2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice beer, but ’way out there’ on the aroma hopping!
Pours a nice golden color, with about 1 finger of foam that held up well.
Smell, clean heavy aroma of noble hops over take. Nice hoppy smell but over whelming for the style.
Taste, traditional pilsner taste, clean and crisp maybe a little sweeter than I might have expected. The aroma hops take over very quickly, and over power the beer.
Mouthfeel and drinkability are good. Well made beer, and easy drinking.

A very traditional German style pilsner, tasting and feeling exactly like you would expect. Nicely bitter, with a nice medium body to it.

Draught @ Albion. Clear bright yellow with small off-white foamy head, malt aroma, high carbonation, crisp malt taste, abrupt finish. Very nice specimen of the Pilsner category.

This is one of the best Pilseners in America and holds its own against the best European Piseners. In my opinion this beer is based on the Stoudts Golden Lager but with more hops.

Keg @ Monks. Brilliant gold pour with a creamy white head. Nose of lightcut grass. Peppered straw. A bit of biscuit malty sweetness. Pleasant, easy going flavor. Lemon zest accents. Light bready malts. A touch of slightly peppery noble hops. Dry finish. Pillowy carbonation. Good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Starkes Hopfenaroma. Für ein Pils viel zu fruchtig. Geschmack ebenfalls eher wie ein Pale Ale. Etwas muffig.

Hell, klar. Geruch leicht malzig mit leichter Hopfennote. Bitter zum Ende. Leider ein bisschen nachhängend, aber sonst gut getroffen!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I think I had this long, long before, in a pre-Ratebeer life. On tap at Philly airport. Poured a clear light gold, nice head. Aroma was lightly of Pils malts, spicy and grassy hops. Flavor matched, good balancing bitterness. Wish the hop flavors had been a bit more pronounced, but a solidly made brew. Very clean.

This is a very smooth crisp beer. One of the best pils that I’ve had, that wasn’t an imperial pilsner. There are still many that I haven’t tried, especially from Europe, but as far as American microbrews are concerned this is spot on. Has a pale yellow color, clear light texture. Tastes of wheat, barley,, very light hops. Highly recommended if looking for something on the lighter side.
