3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, dated about 2 months ago. Excellent now and I bet it was just killer fresh. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a nice white head. Classic pils aroma -- bready and lightly grassy, solid hop notes. Taste is very clean with round bitterness and distinctive malt. Pretty full-bodied for the style with a nice, long finish. Stylin’!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours lightly cloudy straw with small white head. Aroma is super bready and spicy with lightly toasted grain, orange peel, and earthy and floral hops. Awesome. Taste is smooth and bready with citrus peel, earthy hops, and soapy piney hop finish. Up there with Prima. Great stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Aroma seems grassy/bready, but not light like so many. Med body. Flavor is bready, but so hoppy it suggests an Imperial Pils. As ever, hops save the day.

Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours clear yellow with an attractive white head and a marvelous floral aroma. There is a crisp clean pilsner malt flavor with excellent hopping. Though not a fan of Pilsners, I really like this one.

Clean, balanced and super yummy. Near medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"A rather untraditionally full bodied pilsner. Dry bready and a bit sweet, with some grassy hops and hay and a slight tartness to make things interesting. Not bad. "

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Yellow, low carbonation. Almost no head; very dry with lots of hops, and much more like something from the Czech Republic and Germany. Very good.

Hazy blonde, nice thick head, has a herbal, fruity, sweet, richly malty, only subtle herbal hops, just fat malt. More a helles, but a good one. Bit yeasty, too, so I guess more of an U Bier.
