blipp (6329) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Can. Pours clear gold with a fluffy white head. Lemony and mild spicy hops, grainy malty base, and a clean finish with some lingering rustic straw-like notes. Good stuff.

obguthr (4074) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Pounder, with hops listed on label identical to separate entry named "Vitamin P", placing here because the ABV is the same and the hops specified in the description are generic enough to include the ones listed on the can: Hay, lemon, cane sugar nose, shitty. Relatively clear, very pale yellow, thin head. Grass and hay on the front, minty grass noble hops on the back. Some maltiness at midpalate. Overriding sweetness that gives the beer a refreshing quality without being cloying. Light body, moderate carbonation. Nicely hopped with good transitions.

SardiniaMan (42) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Probably one of the best pilsners I’ve ever had. Its an easy drinking and refreshing Czech Pilsner.

Strangebrewer (901) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
bottle. Poured pale yellow with a bleach white head. Faint citrus aroma. Light body, prickly dry mouthfeel. Pale malt, grainy with some citrus and a peppery hop finish.

vadie (800) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Jaune très pale avec un petit tête blanc. L’arôme du malt pilsner avec un peu d’houblon floral. C’est très fraîche avec du malt léger, assez du corps, et une finition d’amertume moyenne (pour le style). Une bonne surprise.

pictoman (608) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Poured from the tap. Clear, pale yellow with white head. Corn malt with a good shot of grassiness. Came as a bit of a surprise, but pleasant.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Cloudy pale yellow with a thin, white lasting oily head. Slight smell of yeast, cloves, sulphur. Tastes of yeast with pale malt and a grape quality. The aftertaste is a bit sour and bitter. Not the best pils I’ve had,

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
A nice refreshing example of Sner with taste. Pours a clear light straw with small head. Aroma is of corn, bread, honey, and herbs. Tastes of corn, honey, herbs, and light lemon. Has a light body with medium carbonation and a little hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Would gladly drink this on a patio over and over again.

BrewGoblin (462) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - SEP 18, 2014
A pretty darn tootin’ tasty ’Sner, a style I am not typically a lover of. Pale yellow straw that leaves nice lacing with its thin head. Cereal, light hay, honey and some mellow spicy hops kiss the nose. Taste is a dry bittersweet with light malt and mellow hopping dominating. Nice lively mouthfeel, a pleasure to drink this simple but solid brew.

Can from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours light gold with a white head. Aroma of pale malt and inappropriate hop. Seems more floral than grassy. Med body or so. Flavor is pale malt and something fruity/spicy. There is a bread and bitter aspect in the finish, but it just doesn’t seem pils to me.
