beertholomeus (753) - California, USA - APR 13, 2013
UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Pours a pale yellow color with thick two finger head. Smell is of cloves, some hops and some malts. Smooth light citrus and hop taste with clean dry finish. Great for a hot day.

arkurzynski (1497) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Hazy gold. Nose of wet lager malts and mild hops. Flavor is biscuity graham crackers with lager malt. A bit sweet with only mild hop bitterness. Not an overly good representation of the style.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Not really impressed. The hops seem a bit off and the flavors are odd. Too dry for its own good.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. My 200th pilsner/pilsener. Pours clear gold colour with a lasting off white head. Some noble hop aroma. Very tasty very clean pils. Even though imported from America it tastes nice and fresh. Just a very tasty lager and beer. Would happily sink pints of this. Tasty. Nice crisp bitter finish. Drunk whilst watching England dispatch India in the 5th Test at The Oval. Good.

Ontape (266) - Valley Village, California, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Draft. Pours a light gold, very clear with a nice white head. Smell is pils malt, cereal grains, faint touch of Noble hops that become more apparent as you drink it. Clean, crisp, dry... solid.

Psytron (1297) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Faint smell of hop. Hazy amber colour, small white head. Aroma of hops, spruce, also some grain. Bitter, rather shrap hoppiness. Fizzy carbon, watery palate.

macfoson (4) - - AUG 3, 2014 does not count
Subtle aroma, hint of fruit. Golden color with bright white head and decent lacing for a pilsner. This beer is refreshing and delicious, it has more flavor than any other pilsner I have ever had. This sets the bar for what a pilsner should and can be. Great beer!

fiercepanda (526) - Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2014
A clear golden beer with minimal head. The aroma is light citrus and bready grain. The flavor is sweet grain, hay, light citrus, light funk.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh) Pours a clear amber with white head. Mild aroma. As another review stated - meh...it's a pilsner. A good pilsner. But there's not much exciting about it. Probably would be pretty decent sitting around a pool on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold with lacy thin white head; aroma is lightly malty and grainy; Flava is malty notes of honey; feels light and fizzy; finishes dry slightly tart and hint of hops.
