Sampled from can at Standard Market, Westmont. Not much tops a really fresh pilsener, even out of a can or bottle. But the style is very delicate and demanding, which is why there are not many small brewer versions on shelves. This one has a sharp, peppery nose of Noble German hops, pale yellow, with a welcome beer fizz. taste is clean, with light malts working hand-in-hand with those hops.

12 ounce can. Medium golden color. Small Rocky white head. Crisp lemony malt flavor has a yeasty, grainy note. Grassy hops with a wheat-like character. Dry citrus finish.

Mad_Ferret (780) - SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2015
Can from SB. Clear golden with a medium white bubbly head. Sweet floral aroma with straw, honey, citrus, carambola and some grass. Sweet floral bready flavour with carambola, whipped cream, sweet citrus and grass. Soft bitterness. Medium to light bodied, soft carbonation, slight oily. Not totally orthodox but I like it! Drinkable and refreshing.

Pilsnerfärgad med litet vit skum. Doftar och smakar lite citrus med lagom beska. Bra pilsner

När pilsnern åker en enkel resa över Atlanten upphör tydligen alla lagar att gälla. Görs den inte till oigenkännelighet blaskig så ska den i stället pumpas full med amerikanska humlesorter. Tyska och tjeckiska pilsnerpuritaner gråter givetvis floder på grund av dylika tilltag. Vi andra kan väl drista oss till att erkänna att åtminstone humleexperimentet ändå kan vara fullt gångbart.

Turtles (771) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2015
355ml can from Systembolaget. Clear golden, medium size, white head, some lacing. Floral and grassy hop aroma together with white bread. Crisp mouthfeel just like the name says, medium carbonated. Taste is refreshing with nice grassy hops, fresh citrus, lemon zest and white bread in the background. Very drinkable!

heemer77 (5196) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Can. Slightly hazy bright gold. a dense off white head. The doughy nose has some grass and hints of citrus. Flavors of citrus tinged bread and hay are present. The finish is pleasing with a black pepper bite. Nicely done with a little bit of a sweet character. Solid.

malvrich (122) - durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2015
12 oz can into a plisner. Best by 8/22/2016 so I figure a 12 month cycle so I call best by 2/22/16. A: Clear medium gold with largish slow bubbles visible. A hard pour left an inch of tight foam despite the big bubbles. Nice lacing without lifting the glass. Sheeted all throughout the glass as drunk. S: Lemon, lemon cake and saltines. Maybe a whiff of wheat. Light but delicious aroma. A hint of alcohol toward the end of the glass. T: The expected cracker bite is noticed first with the lemon smack right behind. Plus zest now. That’s pretty much it other than a slight wheaty yeast note. It works. Very good although I expect the malts will round out as it warms as I notice them as a bit thin. Especially at 5.4% ABV. M: Very slick, fine textured foam is still around and coats. "Elegant" stuff like I see Prima described. O: I don’t want to gush but this may be my new favorite pilsner. A tad stronger than my preference but very few contenders for my praise in the style. The lemon may get to be a bit much after awhile and it does have a thinness to the malts but this is a great pils.

Can 355ml. This is overall a decent lager. A bit on the hoppy side and a lot of freshness but no truly outstanding characteristics.
