Pours clear gold under a tall white head. Spicy hop aroma. The flavor is light malt balanced with a very light hop bitterness.

Pours a light yellow color with a small bubbled head. Aroma is biscuit and crystal malt. Some grassy hops. The taste is balanced, doughy malt gives way to a hint of lemon citrus and a strong grassy hop. High carbonation makes it very bubbley. Some what bittery. Easy drinking and refreshing with a bit of bite.

Serving: Bottle from Bottle Revolution. It pours a pale yellow with a fleeting white head. The nose is grassy with a bit of diacetyl. The flavor follows suit with a slight touch of malt. Slick mouthfeel.

On tap at Olde Hickory. Pours a yellow color with white head. Grainy, earthy, corn flavors. Pretty light bodied and easy drinking.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2014
On tap @ Olde Hickory. Pours a very light yellow appearance with a thin white head. Pretty blend, a touch sweet market, lemon aroma. A touch zippy. Somewhat sweet flavor. Moderate carbonation. Kind of bland but not offensive.

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Pours perfectly clear pale yellow with a fine, creamy white head. Light biscuity pale malts in the nose, cereal, hay. Light sweet flavor, lightly hoppy, further bisuity malts, mellow floral notes, hints of grass. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp finish, some dry cereal, biscuits, hay. Very basic.

Bomber. I really really dislike pilsners and this beer is no exception. Nothing crazy and true to its class. Yuck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

firedog23 (73) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Poured into a shaker pint glass. Thin head and straw in color. Low aroma and watery taste. A little spice to it but other than that, it is a so-so beer. Good for hot weather and not much more.

chinchill (2056) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2013
22 oz poured into St. Bernardus snifter. Just purchased in NC but a little past the best by date of April 2013. At least it was refrigerated in the store and at home since purchase. A: Light straw-golden color; clear; undersized sudsy white head quickly disappeared. Looks undercarbonated. Rating of 3 compensates for the possiblity of adverse effects of being a little old. {Likewise for Feel} S: More or less the expected mix of bready malts and grassy/spicy hops, but not a lot of hops for style. T: Lightly bitter with grassy hops. Faint, biscuity malts. M: Carbonation is low; light bodied, semi-dry finish, Could use a more carbonation. O: A decent pilsner, but not one worth seeking out. Try a different pilsner or a different Olde Hickory instead.
