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.

I didn’t really know what to expect after the horrible rap pilseners seem to get in America, but this beer was pretty good. Nice hop bitterness with a slight malt finish. A very good summer refresher.

Thin light head, medium-heavy carbonation, smooth with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Average, drinkable, probably good on a hot day.

I was expecting more. This came off with a full body, but a very skunky taste. I know that pilseners can be better than this. Not the best from this brewery.

Ok , its a pilsner, admittedly not my favorite style. This was still a decent drink, with a light, fairly refreshing flavor, and not as watery as I expected it to be.

Golden color, medium head. Crisp, hoppy, slightly malty. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, some bitterness
