3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Now this is the way a pilsener should taste. Pours a deep golden coloring, with a big puffy head. The aroma was very full and flowery, and smells very sweet. The taste was sweet and rich, with a nice bit of clove in the flavor with a nice effervescent mouthfeel. Goes down very easily, and you can drink it over and over.

Cloudy golden color,small white head that faded fast leaving little behind.The aroma was malt and caramel with a semi sweet side to it.The taste was malt and high on caramel with a nice sweet side and faint hops.A fairly drinkable brew that goes down smooth and is well worth getting if you can find it.

cloudy yellow-orange with a nice head that disappears immediately. sweet yeasty odor... medium body. this was great in the sun with chips. this is an unpopular style amongst the snobs, but this particular pilsner is well made and tasty. it's not savory --it's refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
light hazy gold color with floaties. Nice sized head initially but dissipates quickly, moderate lacing. The aroma is lightly malty with a touch of diactyl, hop presence is almost nil; slightly musky. Flavor is lightly nutty and some buiscuit malt, not very clean tasting though. Almost no body and a lingering mouthfeel. A middle of the road german pilsner with a touch of citrusy.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light malty aroma with notes of grains and yeast. The color is a slightly hazy dark yellow and it has a fantastic head - very lively. The flavor is malty sweet with notes of bread, straws, aroma hops, and yeast. The end is hoppy and very bitter - especially for a pilsener - it ends on a lemony sourness with oils from hops lingering on the tongue. The flavor is very complex - especially for a pilsener - but the compostition is not great on my tastebuds - to sour an end, and too weak a body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color, well carbonated with a splendid head and a sourdough lemongrass aroma. Light to medium bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel, some caramel and bubblegum sweetness up front, turning citrusy and almost astringent, with a slight bitterness at the end. An unusual beer, seemed fresh and aged at the same time but not at all stale. I thought it really improved as it warmed some.

Pilsner color with various floating yeasties. Thin white head. Smells like sweet slightly skunked beer. Very nice flavor. Slight hops bitterness, very smooth mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy wheat color body with a large colony of tiny suspended particulates and a sudsy white head. Fragrant grassy hop aroma overlying butterscotch, fruit, and nuts. Flavor is less appealing with a non-hop bitterness in the finish that tastes off. Disappointing in the end.
