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.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with hellbilly (thanks!). Poured a lighter and hazy yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of grains, grass, and corn. Tastes of grass, grain, and lightly spicey. Thinner body.

IrishBoy (3805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Draft at the Brewpub, 10/5/07; Nose of grain and caramel; Translucent gold with a small, glass-lacing white head; It is grainy with a slibht hop bitterness, as well as a tart note. Does not taste as hoppy as the description says.

BelgianBeerGal (3103) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottled. Sub-standard pilsner. Light straw color with massive carbonation driving a white head...lasted quite while. Watery taste and no strong flavors.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 16, 2007
Tasted 14/09/2007. 12oz bottle leftover from BrewNZ. Shared with bozoNZ and backenzie. Pale gold, brilliantly clear, with a herbal hoppy nose and flavour, a medium sweetness and a firm bitterness. Good, without being great.

starflyer58 (26) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 9, 2007
golden color, malt-sweet/slight hopped aroma, very light bodied... not one of my favorites... but refreshing... came in a Squatters/Wasatch mixed pack from Vegas.

fordest (1964) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2007
12 oz bottle thanks to padrefan98. Golden yellow with a decent white head. Aromas were weak and a bit boring. Flavors were better. Saaz hops like flavors and some decent finish. Not Horrible.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 30, 2007
Bottled sample via presario. Light gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas of cookie malts, lemon peel, and a bit of spicy hops. Slightly sweet in the mouth with mild black pepper-like hops, and moderately sweet malts. More flavorful than a macro pils, but not by a whole lot. It’s still a bit underhopped and not quite bitter enough. It’s half way there.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - AUG 30, 2007
Poured a golden yellow color with a finger of head that dissapated quickly. The nose had a honey sweetness to it, and a slight grassy hoppiness. The flavor is malty sweet, almost honey-esque, followed by dry malts and a nice crisp flowery hop finish. The feel is thin to moderate but the drinkabilty is high. Overall, I was fairly impressed with this pils.
