Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Deeply hazy yellow hue. Grassy, grapefruity, bready aroma…a little odd with that grapefruit in there. Accent on the palate is towards grapefruit, with a slightly toasted note as well. Too much fruitiness from top-fermentation and it doesn’t feel smooth enough either. A lager yeast would be recommended for next time (note: the bottle I had said it was Pacman yeast...I can’t say I tasted this but there were too many signs of top-fermentation and lack of lagering to ignore).

argo0 (11328) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2004
(RBSG04) Hazy straw body topped by medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, candi sugar, fruity (orange, melon). Taste is mild sweet, big bitter (herbal/rgassy), lemon. Some acidity, light-medium body. Aggressive, and good.

3fourths (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Murky yellow, hazy nose, straw-like and crisp lemons... yeasty finish, once again the pacman comes out... not entirely bad, but doesn’t work with the grainy and crisp lemon pilsner flavors as much as with other styles.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2004
Intresting hoppy aroma that I think must be the Sterling hops which are new to me. Slightly hazy pale yellow with a nice white head. Not bad, but not doing much for me. An excellent pilsener that failed to catch me in a pilsener frame of mind.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 21, 2004
Aroma consisted of lighter sweet malt, followed by soft hoppy aroma. Cloudy gold with white head. Clean medium bodied, slightly on maltier side despite claim of 40 IBU. Rather average pils. Hops do show up but sadly to late to save the day.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle pours a hazy golden color, with substantial head and carbonation. Prominent lacing unlike most pilsners I seem to find. Aroma is somewhat hay/straw like. Initial taste is a bit sweet with an effervescent mouthfeel. The finish quickly turns mildly bitter and then slowly fades away leaving your mouth thinking you had a mild IPA. Definately worthy of having another.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 15/20
Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Somewhat hazy for a pilsner, but with the classic monster sticky, sudsy, foamy head. Beautiful czechy aroma. Similarly good flavors here ... lightly cerealed, but with good hoppy base. Among the better American pilsners I’ve tried. Job well done, if maybe a bit thin. Previous negative raters: you’re dorks.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Clear golden color, white head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is crisp with saaz, light malt. The flavor is very balanced one of the best pils I've had. Dry finish, light and easy drinking pils. The trademark pacman taste definately feels through here.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 3, 2004
(RBSG 2004) Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is grassy and grainy. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Fruity and orangish. Nice pilsner, a little aggressive with the hops, but it kind of works. Light and refreshing.. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head, and light lacing. Grainy hop, and sweet malt aroma. Hops and light citrus, very nice citrus lager taste. Quite refreshing!
