Clear sun bleached straw yellow. The hop is so light the malt sticks out, it mellows but the flavor lasts. It has a slight bitter.

Pours light clear yellow with smaller white head. The aroma has pale pils malt, spicy hops, light herbs and touch of dough. It has a light crisp body with fairly sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with cry malt, bright minty hops, grass, minerals and crackery malt. The finish is fairly astringent. Pretty good.

Pours a bright yellow in the pils glass. Aroma is muted but this is a nice crisp pilsner. Grain taste lingers in the back. Super easy to drink. A good take on a hard style to get right.

Pours golden with only very gentle bubbles and a nice fluffy head. The nose is quite shandy-ish with notes of sweet malt and lemon. The taste has sweet pale malt and lemon again. The palate is medium bodied with a nice tangy texture and a fresh finish. Overall, not a typical German Pilsen in my opinion but well made.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 9/13/11
Aroma: The nose is german malts, grass, cereal, and a little floral hops
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a fizzy white head and streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is balanced betweem the crisp, cereal malts and floral hops
Palate: The body is light and crisp with a fairly clean mouthfeel and lively carbonation
Honestly, I didn’t think this was a bad pilsner at all. It had a pretty decent flavor, it was on style, and it had a crisp and clean mouthfeel. It’s fairly simple, and not particularly interesting, but it works for what it is trying to be, so I’d drink this one again.

Bottle at the Yolo Beer Fest. Pours pale gold with a white head. Iight citrusy aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is bready with light noble hop. Finishes decently bitter.
Earlier Rating: 5/20/2007 Total Score: 2.8
Very light aroma. Seems a bit fishy, but that makes no sense. LIght brassy color with a white head that tries to lace. Medium bodied, the carbonation renders it a bit chewy, and the hop is appropriate for a pilsener. The finish is lightly bitter, and not so dry as might be desireable. Pilsener it is, but Pilsener Urquell it is not. Decent brew.

12oz bottle via secret Santa pours a clear golden/yellow with a medium white head. Subdued aroma of malt and grain, with grassy hops. Taste is clean, but like the aroma nothing really pops here. It’s well balanced and very drinkable, a very decent Pilsner, however lacks brightness and crispness
