CanIHave4Beers (3198) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 6, 2011
State week month, week 1 Oct 2nd - 8th. State: Arizona.

This and many others generously sent to me by a gentleman of great esteem in Scottsdale. Thanks Dave!

The beer pours a golden color with a small loose head that leaves very good lace on the glass. The beer has a lot of effervescent bubbles.

The beer has a good dose of bright malt aroma matched with a light hay character and fruity hops.

The flavor is really on the hoppier side of what we’ve come to know as "American Pilsner" There are some nice peachy notes with a bit of honey. The hops provide a mild bitterness that doesn’t fully match up to the general sweetness of the beer.

Overall this is pretty enjoyable.

marcus (6365) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle courtesy of beerboxer. Pours clear golden with a thin white head and a floral aroma. There is a hearty light malt flavor with some carbonation and dry bitter finish. Not bad for a pilsner.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle at the Rusty Spur in Scottsdale, AZ. Clear light sunflower pour supporting a thin white head. Mild grassy aroma. Not much in the flavors to make you sip and take notice. A bit of toasted cereal here, a sprinkling of lemony citrus there. Texture a tad thin but not unusually so for a Pilsner. Weak finish. Much better than any evil macro conglomerate swill but far below the really good craft Pilsners like Trumer, Victory Prima or Avery Joe’s.

Thanks mom! Bright gold, sticky heavy creamy white head. Rich sweet nose with notes of orange and lemon. Full bodied malt backbone, light roast, long lingering mild earthy hops. Very nice beer.

wedgie9 (1843) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Tasted on 5/19/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at BevMo Tempe. Pours clear golden with an average white head that slowly recedes to a thin but even layer of lace. The nose is hay malt, somewhat nutty, and a bit of spicy, earthy, and herbal hops. The flavor has a hint of sweetness, but overall, tastes the same as the nose with some hay and grass along with earthy, spicy, and herbal hops, and a nice hint of bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a long herbal and lightly bitter hops finish.

lucklys (62) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Being inspired by the falls, the color of this brew is a light golden color with honey-yellow accents. Once poured, it formed a nice thick, bright head fed by the early explosion of carbonation in the form of large bubbles that seemed to expand as the seconds ticked on. They reminded me of soap bubbles, swirling with colors. There was no haze to cloud the liquid, rather it was more clear and watery-thin. --- There were a few different scents in this one, all of which worked very well together to form a crisp aroma. First was a delicious sweetness followed by a malty caramel, then an infusion of light spicy hops and a twang of saccharine yeast. Mostly simple, but still quite delicious in my nose. I’m trying to get back to embracing the candidness of the brew, rather than the clutter. --- I gulped the first bottle (poured into the snifter) down fairly quickly without registering how easy it was to drink. The tastes that lingered on my tongue were very reminiscent of the fragrance, powered by the same sweetness, which turned out to be more grain-like in my mouth (not to be confused by grainy as it was actually quite smooth). Along with the sweet grain, there were also notes of honey, caramel, and spicy hops that were further exacerbated by the fabulous carbonation. The same carbonation also heavily contributed to the light body, keeping it from tasting watered-down or as thin as it looked in the glass. The biggest difference between the smell and the taste was that with the smell being so crisp and spring-like, I expected the mouth feel to be the same; instead, it only felt like it wanted to be crisp, but was holding on to something that kept it from being more quick and refreshing. --- Of course, that’s not to say that this American Pilsner wasn’t refreshing, because it absolutely was and by the end of my second and last bottle, I wished that I had bought a few more. This is a beer best enjoyed with chicken or fish, nothing too heavy, although I’m sure it would work just as well washing a juicy medium-rare steak down as it would a thick fillet of whitefish on a bed of butter pasta. I would consider this a spring beer, but again, as I am really fond of it, I might consider this a spring to fall beer, just to keep me cool all summer.

Pours deep gold with thin white head and some lacing. Notes of hay and yeast. Balanced taste, though a tad weak.
