JK (5410) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2009
I always look forward to a good pilsner but this didn’t get there. Yellow. Some corn. Mild lager yeast and light corn flavor. Purchased at Trader Joes, Minnesota.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Side by side with Simpler Times Lager. 12oz twist-off bottle. Clear golden color, foamy white head. Aroma of steamed mixed vegetables and straw. Straight forward malt flavor. Decent hop bitterness. Light bodied, good balance, Miller Lite clone. Unimpressed.

JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is lightly malty. Simple sweet pilsner malt. Fairly grassy with a lingering sweetness. Meh... it’s pretty plain really. Lingering sweetness.

badgerben (4720) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2009
MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering, January 10, 2009. Courtesy of JK. Gold color with a thin head. Aroma of corn and fruit. Taste is about the same. Quite sugary. If we were going purely by style, this would absolutely fail as a Pils. Other than that, it’s at least drinkable.

SSSteve (4006) - - JAN 27, 2009
pale gold under a large foamy white head. no bubbles. honey and malt aroma with a hint of lemon. flavors of caramel and light grassy hops. far from good but the best i’ve had tonight (which doesn’t mean much).

Ughsmash (7465) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived cap of white head and steady rising carbonation. The aroma picked up honey sweetness with a zesty, sharper accent to it.. didn’t enjoy the nose. The flavor had pale and lighter caramel sweetness with the same sharp highlights that didn’t work any better than my first impressions.. grassy and hay-like in character.. finished rough and unpleasant. Light-bodied and rather metallic on the palate.. nothing worked for this one.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Good lawnmower beer. Thanks to JK for sharing this. Clear golden pour with a white head. Corn and some light floral hops on the nose. The flavor is more of the grainy corn taste with a slight increase in the hop profile.

BrewDad (5274) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2009
12oz Bottle – Trader Joes – Tacoma, WA – Light flavor, aroma and overall for this beer. Just a pilsner with very little for flavor. This will do for the super hot days after mowing the grass. But I would only give to friends who are not beer geeks.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Skyview (5411) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Sampled at MN Gathering II and shared by JK. Pours a clear light golden pale brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of golden grain malt, light corn flake cereal, and a hint of citrus zest. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, corn grits, and some citrus zest. Finish is semi-sweet, a tad watery compared to the Simpler Times Lager. It’s okay for a light pils for the hot summers.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 7/20
IrishBoy (4022) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 7, 2009
12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s, Bakersfield. Nose of grassy hops and light grainy (corn) sweetness along with a very light diacetyl note.Lightly hazy gold with a medium white head. Flavor is very light hop bitterness, corn, and some light diacetyl. Without the diacetyl it would be an OK pilsener.
