peteinSD (1281) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
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.

kramer (4687) - 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, thereís a little bit of a sweet, almost grape juice like note thatís 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 (804) - 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!

trapped (603) - TURKEY - JAN 26, 2014
Drought at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Rich yellow with white foamy head, honey aroma, sweetish taste with a bitter end, not a remarkable product.

DandyWolfFloyd (617) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Aroma - smells very unpleasant almost like soap. Appearance - is clean golden yellow, with a big head that crashes hard and ends. Nice lacing. Taste - taste is bitter and kind of off, sort of ... like clay. Feel - is abrupt, and what you do taste is unpleasant. Grassy and assy. Nothing else worth mentioning. --- JPS

Darwenus (486) - Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2014
It wasnít awful. It was bright yellow with little head. There was a slight bananas and grain character to the aroma, like a hefeweizen might have. A little malt in the flavor, slight bitter twist in the finish of the sip. A bit medicinal, though. It wasnít awful, but I didnít really enjoy it.

Remarkably clear. Thin bubbly head. Crisp mouth feel. German malts and hops are evident. Good representation of the style.
