On tap. Light yellow color with a slick of white foam. Aroma is light toasted malt with biscuit and some background herbal hops. Taste is clean with biscuit, toasted malt, minimal sweetness, and light bitter hops. Clean mouthfeel. NIce beer.

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Kennon ][ Gift ][ Stemless White Wine Glass ][ 9.23.14 ]
>> Chill haze straw pour with large white foam and good webby lacing. Nose is fresh apple and pear, white bread, Taste is watery and metallic, decent grassy bite. Dry, not sugary. As it warms, it gains a bit of butterscotch and yellow cake. Not bad at all, but unsure of why you would buy this over Prima Pils or Pivo Pils.

emacgee (4030) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Pours a soft and pale straw blonde with two fingers of white frothy head that is quick to dissipate to a tight ring around the edge of the glass. Nose is grassy with notes of wet bread and sweet malt. Lightly metallic. Grassy and lightly bitter with bready notes and such. Very light bodied and crisp.

Transfer from BA review on 7-7-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a straw color with a two finger white head. The head fades rather fast to give a good amount of lacing. Smell – The smell is mainly of malt with a hop base largely of citrus lemon and a light grapefruit. Mixed with this is some light aroma as pine as well. Taste – The flavor starts out on the bready side. It is soon meet with a lighter citrus hop flavor. These hop flavors mix with a light earthy hop flavor which seems to mix with the citrus and leave a lightly bitter-crisper flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – Very average in terms of carbonation (medium level) with a very average level of carbonation. Good for the style. Overall - Easy drinking with a good crisp flavor and a nice clean taste.

Dacrza (519) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: July 6, 2014... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: 4th of July yardwork and party unwinding... APPEARANCE: pale, tawny, watered-down yellow body; white head sits with an appropriate pillowy arc, then settles out as a reasonable, albeit soapy ring; sporadic, tentacle lacing... AROMA: spritzy, light pale malts suggest pilsner; some bubblegum as well, but not much more in complexity... PALATE: medium-bodied,, yet light in carbonation; a pleasant, lingering aftertaste; a good partner for post-mowing deck relaxation...in essence, a slightly uncomfortable mouthfeel... TASTE: a predictably clean, taut malt assertion; biscuity at the finish; hops are clean and balancing... OVERALLL: little distinguishes this beer from the myriads of pilsners within the genre, but that is a positive in some respects; as a fourth of a sampler, hopefully not the one to be rushed towards, but that will depend on the rest of the mix...for now, serviceable and palate-cleansing...

Hangover (1059) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Hazy golden puor with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly straw with light lemon. Nice cereal maltiness, bread, some faint citrus. Nice, crisp finish. Pretty good pilsner, nice body and refreshing.

60minuteman (769) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Aroma of malt, hops, water, metallic, light citrus. Flavor is the same. Very solid lager. Good malt presence. Love that stickiness. Clear yellow with white lacing that sticks around.

kramer (5005) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head. The nose is pretty nice, bready pale malt with a light noble hop aroma. Smells pretty clean and to style. The flavor is a little less clean than the aroma, there’s a little bit of a sweet, almost grape juice like note that’s a bit off. The hops are a little too subdued as well, not quite as fresh and clean as I would like. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and some lingering bready malt. Not as clean and crisp as I like for a Pilsener.

jrodooo5 (1026) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pale yellow pour w/ a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is nearly sour & heavy on the malt. The taste is thin & metallicy. Not much flavor whatsoever. About as borderline micro as they come! Not recommended!
