GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Can. Poured a clear gold color with a white head. Pretty standard, but good pilsner aromas that included the likes of hay, grass, and a bit of grape. Light bodied and dryish with grass, cereal grain, and subdued honey flavors.

Heavy pilsener malt character. Lemongrass notes with a quasi-medicinal floral component. Extremely drinkable.

larryLSB (396) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Poured out of the can, courtesy of Alex at K & L Wines. Pretty standard Pils, light yellow with off white head, smooth and dry, floral nose, not much flavor of the hops that I could detect.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Can courtesy of BigErn. Pours yellow with a white head. Smells of light fruit, dry pilsner malt. Tastes of dry maly, light and fruity with a peppery splash on the finish.

can from Total Wine, Alpharetta. pours a light golden with a decent white head. slight hop aroma as well as some bread... medium body... a pils with some depth. very drinkable session beer from front to back with a nice bitter finish.

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Pours out a clear yellow-straw color with a moderate fluffy white head. Aroma of grassy and floral hops, mostly grassy, and a slight sweet malt nose. Taste is smooth, grassy hops, floral hops, sweet malts with a somewhat buttery taste. Not bad, but this is just one of those styles....

morrdt (681) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - MAY 17, 2009
12 oz. can from Total Wine in Jacksonville, FL. Pours a clear yellow color with little head. Aroma is typical pilsner with malt and hops. Flavor is a touch of hops with thin and light floral notes. A good canned beer but nothing too special.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Growler - pours a clear light gold, with a soapy, short-lived head - nose of lemon, honey, grass, herbal/floral hops - this is light and drinkable, which a good pils should be, but it lacks the balance and complexity of the great examples of the style - this is mostly honey-sweet, with light hints of grain, and a bit of grassy hops, but not enough to balance the sweetness, nor to add the crisp bite you’d want from the style - in fact, the finish is lingering honey sweetness and buttery/diacetyl flavors - kind of a train wreck of a pils - stick to the big beers, boys.

Pours at attractive slightly hazy light golden with only a small foamy white head. Pleasant pils nose of grass, hay and herbal hops. Malty pils base followed by notes of grain and noble hop varieties like Saaz and (possibly) Tettnang. Tasty and easy-drinking. I just wish the finish ended more bitter and snappy - it ends too sweet for a pils. Good medium, full mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.
