Bottle from Pinnochio’s in Media. Hazy yellow color with a nice white head. Aroma is yeasty, taste is pilsener-esque - nicely hopped, citrusy, and refreshing. This beer reminds me a bit of Sierra Nevada Summer. Great brew overall - glad I found this one!

Fair pilsner, with a nice stinky saaz like aroma and flavor, a little musky, grassy and piney. Light palate, not as crisp as I’d like, and fairly clean, not revealing any yeasty character like I’d hoped. Hazy yellow, modest head.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow, not much head. Definite Pilsener aroma. Taste is crisp, but with a pleasant, hoppy bitterness at the beginning of the finish. A good, very drinkable beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Waterfront Ale House Manhattan: Pours a nice hazy light golden with a dense and well retained white head. Extremely clean dry aroma with crackery pils notes and a touch of noble hop vegetal notes. Lively yet creamy feel on the palate. Clean flavor throughout. Very very dry, with a firm crackery pils malt body, and a long peppery mild vegetal fresh noble hop bitterness. A fantastic pils that I can session all day.

I dont know if its because southampton is such a hoity-toity place that i automatically have a stigma against the brewery, but slowly but surely i am coming around after this and their double white. This was a snap decision buy before going to a party on july 4th, and it was such a hit that we had to go out and get another 3 six packs. Great flavor and color thats very refreshing on a hot day. this will probably get me into more of the southampton beers.

Fairly middle of the road. Tried it because they started brewing it at the old Rock brewery in Latrobe! Because they use different hops every year, this is one I will continue to try. This years batch had too much of a floral hop finish for me, but if you like that...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, purchased in PA. Pours a bright, effervescent, straw-golden color with just the slightest haze (surprised this isn’t hazier); creamy, mixed-bubbled white head with excellent retention and lacing; solid-looking pour. Slightest amount of skunk at first, but this quickly dissipates; solid mineral and citrus bitterness in the aroma; very soft pils malt at the core, and generally clean; nicely hop-forward and quite crisp. Medium-light body; lively carbonation; lightly creamy presence in the mouth; the mineral and citrus bitterness is quite zesty; medium levels of hop bitterness and flavor; solid stuff; light Pils maltiness, showing hints of honey and a light graininess; pretty dry, nicely bitter and zesty, and (aside from the touch of skunk) quite clean and well-done. Tasty, modestly hoppy Pils; I’d like to try this again, fresher. Medium finish: mineral bitterness, toastiness, nicely dry.

Had this one while I was camping. Really dry and refreshing. Lots of great hoppy goodness. Fairly dry. I’d love to have this around all of the time.

From a bottle poured a golden color with a fair amount of head. Nice bitter malty flavor with a lingering finish.

Finally an American brewed pils that I can really sink my teeth into. It’s crisp grassy hops and clean finish bring you back again and again. So very refreshing which is my #1 criteria when downing a pils on a 95 degree evening. Think I’ll stick with it all night.
