Bottle to English pint glass. Pours straw yellow, two finger head, nice lacing. Aroma of German noble hops and hay. Taste is very balanced, sweet light malts, slight bitterness from the hops. Light bodied, lively carbonation, soft mouth feel. Finishes a bit malty for a Pilsner, slight lingering bitterness. Not the best or worst.

Slight off cabbage aroma at first. Perhaps not as sharp at first but goes there after a few moments. Decent co2. I have a place for saranacs in my collection of memories. Plain old pale lager appearance. Goes down fairly easy for its focused bite.

monkeychugg55 (851) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Clear golden with a nice white head. The aroma has some bready pils malt and Saaz hops, with some citrusy and herbal undertones. The flavor has some nice bready malt and subtle hops, with a slight tartness and only enough bitterness to balance. Full bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Nice, easy drinking pils but has fairly low bitterness for the style.

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
A golden pils with a thin white head. In aroma, crisp malt with grassy saaz hops, ok. In mouth, decent pils with mineral notes, grassy, saaz hops, nice. On tap at Empire Brewfest 2014.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. This was pretty good and maybe just a little weak on body and taste. Very refreshing for a hot summer day.

Aroma of yeast and a hint of hops, great looking beer golden color, lasting creamy head taste of hops and bread with a bitter hops finish.

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Clear golden pour with good white head. Slight noble hop aroma and more so in the flavor but very smooth and butter. Hints of honey and lilac. Floral with a decided woody hop tannin lingering bite. I’d take the victory Prima Pils over this, but still, quite drinkable in its own right..
