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.

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 (5207) - 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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2007
12oz can: Pours a transparent bright golden with a large, airy, well-lacing froth of white head. Slightly pale malty aroma has lots of fresh, floral Saaz hoppy character. Starts fairly true to style with a big, floral, almost soapy Saaz hoppiness and some pale German malt toward a crisp, lightly peppery spiced, thinner finish. A pretty decent pils.

(can - 12 oz) Hazy pale yellow color with a thick and puffy white head. Aroma is very hoppy and dry with some light citrus. Flavor is very dry at the beginning with a nice and balanced hop and malt middle and a very bitter and cleansing finish. Bitterness lingers for a bit. Not a bad pils.

I do love these cans...
Very clear coloured golden body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of nice hops, fresh malt and a very strong citrus scent. Light-bodied; Very perfect combination of hops and malt along with some sweet flavours tapped with a good alcoholic kick. Aftertaste shows a plentiful amount of fresh and high a.a. hops...very nice! Overall, definitely one to have again, especially in summer, and especially because of the can! I sampled this twelve ounce CAN purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 24-March-2007.

Can. Clear lemon in color. Quick foam that dissipates quickly. Brewery-tour hops aroma. Grassy, yeasty. Clean tasting and not overpowering. Bitter but not sharply so. Very nice and easy beer to take down while mowing the lawn
