Bottle thanks to Rando7. Pours clear gold with very quickly dissipating white head. Nose is citrus, pine and roasted barley. Taste is citrus, toasted barley and fine malt balance.

Golden pour with small head. Aroma of earth, apple skin, spice, clove. Soapy flavor leads to big grassy hops. Dry and bitter.

Bottle thanks to nuplastikk: Pours a transparent bright golden with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of authentic lightly sweet soft pale malts with some light floral, almost fruity, noble hop notes. Starts with good fullness for the style and a pleasant light sweetness well-balanced with a fresh floral noble hop character before a smooth, drier, refreshing finish. This is the best Pilsner I’ve had to date. Wish I could try this alongside their Unplugged Bohemian Lager, as they seem quite similar.

500mL bottle, no date from badbeer Mike. Thanks man. Clear golden with a moderate white head, pretty decent retention. Pils and pasta notes up front with some hay and noble hops behind, and the slightest tinge of sulfur. Up front in the flavor I get some lager yeast and a bit of honey, otherwise just pilsenery goodness. Clean dry finish with bitterness at a 3. Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Very good pile.

Thanks to hezron for sharing this with me. When I went to get more a few days later the brewery was closed for a public party. Hopefully I can track some down around the time of the Great Taste. This is a decent Bohemian pilsener. While it is not my favorite style I could easily knock down a bottle of this despite the cost. If I were to choose Unpluggeds for 2011 this would be on the list.

Aroma / Appearance - The clear transparent body and stark white head gave this a glow that stood out in the dimly lit bar. Honey nut cheerios, light hops, and golden grahams brought back the memory of a cereal breakfast sans milk.

Flavor / Palate - The sweetness of corn syrup was tough to put down at first but then began to mellow. As it did I picked up some dandelions or other weedy flowers in the background. The finish was moderate and lasted several minutes. Overall this was a fair session beer that I wouldn’t think twice about ordering/opening. It is good to know that New Glarus still has it with even the lighter styles.

DYCSoccer17 (3348) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2010
5 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Community Beerfest. Nice grassy, spicy noble hop nose with some scant biscuit maltiness. Quite quaffable. Transparent golden body with a small white head present and light lacing. Metallic, spicy, lightly astringent start with some biscuit malt flavors in the middle. Finishes with a nice herbal grassiness. Pretty tasty.

marcus (6696) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 5, 2010
From bottle at Davis Beerfest 2010. Pours clear yellow with a fluffy white head and a fruity aroma. There is a soft fruity flavor that is quite pleasant and unique.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle at the Sudwerks beerfest. Pours light gold with a foamy white head. Mildly fruity and bready aromas. Flavor is a little grape and citrus with light malt. A very different lager. Not strongly anything, but very pleasant.

Pours a deep golden color with a big white head that leaves a good lace. The aroma is pretty gosh darned faint but it’s got some complexity. Some fresh cut grass some citrus and a good clean malty character. As it warms alcohol is very apparent and kind of annoying. The flavor is nice but it’s also just kind of faint all together. There is a nice soft hoppiness but the flavor is pretty hop driven (despite the softness there of) There is plenty of fruitiness and some light alcohol and honey with some citrus rind. This is nice but I like Yokel, Cabin Fever, Edel Pils, Bohemian Lager, & home town much more. I’ve got a few other bottles, if this merits a re-rate I’d be happy to do that.

50cl bottle thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Sorry guys, I must disagree on this one. When it was quite cold there was lots of nice hay, but as it warmed just a little (not much mind you), nail polish and fake cherry came in and dominated-nose to finish. It wasn’t super strong, but in a beer this light it is very harsh and unforgiving. I could see how those less sensitive to those flavors would love this beer as i would were they not there.
