3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale yellow with a thin soapy white head. Aroma is of pils malts, bready malts, spicy hops, grassy hops, and some pine. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice pils that is excellent for the style.

Considering this was out of can it looks the part. That said it does taste a bit homebrew, but in a nice way. Dry and refreshing with a bitter finish. Hardly amazing but pretty good as pilsners go.

12oz can pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a large white head. Malty aroma with light grassy hops. Taste of sweet and lightly spicy hops with sweet malt and light grain, mildly dry on finish. Nice and drinkable.

W aromacie fura diacetylu i lekkie nuty chmielowe, piwo niestety nie pierwszej świeżości, nawet konserwa nie pomogła. W smaku wytrawne, niestety z posmakiem maślankowym, ale tragedii nie ma, nadała ona fajnej gładkości, która wraz ze sporą goryczką stworzyła złudzenie picia pale ale na niemieckim chmielu. Dobrze ułożona goryczka, wysoka, ale odpowiednio skontrowana słodowością. Szkoda, że nie było świeże...

Pours a hazy golden color with a nice 1/2" to 3/4" head that clings nicely to the glass. Great hoppy aromas and taste. Very drinkable Pils.

Can from Beer Gonzo swigged with Octo and a cat liver tikka masala at curry house opposite, 19/09/14. Dusted yellow blonde with a low white foam.
Soft leather, lime, shrub, hint of peanut butter. Flowering shrub, chick pea with lime nose. Excellent clean shrub and honey flavour; lemony, oily, slightly leathery with a firm parting zest of bitterness. Pairs well with kolsch and curry.

A regular in my fridge this beer pours out into an imperial pint glass with a 3/4" head and a bright golden color. The aroma is of a nice mix of earthy, floral hops with a nice malt character in the background. The flavor is predicted by the nose with some background malt to balance out the earthy, floral flavors and bitterness. The finish tails off into light dryness that leaves one wanting another sip (even when the beer is gone). Overall this is a good example of a US brewed Pils beer that I’ll continue to enjoy into the future.

Can from MrBarleywine, thanks for the opportunity Mike!
Just a touch of haze in a deep straw colored liquid, topped with a creamy bubbly bone white head that persists forever leaving lots of stickies on the sides of the glass. Crackery bready malt aromas are nicely balanced with a bit of spicy floral hop. Light sulfur rounds out the nose. The flavor is rich bready crackery pilsner malt with spicy hop to counter. Slight metallic flavor towards the end is a bit off putting. I can imagine that this was a better beer when fresher, but I just noticed that this can is best by July 2014. Still no excuse for the metallic flavor. I will rate as is and hopefully get a chance to sample again.

Can. Looks like a pilsner -- bright golden color, rollicking top of white foam. The aroma hints at a quite biscuity brew, but instead I get a hop-forward beer, the tight malt taking a second seat. (#5759, 10/2/2014)

On tap at Red. Yellow with small white head. Yeasty bready aroma. More body and mouthfeel than a typical pilsner. Medium malt flavors with grassy hop finish.
