Had at Autumn Brew Review 2013, copper grain/malt aroma and taste, OK for a Pils.

Draft at Indeed during RBSG. From notes. Fruity and surprisingly light. Enjoyable but not super special. These guys had much better beers that day.

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2013
Draught at Republic in Minneapolis. Touch of pasture, hay in the nose. Medium straw color, with a lone stream of carb rising. Harsh grassy initial / mid has a moderate maltiness and some sourness / finish goes to nice light hop traces. Medium body. A pleasant, light pils. Nothing so special, but well made all the same

On tap at Republic. Definitely agree with the one-time character that is described below. Aromatics are light piney hops. Appearance is light golden rod with wispy white head. Taste hits very similar to an ESB, which I like. Lots of bitterness up front and lemon and grapefruit peel on the backend and linger. Palate is light and bubbly. Overall, tasty!

Tap at brewery. Pour is a hazy yellow with white head. Hoppy, not really a pils but enjoyable.

portableparty (2293) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a gold yellow and a little hazy with a soft white head. Aroma has pilsner malt and noticeable sterling hops. Taste is more the same with this really drinking like a hoppy lager or even a pale ale. Nice beer.

Atom (2171) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2013
On tap at brewpub, pours a hazy yellow gold with a small white head. Aroma of resinous dry citrus hops. Taste similar to aroma dry crisp resinous hops. This is about as far from a Czech style Pils as you can get, this is a one dimensional pale ale at best. This wasn’t bad by any means. It reminds me of how their California Common turned out, over hopped with no flavors of the style. If your attempt at a Pils ends up a Pale Ale call it what it is. This a failure of a Pilsner, which turned into a one dimensional pale ale.

Tap at the brewpub. Pale yellow-gold pour with a small clingy white head. Citrusy nose and taste. Clean. Bold example of the style.
