On tap. Pours a crystal clear bright golden color with a finger of fluffy off white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, and a bit of faint grain. Taste is grainy, somewhat bready, grassy, with some sour citrus.

Draft at the Sybarite Pig. Pilsner glass. Great yellow pour with thick white head. Mild carbonation. Aroma light with bread, biscuit, slight flowery smell. Light body with biscuit taste, slight grape taste with mild hops. Nice aftertaste. Crisp finish. Good job

Not what I expected from a Pilsener. The would-be nice aroma of fruits, with mango, grapes and grapefruit, is protected by a shell of skunkiness. Not grassy as I’d expect a pilsener to be. The fruity flavours get too blended in the taste and it gets a relatively low score perhaps because of my disappointment.

pours hazy golden with a nice white cap, some retention and lacing. pale slightly grainy cereals, faint citrus and herbal notes, bit of pepper, cheese and cardboard. bright to average carbonation, light body - tad weak, very short herbal, dry and lightly citrusy finish. lame interpretation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fruity, herbal character; Light in aroma, more prominent flavor. Light sweet, grainy malt flavor, and a biscuit-y flavor in the aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, golden, slightly amber (Munich malt) color with super-charged carbonation issuing from the bottom. Bready, hay nose, creamy mouthfeel, crisp, carbonated finish. It finishes with a little bit of a ballpark, skunky taste. Okay pilsner. Not one of NCB’s better efforts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. The pour is pale yellow with a short lived white head. It has good clarity. Aroma of caramel and sweetness which I found a tad unusual. The body is light and smooth. The taste has a more sweeter than grainy flavor considering it is a pilsener. Not too bad.

Nice medium bodied pilsner. This beer has a nice mouthfeel and creamy like finish. Nice subtly finish that is simple but not empty. Different than the saaz hop type pilsners, a little less bite and a little smoother.

Enjoyed a pint of this beer in a tall pilsner glass in Old Salem, NC. The beer had a medium, clear gold color, with a good-sized foamy white head that had average retention, good cling, and average lacing. Its aroma featured a mixture of citrus and pine hops, along with a bit of straw and malt. The taste was somewhat bitter, featuring light citrus and straw notes, and had a very light sweet malt component too. The body was average-to-thin in thickness, and somewhat bubbly and foamy, with low-to-average carbonation and a dryish character.
