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.

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.

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
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.

Braudog (5833) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2014
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.

fiveacestx (605) - Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Can to pils glass - Cloudy light yellow color with a small head. I didn’t like it on first sip because it seemed to have a metal taste to it but that went away. Seems fairly hoppy for a pils and yes, it’s dry on the finish.

Fritz123 (1033) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Can from trade with Brian. Snifter at home. Pours a clear gold with a one finger white head. Some lacing. Aroma is bread, cereal, whole grains, hay. The taste is solid grains, bread, cheerios, grass and alfalfa. Light body and moderate carb. Slight bitter ending. Very nice pils.

oliodnb (336) - ITALY - JUL 22, 2014
Clear pale yellow, thick white head. Aroma is malts and noble hops, typical pils. Light refreshing malty taste with a nice hoppy bitterness. Light lemon and grassy touch. Only bad thing is a faint soapy aftertaste. Interesting beer.
