3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much to say about this beer.
Pour is golden with a frothy white head that leaves clumps of lacing behind.
Aroma is doughy, maybe a little lemon in the background.
Flavor is a little lacking, citrusy with a lttle bit of spice.
Finish is crisp and clean.

New Belgium comes through again. I'm not even much of a Pilsner fan but this one got my attention. A very nice, cris brew (as Pils shouls be) with a citrusy start and a hoppy finish.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2005 ReRate-Ok, I just had another bottle of this stuff and i must say, Its pretty good. Pours pale yellow with a nice sudsy white head. good lacing as well. Big spicy, grainy aroma with nice german hop accents. Flavors are sweet, a little grainy and nice german hops. I think this is a great light lager for the summer!
bottle-After having the great Sierra Blanca Pilsner just before this one, I must say that this beer falls very short. Very unbalanced and not all there. Boring palate with some spicy hops in the finish. pretty basic, but i guess I would take it if it was all that was any good....

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden, pale yellow color. Not much of an aroma, but some malt. Dry, smooth taste. Malty flavor. Pretty decent. One of the better beers from New Belgium.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light gold with very little head. Aroma is a bit metallic with a slight detection of hops. Has a light body that is crisp. Flavor is a grainy malt with a bitter finish. Overall not very good. I'd take Warsteiner over this one any day.

Lovely gold with nice white head that leaves lace on the glass. A well balanced and flavorful pilsner. Would be a great summer beer.

Soooo much better than Fat Tire, but still not great...
Pours a golden yellow with not much head but with all the carbonation it leaves behind a suprising amount of lacing.
Smells light and citrusy with a hint of hops.
Tastes okay but it's lacking something. There's a light taste of hops and a lemony hint of citrus, but for some reason I'm picturing apples
Mouthfeel is carbonated water. There really isn't much there.
Drinkability? I'd grab one if I was thirsty, yeah. And I could have several without problems. But there are too many better pilsners out there for the money.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Straw hue with fizzy white head and some lace. The aroma hinted of grassy and aromatic hops, biscuit, leathery yeast, lemon. The taste starts sweet with a monor bitter off-tone. A citric undertone shines through but quickly disappears to the light buttery malt and lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel was watery and not a crisp as would like in a pils. Okay I guess, nothing to seek out.

Bought a single of this just to try, but it was not all that interesting. Decent pils but I wish it had more snappy hops.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2003 This is a pretty good lager, but it's still a lager. The palate on this has a little more body to it than most of the watery lagers ive come across. Definatly not New Belgium's strongest effort.
