12 oz bottle. Straw color with a little carbonation. Quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of lemon, hay, grass, light spices. Lemon peel, cracker, coriander. Not very crisp, somewhat astringent.

Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is sour grain and some grassy notes but mild overall. Flavor straw with some bready notes and light grassy hops with decent balance. Light body with medium carbonation. All right.

On tap in the Slaughtered Lamb. Looks like a lager, light yellowish, lots of bubbles. Clean tasting, crisp, long bitter finish. Moreish, dangerous at 5.5%. I actually thought this was pretty good. Not life changing, but pretty good. Now there are a lot of crap beers being called ’pils’ for want of anything else, and a lot of them live in the pilsener category on this site. And pils isn’t the easiest thing to brew well. But I don’t get the angst people seem to have against the pilsener style, lots of beers on here seem to lose half a point minimum just for having pilsener in the name. But a properly made pilsener can be hugely refreshing - clean, hoppy, bitter, dry, what’s not to like? This certainly isn’t in the worst 40% of all beers worldwide.

Not bad, its a little to floral for a pilsner for me. Left hand brewing is one of my favorite.

Bottle. Pours clear golden yellow, fluffy white head with flam licks of lace. Pilsner is never my favourite style to smell, grainy. Crisp, non-offensive taste. A touch bitter.

Got the pilsner cone out for this one: aroma: definitively flowered. look: thin yellow lightly gold. palate: up front initially then diminishing. overall: all over it. nifty, tightly brewed.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Just pretty average with no outstanding features. Disappointing overall.

Poured a light yellow color with a thin head. Aroma is sweet with a little bit of corn. Slightly skunky as well. Taste has corn with a good amount of hops. Slightly sweet and syrupy in the finish. Lots of hay and earthy notes. Overall it’s ok, but a little too sweet.

Growler from the beer authority.

Light pour, white head, typical pilsner look. Grassy nose, some grain, a bit sour, a bit of cat piss. The flavor is quite bready with hops that balance rather than coming on too strong as they are wont to do in American pilsners. It’s not quite as bone dry as I’d like, but that’s a minor complaint. Nice light mouthfeel. I rather like this one, which is a pleasant surprise. It’s pretty spot-on for a pilsner so I’m not sure why it fares so poorly here.
