followed by light honey pils maltiness, spicy hops, and a light mineral bite on the tail end - it’s a solid recipe that needs somewhat better execution and higher carbonation.

TXBadger (1512) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
An average pilsner, very easy to drink. Aroma is mainly wheat, a little pine note from the hops. Overall, very balanced beer, not much for complexity.

haddon90 (1490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark golden color with little to no head. Malty aroma with a hint of lemon zest. Light, crisp flavor with some lemon and malt. Not too bad of a beer to have on a nice, lazy, hot summer day.

CardsPackHawks (101) - Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2013
A straight forward pilsner. A clean, dry finish with some malt flavor. Not great, not bad, just average.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2013
A - Pours hazy golden with a frothy white head. No lacing. S - Wet grain, grassy hops, mineral yeast. T - Noble hops combined with a honey kissed, bready malt, some lemon and wet grass, clean grain on the back half. M - Creamy wet body turns semi-dry on the finish. A good drinker. This isn’t breaking the mold, smooth and quite tasty. Serving type: bottle 10-19-2011

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours golden with a bit of head. Aroma doesn’t have too much going. A bit of hay and overall floral tones. Flavor isn’t dense but very refreshing. A bit coarse hoppy finish but not overpowering. Very refreshing sessionable beer

Atom (1438) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2013
12oz bottle pours a clear golden/yellow with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, yeast, and a bready malt. Taste has a solid malt presence with bread and slight hops. Very clean and refreshing, not overly flavorful but an enjoyable Pils.

ContemplateBeer (1580) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Aroma of hay, light/moderate noble hops and very light pear. Appearance is lightly carbonated gold with nearly no head. Flavor of hay up front, light sweetness, and a light/moderate noble hop presence, leading to a dry finish. Palate is bubbly and fairly still. Solid.
