hfmejias (1038) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAY 17, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured clear golden with a nice white head and decent lacing. Aroma of grain, citrus grassy hops. Taste is bitter slightly sweet, grain fruit and hops. Nice refreshing finish dry at the end too. Easy on the palate very drinkable, like it quite a bit.

Beerathon (1561) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Slightly hazed yellow pour with appropriate head. German malts and hop character comes through immediately. Fair amount of hop bitterness for pilsner, but entirely welcomed. Crisp and refreshing. Very solid representation of the style.

Scopey (9061) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2015
Can from Wholefoods. It pours lightly hazy pale gold with a decent white head. The nose is grassy, spicy, sweet cereal, touch of nougat and white bread. The taste is crisp, bitter, straw, grassy, sweet cereal, creamy aspect and white bread with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Crisp and tasty. A very good lager. Satisfying.

trapped (1385) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 17, 2015
Can. Pours pale yellow with small frothy white head, faintly doughy aroma, crisp malt taste, abrupt finish with a tangy end. It does remind one of Geman beers, but still not too spectacular.

MattShizzle (562) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Can - from sampler pack. Very light - crystal clear. Mostly clean aroma. A good, hoppy pilsner. Good session beer.

nimbleprop (5962) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bunch of 12oz pours at Lavanga in DC. Pours a murky straw yellow with some creamy, white head. Nose is fairly standard for a lager, yeast, straw, some dough notes, lemon. Flavor is consistent, enough lemony bite to cut through any sweeter marmalade notes, doughy, biscuit. Clean finish.

stevoj (2882) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Not too bad, but still lacking some of the crispness of the continental varieties. Nice body, et al but falls short

voyageurmike (147) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Clear light golden beer in a shaker, poured from can. Earthy hops over that pilsener taste, nicely balanced. Mildly bitter aftertaste.

jackafholmes (685) - - FEB 21, 2015
Can from beer hawk. Slightly Hazy yellow. Aroma of corn and a bit rubbery. Taste is better, good malty backbone and bitter hops finish. Prickly carbonation. Ok, had better pils.

dhatton (188) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Golden body, with thick, white head. To me, nose was primarily sweet maltiness. Some citrus and pine notes come out in the taste. Nice dry hoppy finish. Light body, very crisp and refreshing.
