Golden in color with a dry hop floral aroma and intense hop bitterness supported by a big malty backbone which culminates into a hedonistic mouthfeel. Yee haw!

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2004
On Tap: Clear straw hue with a small fuffy white head and some lace. The aroma hints of piney and floral hops, buttery biscuit, grassy notes, and light malty tones. The taste starts with good balance but the hops became more aggressive as I drank, but never did overpower. Some yeasty character and lingering bitterness upon the finish. Lively, crisp mouthfeel. A damn good pilsner, recommended.

I feel a little guilty drinking this now, being considerably congested, but spring break is around the corner and I cannot leave this lying around. Regardless, A nice sized head and a slightly clowded golden color to it. Flavor has a small bitterness at first, then a clean robust mouthfeel to it. Fairly sweet aftertaste, kind of grassy, and slighty acidic. A good pilsner, but I agree, it would be slightly hard to classify this as one.

Hazy gold with a white head. Starts off intense IPA like bitterness, but mellows out halfway down. The malts a very clean and lagerish. This isn't a bad beer, and is nice for a change of pace, but I feel inside this overweight 9.9%er is a really good 5%er struggling to be free.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Lighly hazy deep gold, very nice lasting white head. Very clean when chilled, but a light DMS creeps in as it warms. Also a very nice floral hop aroma w/ some underlying maltiness. Clean of esters from fermentation. Falvor seems well balanced, but definitely to bitter, slightly harsh and not rounded for pils style. Lightly spicey yeast bite/flavor, also some herbal hop, although it seems to have a grassy hop aftertaste. Still no esters from fermentation. Low carbonation, fuller bodied, alcohol warming but well hidden and dry m/f. Although not "true" to a pils style, this is a very good, drinkable beer. Slight off aromas/flavors take away from it being clean, but still cleaner than a lot of true pils of normal gravity.

guzzler67 (1670) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Golden, slightly hazy appearance. Floral, fruity aroma. After the first sip you'll realize this is not your typical pilsner. A good, hefty body with a balanced sweet malt and hop taste. Dry, bitter finish.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Draft: Golden color & crystal clear. Fruity and sweet, with a strong hoppy presence. Alcoholic and acidic. Not sure if I'd call this a pilsener, but it was certainly unique.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Pours a yellow/orange hue with a thick, frothy white head. I couldn't really pick up any aromas other than a slight yeasty/strawy smell. Flavor is full of flavor on the palate. Sweet on initial taste and quick dissapearing. Tastes like pilsner urquell on steroids.

Shag (2843) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Sampled at the Wayside Tavern in Cumming, GA. Golden color with a moderate head. Flavor was hoppy for the style with a nice malt profile. Suprisingly it had some citrus and caramel present in the flavor. Probably the most complex pilsner I've ever had. A very well balanced beer. The experience surrounding this beer was also wonderful. I toasted in my #500 rating with many other fellow ratebeerians who were also sampling this beer on the Atlanta Pub Crawl.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Pours a deep golden with a quickly dissipating head. Really big bubbles with a pungent if not stale noble hop aroma. Sweet on the tip of the tongue with a bitterness at the back of the throat. Warms as it reaches the stomach. A ligering sweetness prevails making the beer taste less like a pils and more like a helles bock. Very one-dimensional as well. Should have added some light munich and had a lower mash temperature to achieve better attenuation with less residual sweetness. Not bad but I would have expected more from Rogue and from a beer that costs $11 a bottle. JEEZ MAN!
