"i do seem to like the noble hops in my pils! that’s the strength of this beer, though i didn’t like it quite as much as sam adams noble. fairly clean and crisp but with a stronger hop presence than par for the style."

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste sweet, grassy, light. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Pours a clear, bright straw. Lots of carbonation with a foam head. Solid pilsner malt aroma. Nice pilsner taste, refreshing, bubbly and balanced. Slightly sticky mouthfeel bit a bit of hops bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin head of spotty white and tiny bubbles. Aroma is a little on the skunky side - which maybe I just associate with czech hops, which remind me of budweiser. The flavors contain a bit of malt sweetness and the hops reappear in the finish. Crisp and clean. Easy to drink. I believe it is style-appropriate. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow. Thin, but lasting, head with some good retention. Aroma is grainy & grassy with a bit of lemon in there. Taste is similar with a crisp mild bitterness in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; Pour is fairly clear medium golden, with a modest ,fine bubbled white head into this glass. It retains on the average / below average side of things. Caramel sweet grain, with florals and feint adjunct - It doesnt exactly impress. The flavor profile is light bitter, more adjunct, moving to sweet bread and floral hop presence. It’s lacking depth, and I find it overly sweet frankly. Well. It’s something

Golden color... Aroma of apple cider, light pilsner malts... Flavor is very cidery, lots of crisp pilsner malts without much harshness on the finish... Easy to drink, decent pilsner

I just did not like this beer. It was light but had some off putting flavors. Kind of strange, maybe it was my batch. LIght upfront but the finish is a mix of malts, spice, and left over flavors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stamped on the bottom of the can, it reads "23 Nov 2014." Given the date, I’m assuming that this is a best by date which is New Belgium’s style.
I poured this into a pilsener. The previous two cans were consumed out of the can.
The appearance was a hazy golden yellow color with a slight transparency about it to allow light streams of carbonation to be seen rising. Three finger white foamy head dissipated leaving a messy sort of lacing.
The smell had a sweet grassy and grainy sort of sweet corn malt to eventually allow a really nice sweet lemon to come in.
The taste was mainly the sweet grassy and grainy corn. The lemon was no where to be found in the flavor.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was substantially good for the style and for me as it was there but nothing overbearing.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Pilsener made by an American brewer.
