I’m not sure if I got a bad sample of this one. Nice enough pour, bright and clean straw yellow with a foamy white head. Lots of diacetyl in the nose and flavor. Slightly grainy/bready malt character with a nice hop presence.

Been trying to hunt this one down. Fresh local pilsners are one of my favorite beers. This is above average & really hope they bottle this seasonally. At $8 a six pack it could be my go to summer beer. I think I might like it more than SA Noble Pils or Prima Pils which is saying a lot. Carbonation was off on mine being low but i think its a problem w/ Leesville Taproom and not Lonerider.

On tap at the brewery - Pours hazy yellow-golden with a thin white head. Fine duration. Mild malty aroma, some doughy notes and a little hay. Moderate carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavor is crisp, nicely hopped with notes of hay, flowers and grass. Nice malty sweetness. Not a huge pilsner fan, so take this rating with a grain of salt, but on a positive note this brew brought me back to my military days of drinking this style when I was in Germany.
