Bottle. Moderate grain and hay for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of pepper and cardboard. Head is average size, fizzy/frothy, white with fair lacing and is fully lasting. Color is hazy, yet sparkling pale yellow. Flavor is moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate light, watery, with a fizzy carbonation. Pilseners are supposed to be light but the flavor is a little bland and the palate is weak in this one.

6 pack for 2 bucks. I’m not a huge pilsner fan, but Smuttynose makes great beers, so what the hell? Pours a hazy yellow color with a huge white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smells and tastes more like your standard summer beer; grassy, wheat, slightly hoppy, very crisp. Body, carbonation are both average. Texture is slightly slick. Overall this is a decent pilsner. Not amazing but very easily drinkable and crisp. My bottle says 5.2% ABV.

tom10101 (2919) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle (12 oz). Hazy yellow with a medium diminishing white head and some lacing. Aroma of grains, herbal notes, light pepper and light lemony presence. Taste is mild with cereals, lemon, light pepper notes, herbal and floral presence. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Maybe a tad watery. Clean. Extremely high drinkability and also very refreshing because of the light body and lemony notes. Really good.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 5, 2013
NIce but quite hoppy and not graspy for being a Pislner. The name is nice and the features smooth.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy, straw yellow color with a rich foamy white head. Big lemony, pear aroma, with crackers and yeast. The flavor is very smooth with lemony, yeasty flavor and a light sweet malt aftertaste. Medium body, smooth, moderate carbonation.

Bottle: pours a hazy yellowish amber with a thin foamy white head, light citrus aroma, taste is grainy with a very mild bitter finish

TheHopster (814) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2013
(bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow with thick white head. Persistent carbonation. Aroma is sadly reminiscent of Budweiser. The flavor is biting. Hops are somewhat bitter without the malt balance for this style. I am normally a big fan of this brewer but this one falls far short. An excessive price point is unjustified for misused hops.

Cloudy hay qith white head. Pilsener aroma. Bready flavor with hints of honey. Slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

coldbrewky (1428) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle via Grand Cru beer and Cheese. Pours a hazy yellow with thin psychedelic bubble of foam on a mere mil of a head. Nose is grassy basement. My senses tingle. Body is pleasantly light and tinged with light hops with ....grassy meh. finish is non existent. Drooppy sparse lacing. Crickets, not oompah bands.
