BMan1113VR (7880) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours with a pretty close to clear golden yellow hued body with a white head that is somewhat quick to fade. Aromas are of spicy, grassy, herbal czech hops, biscuity, bready malt, black pepper, herbal, very clean fermentation wise. Flavors are fruity, clove, melon, lightly sweet, quite a bit different fruit wise from the nose. Medium bitter, dry, hoppy, herbal, saaz like. Slightly white tea like, bitter, medium to high carb. Not bad, but it might be better if it was a bit more straightforward.

smith4498 (3114) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours clear golden color with white head. Floral aroma with grainy malt. Slightly sweet cereal malt flavor with some grassy and fruity notes. Medium body with crisp carbonation.

Emeister84 (1218) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Aromas of saltwater, pear, multigrain crackers, grassy hops. Clear yellow-orange, mostly lasting white head. Very dry, bright pear and hop flavors. Light bodied.

Shot (186) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours golden with a large fluffy white head. Aromas of hops and a hint of sweet fruit. Flavors are sweet malt, pear, slight nuttiness, and a subdued hop bite. Smooth, sweet and fruity. Rather disappointing pils. There’s not much that’s "piercing" about it--no crisp hop presence or flavor. Not a great version of a true Pilsner. Not bad...certainly fruity and mild...but to call this a Pilsner is not very accurate.

bp (815) - Queens, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle: pours golden amber with a thin white head, grainy aroma, taste is grainy, a very light tartness, light bitterness in the finish.

Light yeast and juicy pear aroma. Orange golden body and white head. Flavors of light hops and dry pear. Crisp and dry on the palate.
