pours a crystal clear golden amber with a white head. aroma is straw, light citrus, grain, lemongrass, and a little dusty. taste is cornmeal, some malt, and light grain. light body with a frothy mouthfeel. very light & easy to drink. never really been much of a fan of pilseners, but if you are you might enjoy this. i imagine it’s ten times better fresh from the tap.

bhensonb (14090) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle. Grain and grass aromas. Brassy color with a white head that went down leaving spotty lace. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Good dose of grassy hop, and the grain is not distressing. The finish is definitely bitter. Decent drink.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Kind of boring... Pours a very clear yellow/golden color with very few rising bubbles and a huge white head. Aroma is dry and earthy/herbal. Flavor is dry, with some citrus and a lot of herbal flavor. 12 oz. bottle.

Bottle. Pours clear golden, thin white head with lacing. Grassy, herbal hop aroma, light grain and lemon peel. Bready flavor, slightly sweet, strong oily bitterness throughout. Good full palate.

kidmartinek (4664) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Weak malty aroma. Clear yellow in the glass. Pours with a lot of foam/fuss. Taste is mild, earthy, and bland. Only a tad skunky. Nothing special here.

gam (3909) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2008
Though not a top drink I found it to be a good session pilsener with a fresh opening to this fairly mellow pils,nice bitterness,hops not strong in flavour,colour a nice yellow and good lacing after a medium head.Slight nuttiness and earthy mushroom flavour finish dry and sweet ,I liked it.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 11, 2008
Sampled at noohn, Basel. The nose is very strange with hints of rotten pineapple. Maybe the glass hasn’t been washed properly. Earthy hops. Slightly sour with a hint of lime. Rather bitter. Nice lacing. Very dry bitter finish.

Older bottle, (B? 06 date code). Aroma a little skunky at the lid pop but clears to a cleaner mellow acceptable olfactory in the glass. Ubiquitous pale yellow. Straw, pilsner and some mild hoppy bite. Friendly for the most part, somewhat reminiscent of Lionshead light. Probably could pass as a pale lager. I thought budweiser was the king of beers. A mild bitter lingering pilsner bite on the finish. How about when brewers use superlatives ’like king or highest’ in their descriptions?
