Draft: most micro / craft brewers struggle with the style of beer, no room for error. Food Pairing: Cheese quesadillas.

Can at home. Pours clear and sparkling gold with a large, frothy and rocky white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is moderate grassy and spicy hops, medium grainy Pils malt and light fruity esters. Flavor is medium, crisp grainy Pils malt, medium floral and spicy hops and bitterness, faint fruity esters and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

GABF 2015. A little sweet for a pilsner, malt, but it is hard to get away from the sweet flavor I am picking up and it is far too much for a pils. It is drinkable enough.

slowrunner77 (10112) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Gold medal pils - not a standout or anything, but surprised at the low scores. Crisp and clean and pleasant throughout if nothing special. Mostly bready malt, with a touch of hop bite.

Draught at the Hop Nuts Brewing, Las Vegas, NV. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Malt and mild sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is malt, mild bitterness and earthy notes. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery - light clear yellow, small head, sweet aroma with an eggshell taste. Light body and kind of a sour finish. There are better beers at TC.

50belair (3379) - 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.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Appearance was clear yellowish gold with diminishing creamy bubbly white 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are soft pils malt, sweet corn, lite spicy hops. Taste are spicy earthy hops with smooth soft pils malt with slight corn and soft water profile. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with light body, then short balanced smooth finish. A good example of an American pils.

Not a bad beer. Not great either though. Crisp and clean. Would be good on a hot day. Nothing special.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Sampled on draft this beer poured a yellow-gold color with a medium sized foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tart perfume with vague fruity hops and a bit of chalk. The flavor was tart, sour and a bit off with notes of fruity hops and egg white. Medium length finish. Light body. Not good.
