johnnnniee (2834) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle from The Drinkery Derry. Brilliantly clear light golden color with a smallish bubbly white head. A bit of skunk escaped from the bottle as I popped this open but quickly subsided. Light grainy malt, light fruitiness, light floral hops, and hints of sulfur. Not as clean as this should be for the style.

Clear pale straw pour with a medium white head. So-so lacing. Cracker and faint noble hops in the nose. Light body, active carbonation. Tart apple, malt, decent noble hop bitterness. Mineral and slightly astringent finish. Decent.

Very nice looking. Aroma is hay, leaves, vegetal. Little bit of sulfur. Taste is a bit metallic and bitter. Very authentic tasting in that it tastes a lot like most German pilsners - but those beers had to come all the way from Germany. I would guess that this beer tastes quite a bit different on draft. Seems to be a well-crafted beer, but I probably wonít pick up bottles again.

BlackHaddock (4875) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2015
27th May 2015: on-tap @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad and @ Surfside Tap Room, Oceanside. Drank to cleanse my palate which sipping stronger, darker brews (did not fancy using water). Most likely the best lager/pilsner based beer I had during my month in Southern California, I thought it looked the part: clean, clear and golden with a snow white topping. It was both crisp and dry in nature and although it had the usual weak pilsner aroma it had enough maltiness within the hop profile to stay true to itís stated German style.

TheGB (562) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Pours yellow with a nice foamy head at first that dissipates quickly. Light aroma, worth a decent taste and palate. Less generic beer flavor than a lot of pilsners Iíve had.

kevinator (1340) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2015
A very light refreshing lager. Aroma of Pilsner malts and some hops. Light yellow color that hints to the light crisp palate with strong carbonation. Nice blend of pale malts and a zesty hop finish. Very drinkable.

Smells like a pilsner...light and clear appearance... Taste is maltier and sweeter than other pilsners...very light bitterness in the middle...ends sweeter...one of best pilsners if not the best Iíve had...for my palate, could drink a few

Jabah (198) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
I enjoyed this beer as far as pilsners are concerned. It was very smooth, clear...pale yellow color. Not too much carbonation to give itís smooth texture, but just enough to have a decent fizz, with a light head. Tastes of mostly barley, a little yeast. A very good daytime beer or for in between darks.
