Bottled on 1/30/08, sampled on 2/14/08. Pale yellow straw color with a white 1-finger head that quickly fades to small patches and clumps. Ultra-fine bubbles lace well. Very grainy Pils malt aroma with a definite noble hop accent. Some carbonic whiffs. Taste mirrors the aroma. Lots of grainy Pils malt taste witha good spicy Saaz bite on the dry bittering finish. Some stingy carbonation, but not completely out of line for the style. Great American Pilsener in a more traditional style that say, Prima Pils. Get a fresh sample to rate people! Underrated.

slightly hazy gold, bubbly white head, medium body, medium carbonation.

aroma: sweet pilsner malt, saaz hops.

taste: sweet pilsner malt, floral saaz hops.

simple and clean, with very nice flavors. hops come across as fresh and delicate. may not be an exact replica of the traditional style, seeming to have more body and alcohol, but what’s not to like about that.

July 2007 - Clear golden color, pillowy head and nice lacing. Strong aroma of flowers and grass. Very nice balance of sweet pilsner malt, grassy and floral hops. Light and refreshing without being watery and bland...full flavor. Good effort from the Left Hand!

Better than a typical Pilsner pour, with a page golden body, lively carbonation streamers full of tiny bubbles, and a two finger thick, craggy head. The smell was flowery, grassy, and had a hint of cooked corn in it. The taste was a mixture of simple sweetness with a lemony and spicy hop presence. Easy to drink, due to a light, aired out body, and clean lemon drop like finish. I just wanted a lighter diversion this week from the usual ales I drink, and this was just what I expected. Nothing spectacular, but who buys a Pils expecting that?

This is not quite an authentic take on a German pils as it claims but it’s a good beer whatever it is. It’s very pale straw yellow in color, perfectly clear w/ a small ring of a fine-bubbled head. The nose is herbal and slightly bready. The hops in this give it a sort of lemony citrus taste--which is why I said earlier that it didn’t quite fit the bill as a Germ an pils--and it’s quite crisp and easily drinkable. I am always excited to see a relatively large craft brewers take on light lager styles as they typically have the means to brew a lager and have it turn out right and this does not disappoint.
