TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
Why did I pay $8 for this in the San Fran airport? Pours golden yellow with thin head. Mild malty aroma. Fairly awful cornish flavour. Boring and derivative.

This beer taps me on the shouder for being a authentic pils. Aroma is not very impressive, but the style usually doesn’t usually do that. Looks pretty good in the glass, high carbonation. Smooth with a good touch of hops, but it is a little lower on the bitterness. Overall it is done very well, I just think they toned down on the hops to make it more appealing to the general public.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Serving: Draft. Appearance: Deep gold color with a frothy white head. Aroma: Light malt and floral notes. Flavor: Crisp and clean but a little heavy with the malt. Good dose of malt sweetness paired with grassy, spicy hops. Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short finish. Overall: I think this one is a bit underrated. This is one of the more solid examples of a pilsner I’ve had lately.

Full golden. Heavy skunky pils aroma. Full malty taste and muthfeel. Good body without being too heavy.

boto (1890) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Draught in Washington DC location: This one pours a clear golden color. There was a big white head on it that left a lot of lacing. The aroma is decent, but milder. It is earthy, with some malts and a hint of hops. The taste is good also. A touch malty and earthy, but needs more hops.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 10, 2009
Draught at San Francisco Airport. Dark gold with a large foamy head. Not much of an aroma, just a touch metallic. A dry palate, but a bit thin. Grainy malt flavour with just enough hop to make it interesting.

BeerBitch12 (16) - , Oklahoma, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Drank from the bottle...not much of an aroma...light, clear golden color, very simple, hoppy taste, with a hint of sweet...not much to matter. Light and refreshing without having to commit. No flavors in particular come to mind. It was hot out, so it was refreshing.

Location: We have a bunch of these in the metro DC area, I think I’ve prob been to 3 of them, including the one in "Downtown Rockville" that I visit pretty often, I’ve had this one on tap there

Overall Impression: Very standard/average/(Insert adjective here) Pils
