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.

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.

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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of grain and lemony citrus hops. The taste is grain, citrus and a bit of grass. Medium bodied.

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.

Bohemian Pilsner pours a clear golden color. The head is short and very white, fades fast. The taste is malty up front and the finish is dry and crisp. There is a sourness in the aftertaste.

Pilsner isn’t always my first choice but I wanted to try this seasonal beer from Harpoon. It was as advertised: clean and crisp. It was a little more hoppy than I expected but it was quite nice on a hot and humid summer night.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a clear yellow-gold color with a huge foamy white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was crisp and bitter grassy, floral and perfumey hops. The flavor was tangy, tart and perfumey with notes of Sweettart candies and artificial sugar. The finish was long, tart and bitter with lingering artificial sugar. Light body. Eh.
