3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at brewery...surely a traditional pils and it is crisp and clean and dry...but overall a let down. Smelled good, looked good. Flavor was weak, no sweetness.

Cleany citrusy flavor. Not too hoppy or malty, clean, crisp beer that isn’t trying to be anything but what it is. Its a very nice Pilsner and again another brewery whose beers impress me even more sip after sip after sip.

Bottle: Got this of the singles rack, so it mightr have been old. Good nose, lemon, straw, bready yeasty. Orange yellow color. Small head that disappeared quick. Sweet and bitter, though certainly not a big bitter. Fruity, lemon/orange, little metallic. Kinda creamy, oily. Smooth dry sour finish. Tasty, though I would think a tad fruity for a classic Pils. I suppose thats why they say a Pilsner style ale. Slowly I start to like Pilsners and Lagers

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a slightly hazy medium gold color with a moderate head and light but fairly durable lacing. Pleasant and mild yeasty hoppy aroma. Light bodied and tangy with a well balanced and slightly sweet lemon-pepper flavor that hit the spot. Dryish slightly fruity finish.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2005 I like this brew. There are way better pilseners out there. But this one has a different more refreshing hop bite than the more standard ones. Light yellow dead head. Smells like cascades to me even though there arent any in it. Taste is clean and refreshing, notes of lime, sea salt and hops.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a yellowish color with a thin head. Aroma is a bit musty, which seems to be the standard among pilsners. The taste wasn’t much different: a little malt, a little hops, nothing more, nothing less. Eh, it wasn’t offensive.

duvel tulip glass: dark straw body. thin white head. it’s got that german malt aroma. it’s crisp indeed, not quite clean, and trys to finish nicely. there's a medicinal cloy i don't enjoy. however, it’s good to wash down those greasy american foods with a cheap pils!

Pours a hazy yellow. Aroma is hops and the flavor is a grassy hoppy mix. Nice taste but a bit thick for a pilsner.

Tap@North Coast. Started off with this one, probably a good one to start of at the North Coast Pub. Pretty much a bland lager, had some odd burnt flavours though, malty.
