First a sweet flavor like an old milwaukee that turns into a sour slightly roasted pungent flavor. Sour yeasty smell. Not much mouth and throat feal. I must not care for this particular blend of hops.Not very good.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Poured a yellow color pilsner with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of grainy notes is not the most pleasant. Taste is also dominated by some grainy notes with a dry finish with light spicy finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not sure if I got a bad bottle here but this was not the most pleasant and I had hard time finishing a single bottle which is not what I was expecting considering the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.
