1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
European Pilsner? Not even close. The flavor profile is strongly dominated by the late addition of very coarse hops. The aroma is similarly floral. Not sure why Shell´s is making a Pils that tastes like a West Coast IPA, but that is what this is. It would appear that they do not know how to produce a genuine Czech or German Pilsner, so they pawn this off on us instead.

Excellent Pilsner beer which is normally a style that’s just OK to me but I could easily session a few of these. No skunk flavor just clean and super easy to drink. I actually liked their Firebock Vienna Lager better but this is good. If you like Pilsner you have to try this.

Keg @ Mimosa, MPLS. Light gold with a small head. Creamed corn and husky grain. Light epoxy hops. A hit of apple sauce. Nicely light and zippy. Lovely. A great cheap option.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent pilsner. Beautiful golden color, smell and taste is clean and crisp with a little citrus hop flavor and smell as a pilsner should be. If your looking for lots of hops and bold flavor you should be buying a double IPA and not a pilsner. One of the best pilsners I've had.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass
Appearance: Pours a thick sudsy 3" white head that recedes very slowly with plenty of lacing. Color is pale straw with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: bready malts, yeast, some grass and bitter hops.
Mouthfeel: light bodied and frothy with a mostly dry finish.
Flavor: pungent earthy and grassy hops balanced with sweet lightly toasted barley.
Overall: well done pilsener, very much to style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear brownish yellow. Hard water, lemon curd, honey aroma. Light vanilla and lactic notes. Clean enough, never unpleasant.
Subdued, mostly sweet grain and honey nut Cheerios flavor. Moments of lemon acidity and clangy metallic notes.
This example lacks in both body and carbonation level. The finish shows a flash of saaz like spice and dry grass, and mutes itself quickly.
