Pours pale and clear like a pilsener. Aroma is fresh and grassy. Flavour is full, slightly sweet and crisp. Great beer for a lager

This style is not for everyone but I love it. It is very hopforward, but in a grassy herbal kind of way that is definitely not an IPA. Really crisp and refreshing but with lots of flavor too.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light golden color with a thin film of white head. Aroma is of pungent yeast with some underlying hops. Flavor is initially bitter but then gives rise to a more doughy malt profile. This is one of the better pilsners I have had.

wasn’t expecting to like this one so much. and when i saw 5.6 abv for an "imperial" beer it left me feeling "wtf". but let me assure you, this is one of the best "strong lager" type beers i’ve ever been lucky enough to try. super smooth body, floral and earthy without any metallic off flavors or extreme grassiness. extremely well balanced. why can’t they replace summerfest with this??

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a golden color with soapy white head. Aroma is grassy hops, baked bread, lemon, and grains. Flavor is just like the aroma with grass and lemon hops followed by bread and cereal malts. I enjoy the flavor quite a bit more than the aroma. Medium-Light bodied on the palate both crisp and smooth. Very refreshing and quite flavorful.

An inviting pilsner. Very smooth and balanced. I am not a pilsner person, but respect this beer for what it is: a great representation of the style.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured a clear gold yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is grass, citrus, resin, and floral (really enjoyed the smell of this). Taste is zesty, spicy, and lemony with a crisp bitterness to it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Poured clear, brilliant golden with a nice white head. The aroma picked up crusty bread and mandarin orange, with accents of fresh grassy and herbal hops. The flavor found more bready malts at the core, with crisp lemon zest, fruity, and floral accents with residual grassy and fruity bitterness: tasty and very drinkable. Light-bodied, but with enough carbonation to keep it engaged. tangy, crisp, and well-balanced. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malt pilsner aroma with some hops. Clear yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Not much lacing left on the glass. Smooth pilsner, with some hop flavor and a light sweet malt taste on the palate. Sessionable beer with not much detection in alcohol. A very nice take on the pilsner...I would highly recommend to others if seeking this style.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from variety pack----> pilsner glass. Pours clear yellow with a small white head with no lacing.. Aroma is grass and faint lemony citrus. Taste is much the same as aroma with a hint of spice. Medium body with light carbonation. Probably my least favorite of the box set, but pilsner is typically not a style I seek.
