Pale yellow that’s mostly clear, a little white head, lots of lacing. Sweet kind of macro smell, corny, mixed with a hint of artificial grape. Thin mouthfeel and lively carbonation, somewhat astringent finish. Bitter pils flavor that’s fairly light, some distinct floral taste too. Decent for a pils.

On tap at Elysian Brewhouse, Seattle. Quite interesting Pilsener, maybe a little bit too bitter...

Cloudy golden color with big rocky white head. Strong floral aroma with additional hints of citrus, hops, and yeast. The flavors are an unusual citrus and yeast like. Somewhat stringent. An different sort of pilsner and just an average beer.

Gorgeous color of peach nectar--slightly hazy with wonderful cratered head that had peaks like an Alaskan ice floe. Aroma is of young fresh hops and very slight yeastiness--interesting but almost strident. This is aggressively hopped for a pilsener, but has plenty of body beneath the assertive top-end. I only wish the malt provided more of a flavor counterpoint to the prevailing bitterness. The finish is quite clean, mildly dry and with Saaz spice hints. An interesting beer with unusual characteristics for a pilsener. If the flavor balance were a bit more malt-biased, this would be a top contender.

Tap. Hazy yellow w diminishing white head. Min lace. Aroma was weak. Flavor of Urquel type pils with the minerals noticable. A bit of sweetness noticable early on but fading quickly into a nice tart bitterness that lasts into the finish. Just a touch viscous and creamy. Nice pils flavor for me. It hit the spot with a caesar salad on this hot day. If I’m in the mood for a decent pils, I will not hesitate to enjoy more.

Very good for the style. A very smooth german style pils.. not a lot of hops. I stll prefer the Urquell for the balanced hops, but this beer was very drinkable and had a nice unoffensive flavor. Not something to blow you away, but that is typical of the Pilsner style. A very nice selection.
