Hazy golden coloured body with an orange glow and a non-existant white head. Aroma of pale malt, hay, grass, herbs, metal and a hint of deep earth - interesting and strong. Light-bodied; Sharp grassy and herbal flavours dominate with a lot of hay and a touch of lemons with a hint of earth - fairly nice with dry and airy elements throughout. Aftertaste is well-rounded with some of the earthy malt, a hint of the lemons and a lot of dry, herbal, grassy characteristics that you’d expect from the style. Overall, a nice pils with more of a grassy and herbal note than most, but a good flavour profile while remaining very light-bodied - perfect for the heat of late summer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 13-July-2013 for US$2.25 sampled at home in Washington on 26-August-2013.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Sweet doughy aroma with a hint of floral hops. Light yellow color. Seems a touch more bitter than 15 IBU listed...that’s Coors range. Also sweet candied malt, especially on finish. Crisp starting and soft ending. Interesting, though only if consumed as first beer of the night.

wxman (1387) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is grain and floral hop earthiness. Refreshing pilsner taste of sweet pale malt, toasted bread and mild hop bitterness. Simple, and simply delicious!

Bottle courtesy of the Cheeseman. Pours a dark hazy gold with a decent head. Aroma of sharp hop and corn. Flavorful, with a good bit of bitterness, wonderfully drinkable.

Bottle to pint. Looks good for the style; a slightly hays gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dough with a bit of pilsner bitterness. Tastes like it smells, with a nice pilsner snap. A decent example of the style.
