Roasty.. I got a distinct taste of roasted marshmallows from this drink. Golden! What I imagine a Pilsner is supposed to be like.

29 June 2004 - Pronounced fruit malt aroma. Clear golden orange, low head, suds lacing. Nice bitter sweet malt balance, floral hoppiness that lingers. Slight fizziness and a medium mouthfeel. Not being a big fan of pilsners this is definitely a pilsner I would be happy to drink.

Bottled. Spicy, hoppy boquet. A great, clean pilsner with crisp bitter finish. My favorite next to Budvar.

Canned. Bit of a grassy smell, but had some pissy and ethanol undertones I didn’t like. Otherwise fairly well-crafted; the bitterness hits you right away and has a short dry finish. A little thin at the end. Don’t let it get too warm.

On tap at Houlihan’s. Pretty standard pilsener. A somewhat bitter end to the taste. Back of the mouth tase. Not bad at all.

Fair beer. Probably much better out of the tap than after an Atlantic voyage and who know how long warehoused and stored. Slightly more orange than the typical American pilsener. Flavor is grassy. Nice malt start and hop finish.

Has a golden color and has a lot of flavor and bite, and a little bitter. I guess I was expecting better but maybe i’m just not a pilsner kinda guy.

en excellent pilsner. some sweet malty taste followed by a decent bitter ending. of course the hops get less pronounced as you finish the beer. a faint salty buttery taste. often one of the best beer on tap bars around me.

Not my favorite style but about as good as it gets in a pilsner. Can be stunning when fresh. a good way to wean your friends off Bud now that it is widely available.

All these years i thought this beer was crap, and off tap i was really shocked, turns out to be a damn nice pilsner. A nice golden color with a white head that leaves moderate lacing. Taste has some straw and light maltiness but is balanced very well with a good floral hop backing.
