UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 Pale golden color with a white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is light with some hoppiness. Lots of carbonation on the palate. The taste is interesting if not great. Bitter fruit and mild hops. Not a whole lot of aftertaste. Not a bad brew, but not great.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance had a hazy burnt transparent orange color with a less than a half finger’s worth of white foamy head. There was some light lacing sliding into the beer. The aroma smelled burnt with what seemed to try to have some pilsner malts, but that’s about it. The taste was somewhat toasty sweet but still seemed off and I couldn’t quite right place it. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and was pretty sessionable. There was barely any carbonation. Overall, nothing close to being remotely close to mediocre. I would not have this again.

bleccchh. Not good. Watery-looking brew with minimal head. Not too bad on the front, but then comes the lingering saccharin and copper-penny aftertaste. Drink ice-cold or suffer the consequences.

Not a pilsener at all. A pale lager. IT is tart and watery. This beer was never even lagered I would suspect.

It’s nice to have a good Pilsener every once in a while (or more often), and this is a fine example of the style, but honestly it gets much better.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Clear yellow with a white head. Weird fruity (raspberry?) aroma. Taste is sweet honey malt with ligth herbal hops -- not enough to be a pilsener.

mansquito (3385) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Umm... it pours a boring pale lager color with a mediocre looking head all over the top, but that leaves you after a short while. Aroma is that cheap lager aroma... not exactly macro-crap lager aroma, but close to that. Slight sweetness in there, along with some breadiness maybe. Not really anything in the way of hops. Not offensive though and rather drinkable... the problem isn’t drinkability, it is taste.

obguthr (3827) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2009
The third of the Wingwalker trifecta: Faint aroma of lemon and barley malt. Clear yellow, no head. Lemony flavor, cardboardy finish. No trace of a hop to be found. Very bland. Worst of the three.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2009
12 ounce bottle from a Fresh Market somewhere in Virginia Beach, VA. Pours a very clear golden amber color with a medium head. Average head retention and fair lacing. Aroma is sweet grainy malts with caramel and red apple. Taste is sweet malts, caramel and that same apple note from the aroma. Thin bodied. Watery.
