COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the Bavarian tradition, this Pilsner is golden-hued and highly hopped. It is brewed with German variety Magnum hops, then lagered for drinkability.

Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Salt Lake City, Utah. Clear, medium yellow pour with a bubbly white head, clean, slightly tart with some grape and a bit of citrusy hops, not bad and very sessionable.

12oz bottle (4% ABV) with a pleasing image on the label pours up clear gold with bright white head. The aroma is grainy maltiness to some cereal and a bit of noble hops in the background. The taste has neutral sweetness and hop tartness hitting up front. By midway the grainy and malty and faintly cereal maltiness grows to balance out the hop bitterness. It dries out into the finish and thins out too. I get lingering bitterness and graininess into the finish.

Thanks Sonnie, bottle: Pour is pale golden with a very thin dissipating white head. Aroma is light honey, grains, a bit grassy. Flavor is very crisp, lightly hopped, grassy, and even a tad salty. It was OK.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2008
A honeyed lager that did not quite have the hop character I had hoped for. This was a little too malt driven for a pilsner, but not a bad quaff.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light gold with white head and zero lacing. Nose is sweet corn and grass. Palate is sweet malts, honey and a light hop dry finish. Light mouth feel. Not horrible.

I drank this out of a 12oz undated bottle and was not impressed at all. very weak taste but goes down very easily

EithCubes (4622) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 Bottle thanks to douglass88. Sweet floral aroma with slight lemon grass, citrus, and a sharp tangy zing, slight funk and must (just a little stale tire air). Pale yellow pour with a staunch white head. Citric taste is very bready, and therefore rather chewy despite the lightish body. Dash of mineral water that’s fine in the drink but lingers somewhat off-puttingly. Very light bitterness, little malt and virtually no sweetness; quenching and very drinkable. Absolutely no alcohol evident. A spritzy, fun pils.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2010 12 oz. undated bottle, from January trade with Douglas88. And poured into a Sam Adams glass. I’m celebrating the 75th anniversary of the return of 3.2% beer with a 3.2 beer (by weight, the way Utah still regulates it). Despite the brown bottle, a slight bit of oxidation. But pours nice, with a slight gold pils color and a thin stream of bubbles supporting a thin lager head. Taste suggests it’s mostly-, maybe all-, grain, with slightly toasty Pils malts. Don’t know what they consider "highly hopped," but this ain’t quite it. But there is a nice peppery note of Bavarian hops, even a touch of Brit. A nice example of a style that needs little alteration to stay suited for a 3.2 state. And let’s appreciate their tip o’the bowler to the 3 Stooges with the pictures of panthers on either side of the word "Pilsner" on the label.

It is nice to have a pilsner not served in a green bottle to avoid the skunky flavor, sadly this beer, at least out of the bottle, does leave quite a bit to be desired. It’s not a bad beer, it’s just extremely usual. It’s pretty pale in color, not a lot of hoppy aroma, very light body, no after taste. It goes down very easily.

Fantomasus (200) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Pours a yellow gold wit a big white head of tightly packed bubbles that quickly dissipate. Little if any aroma but nothing bad. Tastes of a quirky malt hops balance. Refreshing and unassuming. Good for pounding down on a hot summer day. Buy this instead of commercial Amercan brews.
