On tap at Herkimer Pub & Brewery. Hazy yellow with a thin off-white head. Aroma of noble hops, corn, malt and grains. Taste of grains, sweet malt, mild corn, noble hops and light fruit.

Tqp. Very slightly hazy light orange pour with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of lemon zest and wheat. Light palate. Some grass, wheat, and a touch of hops on taste. Pretty darn good for the style.

A decent pilsner. Not as good as the Czech pils, the hops are much lighter and I do not think this gets to a Bohemian pilsner. Still, very drinkable, not complaints really as it is a solid beer.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2010
On draught at the Herkimer brewpub in uptown Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear pale golden yellow colored brew with a fast dissipating white head that leaves behind a thin ring. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of grassy hops and some lemon zest. Taste is light to medium bodied with flavors of golden grain malt with some grassy hops and a touch of honey. Finish is semi-dry with a short lived grassy hop bitterness then a crisp finish with no aftertaste.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2009
A light color with faint head. A malty aroma that was pleasant, despite lacking the hoppy aroma promised. The body was a bit more on par. A smooth malty body with a light bitterness and a distinct hop character (saaz???).

Draft @ brewpub. Pours is golden with a lightly sticky lacing. Aroma is crisp, lemon-y, with a strong herbal, German hoppiness. Right on the money I say. Its very clean and sharp. Taste is there but there is just a little hint of diacetyl but it doesn’t interfere too much with the other pils aspects. Has a good bitterness to the flavor. Very dry at the end. Just neet to get rid of that diacetyl a little more.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Pours bright gold/yellow with no head. Lightly malty on the nose with a definite Saaz presence. Mildly hoppy and malty on the palate. A hint of bright hops on the finish was enough to give it a bit of flavor. Very drinkable pils.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Light, buzzing hops as the main taste. Some weak malts come into play, but never leading. In a word: drinkable.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Aroma: Light grainy maltiness with a nice dose of saaz hops. A noticeable sulphur note, as well. Appearance: Light golden in color and clear. White head was small and foamy with decent retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Grainy maltiness upfront gives way to a floral hop flavor. Bitterness was just enough to cleanse the palate. Finishes crisp and clean. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: A good, uncomplicated pils. Nice flavor and drinkable.

1st, they have to pour this in something other than a shaker. No real head builds up and it makes it look really uninteresting. The flavor is much better though, a nice bitter punch with a clean malt backbone.
