COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden-colored, medium-bodied lager has plenty of German and Czech hops for smooth bitterness and aroma.

Pleasant hoppy aroma. Flavor is far too sweet and sour for a German or Czech pilsner, but has hops of a similar character; metallic finish like many German beers. Hay / straw combined with a strong yeast presence in the aroma gives a pronounced barnyard character. If there is one beer that exhibits a "barnyard" characteristic, it is this one. An enjoyable beer, but I found I was better able to appreciate it once I let go my expectations of Pilsner. I would not say this is true to the style, especially not a Czech or German Pils. I would like this beer much better I think if it were lighter, crisper, and less sweet. As it is, it is drinkable and enjoyable though.

ilovedarkbeer (2379) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pours a straw color with a bubbly white head. Notes of earthy spicy hops, fresh cereal grains, and spring water. Crisp, refreshing, and displaying a decent malt backbone.

JDBaker11058 (1428) - Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Appearance: clear bright gold with one finger of bright white head that lasts and last, with better than average lacing. Aroma: sweet creamed corn, cereal grains, grass, hay, and freshly cracked pepper. Taste: bready and surprisingly full-flavored, with honey, crackers, lemon zest, grass, hay, a hint of sweat sock, and sweet corn tamale over a good dose of floral/herbal hops. Finish: sweet bready notes last a bit, with a good dose of lasting hop character. Notes: This isn’t a pilsner that’s content to be your typical drink-it-and-forget it beer. It’s not particularly great, but it’s bold and well-constructed for what many American breweries seem to consider a "filler" to their rotation.

Pours light straw yellow with moderate white top. Aroma is straw and cereal malts. Taste is grainy with small noble hop. Unassuming and unimaginable.

shrubber85 (8330) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Lightly sour corn and barley malt aroma. Bright yellow with nice white head. Sweet barley malt and hay flavor with a hint of lemon. Decent flavor but more in line with a Premium Lager as hops are pretty subdued.

BOSSbrewer (2258) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Had at the Tap Room in St. Louis in the summer of 2011. Not a fan of the style. This is a micro lawnmower beer. But a bit pricy for that.

Fred82 (2115) - 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.

rodenbach99 (3397) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
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 (3576) - Candiac, 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.
