Unremarkable brew. Light hops and corn dominate both the aroma and the flavor. Appearance was typical for a pilsener. Would write more, but it wouldnít serve a purpose

Out of the sampler box of four I felt that this was the strongest example that is "on style". Maybe it was my recent trip to the Czech republic and all the tasty Bohemian Pilsners I tasted there but this was spot on for an American pilsner. This critter was quite nice as a drinkin with your neighbor brew. Hopiness is just a skoash above the norm for a pilsner of perfection but the limited lenght body needed someth On another note I was a bit disturbed that out of the "12 pack sampler" there were only two of these and six sawtooth ales. Do the math, its not hard. 6 of those and two of each of the other three. Dropping a line to LH on that one.

Clear golden color, moderate head with minor lacing. Aroma of Saaz and Grass, Very drinkable and smooth, especialy if you are a fan of Saaz hops. I loved it.

Blah! What a sublime pilsener. Pour was a light gold with no head and no bubbles. Aroma was almost nothing. I blew my nose and tried again...nothing; so itís not my allergies. Taste was a semi carbonated mix of corn, grain and grass. Nothing to remember.

Bottle from Papago. Pours golden clear color with a nice little pillowy white head, retention ok, fades to a thin covering after a while, lacing decent. The aroma was grass, bread, honey, grapes, floral notes. The flavor followed the aroma, very similar to what I remember the Konig Pilsner to be while in Germany. Body is light, moderate at best, perhaps even watery, yet this thing was just what I want in my pilsners (although, admitedly, I donít often want a pilsner). Nice, job, LH!

Not that good, but noticeably better than some other pilseners and pale lagers. No hop flavor, but it had the typical light grassy and mildly bitter finish of most pilseners. Drinkable.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Pretty good beer. Some head and some lace. Well carbonated, maybe even a bit too much. light gold color. Detected a hint of elemental sulfur in the nose. Long bitter finish. Even a touch of citric acid at the bitter end. Still... a drinkable beer. Had this at the Bodega Brew Pub, La Crosse, WI USA

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - JUL 13, 2007
NorCal tasting Jul 07 - I found this beer to be incredibly quenching and for a pilsner, itís quite the tasty one. Aroma is clearly Saaz hops with a grassy character that just makes the mouth water. A nice malt presence also helps this beer too. Appearance is golden yellow with a nice one finger head without much staying power. Flavor is classic pilsner. A nice hop smack on the tounge, crisp, refreshing with a flicker of bitterness as it goes down and then itís gone. Very nice.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2007 I hate this beer! Boring crappy typical yellow mildly cloudy thin expletive ale. Absolutely boring and predictable, it pains me to think that craft artisans need to produce beers like this. Also, makes me sneeze, since I have some weird allergy to bad beers... the worst!
