Draft at Millstream. $3.25 for pint. I had a taster of this at first while trying their doppelbock, but decided to chase it down with this. Very pale in a glass taster, but there’s a little more color to be seen in the larger cup, even if it is white plastic. A thin layer of fizz instead of the bubbly head of a canned lager. Toasty malt smell with a side of peppery Noble hops. Taste: well, I still have some of the doppel stuck to my tongue, but this is darn hearty. Clearly a full grain beer with a light pils toast. Interesting that the ingredient list above shows no real surprises in specialty grains. It’s hard to find a pils with any great complexity by definition, but then again, I can appreciate a beer with everything a light lager should have and no shortcuts or off tastes. On the unseasonably warm March day that I tasted this, the cup warmed up enough to let a bit of ester off the beer. Happy little burp at the finish.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Straw color with a fluffy, wispy white head. Aromas of fresh cut weeds, sumac and just a hint of pale malt. Light citrus and pale malt flavors. Not a crisp clean hop profile. 12/12

On tap. Bright straw with good clarity. Thin white head that has minimal lacing. Biscuit and cereal malt flavor with a medium floral finish. Very well done and clean pilsner.

Solid pilsner with a light crisp taste. It’s worth picking up a six pack and chilling.

Bottle. A- Corn, slightly sweet, subtle lemon. A- Yellow color, clear liquid, white head. T- Sweet corn, grains, subtle lemon. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- This one was pretty crisp and refreshing. A bit of hoppiness to it and a decent flavor. Not totally bland and boring.

Bottle courtesy of HuskerTan, thanks! Hazy pale straw color, bright thin white head. Aroma is very lemony. Taste is lightly bitter and peppery citrus. Decent.

jmohno (1465) - Iowa, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Yellow light gold, creamy head, frothy lace. Aroma is soapy, like dawn or something, floral, light lemon, slight pepper. Some bready malt. Taste is some dry malt, light floral, light lemon, stale bread, fizzy but flat tasteing. Mild medium grass lemon finish. Lemony linger. Not bad. Decent, nothing to really complain about. Its summer its going down good.

Fairly clear golden with a white head. Loads of malt and toasted bread aroma. Medium sweet notes. Medium crispy body. Flavor has plenty of sweet toasted bread, light grass. A decent Pilsner but nothing remarkable.

gold lager bootle thanks to pepsican! kicks of with a potent sweet dough malts which offer a doughy honeyeddewdew, faint candy, wet hay. touch of cooked vegtable. bit of a bready herbal finish. not really sure what i’m talking about @ this point, but this rew is somewhat drinkable.
