A nice American version of a style I am getting to appreciate more and more. Light but distinct German malt grain in the aroma,little wisps of noble hop, taste is that wonderful bready German malt /noble hop combination that seems so satisfying lately. Probaly what the early macros tasted like

Kinz (3459) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2007
The sole new rating I found at the world’s smallest microbrew festival in Phoebus. I shouldn’t bang on it, as it was actually a decent little event. In any case, pours a clear gold with a nice head, attractive. Aroma faintly grassy. Clean light malts with a bit of grassy hops to balance. Very crisp and smooth. Not the most flavorful brew perhaps, but definitely nicely done. Not everything needs to be totally over the top.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Pours piss colored yellow with a white head. Looks pretty much identical to your run of the mill macro swill. Aroma is a crisp maltiness with a tinge of grass hops. Flavor is the same as the aroma would suggest, crisp with a decent malt body and a dry grass finish. Slightly bitter. Very ordinary.

mrant (330) - New York, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Smells grassy and slightly hoppy. Pours a mildly hazy straw yellow with a fair amount of head. Taste is crisp and slightly sour. Leaves a sourish feeling in your mouth. Not bad for a pilsner.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Pours golden with an effervescent body and mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of Saaz, slightly stinky, cheesy hop notes, with other notes of grass and hay. Taste is herbal, grainy, with notes of honey malt and hay. Mouthfeel is light bodied, lightly resinous with lively carbonation.

nearbeer (4053) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 12, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2009 Bottled 07-23-07. Clear pale topaz with a medium and lasting head. Aroma is mostly honey-tinged cereal. Flavor is pretty well balanced, but seems to have more of that Saaz hop zing than most. I am just not a big fan of this style, but this one is definitely a good example of the style.

Tmoney99 (11683) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Bottle from Party Source. Poured clear amber color with a moderate frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate grassy aroma. Medium body. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Drinkable brew.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - SEP 4, 2007
12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner. Pours a clear light gold with a large frothy and loose white head. Nice lacing. Bready pilsner malts and grassy hops on the nose, along with a faint note of earthy mustiness. Light bodied and thin with a dry, crisp and slightly metallic finish. The flavor is of biscuity malts and grassy hops that linger for just a second following an otherwise crisp, dry conclusion. Not a bad pilsner; actually leaning toward the hop side of the equation. I’d like to taste a bit more of the pilsner malts, but this beer certainly fills the bill if you want a crisp, clean thirst quencher. This would be a decent gateway beer for Miller drinkers.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma: Light bready and grainy maltiness, grassy/spicy hops. Appearance: Light golden in color and clear. White head was medium and foamy with fair retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Grainy maltiness, light mineral note. Decent hoppiness with the Saaz grassy and spicy notes. Medium-dry finish. Palate: Medium-light bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: A decent pilsener, but nothing outstanding.

valpoaj (661) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Unremarkable brew. Light hops and corn dominate both the aroma and the flavor. Appearance was typical for a pilsener. Would write more, but it wouldn’t serve a purpose
