Pours a golden yellow. Nice citrus with hoppy first taste. Very good pils with a solid refreshing kick. The aroma doesn’t come through much, but the tastes are a nice change of pace. For the price, $3 for a 16 oz bottle, it is worth a try, but not an everyday option. 90%.

Pours light head with fluffy head that disappears very quickly. Not a good sign--I suspected this was watery after I poured it and it was. Tastes mainly of malt with a hint of hops. Pretty mediocre.

Pours light yellow with a nice white head. Average head retention. Decent Aroma with notes of spicy hops. Malt present and not well balanced with hops. Decent but not great

DYCSoccer17 (3285) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle purchased at the Covell Nugget in Davis, CA. Light banana-lemony yeastiness in the aroma with a bit of breadiness and doughiness present, too. A few faint hints of some noble spiced hop aromas. Mostly transparent light yellow body with a nice white head that leaves nice lacing. Creamy, lightly sweet maltiness to start. Has a nice body with a lot of graininess present in the middle. Finishes with some light spiced noble hoppy flavors. Not quite as crisp as I expect in a pils. Could be a little more dry, too. Still ok.

Bottle; bb 27/07/07 (pushed this to the end). Clean aroma of grassy or floral hop, but not a strong one. Light brassy gold color with a serious white head that tries to lace. Thin to medium bodied. A bit of strength in the carbonation, but little bite. It goes a bit creamy. The flavor is pale malt with what might be noble hop. The finish is fairly dry, clean and the hop is there for balance. The long finish is quite dry with a decent amount of bitter.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Slightly hazy yellow pour. Aroma is somewhat malty with a bit of a hop presence. Interesting prune/dark fruitiness. Some bitterness in the finish. I think I may have an old bottle, still it isn’t bad.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2007
UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Last of the pilsners from Hollingshead Deli, purchased there and consumed later that night at Dr. Bill’s lovely abode on 3/22/07
Ok, this one should be the best of any of them, having a best before date of 2009. Not sure why any brewery would give a best before date of 2009 on a pils when it’s only 2007, but whatever, that’s what it said.
Very encouraging appearance boasts a deep golden body with darker honey tones and a very large, frothy white head that is well-retained and provides moderate lacing.
Tons of lemon icing and intensely herbal hops in the nose signify a very straightforward CGP. Dryness seems right away to be on the low side, but there’s a ton of yeast crispness on the finish that bails it out, somewhat. A bit carbonic, and with some definite paperiness, however. Medium strength of aroma, no alcohol.
Lemon and pear notes in the flavor collide with plenty of honey. It dries out significantly through the middle, thanks to a lightly grainy (somewhat crackery) malt character and a strong carbonic flavor (producing a dry and watery feel, unfortunately). Medium-high carbonation, with the hops lasting well in to the finish. But theyre not exactly bursting with freshness and bright character. They seem a bit too old/fruity-like and the finish ends with a slight metallic note, even. Drinkable, but nothing exceptionally well-made, despite its obvious traditional intentions.

Slightly cloudy yellow body with a airy head. Yeasty and grainy aroma. Best part about this beer is the "warm" malt finish, it is a nice touch. Otherwise, it is a fine pilsener; a very nice pilsener indeed.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - AUG 16, 2006
Pours with a really pale yellow color, looks a lot like Coors Light. However it has the classic European Pilsner aroma and flavors. A distinct mustiness, with flavors of grain and a bitter finish. An easy drinking beer.
