Pale yellow color with no head. Light hoppy aroma and some bitterness on the tongue. Very boring.

trapped (1195) - New York City, 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.

Can - from sampler pack. Very light - crystal clear. Mostly clean aroma. A good, hoppy pilsner. Good session beer.

nimbleprop (5561) - 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 (2718) - 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

Can from reggiedunlop. Pours pale gold with a foamy/creamy white head. Aroma is bready and spicy. Near med body. Flavor is bready, saaz spicy, and has a touch of grape flavor. Decent pils.

voyageurmike (132) - 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 (601) - - 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 (137) - 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.

climberbob (248) - Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Can into goblet. Straw yellow w good thick white head. Tastes like a decent pils - some floral hops and malt but nothing overpowering. Notes of citrus and hay. Ok for a hot day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skmikeg (1213) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Pours pale yellow with a thin soapy white head. Aroma is of pils malts, bready malts, spicy hops, grassy hops, and some pine. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice pils that is excellent for the style.
