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.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a medium to large white head. Crisp sweet grain on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet and grainy, light hop profile, dusty and noble. Finishes with a long grainy bitterness. Easy drinking, but nothing mind blowing. Rather have a Prima Pils I think. Nice to see craft brewers at least trying to make these things, even if it may just be a gimmick.

dmac (4080) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2012
12 oz bottle from Cranbury BuyRite. Poured a clear golden straw body with a an average sized foamy white head. Aroma starts off mostly grains with a touch of honey topped bread but with some warming corn and leafy greens. Fuller bodied with stingy carbonation and a very dry finish. Flavor is dry grains and saw dust. Blah.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 9, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Julio’s Liquors for $2.10. I absolutely love the name of this brew! Classic. D.O.B on bottle is 12/19/11, so still fresh. Transparent piss yellow color. Small head nearly no lace. Cooked vegetables in the nose. Light German hop in the finish with a touch of malt. I can pick-up more Vegetable in the flavor, light grain. Ok for what it is.

kbutler1 (1352) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear light golden yellow color with a slight white head. Clean aroma of a slightly floral hop with some notes of wheaty bread. Light/medium mouthfeel. Slightly weet start with a floral hop that adds some nice bitterness components. Drinkable.

2011 Brewfest Roch. Clear golden body with thin head. Light and crisp body with hints of malts, barley and corn. Subtle yeast flavor. A decent pils, but not up to par with many of the other beers of the night.

shadey (1904) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2011
From Growler. Pours a bright, clear, gold with a thin head of tight white bubbles that quickly fades to lace. Aroma is lightly lemony and herbal, like an herbal tea. The flavor is more toasty. I taste fresh hay and just a little tart lemon. The body is light and clean, not sticky or sweet. Very refreshing and easy to drink. I think this hits the nail on the head for a European-style pilsener and it’s quite welcome from an American brewer.

Many thanks for my lovely wife to noticing ’Total Tap Takeover’ at Tap and Mallet tonight. Man there were some good looking beers present. This one was served in a tall glass, not up to the standards of the finer euro-pilz. Gold colored, small German hop taste, bland.

Beerman6686 (4423) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2011
This poured a bright clear yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of sweeter malt,, light corn and very light dusty stale hops, Flavor was a bit cloying for a pils, and too weet, some astringency too barely balanced with light salty hops.
