listed as "Promiscuous Pilsner", but otherwise appears to be the same beer. Decent pils with reasonable hoppiness in the finish. Easy to drink, but not remarkable,

On tap at the brewery. I really like this one. Itís not the best pilsner, but itís far from the worst. I find myself actually craving one every now and then (like right now as I type this). The expected pilsner flavors and nuances are all there. Very drinkable, this would make a good session beer. I like to order this when I just want something to not overpower my senses or make me think too much.

On tap at The Hideout Brewpub. Straw yellow with next to no head. Aroma of sweet malt, grassy hops and notes of bready malt. Taste is pretty much the same with a crisp finish. Pils arenít my thing but this one was a shade better than most IMO.

tap at the brewpub last summer - Pours mostly clear gold. It has a very mild aroma of hops and maybe some bready malt. The flavor is similar with gentle hops bitterness and a light, refreshing body. Nothing special but itís okay.

On tap at brewpub, pours a very light golden color with aroma that is very sweet and a hint of spices, the taste is malty with nothing to rave about. Cool brewpub though!

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange-yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, jam, and sweet malt. Flavor again is sweet and jam-like. It actually is a little juice-like in flavor. Drinkable and alright. 6/4/6/4/13 [3.3/5]

Iím an IPA drinker and like to downshift to this beer when I get too little blood in my alcohol stream. Nice golden color with mild hops and malt.. does not suck.

on tap at The Hideout. pours slightly hazed gold with white head. not much ithe nose but a grainy note. flavor has a very light and clean malt and crisp hop character. seemed almostlike a light beer to me. not much hop character to this pils.
