Mmmm.. Nice and refreshing. Brillant clarity. Big creamy head. Smells of saaz. A little sweeter than most of the imports but has a nice hop flavor.

Very Crisp, and a bracing hop bitterness to start. Nice bitterness throughout, actually. It lacks the softness one usually finds in European Pilsners, but still and interestin interpretation of the style.

on tap - barley’s taproom - asheville nc - pale golden straw color with a slight whispy head. aroma is spicy with hints of pale malt - clean smelling. taste is very dry, crips and refreshing. very good hoppy finish - leaves you wanting more. one of the better new pilsner’s i’ve had recently. good spiciness to the hop profile. a bit of fizziness on the palete was the only real drawback.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Draught at Fishmonger’s Seafood Market & Restaurant in Durham, NC. Clear straw color with big creamy white head. Nose is of honey, butter, and sprucy hops. Dry and slightly bitter with a hint of honey and grain. Very crisp and appropriately carbonated for a pilsner. Very good for style.

It tastes fresh. And furthermore, there is none of that pilsener-like flavoring that I find prevalent in US pilseners. Crisp finish. Little bit weak on hops, but solid effort and worthy of a second beer.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 2, 2005
On tap at Barley’s Taphouse in Asheville. Pale yellow in color with a white fizzy head. Grassy with a touch of mango (?!). Certain banana esters. Fun pilsner.

Not bad at all for a the style. A little lighter on the hops than I like my pilseners. The malts were very pleasant. This was a very crisp beer, a good one to initiate your non-connoisseur friends into the world of microbrews of wnc with.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2007
On tap at Porter’s, Raleigh. A fine looking pilsner with a fairly robust nose but too little in the way of hop character in the body. Fine sessionable brew, but compares poorly to Foothills.

Draft, Barley’s Taproom, Asheville NC. Very light, even for a Pils, straw color with impressive foamy white head. From there on it’s yeast, yeast, yeast. Smelled like bread, tasted like bread, mostly sourdough. Medium to light body, fairly fizzy, and very crisp and dry on the finish. Had a few grassy, wheaty notes but lacked the light citrus I tend to enjoy in Pilsners, but this is ok when the beer is named Goldenrod. Interesting, though the strong yeast flavor was too much along with pizza!
