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.

Bottled. Golden colour. Soapy hop aroma. Dry with rounded mouthfeel.An unfortunate hint of green apples distracts. Short salty finish. A fair attempt on brewing a pilsener, but not entirely succesful. Real good pilseners are very hard to come by.

Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2005
Golden-straw colour; rather hazy; long-lasting head; slow, small bubbles. Fresh aroma of herbaceous hops, doughy yeast and fresh bready malts. Cheers for not using the cliched noble varieties - as good as they can be it gets dull after a few hundred pilsners. A little bit of marshmallowy maltiness underpins a moderately (~32 IBUs) bitter palate. Finish is a little quick. There is an unplesant mineral note but generally a pretty good pils, one of the better ones in the US.

JoeMcPhee (8210) - 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.
