bottle. Pours a clear bright golden yellow, fizzy inch of white head that clears to leave a nice layer throughout. Aromas of lightly spicy hops and dry toast. Flavors follow the nose- nicely balanced between sharp but non-aggressive spicy hops, smooth bread, and some dry yeast notes. Palate is clean and crisp. Overall a pretty good Pilsner- especially considering the low price.

Massive carbonation in this harvest gold ber with a half inch of foamy wheat head. Crisp clean pilsner nose with a decent sweet malty body. The malt sweetness was a too high and detracted from an otherwise solid pils. A slight metallic flavor on this as well.

smells like a standard german pilsner to me... pour is pretty standard. great golden color with a nice white head. the beer tastes pretty clean to me. lightly sweet upfront and a really nice finish... more hoppy than any pilsner I’ve drinken and not as many sour or funky notes like i get with the imported pilsners. I could do this again. Only $6.00 / 6 pack at trader joe’s. good deal!

Bottled, thanks Tiki Taylor. Pours a hazy deep yellow color that smells hoppy but it is actually pretty light in taste with its fruityness.

12oz bottle. Glear gold, white head. Sticky honey malt nose with some light corn and fuesal notes. Light sweetness of front of corn and sugared grains, somewhat sticky and oily. Lacks definite crispness, sits flabby on the tongue, and develops a flavor of olive oil and corn.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear yellow-gold pour, aroma of bready pilsner malt and floral hops. Flavor follows aroma, hops are up-front and fresh, a nice kick that takes this brew up a notch to something interesting. Refreshing and drinkable, well made and different.
