Golden with a white head. Aroma is full of earthy hops, fruits, toasty malts. Medium, crisp body. Flavor is cereal grains, earthy hops, light fruit. Finish is long and bitter. On the hoppier end for a Pils. Very nice.

On draft. Clear yellow like Miller Light. Nose is floral hops, bread. Flavor is sweet and light, malty, with mildly bitter finish. Nice but nothing to drink a second time.

warhawk91 (242) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 3, 2014
12 oz. can. Pour is clear straw gold, big fluffy white head. Aroma is mild hops and citrus, a bit of orange. Taste is a light bready malt with some citrus notes and hop spiciness with mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light which helps give this beer a clean and crisp finish. Nothing remarkable, but a nice session beer.

From can. Pours gold with substantial head and lacing. Bubbles throughout as you drink. Aromas of lemon zest, citrus, and hay. Smooth mouth feel. Grassy notes compliment the sweet, citrus flavors. The beer flattens out a bit about halfway through. Not bad, not great. An average pils.

Lata de 355ml (12fl.oz). Vaso Pilsner con pier. Color pajizo pálido y apariencia nublada. Corona blanca, tupida y persistente. Aromas florales, perfumados, picantes y afrutados. Los gentiles sabores de maltas pálidas con notas de pan son atravesados por un amargor afrutado. Cuerpo ligero/medio y carbonatación moderada/suave. Toque picante y final prolongado de amargor floral. Refrescante y equilibrada. Retrogusto reseco con trazos de fruta madura. Una agradable sorpresa reencontrar el sabroso Estilo Pilsner que, desgraciadamente, es castigado, con frecuencia, por la producción industrial. 355ml (12fl.oz) can. Footed pilsner glass. Pale straw, cloudy appearance. White in color, close & lasting crown. Floral, perfumed, spicy & fruity aromas. Gentle pale malt & bready flavors are overwhelmed fruity bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Spicy palate. Long floral bitter finish. Dried sensation & ripe fruit hues on the aftertaste. Nice surprise rediscovering the flavorful Pilsner style. An style frequently beaten by Industrial brewers.

rangerred (866) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2014
12oz can into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a one finger thick white head. Really good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and hay along with some wet grass. A bit of biscuit underneath. Quite nice. Taste is even better with some floral notes to go along with the grassy hay. Moderate to high bitterness that kind of surprised me but I like it. The mouthfeel is a little silky and not super crisp which is a bit of a letdown but it is ok. Overall, a good pilsner but not super awesome. It is a very nice summer beer, though, and I would pick it up again.

355ml Dose. Trübes goldgelbes Bier mit einer sehr schönen stabilen Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, fruchtig. Geschmack angenehm herbmalzig, fruchtig-hopfig. Trocken im Abgang. Wow ein klasse Pils!
