Growler thanks to EricE at Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a crystal clear, bright yellow with a small, bubbly, white head. Nose is massive black peppercorn. Taste is quenching with black peppercorn explosion. Clean palate. No soap, no diacetyl. Finish is mildly lactic and fatty sourdough. Refreshing.

radagast83 (5071) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Merrifield location. Cloudy golden/yellow color. Aroma is sweet with a bit of grass. Frankly this is one of the better pilsners I’ve had in a long time (I’m not a huge fan and they usually leave a dry, unpleasant grass taste in my mouth). Perhaps it’s because it might not have been a "true to the bone" pilsner. I liked it.

A crisp pils with a fair amount of grapefruit, lemon and herbal hops. Full nose, light palate. Even provides some lacing in the glass. The key to keeping it quaffable is balance, and there is sufficient dry malt here to give the beer some heft.

MadRobin (2070) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 4, 2013
On tap 6 oz. sampler at Sweetwater Tavern in Centreville, VA. Clear, pale golden-yellow with an off-white head and sparse lacing. I suspect that nearly all the head was removed before serving. Aroma of pilsener malt, sugar, light floral hops and sweet citrus. Taste of white pepper, pilsener malt, citrus, floral hops and bread. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

argo0 (11653) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Crystal clear straw body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grassy, some lemon, bread. Taste is medium sweet, grassy, some lemon, light bread. Medium bitterness that leaves a nice hoppy aftertaste. Clean light body with some crispness that is quite easy drinking. Paired well with the BBQ Pork sandwich.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Golden pour with a small off-white head. Light aroma, hints of citrus, lemon, bready pils malts, and a light pepper bite. Malty flavor, doughy, pils malts, a bit of citrus and spice. Not bad.
