Fresh from the wholesaler....Bottled OCT 3rd. Pretty strightfoward pils but lacking malt complexity found in true European versions. Hops are Saaz and are a bit murky and not vibrant enough. A good try at a hard style to brew though. I would perfer the blue paddle pils from New Belgium Brewry over this but we cant get it hear. I wish new Belgium would ship to the east. I also dectected a bit of soap falvor from the yeast used.

Decent session beer. A little light for style and thin in taste. Ok, but nothing exceptional.

A good example of a pilsner, meaning that it is drinkable but about as exciting as Friday night with your parents. A nose that reveals a bit of nuttiness, smooth across the tongue and nicely carbonated, but with a damped down flavor. If you’re going to drink it, complement it with something salty, like pizza.

(Bottle) Pours golden with a large white head. A pretty good pilsner. Hoppy, with a crisp and dry aftertaste. Some malty notes as well. Seemed a little over-carbonated. Comparable to some pilsners that I’ve had in Germany. I would drink this beer again.

Bottle - from sampler pack. OK but not spectacular. Not as flavorful as it could be.

Bottle. Yellow pour with resemblance of my last trip to the bathroom. Medium head, which quickly decipated. Smells Piney. Medium mouthfeel, whjich was quite crisp and smooth. Too bitter for me as i couldn’t stop smacking my lips. ehhhh

The 12 ounce bottle poured a sparklingly clear golden colored beverage with a small fizzy head that was mostly diminishing and left only a little lacing on the glass. The aroma was not what I was expecting. There were earthy malt tones accompanied by a hint of licorice and floral hops. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a thin, watery texture. The flavor starts off lightly bitter and stays that way through the medium length finish.

Pale yellow with a big fluffy and lasting head. Faint malt aroma. Very sharp, with flavors of grain and hops.

Bottle Cold Electro Lounge. Sublte aroma light malt and very light hops, nice clear goldnen color with a wihte head. Nice taste of pilsner grains, with good bitter hops added tastes quite nice, and could be easily quaffed.
