Vapid and underwhelming. No bitterness and no bite to it. Might as well get Miller or Bud for all the taste this offering has.

Aroma is light but with pleasant samplings of both hops and malt. Color is a gold/bronze with a moderate head that leaves nice lacing...very attractive in the glass. Flavor features mild but flavorful hops with even milder lightly sweet malt underneath. The overall consistency is disappointingly watery, an especial demerit for a pilsener. Even the light carbonation highlights the watery texture. Finish is very clean with the most mild trace dryness left behind...but there is no clearly identifiable source to the effect. Overall, the ingredients and balance are there, but in woefully short supply...There is simply not quite enough of everything in this brew. For the money, it is a toss-up with one of the better macro-brews.

(On tap, Atlanta) Very impressive. Hoppy, sweet, candied pils. Well-balanced with trailing honey/bitter palate. The hopping builds and kicks in on the back end. BTW - get one of their beer glasses, they’ve got a really good feel.

After rollerblading with the kids on a perfect pilsner day, I HAD to go get a sixer of these, luckily I found one on my second stop. This brew pours a clear sparkling light gold. The large frothy white head is tight, fully lasting and has stellar lacing. The clean nose is balanced. Sweet malty bread, toasted cereal, hay and flowers, perfumed hops, and a touch of resin. The flavor though not massively complex has astounding balance with a light sweet start, a middle that has a decent crisp acidity, and an average finish that is a nutty yeasty bittersweetness. I can’t make up my mind on the exceptional palate; at times it seems dry, at times it seems watery, and at times it seems creamy. I guess I’ll have to have another (4th) one and get back to ya on that. The body is light to medium, and the carbonation is soft. The finish feels very astringent and ever so slightly metallic. So this is what a great pilsner tastes like. I can quaff this brew like few others. This brew is enough to force me to change my philosophy toward - and lack of appreciation for - pilsners.

I liked this one and the bock at the brewery. The darks were good, but I guess with friends somehow you enjoy the lighter beers.

Typical pilsener with poor flavors--but fortunately weak in mouthfeel.

Good - but not the best - actually, pretty average as far as pilsners go.

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Bitter, but not as much as expected for a pils. Has the everpresent GB crispness and mildness.
