Smells like crushed malts. Straw-colored, but with very little head. It has a white pepper taste and a sharp hop finish, but not much else. It does have a crisp finish that cleans out your palate when it’s done. Overall it’s fine, but not the best example of a traditional pils.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2012
500ml bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow, stray-hued body with a tall, foamy, white head. Notable clarity. Sticky lacing deposit mark every sip, every gulp.

Smell: A big whiff of pilsner malts, with notes of grain, dough, and fresh honey. Touch of yeastiness. Light, zestful hoppiness.

Taste: Sweetish pils maltiness, with little hints of honey basted grains. In slides a yeasty dough flavor, but, then an addition of the clover honey. Snappy hop character, giving touches of spice and hop, with plenty of bitterness to balance things out and make the way for a dry, crispish finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It’s crisp, flavorful, pure, and delightful, offering up a satisfaction that seeps into your heart (and other internal organs).

nick76 (4145) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2012
The aroma is malty with a corn like malt and a light papery, grassy, and latex like hops. The appearance is pale yellow with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin but right for the style. Overall this is a good example of the style.

Pretty standard for a European pilsner. Crisp and bubbly with a light malt flavor. Good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

unclemattie (4039) - Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
.5L Swing-top bottle. BB 23.09.13. Pours clear yellow color. White fizzy head. Great lacing. Aroma of pils malts, grassy hops, light berries, loads of straw & hay. It smells like a CD-Pils! Tastes very clean & crisp. Light, slightly sweet malts, flavors of straw, some skunky hops in the end. I’d love to buy a full case of these. Good for a session. This beer is great! (3552)

Sweet honey and clover nose. Clear yellow, medium sticky head. Sweet lemony malt flavor finishing with thyme and grass. A little cardboard is detected, but otherwise a fairly typical European pilsner.

500 ml flip-top from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma is floral/grass - reminds of chamomile. Near med body. Flavor is decently bitter. Herb/grass - noble. Bitter enough to be way better than the macros.

hayduke (3164) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Found this on the cruise ship Celebrity Infinity on a cruise to Alaska. From the swing top bottle this poured a clear golden color with a fairly large white head and moderate lacing. The nose is caramel malts with some grassy hops. Medium and body with a clean mouthfeel. The flavor shows some lemon citrus and the finish is mildly bitter. Pretty much to style and quite drinkable.
