Decent pils. Nothing special to see here. Move along. Tastes no different to me than most beers. It's okay. -optemoz

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Clear gold. Fairly dry and crisp and a touch hoppy, but a slight off flavor, maybe diacetyl keeps it from peak.

chinchill (1810) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2013
12 oz undated bottle served in a lager glass. This beer pours with a towering, sudsy, white head over a clear golden body with plenty of visible carbonation. The aroma is just as expected for this style, with a clear note of Saaz hops. Flavor: also a rather typical pilsner, with, perhaps. a touch more earthy hop flavor than the average Czech version. Nonetheless, this is only about average bitterness for a pils. Medium-high carbonation but less crisp than optimal. Recommended for pilsner fans.

hman43 (331) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Decent hops smell. The head is light and fluffy. It is clear light golden in color. It has a decent taste and is overall a decent pilsner.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was a touch of biscuit malt notes, earthy and floral hops. Flavor was malty, floral hops. Touch of bitterness and refreshing. Drinkable, but largely forgettable.
