Sparkling golden colour with a persistent white head. Aromas of sweet malt and Irish whiskey, oddly enough. There is a chemical freshness along with peachy nectar. I’m undecided as to whether this is an asset or not. On the whole I have decided that I quite like the smell. In the mouth there is an enormous amount of carbonation that brings out slightly tart fruity juiciness and some of the more mellow malt characters. This is a pilsner, but not like I know it. It finishes with an almost Granny Smith apple crispness but I am left wondering about a few things. It wouldn’t slot nicely into the style, it is a curious creature but not without its charms. Does this oddness harm the overall response to the beer and should it be regarded along BJCP guidelines? I’ll prevaricate and judge it whether I liked it or not along with consideration for what it would do if judged more critically. I did quite like it, I have had less charming beers but I’m looking forward to something different next.

On draft poured into pint glass. Wasn’t much of a head. A little malty and hoppy aroma to it. Tasted really fresh for a pilsner. Would drink again, a go to pilsner.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden with a big, fluffy white head. The aroma has a bit of doughy pils malt, with some Munich malt in there too. There is just a faint hint of hops. Nice slightly toasted malt notes with some chewy sweetness, and ends with a crisp finish. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Typical translucent golden yellow pilsener appearance, although perhaps slightly more golden. Meager aroma consisting of malt, yeast, but a little bit of cereal and honey to make it interesting. Pleasantly surprised as it’s relatively complex for a pils. Medium body, initially honey and cereal, but finishes slightly bitter and grassy. Good.

"you can taste the hops a little more than other pilsners which sets this one apart a little. Hallertaus. Pours the usual unassuming yellow. More aromatic and flavorful than others as well, but not as clean and crisp. pretty good, overall."

Delícia de Pilsen. Aroma de frutas frescas, sabor leve e maltado. Aparência levemente turva com ótimo corpo e espuma. Deliciosa.

Pretty good pilsner. Not one of my favorite styles, but if you’ve got a Bud drinker with you then go for it.

I could drink this all day. Both malts and hops are very subtle and clean, but interesting as they unfold.

Pretty Lackluster. Weak aroma and light taste. DrInkable but forgettable. Steer away unless no better options.
