Bottle from Trader Joe’s in Davis, CA. Pours gold with a slight white head. Aroma is hoppy and bready. Med body. Flavor is quite hoppy. Bready with earthy/floral hop. Then it seems to go berry/melon. This hop aspect is all over the place. Quite nice tho. Liking it.

berkshirejohn (5018) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
12oz bottle from Orchard Fresh, Orchard Park, NY. AMber with a ring of white head; floral aroma; delicate tropical fruit taste with a solid grainy body, perhaps a little too sweet overall; and a clean floral bitterness to finish. Certainly different from the average pilsner.

joeneugs (3979) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. It pours a pleasing gold color with a white head. The aroma is strong with bready pilsner malt, light caramel and some grapefruit, orange fruit. The flavor is mildly sweet with some grape, citrus and caramel. Clean finish, but a little fuller bodied than I would like. The caramel flavors throw it off just a touch, but otherwise a very competent American PIlsner.
