Thanks to Dad for this one. Rather malty pilsner. Alcohol bit at the end. Pretty decent. Serving: Bottle

Honey colored with an inch of white head. Aroma is ginger, honey and lemon. Taste is like an alcohol-heavy cough-drop formulation of the aroma. Almost reminds me of a rum-punch. $3/12oz

Dorwart (2371) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Thin head which receedes quickly. Light malt aroma with some cereal grains, lemon and a bit of earthy hops. Color is a golden orange. Very smooth and soft malty palate. Some lemon and a bit of herbal hops. Some sweet malts and honey. Noticable alcohol presence but does not detract from the flavor. Finishes malty and bitter. A pretty darn good pilsner that many people would like.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of honey, grain, grass, and a touch floral. Flavor shows the same with some raw alcohol that was also present on the nose. Overall body is moderate to full, sweet, and hot.

EithCubes (4833) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle. Nose is very grassy, green with little shoots of citrus growing in. Some earthy caramel and sweet vanilla. Pours a lightly-sick golden with a creamy white head. Taste is more sweet than bitter but has neither in spades. Lots and lots of honey – indeed, the dominant flavor – with lesser marshmallow and vanilla. The grassy and floral hops are pushed to the very back. Body is full but oily and boozy. Aftertaste is a bit grainy. I think this would go down under guilty pleasure – an obviously flawed beer that I would be happy to share a few moments with. Before the eventual headache.

Pours a murky orange with just a little less than a finger of slightly yellowish head. Light malts in the aroma. Kind of low key flavor, just sort of a muted syrupy sweetness that shows a bit of the alcohol by the end. I’m kind of unimpressed.

vikingguy (801) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pours a vivid gold with tall white head. Lots of floating sediment. Near indetectable aroma. Pretty good taste...very malty for a pilsner, citrus/spicy hops, long bitter finish. Creamy texture with medium/full body. Very strong at 8.5% and you can tast it on the finish. Alcohol not very well hidden. This is good, not great.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is grainy and grassy with a medium sweet honey and some floral fruits. Flavor is similar. Rich pilsner malts and some honey with a cereal grain sweetness. Some floral fruits, apricots, and grassy with a dry, mostly crisp finish and light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a light to medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad beer. Easy drinking and clean while never getting overly sweet or malty like some others in this style. Solid hop flavor too.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Nose is grassy with hints of corn and bread and alcohol. Pours golden orange with a foamy ring. Corny, grassy, bready, fussely, ewith hop bitterness in the finish. Kind of sticky and hot. Not all that good.
