Draught @ Bier-Bier. Aroma is sweet with grain, some grassy hops and peaches. Flavour has tropican fruits, grain and peaches. Finishes with grassy hops. Rather sweet and fruity for a pils. An "American pilsener."

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap@ BierBier. Pours unclear amber, thick white head. Aroma is malty, slightly fruity, cellar wibes. Flavor has grainy malt, hops, citrusy notes, strong bitterness. Hoppy pilsener but heavy and hard to drink at the same time. I prefer the traditional German pilsener over this anytime.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber, nice rocky head. Zingy carbonation, small bubbles. Aroma is sweet malt, light hopping, taste is light malt, bitterness balancing but in the background. Finish is just slightly bitter. Doesn’t have what I would call lager taste, nor Pilsner, but it is fairly close to a good Pilsner. Balance is quite nice and the beer is definitely easy to drink. Finish is fairly dry.

small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick light-yellow body. aroma: cereal, moderate hoppy, honey. if and ff: moderate sweet light bitter; average duration. palate: medium full body, oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic light alcoholic finish. Delicioso aroma frutado. Delicioso dulçor lembra mel, frutas, algo de cenoura e traz leve background alcoólico, escondendo bem os 9%. Melhor pilsener q já tomei até hoje, tanto em sabor como em paladar. Complexa sem sair do estilo.150 s

Enjoyed on tap at Quenchers in Chicago, IL at a show. Didn't take tasting notes for this one, but remember this being an average to above average pils. Nothing extraordinary, just good for what it is with more of a yeast flavor. Just decent.

Bottle at home from mchughs. Pours cloudy amber with wispy white head. Would prefer clear for a pils. Aroma is grass, bread, perfume floral hops. Flavour is orange, dusty malts with a mild bitter finish. Okay for style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear golden with a rocky, off-white head.
Aroma: Kinda fruity (berries), melanoidin-like maltiness, perfumed, grassy hops, floral, certainly a bit much for a Pils.
Palate: Medium body, relaxed carbonation.
Flav.: A bit of Pils grainy maltiness, still has a certain fruity, perfumed, floral character, reasonable grassy/green hops, not clean enough a Pils; dry with decent bitterness and a lightly perfumed/floral, grainy malt finish.
A bit too much going on for a Pils. Not too bad, just as a bber.

Aroma - honey, lemongrass, ceral bordering on bready. Appearance - hazy golden body, fluffy white head when agitated. Medium retention. Flavor - bready sweetness, sharp lemony hop bite, grassy and fruity round out the flavors. Palate - light bodied, crisp, medium carbonation. Overall - super drinkable, finish is crisp and clean, slightly citrusy too. A very good beer.

Bottle. Golden beer, small head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is grainy, with some nice fruity hops and a note of banana. Tasty, especially for a pilsner. Still, the body is too thin. Low fermentation has its limits.
