Pale straw with good white fluffy head. Lightly toasty malt aroma with bits of honey and lemon. Really fresh and bright lemon and toast flavor. Melon and lime. Really nice light body, lively carbonation and active bitterness in the finish. Awesome pilsner.

Leighton (13583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours lightly unclear yellow-gold with a foamy, white head.the nose has lots of dry biscuits, straw, some cereal grains. Light-medium sweet flavor with great balance, some lovely biscuity pale malts, white bread, touches of lemon rind, straw, sourdough bread. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Balanced finish, good pale bready sweetness with just enough crisp biscuits and bitter straw. Undertones of melon and lemon meringue. An absolute delight. Excellent balance, great layers for a pils. Superb.

_angst_ (3353) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours very hazy pale golden with a rather thin creamy offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny malty and herbal with crackers, straw, lemon zest, lemon balm and hints of biscuits. Taste is bitter, slightly malty and herbal with crackers, biscuits, moist grass, lemon balm, orange zest and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, slightly sparkling and light bodied. Finish is bitter, slightly malty and herbal with crackers, biscuits, moist grass, lemon balm and lemon zest. Wow! Chewy cracker malts and herbal hoppyness. The perfect pilsner?

pours a slighty hazy gold color. It has that sweet light bready malt aroma you’d expect from a typical pilsner as well as a fruity tartness.. i want to see it’s green apple of some kind. Flavor is quite nice. While I can’t put my finger on anything too specific, I’ll say it’s taste is a good blend of sweet, bitter, and spicy, and tart.

2014 bottel, freshly drunk on 2/19/14
Wonderfully conditioned pour leaves the light sediment behind to produce a sparkingly clear, deep golden body with a medium sized white head that recedes fairly quickly.
Spicy hops in the nose show off fresh hay, and light minerals. Sprig of tartness seems very authentic; freshly baked sourdough that I associate with the best examples of the style. Not the strongest aroma, but what’s there is pretty near perfect to-style. No alcohol or flaws.
A peppery, but not heavy carbonation washes over the palate spreading the rich but nicely attenuated pils malt and crisp, peppery, herbal hops. Very low bitterness, but enough to balance the malts, leaving some lightly sweet honey notes lingering. Medium body, broken up by the carbonation, soft texture. Love the sourdough notes. Could drink ALOT of this. Great, as Jack’s pilsners always are. Would like just a little bit more body and maltiness, but this is sublime.

Very solid, drinkable and clean pilsener. Probably the second most true to style, by the book beer that Jack’s makes. Really tasty, I’d buy this a decent amount if I lived up there.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours an unfiltered pale yellow with a big white head that fades some but never dissipates totally. The aroma has a nice toasted malt and vaguely spicy or herbal feel to it with a clean, grassy hop note. Medium body. The taste is much like a pilsener should be with the added herbal bite and a clean crisp finish. Worth a higher grade.

gnoff (8218) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2014
12 fl oz bottle, thanks to _angst_ (and Emma). Sampled on September 18, 2014. Marked 5.1% ABV and 35 IBU (OG 12.5 Plato). No clearly indicated BB date as far as I can find.
Clear honey to golden color, fairly big, fluffy, lasting, nice looking white head. Clean, malty, a tad bit malty sweet, light grainy and bready, toasty scent. Malty, fresh, smooth, a little bit sweet, herbal hoppy, light fruity, grainy taste. Herbal, grassy, malty aftertaste. Very fresh and clean indeed. To the low side CO2, makes for a rather smooth soft body and mouthfeel though, but I’d enjoy it more if it had a bit more CO2 still. Medium to medium high bitterness, but it is masked by (likely) noble hops and a balance to the beer, perhaps brewed with soft water? Very nice, highly drinkable, very glad I got a bottle to bring home and drink as well. Cheers!
Turns rather hazy when I pour the last of the bottle in the glass as well. The drink turns even more fruity with that pour too, still a wonderful beer.

rafael52 (212) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Barwa: jasnozłota, zmętniona.
Piana: jasnokremowa, dość obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko opada.
Zapach: dość intensywny aromat chmielowy, głównie nuty ziołowe i łodygowe, w tle lekka nuta słodowa.
Smak: piwo dość wytrawne i smukłe jednak jest również wyraźnie aksamitne, w smaku także wyczuwalne nuty chmielowe, goryczka jak na deklarowane 35 IBU wydaje się niska o ziołowym charakterze.
Wysycenie: średnie, jak na ten styl mogło by być trochę wyższe.
