COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

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

exeter (306) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Poured out of the bottle with a fluffy white with a clear light golden liquid. Taste is first malty sweetness that lingers on the palate a bit followed by a restrained hop bitterness. it’s average.

Bottle at Passionfish. Clear golden, scant head. Aroma is malty, taste is straightforward malt and not much else. Ordinary.

arkurzynski (1526) - 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.

MarkSachon (590) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
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 (13793) - 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 (310) - 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.
