Clean and crisp pilsner. Pours a gold color with not much in the nose, and a light lacing. Has a descent clean taste that goes down smooth. Good, but I will probably never get it again.

Pours slightly hazy straw with OK white hat. Smells is kind of sweet, cookies or maybe banana. This is a fairly mild pils, with some grassy hops. Not really spicy to me. Drinkable, at least.

Bright, crisp pale yellow color with two finger cotton head. Nice carbonation. Nose is grain and inviting lager aromas. Taste is nice sweet malts with some soft hops...good mouthfeel.

lb4lb (2583) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2008
light to medium gold colored with a lasting white head. Very active carbonation. Smell is sweet grainy malt. Simple but nice. Taste is sweet and malty, with very little yeasty flavor and a balancing bitter zing to it. Ends somewhat sweet. Nice body, and bubbly mouthfeel. Simple and refreshing. Nice pilsner and great for a warm day like today.

greedycheater (80) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Looks like a pilsner with a bit of wheat in it. Pale, muddled, golden yellow with light carbonation, a small head that dissipates quickly and thin lacing. A citrusy, hoppy, floral nose that is sharp and bitesthe nose. Flat and dry with a clean but bitter finish with hints of apricot.

Pours a clear pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is pilsner malts, grain, and peppery hops. Flavor is grainy, malty, and a bitter peppery finish.

idbowman82 (62) - Painesville, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Golden yellow pour with very small head. Aroma is very subdued, with little more than hops. Flavor is mild, herby and grassy, with its fair share of malt. Very boring to drink but with a good pils finish--not to sharp, but definitely not heavy. Very much reminded me of some of the "better" macros. Nothing special.

Pale weak yellow pour with minimal head, this is simply a boring, watered-down pils with a fancy label from an otherwise good brewer. avoid.

I found this to be an extreamly sessionable pilsner. It wasn’t too heavy but it wasnt watered down and left the correct aftertaste in your mouth to make you say wow that was a good traditional pilsner. Not as refined as some but it is a micro-brewed pilsner not from the rheinheitsgebot.
