This is absolutely the Best Pilsner I’ve ever had. Sat down at the bar in the SN Tap-room I was Not Dissappointed. Poured Nice yellow with slight head and good lacing. Good Hoppiness and flavor. This is a Must Have Brew. If you get the opportunity, try this, you love it! I wish they’d bottle this stuff.

My favorite Pilsner. A little darker than the average. Good hop flavor for a light beer. It also had a medium mouth feel but still drank very light. Every pilsner should model thier beer after sierra nevada's

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewery. Clear light golden with a 1 1/2 finger rocky white head great retention. Pasta and biscuit malts up front with some solid grassy and lightly spicy hops behind. Very light toastiness. Flavor is toastier with plenty of the aforementioned maltiness leading the way to a grassy bitter finish, peaking at a 3 that lingered a little while. Light to moderate carbonation with a light body. Pretty tasty and refreshing. Listed at 5.2% when I had it.

Draught at Burger for the SN tap takeover. I had been looking for this ever since they won the gold with it at the World Beer Cup last year. If someone relatively local is going to beat Trumer, you can bet I’m going to do my best to track down a fresh sample. Luckily, this bad boy didn’t disappoint at all. Round and bready pils malt sets a lean foundation for an ample amount of spicy and floral noble hops in both flavor and aroma. Light in body with ample but not excessive carbonation. I’m already a fan of summerfest, but this takes the noble hops to the next level. Very good pils.

Draught at Bishop’ Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Clear golden, brief head. Distinct grassy, spicy hop aroma. Dry with dense mouthfeel and light-medium body. Firm bready malt backs the hops perfectly. Marked but unassalting bitterness. Authentic, tastym and hugely drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Monk's RR/SN Dinner. Pours glowing translucent golden with a thin, sticky-laced white head. Aroma is fresh grassy hops, clean, fresh corn-on-the-cobb, soft hay and a slightly floral, honey-toned note. Medium bodied with a crisp, clean, elegantly bitter palate. Taste is all fresh-cut grass, pilsner hops, and very, very slight hints of light, savory-sweet corn. Finishes with a fairly strong, smooth, clean flourish. Fucking excellent pilsner.

Somewhat darker than a typical pils. Very bubbly with great head retention. Smells just like fresh clover honey--delicious! Soft, sweet bread-pudding malts with clotted cream. Too malty really to match up with the traditional conception of a pils but very delicious. Much like Lagunitas’ pils. Softly carbonated with a thick, tongue-enwrapping body. Definitely unexpected--a nice find.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Definitely the best pils I’ve ever tried. Poured yellow with lasting white head, leaves lace. Nice straw aroma with slight floral hoppiness. Good strong flavor for a pils, malty, bitter, clean. More body than most pilsners though still nice and light. This was a great drink along side of mass quantities of italian food.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewery: Clear and light gold. Light, but wholesome, malts have a light sweet-caramel base. Hops have notes of delicate flowers; gentle but aromatic; nice level of bitterness. Very clean.
