Golden lager, perfectly balanced malt and hop characteristics. Won the gold medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival for "European-Style Pilsner."

Suprised to see that this won a gold medal. Pale yellow-watery appearance. Mostly there is just something really odd about this beer. Dry hop finish, but also lumpy. Not great for sure.

Leafy, green, vegetal hop nose. Hazy yellow golden coloured body with a low white head that recedes to ring. Grainy sweet malt flavour with some herbal hops and light bitterness. Light body with crisp, sharp, overly strong carbonation and somewhat watery texture. Sampled at GABF 2005.

On tap at The Pub in the Monte Carlo, Las Vegas. Comes clear pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grain and hops. Taste is grain, malt, citrus and some hops. Mild bitterness. Pleasant.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Light golden and clear with a thin head. Light and lively carbonation; light body. Fairly sweet base (cereal, grains). Hops were grassy and flowery. Mild bitterness. Really missed a saaz kick.

Draught at the brewery. Looks like their pils differs greatly between batches. Luckily mine was pretty nice. Slightly above average pils that had a little more hop than typical. Crisp, easy drinking style that finished with some cereal notes.

Draft at GABF. Pours a mostly clear gold with a nice white head. Nose is grainy, lots of pils malt notes. Crisp and clean with some light herbal hopping. On taste, it’s clean and simple. Easy drinking, balanced. Nothing really shines, but not a bad beer at all.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2009
clear pale straw yellow color with a thin white head and some spotty lacing. solvent-y alcohol aroma...ick, followed by grainy sweetness and fruit. the palate is WAY too sweet... flavors of strawberries, lemon and spicy grain. medium bodied leaning on syrupy which keeps it from being refreshing or enjoyable. 3/3/4/2/8/2.0

50belair (3023) - Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Light malty aromas. Really good body. Pleasant malty notes. Very good balance. I am not a fan of Pilsners, but this is an exception. It truly is, the very best beer of that style I have ever had.

OldGrowth (2982) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Sample at brewpub. Ok nose, litely lemon and sourdough. Clean pale yellow color. Sweet and bitter. Citrus, lemon lime, toasted malts, hint of a clove or corriander. Lite body, kinda creamy, little bite on finish. Tasty enough, very drinkable. Though it was my first brew of the day and I had been hiking for a few hours so almost anything would of been good.

Gription79 (2682) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 5, 2012
On draft at the brewery. Looks like a great pilsner. Aromas of corn, sulfur, and some graininess. The flavor is some graininess, but mostly an over powering bitterness. This easy drinking pilsner would be great in the Las Vegas great.
