1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very light beer, thin head on top. Not much aroma to this beer except a very very mild malt sweetness. Flavor is much the same way. Fizzes in your mouth and then is gone. None of the grassy flavors that I would expect to find in a pils.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very Bright and clear. Strong carbonation that maintains a very thin layer of foam at the top. This beer in a glass is very atractive to look at. Aroma and flavor are not spectacular but pleasent. Palate is a bit soft and feels unfiltered or dusty. I'd buy it again, and would probly be very refreshing on a hot day.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
So forgettable I actually forgot to rate it. On my third sample, it occurred to me I probably had had it before. There is nothing here. Light citrus, lighter malt, simply zero. When I think of beer geeks who claim that light lagers are boring, I'm sure that this beer is not far from their mind. An embarassment.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw tint to the golden color, white head, very weak nose with only a slight hoppy tone, the nice balance & flavors really only come through in the finish, medium in body, initial flavors don't yeild a whole lot, a bit on the fizzy side

A crisp clean american pilsner with a bit of hop bite. A drinkable thirst quencher.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice pilsner. Nice clean flavor, good hop presence. Not a bad beer when you're in the mood for a lighter pilsner type.

Not a terribly exciting pils, which is fine, but something was off in the nose. (On tap @ Pyramid Alehouse, Berkeley)

It is fresh, crisp and clean like the description states. I wasn't expecting too much from another pilsner, but this is surprisingly good. I could definitely see myself drinking this again.

First pyramid product didnt know what to expect. Opened the bottle, swirled and began pouring. Great aroma, mildly spicy hops, and some softer yeast aroma. Very hazy amber with some deeper orange/gold hues at the bottom. Just right on the white head. Good amount of sediment; bottle conditioned! Starts out with a fresh lightly bitter hops flavor that is in the background. Up front I find a good amount of honey flavor that is quite delicate. As it progresses there is a creamy texture, good medium body and a wonderful wonderful wonderful clear hops finish, something like Goldings, or tettnang. I wondered if it would hold up as it warmed and to my surprise the hops flavor was magnified and the body remained medium. Good carbonation level, only a touch wateriness in the middle, very very fresh flavor. Could use a bigger bolder flavor, but it is great for what it is, a nice delicate lighter pilsener. No trace of any metallic flavor in this bottle.
