(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear light gold with no bubbles at all. Nose of water, funky gold raisin, earth, lager yeast, old grain. Taste of EArthy hops, mild bitterness, root plants, agave, weird. Light body but strangely syrupy.

draft at harpoon. pours very yellow with a nice white head. some citrus and grass notes on the nose. I didn’t get much on the tongue. Unfortunately you can’t drink a beer by smelling it so... Clean Finish. Nice start but a tad disappointed at the outcome.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Harpoon’s pilsner entry has the requisite grassy nose, and light straw color that the style is known for. Leaves a light brittle lacing. Nice light sharp hop bitterness. Slightly tart finish. Mouthfeel could use a bit more crispness. Still, a tasty well crafted rendition.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at "Remeke/Biggs" in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one pours a golden brew with a rapidly fading white head of foan and a grainy aroma. Tastewise, this is a fine beer for session use with a pleasing taste but, hey, this really is just another lawnmower beer... but a good one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From my brother: Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is of of grassy hops, with a tad of a malt backbone. Taste is crisp and doesn’t have that annoying sweet aspect that some Bohemian Pilseners have. Nice amount of bitterness form the Czech hop varietals. Refreshing and in my opinion well-balanced. I think that this is under-rated.
