COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first lager produced with the 20 bbl brewhouse. This pilsner is a clear golden color. Four additions of Saaz hops lend a spicy-floral hop component.

Diacetyl and DMS, the two Ds. Not a good combination for a pilsner. If this was brewed by some German company, I’m sure that the score would be a half-point lower. Hard to believe that this scores barely below Budvar on this site.

Poured from a 12 oz can. Aroma has a moderate bready, grainy character. Some light fruit esters. No phenolics or diacetyl. A touch of staleness. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow gold with a thin, white head that recedes somewhat quickly to the edges. Light lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with quite a bit of grain and bread notes. Moderate bitterness without any hop flavor. Some mineral notes to the water. Light fruit esters and no diacetyl or phenolics. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and crisp with moderate carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an easy drinking, fairly clean pilsner. A bit stale, but a good beer. Nice crispness with some good malt notes.

On tap. Pours a clear light gold with little head. Aromas of apples, cereal, and light dill. I wonder if the glass is clean... Light flavors of apples, toasted malts, and bread. Didn’t get any spice or floral notes - just a fruity slightly sweet lager.

pours slightly hazy bright yellow with a frothy white head, very good retention and lacing. pils, lightly sweet cereals - sweet bread, sulfur, lemon - sweetish lemonade, grassy-floral nobleness, spicy and peppery, fruity coconut - hint of vanilla, light woodsy and astringent notes. average carbonation, light body - oily, drying citrusy-floral-peppery-grassy finish. on the sweet side of pils. quite enjoyed anyway!

Quality pilsner with a good balance between floral hops and grassy malts. Alcohol sting on the end takes away slightly from total experience.

Had this in can at End of The Road Festival, Saturday 30th August 2014 Pours first piss of the morning yellow with a white head. Sweeter than expected, not so lagery with more of a sweeter malty edge. Good. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov13 3.3

Up in the danger zone: great grassy aroma; smooth, slightly sweet taste; snappy carbonation; and an easy finish. One could easily drink several painlessly.

(can) Pours a semi-hazy light yellow color with a voluminous white head that retains really well. Getting a heavy dose of pils malt in the nose, and it’s more on the doughy stripe than the crackery side of things. Little hint of honey and an abundant amount of lemon zest. Oddly enough, there’s a little hint of tropical fruit present in this that reminds me of tangerine or orange. It smells a bit like the orange colored Starburst and is heavily accented after you swirl the glass. Flavor contains more of that sweet bread dough quality, with a glimmer of honey and a slight mineral character that’s not nearly present enough to shear off the malty sweetness. There’s a little hint of the orange I picked up in the aroma, but it serves as a minor blip on the sensory radar screen. Everything tastes a bit muddled here, which is not a quality I look for in a good pils. Mouthfeel is medium and carb is appropriate. Overall, not a bad beer by any means, but this one will not be particularly memorable.

Barnoloid (200) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
This is a really well made pilsner. The hops are not massively prominent but give up enough to keep this interesting. Light bodied with well balanced carbonation. Does not leave a sickly corn taste like many other lager/pils beers. Easy to drink and good for those days where you need a refreshing, toned down beer to enjoy.

Rated based on notes taken 22 Jun 2012 -- This is a great simple pilsner. A little lacking in the hop department, but overall I could drink this all friggin’ day.
