Shrink-wrapped 750mL swing-top growler generously shared by yourefragile. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stemmed tulip. Pours a nice light straw-yellow color with a fluffy white head and good retention. Really nice lacing on the sides of the glass as it goes down. The nose carries a good dose of grain and barley with some light floral and perfume notes. Really well-integrated. Light but fairly complex. Really impressive and on par with the best American pilsners I’ve had, which mainly consist of those coming very fresh from Victory on tap. Flavor starts with a nice grain character. Very smooth and soft. Comes in underneath floral-driven hops. Light earthiness and just a touch of spice. Light body and incredibly crisp. Ridiculously easy to drink. I could have easily taken down the growler and more by myself.

boxofrane (2387) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear straw yellow with a large white head that has excellent retention. The aroma is exactly classic with grass, straw, a touch of biscuit, quite floral. The taste is light, crisp, a touch of melon, and a light bitterness. Very good Pilsner.

Good grief this is off the hook. Not usually a pils fan, but this one is so light, so crsip, and so clean, there’s nothing to dislike here. Just an incredible take on the style, with a nice clean hop presence that makes you want to come back for a bit more juiciness and dry finishing. Yep, these guys know how to make beer. Honestly, if you’re a pilsner fan, this is what every single beer in the style should try to measure up to. Nothing is close.

TheEpeeist (3523) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2015
On tap at Bainbridge. Hazy gold with lacy spots. Nose is orange peel, grain and honey. Medium light with a soft buzz. Taste is melon, citrus peel and pith. Nice hoppy pils.

Damico (2870) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pours thick unclear golden juicy orange with a huge creamy lacy white head. Aroma and flavor of sweet and juicy orange hops balanced on a full thirst quenching body. It is more like a delicious single IPA with a balanced hoppy ending, absolutely love this beer on tap. Take a pilsner and make it Vermont influenced hoppily perfect.

bellco33 (467) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 29, 2015
On tap at Armsby Abbey: pours clear golden with a white foamy head. Aroma of German malts and typical pils hops. Taste is all of the best qualities of a pilsner slammed into your facehole. Nice clean malts, mildly sweet, with a tiny bite on the back to finish it off. Light body, tons of flavor, best pils I’ve ever had.

dresden (1137) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 20, 2015
Clearish golden with a nice white head. Light grassy hops, some slight perfumey, spicy noble hop. Flavours are honey, bread dough, nice grassy hops, lightly herbal. Very nice example of a style i tend to avoid these days.
