3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lemony visual through the glass, very light piss, with a fluffy and lightweight head. The grassy notes are strong, lightly lemon and toasted malts,but the bitter is overwhelming in the afterward. I enjoyed my first few swallows, thought that the sweet of the Pilsner was actually going to be on that I enjoyed, but find that the bitterness is too much for me. The palate isnít bad, but a bit thin for such a biting finish.

I was initially excited by seeing this on the shelf. But after opening, Im kind of disappointed. Pours light straw yellow with a white wisp. Aroma is grassy, lemon and light citrus hop. Taste is slightly astringent, lemon, grassy malts with sharp citrus hop bitterness.

From a bottle. Yours a light, clear yellow. Makes a big, foamy head, so pour slowly. Some lacing. Head lasts a long time. Smells of yeast, hops, and bready cereal. Grassy notes, too. Chewy like a Chardonnay. Tastes of hops and bread. Good standard bearer for a pils. I like the crisp taste without the typical pils sweetness. Complex hop taste rounds it out.

Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a very pale yellow color with a medium sized fluffy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was artificial grape and perfume. The flavor was artificial grape, perfume and was fairly dry. Long grape and perfume finish. Light body. Pretty awful.

Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma of citrusy pine. Taste is light crisp with the typical pils bite in the finish. A good example. Love firestone walker.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Joenugs. Nose is very grassy and a light doughy cracker character to it. pour is crystal clear with a medium light white head that dissipates quickly. Taste is very hop forward. Lots of grass and a firm hop bitterness. crisp dry finish. moderate carbonation. very nice. lacks a little of the cattiness I normally get. Think that from the hallertau hops tho

Good stuff. Iím not crazy about pilsners, but in my quest to broaden my horizons I canít pass up a FW beer. Grassy aroma with some bready biscuity malts. Fresh smelling. Dank as hell. At least to me. Probably from the dry hopping. Taste is dry and hoppy with that same malty sweetness. Very refreshing. This actually made me excited about the pilsner style. Iíve had urquell and other of the quintessential pilsners, but this is an awesome American take on it and thatís cool to me. Good stuff.

On tap at Issac Newtons. Aroma is crisp grass, dry champagne, and bread. Pours light blonde with nice crispy bubbles. Taste is just perfect with some grassy hops, light citrus zest, brut champagne, and a slight bread crust presence. Clean but zesty mouthfeel. Just a perfect pilsner. I loved this one and will gladly crush more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in a hotel in Las Vegas. Hazy bright yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma of crispy citrus hops, slightly sweaty, spicy and a bit of German yeast. Flavor is quite bitter, with the magnum hops being quite prominent and lingering for quite a long finish. Slightly unbalanced, but still refreshing.
