We tried a " few " glasses of this last year while on a camping\driving tour of Colorado. Loved the color and the hoppy smell. Not too bad for a Pilsner.

Pours golden with a white head the quicky disappears. Not a good sign.The taste is crisp but overwhelmingly hoppy. Finishes very bitter. Not alot of pleasure coming from this one. I don’t thikn it’s new belgium thats to blame hear I just haven’t yet found a pilsner that I like. They all seem skunky to me.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2004 Pours a cloudy yellow with a thcik dissipating white head. Light metallic aroma. Light fruit notes and an ever so slight banana taste. Good mouthfeel well carbonated, and crisp but lacks any real flavor. Sour finish.

As far as Pilsners go this one is not bad. Typical pale golden colour, lasting white head, nice lacing. Strong hop presence with a decent malt balance. Slight butteriness. I'll give this a few points extra as a handicap against my lager bias.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong hop and malt aromas. Pale yellow with a creamy head. Lots of lacing all the way down the glass. Excellent malty flavor, with a hint of toasted malt and a little bit of hop flavor to work with the bitterness

On tap in my local alehouse. A flowery malty nose that brings some hop aroma as well. Nothing special in the color department- looks like a pilsener. Hop flavor is not as biting as some pilseners. A subtle Belgian yeast zinger sneaks into the flavor. Much better on tap than in the bottle.
