Fred82 (2093) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
12oz bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with medium foamy white head. Nice lacing.
Aroma : Crisp citrusy hops with chewy malty cereals. Slightly grainy. Light sweet malty notes.
Taste : Bitter hops with malt and light herbal notes. Fairly astringent bitterness. Finish malty with herbal hops. Rather dry on the finish with bitter hops.
Palate : Average carbonation.
Overall : Fairly average pilsner but not bad. A bit too bitter, well the bitterness is a bit too edgy. Malt is rather expressive. Mixed spicy notes on the finish. Ok but nothing special.

Bouteille de 12oz embouteillée le 15 janvier 2013. Liquide jaune blé passablement trouble avec un anneau de mousse blanche. Un nez de mie de pain, de petites cerises, citron et grains. La bouche est agréable, facile avec du pain et du grain. Une certaine amertume agrémente la finale.

SlovakSniper (2810) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Une bouteille née le 15 janvier 2013. Une robe jaune et sa coiffe en anneau. Un nez agréablement citronné et aimablement touchée par des parfums de céréales renfermées. Un goût qui ne cherche pas à faire de bruit. Des herbes, du citron et un murmure de douceur céréalière. Une bouche légère, remuée par des petites bulles et presque huileuse. Une finale sur des notes amèrement épicées. Une pils qui se marie bien aux chaudes journées estivales.

Pleasing fresh-beer aroma on uncapping which dissipates quickly. Light-bodied pour with a modest head. Very pale and surprisingly cloudy for a Pilsner; in appearance, more like a pale unfiltered wheat beer. Taste was pleasantly dry and crisp with just a hint of bitterness. Unfortunately, that bitterness lingered on the palette a bit too long, resulting in a bitter overall impression. If the bitterness could be brought into balance, this would be an excellent Pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My Bottom Line:
A whisper of lemon and herbs tickles this Pilsener’s hay-like malts for a easygoing example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the clear straw.
-The flavor profile is a tad tired. The hops lack a soothing bite and the malts lack crispness.
-Some hop spiciness develops bitterness in the finish.
-I need to try a fresher bottle than the one we just got here through private imports.

Bottle.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a nice gold color with a small white head. The nose is rather muted with a little bit of musty grain. The flavor has a slight malt sweetness with a touch of grain and a nondescript bitterness on the back end. It lacks crispness and bitterness. It just seems like a clumsy attempt. Much better examples are available on the shelf.

Pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt with a crisp finish. Good cleansing pilsner. OK lacing

12oz bottle from Party Source. Shared with b3shine. Bottled with love on 12/28/2012. Mostly clear golden yellow color. Thin white head. Good lace. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation, more dry in the finish. Nice balance of bready pilsner malts and crisp light bitter hops. Satisfyingly hoppy, a bit more on the hoppy side than your typical pils, which I like. Nice mild bitter taste. Good pilsner, even at 5 months old. Another solid brew schlafly.

Bottle to taster (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells doughy, lightly hoppy, and pleasantly skunky. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel (could use more of a pilsner snap). An easy-drinking tick.
