Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Serving: Draft. Appearance: Light gold color with a small, foamy, white head. Aroma: Light nose with notes of grass and a touch of grain. Flavor: On the tasteless side with notes of malt, grain, and grass. Rather unspectacular. Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a light, watery mouthfeel and a medium-short finish. Overall: Skip this one. There are much better Pils out there to be enjoyed. Not recommended.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Sampled at the 13th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Golden orange, white cover. Clean grassy and malt aroma. Taste is lightly fruity, grassy, clean pils.

drfabulous (3860) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 27, 2009
On draft. Clear crisp pilsner. Hard style to say yeah or nay to since I don’t care much for it. But for a pilsner, nice.

nickd717 (3473) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Golden-yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is grain, pilsner malt, and grassy hops. Flavor is bready pale malt and grain as well as some mild grassy hops. Palate light and crisp. Decent pils, but not too exciting.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Tap at ACBF. Aroma of wood, berries, lemon, herbs, leafy hops. Flavor has many of the same notes with lots of resinous bitterness. Juicy and crisp. Powerful and luscious pils.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2009
A solid pilsener. Lightly dry and crisp, typical pilsener flavor, but a little more full. Light grass and creaminess. Some biscuits and bread as well. Super drinkable. Not too light or watery.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Tap at ACBF 2009: Pale golden with a white film. Dry crackery pils aroma with a mild grassy character. Crisp body and a nice dry flavor. Crackery and very clean- lean but firm with solid saaz zest on the back. What a pils should be. Nice.

On draft at ACBF09. Pours a clear light yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of wheat and light fruits. Flavor is sweet initially with a light wheat and bready finish. Very refreshing and a good pilsener! 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7.5)

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
On tap. A few times around NC, but the best was at the Brewpub. Pours a nice golden with a lasting white head and some lace. Aroma is lightly nutty- good big doughy and fresh bready malts and a nice not too strong herbal and floral hop note. Hops get a bit spicier in the flavor which is nice to cut through the pilsner doughiness, and fresh bread- ok nice green hops, and awesome floral and herbal hop tones. Finishes crisp and clean. Super fresh- a couple other places the beer seemed a bit too creamy, less crisp and more doughy- wheat messy and other things going on with their tap lines. Fresh at the brewpub this was awesome!
