UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 Not as sweet as Urquell, but in the same vein. Biting carbonation on the palate. One of New Belgium's lesser beers, but I like it better than the Fat Tire Amber. I wish the hops were slightly more assertive, but I guess it wouldn't be appropriate for the style.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2003 refreshing and citrucy with a hint of malty sweetness. Huge whte head, good carbonation. Classic golden pilsener. Light and unoffensive, nothing special but ok. hints of yeast too, as it warmed.

Mostly malty aroma. The head sticks around for a while and is frothy and white. Good light-golden pilsner color. Lightly malty, lightly hoppy taste. Middle-of-the-road pilsner.

Fizzy pour, champagne-like. nose of new spring grass, kinda florally, with just a hint of green apple. Definately one of the more satisfying pilsners. Clean finish, crisp-Yummy!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 Bottle... The nose is lightly malty with aromatic hops. Notes of herbs and citrus. A whisper of toffee or butterscotch.
Crystal clear golden hue. Medium-sized, fizzy white head. Quickly and fully diminishing. Very good lacing.
The flavor is very well balanced. Maltier than many pilseners up front, but not sweet. A touch bitter on the backside. Fairly thin, but that goes with the style.
Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. A short, crisp, clean, dry finish. Clover and fresh cut fescue appear briefly. Refreshing. An excellent lawnmower beer.

I hate rating beer after Grant410. =) It was very skunky and I couldn’t tell anything about it other than that. It tasted pretty gross, like a cheap American standard.

Skunky, first of all. Second of all, this tastes very alcoholic for a low ABV beer. Golden apple flavors and a nice hops bite at the end. An ugly straw color with absolutely no head. Overall a snooze; there are much better pilseners.

Enjoyable hop flavor and some bitterness as well. Not spectaular, but nothing that terrible either.
