Disappointing 4-pack. No, itís not that I donít like pilseners, but this doesnít seem to offer a whole lot. Pale yellow with good lacing, but I donít get a lot of malt backbone (the brewer promises bread and biscuits) or hop bite. Only 15 IBU, fair enough, but more late hop flavor needed for me. Whatís there is grassy.

Hazy yellow. No lasting head. Aroma of grass. Flavor is grassy with some nuttiness. Goid pils. Good bitterness

degbert (1115) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a light straw yellow with a high large-grained lacy white head. Nose is yeast, biscuit, apple, and a touch of dust. Crisp, but a little hollow on the mid-palate; I just want the brightness turned up a little. Hops come through on the finish. Decent.

jcnielsen (2099) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Bready, grainy, slight grassy, floral aromas. Refreshing, bread, malty, slight noble hop flavors. Pretty nice pilsener.

Pleasant surprise here. Didn't know what I was gunna get but I like it. Aroma has a faint Oktoberfest German smell and it is incredibly smooth. Nice pilsner taste on the backend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a decent Pilsner. It has a bit of spice notes, pale golden color, classic flavors. Itís pretty good. Pretaaay, pretaaay, pretay good.

keanex (1452) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Mildly hazy straw colored body with a creamy white head.
Aroma: Mild with a touch of noble hops and mild malts. Slight perfume aromas.
Taste: Crisp with a mild bitterness, clean body and a short finish.
Palate: Crisp and light leaning.
Overall: This isnít a bad pils, but itís middle of the road. If someone handed this to me Iíd be okay with it, but I would be disappointed if I bought it.

Tap. Pale golden with small head. Light bodied pils. A bit of sweetness with a little hoppy bite.

LinusStick (2854) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2014
A delicious pilsener. Aroma was nice. Sweet grain, pilsner malt and hints of fresh cut grass. Pour was a nice clear light gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was good. A little subdued but good. The grains and pilsener malt are nice. Just a light hoppiness. Less than I would like for a pils, but not bad. Less carbonation than I like for the style, but a good beer nonetheles

BLADT (625) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Tap pour. Clean straw color with white grad. Great lacing all the way down. Lemon, dough and grassy hops on nose. Some mild skunk. Fun interplay between a heathy amount of pale malts and the bitter effect of the dry hopping. Good, ready drinking.
