Draft at the brewery. Dark gold pour with a thin white head. Light hop velvety malt aroma. A good malty taste, solid body with a lot of hops for a pilsener. Leaves a slight bitter finish. One of the better offerings from the brewery.

At OB. Gold with hints of red. Nose of hops and malt. A hoppy malty beer that is semi sweet. Solid palate and good carbonation. Very soldi beer with a very good hop profile that leads to a very good bitter finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a translucent golden with a large fog white head that laced. Aroma of mixed citrus, cereal grains, lots of nice floral/spicy hop notes and very fruity. Flavor of hops, cereal grains, good bit of hop bitterness, some grapefruity character. A nice hoppy pilsner.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample at brewhouse. Poured a clear straw color with a moderate fizzy white head that mostly lasted and had good lacing. Moderate hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bitter hoppy flavor with a medium bittersweet dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear, medium gold body with a wispy, thin, pure white film. A thin, foamy edge leaves behind minimal amounts of spotty lacing. The aroma shows very light caramel malts, cream, bready yeast, a drop of lemon, and a surprising amount of floral hops. The flavor started out sweet and biscuity, with a good amount of lemon chiffon character and a nice dose of floral, slightly peppery hops. Medium-light bodied and smooth, this would be a nice session brew on a hot day. I’m starting to think that Orlando Brewing does lagers better than it does ales, as this one and the Doppelbock were the most impressive brews within their styles.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I’ll be completely honest, i had did not have high hopes for this one, but it really surprised me! Cereal grains in the aroma, a little spicy. Pours light blonde. Very hoppy, bitter, some cereal grain flavors, slightly catty. This is definitely NOT a "classic german pilsner" its way too hoppy, but i do like a hoppy pilsner, despite the slight cattiness in the hop flavor, its pretty good. Just don’t let it get a little warm, towards the end, it got pretty nasty as it warmed up.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft... Lightly-hazed yellow lager with a small, wispy, white head... diminishes to an ultra-small, creamy head. Excellent retention. The aroma is of citrus, white bread and toffee with an earthy undertone. Sweet, pilsner malt flavor is challenged by, but not equaled by, earthy Saaz hops. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Metallic bitterness lingers on the back of my palate for minutes, not seconds, after each sip.
