StudHammer (29) - - JUL 25, 2016
Pours clear gold with a thick, frothy off white head. Tastes like citrus hops, resin, caramel malt, orange, and grassy. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, resin, caramel malt, orange, and grass. Too hoppy for a pils. Bummer.

after4ever (7486) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2016
12-oz can. Pours a very cloudy medium amber with a loose white head that sticks around for a fair bit. Big sweet nose, some oranges and some sweet cream, very much a creamsicle. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Light caramel, lots of oranges, lots of cream, grassy notes. Long sweet finish. What this has to do with an "American Pilsner" is utterly beyond me, but thatís alright. I sat outside, knocked back two of them, and distinctly wished I had more than two.

Can at home. Slightly hazy golden orange colour. Faint sweetness from a malt base. Some citrus notes, subtle hop bite. Splendid :)

hrabren (772) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 3, 2016
0.33 l can at Svijet piva (World of Beers), Zagreb. Shared with lovely Anja and Marko. About a year ago. Clear light yellow, small head. Aromatic, fruity. Bitter kick, some malts in the background. Bitter for a pilsner, but that isnít bad. Good beer to drink in large amounts.

superspak (4474) - Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2016
12 ounce can into lager glass, unreadable can dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright golden yellow color, with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Awesome appearance. Aromas of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately creamy/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous mouthfeel that is nice. Zero alcohol warming as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great hoppy American Pilsner style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

JDBaker11058 (1824) - Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2016
appearance: light amber, with a frothy off-white head and decent lacing; doesnít look much like a pilsÖ aroma: fresh grass, some pepper, brown toast, saltine cracker, light cardboard. taste: toasted brown bread, bitter floral hops, grassy hops too, some pepper and earth and a hint of citrus. finish: high carbonation, drying hops make for a clean finish with a bit of lingering bitterness. notes: Didnít feel like much of a pilsner; too dark and too toasty. Not a bad beer per se, but not my favorite interpretation of the style. Can from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits.
