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.

Draft. Dark amber color with a thin head. Good hop aroma. Very tasty hops flavor; not too strong, not weak. There is almost some wood present. I imagine this can be quite skunky when not on tap.

A Crisp typical pilsner bight, with a hoppy, slightly fruity flavour.
Not a bad drop for a sunday afternoon, or a casual drink.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2015 Slight hoppy flavor, with a little bit of bitterness. Has a good strong flavor that hides the skunk, so that you can barely taste it. I’m not a huge pilsner fan, but this is better than alot of them.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2005 8/8/2004 (bottle) -
Reddish gold color, clear body. White frothy head. Nice fresh Saaz aroma. I’m trying to decide if I am getting occaisional skunk hints. It seems fine though. Taste is dry and lightly hopped grain. Seems a little papery to. Pretty good nonetheless. (7 / 4 / 7 / 3 / 14)

Didn’t really rate this, but it is great on tap. Light bodied, but occaisionally fruity and almost oily Saaz hops. Better on tap. Nice amber color; better than my friend’s Lite, which some chick thought was water. (7 / 4 / 7 / 4 / 15)

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 660ml Bottle. Can be a little prone to skunking, but when it is fresh it is superb. Good Saaz hop aroma and hoppy bitterness. Fairly dry tasting, lovely bitter finish. One of the best pilseners I have had.
