There’s cans in there too! Nice extra from markgugs - thanks! Beautiful looking and quite lively, this baby is saaz-tastic. Crisp and perky flavors, super-refreshing after a post-work run.

[can from Zathrus] Clear straw color, virtually no head. Lemony flavors, with very sweet malts and some spicy noble hop presence. Not really my thing, but overall pretty drinkable.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Can sampled. Pours golden with a large white head. Aroma of spices, lemon, citrus, and saaz hops. The flavor is sweet malts, citrus, and a lemony dry bitter finish. Good brew.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Can from Zathrus. Pours with little head, very golden yellow. Lots of cookie malts in the nose with spicyness from the saaz. Chewy and hopped up flavor with a large malt body -- a little too much. Not the most drinkable beer in the world, especially for its style. Not bad.

Pours a clear golden color beneath a massive white foam of a head. Clean grain-like aroma with zesty hop notes. Great balance, lightly sweet malts tempered by sharp hops. Hints of grass and maybe a touch of lemon. A pretty decent pils over all.

On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. I hate pilseners. I hate everything about them. From the way they smell skunked, even when fresh, to the way it has that pee color, to the taste that fits somewhere in between the earlier 2 deScriptions. That being said, don’t pay my rating too much attention. The only thing i like less than Pils are IPAs.

jsquire (3981) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a pale gold out of the can (which I am still getting used to), with a frothy white head that audibly crackled. Nose has noticable lemon citrus hops notes. Clean, crisp beer, with a subtle grassiness, dry malt sweetness, and some lemon in the finish. Dry beer, and very easy to drink. Thanks to Zathrus13 for the can.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2007
Can, courtesy of Hogtown Harry. Neat glowing yellow, foamy white head. Really neat looking in the glass, lemon like - gotta go 5 this was awesome. Really sharp pils hops with a dry underlying sweetness in taste. Aroma was a little muted, but the hops came through. Very bitter and quite refreshing. A really really good pils.

Boutip (5468) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2007
Can courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a hazy deep yellow color pils with a nice white foamy head with average retention. Aroma of dry malt with some crisp german hops. Taste is also dominated by some dry malt and a dry crisp hoppy finish. Body is above average with some low filtration and lees at the bottom. While this is a good pils I thought it miss some of the floral aspect that I usually like in the style.
