Draft. Not much aroma or flavor, but a good palate. It was disappointing and should have had more flavor. Probably not bad to augment food.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2007
Poured a pretty clear yellow; not much headed. Very little aroma or flavor; but a good mouthfeel. Some light bread and malt presence, but didnt detect much hops. Tasted like a good tasting glass of water.

Ratman197 (9874) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2007
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a min imal white head. Aromas of straw and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, bread and spicy hops with a crisp dry bitter finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Bottle: Pale yellow, slight haze, large foamy white head, vibrant, fairly clingy lacing, light carbonation.   Soft grassy nose, pale malts, a bit of straw.   Crisp grassy flavor, light sweetness, even a bit sticky.   Fairly clean, very slight grain astrigency at the finish but its very quick.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft musty grassiness lingers.   Pretty damn enjoyable for a Pilsner!

willblake (2653) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2007
27-Feb-07 12oz bottle Familiar, pleasant appearance with this pale, clear, straw colored beer with streaming eff supporting a medium sized, lasting white head. Clumps of lace. Mild cereal aromas, slightly toasty, hay bale, wet cut oats. Inviting, reminds of Bitburger right away. Medium bodied, creamy eff, mildly dry finish. Lacking in the end; not sufficiently dry or final. Flavors in keeping with aromas, soft but sweet grains, not seemingly oxidized, not particularly hoppy at any point. About a notch below a generic brewpub pils, which is nothing to write home about.

JK (4475) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2007
I thought it was more Czech than German in character. Crisp and clean with considerable hops presence. Aroma has some corn, but it works. Refreshing. Clear gold color and a substantial white head.

alobar (2791) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2007
No head. Pours a clear straw yellow color. Smells of bitter malts and bread. Taste is well-balanced for a type of beer I usually have no interest in. Some bitterness, but without the edge that comes with most pilsners.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Very biscuity aroma as well as some earthy hints as well. The flavor is lightly carbonated and has a great grainy feel to it. A very solid pils.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Very clear yellowish color - fair amount of carbonation and a medium uneven head. Basically a typical pils - decent crisp flavors, fairly well balanced but weak on the Saaz-type hoppy crunch of a good German pils (see Stoudts).

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with ample head. Aroma is corn syrup and hoppy malt. Floral honey flavor with a hint of grass. Nicely coating mouthfeel. Pretty good Pilsner, if you ask me. And since you’re reading this, you did. So there.
