Poured a golden yellow hazy color with three fingers of frothy white head. Lots of layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention all the way down.
Smelled cereal, sourdough bread, honey, grassy hops, wheat, corn, bubblegum, light citrus and lemon.
Tasted similar to the nose, but a bit stronger. Fairly dry malts. Honey, sourdough, bread, grass, corn and faint booziness.
Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Semi-abrupt finish.
This was a very good pilsner. I’d have it again for sure if I was in the mood.

Crisp and dry pilsener, pale golden with small foamy head. Taste is grain,mild hops. Lingering finish leaves mouth dry.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
one of the best American pilsners I’ve had. Haven’t checked to see if my rating reflects it, but this one is pretty nice. Not overly hoppy. It pours very pale with a thin head- so much so that it could be mistaken for a Budweiser at first glance. Fortunately the comparison stops there. Not too far from a true pilsner.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from Whole Foods. Pours a light gold, nice head, very slight head. Aroma is hoppy and grassy, with a bit of grain. Flavor is a match. Sort of a German style pils in the hopping, but has just a bit of lingering sweetness on the finish that is more Czech in nature. Thoroughly enjoyable, love a good pils.

Tap. Clear yellow pour with a white froth of foam. Toasted malt and light bitterness in the aroma. Taste is clean, dry malt with grain and moderate bitterness. Clean mouthfeel. Okay for the style.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale see-through yellow. Abundant carbonation holds a full white head on this pilsner. It smells like nutty and minerally oil. It has a harsh bite and tastes like a nice hotel lobby smells. INW, clean, but chemmy.
