COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

Meh...a pretty average pilsener, not as good as our European counterparts. Aroma was heavy and lager like with hints of straw and must. Pour was a nice light clear gold with a thin white film for a head. Taste was OK. It was nice and light with sweet grains and just a hint of hop bite in the aftertaste. A little sticky on the cheeks and top of the mouth. The big problem with this beer is the lack of good carbonation. Some nice bubbles would bring this beer over the 3.0 mark for me. Decent beer, but that’s it

Poured into a pils glass. 3.0 A: Clear light yellow color. Just one finger of frothy white head that fell quickly and left no lacing. 4.0 S: Biscuity and grainy malts. Super clean. Dank, floral hoppiness with grassiness right behind. Simple, yet seductive. 4.0 T: Grainy first, biscuity second. Soft bitterness, earthy and grassy hop flavor. Pilseners aren’t the height of complexity, but this is a clean, tasty one. 4.0 M: Light body. Crisp and refreshing. My only complaint is that the carbonation is a bit too high. 4.0 D: Super clean and tasty. What more could you want in the style? This would be a good choice for a party.

I had this last weekend. I don’t remember anything too specific about it. It wasn’t that great. It definitely reminded me of a decent American microbrewery trying to do a true Euro pilsner. American breweries can’t do good pilsners-- although Stoudt’s comes close. Too hoppy, and a little thick at the end. Needs to be fluffier, foamier, and light at the finish.

Pours a crisp yellow-gold color with no head. Aroma is light grass, biscuit malts, and light wheat. Taste is smooth, lightly grassy hops, with toasty malts

Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of grain, malt, and slight noble hops. Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Malt, grain, and slight noble hop finish is slightly sweet.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Very light in appearance, golden-ish brown. Aroma is a little bland, slight wheat flavor, same as the taste. Very easy to drink on a hot FL day.

Standard Pilsner like aroma. Golden yellow. Crispy sour flavor with a hint of sweetness towards the finish. Hint of sourness but refreshing in the finish.

Pours standard gold with thin soapy head. Tastes of grain, corn, grass, vanilla, and banana. Thin on palate. Standard pils nothing special

faint hops, typical smell. very little lacing. golden straw with small, quickly gone head. nice to have a euro style pils without the green bottle effect. other than that, its an eh. decent enough, but a shit price point for a pis...

(Bottle from Rising Tide) Pale straw color, clear. Off-white head. Aroma is a bit of bread, a bit of corn?!, a bit metallic. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth but a bit prickly, fairly crisp and dry. Flavor is weakly bready and weak grain, appearing very much at first like a pale lager. Somewhat redeemed by some hoppier presence near the finish, esp. as it warms. Finish also has a touch of licorice. Forgettable.
