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.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Draught sample at Squatter’s Pub & Brewery, SLC. Mild fruity beany aroma, light graininess, with a bit of grassy character. Clear golden body with thin white lacing head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts with mild carbonic acidity, some grainy beany character, and a mild bitterness. Good acidic hoppy finish, though a more subtle fruity character. Hop bitterness in the after. Not quite crisp, but a decent pils.

Pours a clear gold in color with some fairly heavy and consistent carbonation. Thin foamy head resting on top. Nose is simple: Biscuity malts. Flavor is typical pilsner with some slight sourness to it. Biscuit and breadiness with some slight hop bitterness. Mouthfeel leaves me just slightly wanting. Not as crisp and "clean" as I tend to liek this style. Nice and easily drinkable beer for the style. None of the flavors our out of "whack."

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2007
From a 12 oz. twist-off bottle, no freshness date, nice looking label, a short blurb along the left of label, sampled at a cellar temperature in a pilsener glass. Poured a clear, bright yellowish golden with a nice sized foamy white head, settled into a thin, slighty creamy, sudsy lacing. A faint nose, sweet malts and little grainy, a subtle fruitiness and a light scent of herbs. Good steady carbonation and a crisp, dry, firm, smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of dry, lightly grainy, biscuity malts, a subtle honey lemony fruitiness, a mellow herbal bitterness from the hops, and a dry salty, grainy finish with a softly lingering spiciness in the palate. Nicely smooth drinking pilsener, not available in my area, if it was, I would be a steady buyer of this.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2007
Very pale golden colour, thin white head. Very light aroma, pale malt with faint noble hops. Light bodied as well. Crisp finish and fairly refreshing, but not a whole lot of character either.

Tejas (851) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Draught > SLC, UT airport. Little dry. Not to spicy. Easy drinker but it should be at 4%. Not bad.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2007
Pours a brilliant yellow golden color w/ a full spritzy froth. Great head retention w/ sticky residual lacing. Aroma has a nice biscuit profile amidst mild hopsy flowering. Light nectar w/ ample yet soft residual effers. Great balance right off the bat. A defined hop presence upfront countered by brisk malts. A nice citrus asprin essence sets in and lingers through to the finish. Theres a slight biscuiting component that is enjoyable. The finish is wet, clean, and refreshing w/ perfect bittering. No off flavors or aromas to speak of. A good brew indeed.
