A bottle of this fine beer came to me courtesy of Durhambeer!
Pours a very pale golden, perfectly clear, with a very small head.

The aroma is herbal and "robustly" hoppy. The malt sweetness while noticeable is either very low or hidden by the spicer & more herbal hop character.

The flavor is mineral-y & enjoyably bitter. The hops are well featured and of course very saaz-y with nice notes of grass, herbs, and mild fruit skin. The beer is only lightly sweet and very bright.

Pours golden body with no head. Malty cereal, bread aromas with very mild earthy hop notes. Taste is somewhat sweet, dry cardboard with hoppy bitterness.

Gatlinburg Walgreen’s bottle. Straight from the bottle after house work. Nice, hoppy pilsner. Not timid and not boring. Nice.

jcnielsen (1716) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Grainy, straw, earthy, malty aromas and flavors. Nothing special, but a pretty nice pilsner.

b3shine (4460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good; a very slightly hazy gold with white head. Smells of lager yet and mild hops and pale malt. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, and with more of a hop presence as well. Nice on the palate with a bit of snappiness. Enjoyable.

Aroma of yeast with a pale straw colour. A smooth taste, slightly bitter, with a watery bitter palate.

Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves respectable lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lightly soft. Good bready malt, light peppery flavor. Moderate bitter, minimal sweet. Tasty, bready, full-bodied pils.

Keg @ B Dubs. Deep gold with a tight white head. Pale malt, golden apple, grassy summer meadow on the nose. Nice personality. Super crisp apples and grassy hops. Slightly peppery. Lively hop accents. Mellow bread. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, super refreshing. Nice.

Braudog (5496) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Deep golden hue, nice initial head, and brilliantly bubbly. Sweet starchy aroma. Drinks with a firm corn-malt base and adds in a spank of Bohemian hops that dominate the finish. Not as snappy as the best of this breed, but definitely drinkable. (#5427, 2/6/2014)
