Bottle. Sweet pils malt aroma and slightly fruity. Good color, yellow with not much of a head. Dry, crisp, and fairly malty. A touch of fruit in the finish, possibly an off-flavor from fermentation but not off-putting.

Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is grassy and earthy with a bit of skunkyness...notable malty hay. Flavor has spicy, grassiness...faintly skunky. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a skunky/spicy finish.

12 oz. bottle from the magical beer place that is Michigan. Bright, hazy golden pour. Aroma of citrus, strong pilsener malt, nice, strong leafy hops. Flavor is citrus, leafy hops, pale malts. Not quite crisp enough. Seems to be suffering from a lack of carbonation. It just needs some nice carbonation to make it solid. I opened a bottler earlier that was completely flat. Crazy. I feel with a touch more carbonation this would have been an excellent pils. Bummer. What could have been, etcetera and so forth.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Bright yellow color, no head. Lemon citrus aroma that is very pleasant. Taste is not however. Very dry citrus taste that is not refreshing. Lingering aftertaste is not good either. Drain-pour. Re-rate 3/25/13 - I think I was a little harsh rating this last time. Definitely not a drain pour, it’s really just an ok pilsener.

Pours pale yellow into a Sam glass. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to nothing. Sour lemon and corn aromas. Sweet marshmallow and bitter lemon upfront turning to grapefruit in the lasting finish.

Hazy, lemon color; big pilsener head; first sip I thought seemed buttery, but it was okay after that; by far better than standard BMC adjuncts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottles sampled in a shaker and large Gulden Draak tulip glass,
this beer had a clear pale yellow pour and made a two finger white head that receded to a thin cover, effervescence was medium or a little more, the glass looked lively, and this beer left spots, partial rings and small sheens lacing on the glass as I drank, there was a very thin film of light colored sediment on the bottom of the bottle,
the nose was light malt, light cracker, faint floral notes and sour citrus with a faint white sugar like sweetness in the background,
the flavors were light malt, a little lemon with a sour citrus,
the finish had a sour-citrus bitterness that hung around a bit and left the palate dry,
the mouth feel was light and it left the palate dry after the finish,
a nice, light drinking beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, very bright yellow gold with a white head. Aroma is citrusy hops, lemon especially, herbal and earthy aromas, pilsener malt. Crisp but solid herbal and citrus hoppiness with biscuity malts and slight earthy hops again. Quite a good pilsener.

Thanks to deuane for handing me a glass of this less than a second after I entered his home, a very nice welcome indeed.
A - Pours clear straw yellow with a fluffy one and a half finger tall white head leaving small streaks of lace down the glass.
S - Smells fairly grainy with a touch of noble hop bitterness creeping in as it warms up to room temperature.
T - Starts off with a good bit of cereal malt slowly giving way to a bit of hop bitterness. Finish is a mix of chewiness and dulled hop bitterness, lingering on the pallet for quite awhile.
M - Chewy body and a light flavor with moderate carbonation, leaving the pallet a touch dry through the finish.
O - A very nice light pilsner. I would have preferred a bit more hops but I still appreciate this one for what it is. I could easily drink a bottle or two of this no problem.
