Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet grainy malt, grassy notes. Flavor is sweet malt , straw and grass, some hoppy bitterness. Clean, but middle of the road and overpriced everywhere I have seen it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours light yellow with a finger of fine, white foam and plenty of resonance. Pretty beer. Earthy hops with a slight, but subtle sweetness in the malts. Simply nose, nothing special. Flavor is bitter with a dry, crispy grain flavor. Body is thin, even for the style with reserved carb and a semi dry finish. Overall, this would be an average pilsner IMO, a little too bitter, with a shy grain character and a little hard in the mouthfeel.
Serving type: bottle

Great European style. Donít get caught up on the lack of hops. Blows away Pilsner Urquell........

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 Bottle: fairly clear, straw-yellow color with a soapy white head with good retention, resting as a creamy film. Aroma is slightly leafy, musty hops, Noble-like, though thereís a mild citric, nearly lemon lime-ish note in the back... Subtle, well done. Soft grains. Taste is paved with nice pilsner malt, just lightly sweet. Nice hops, some must, leaves, and a more pronounced citrus, lemon-y and lime-y finish. Only slightly bitter. Light bready finish, clean & crisp yeast aftertaste. Very nice pilsner... Very nice. Drinkable like whoa.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I had this right after the Great Divide Nomad, so here is a comparison of two American made pilseners. This is more golden than the yellow Nomad. The aroma is less fruity, and is instead drier and more grassy. It smells "cheaper," like a cheap European beer. In that sense it is more authentic. The flavor has fewer off-notes than the metallic Nomad, but it is less innately attractive. Still, it is more drinkable, after a worse aroma. Very mediocre mouthfeel--like a run of the mill American lager, fizzy. Bottle.
