Clear golden with a good head cover and light bands of lace. Nice looking, along with a good hop-wheat aroma. Taste is traditional, but, none-the-less good - clean wheat and malt are intercepted by solid floral hops that continue to the finish. Its December as I drink this, and it is tasty, but I imagine it is really suited to warm weather afternoons and evenings. Recommended.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light honey, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light honey, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of hop, malt, and yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very good pilsner style. Good balance and robustness of flavor; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Patrickctenchi (3556) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Pours clear gold, with a tall, foamy head. Hoppy, grassy aroma. Taste is evenly bittered hops...grain, grass. Very smooth.

b3shine (5304) - Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with medium foamy white head. Smells and tastes doughy and slightly hoppy with a solid mouthfeel. An easy drinking pils.

nolankowal (926) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Golden yellow with a soft white head. Straw, grass and pale malt is apparent in the aroma with slight hints of apricot and light floral notes. Taste of light cereal, lemon, grass and a bit of corn. Light body... creamy at times but well carbonated, lightly sweet with a dry bitter note that goes through the finish. Not a bad little number as I always enjoy a good pils and this would be a good session on a hot day for certain. However I think the price point may be a touch high for a session lager making offerings like the superior Prima Pils or the equally good Wright Pils a better option.

jmikolich (1446) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2013
12oz bottle, straight from the bottle, so appearance is kind of meh, Judging by the bit i poured out for my homies, this is a surprisingly great local beer, nice and clean slight hint of corny malt effervescent and tasty.. way better option than any 4.5% Macro

Daytonbeer (641) - Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Pours gold in color. Not much head or lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and hay. Taste is surprisingly hoppy for a pils, with lemon, sugar, and bitter hops. I can actually drink this pils and enjoy it.

Beerman6686 (4298) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2013
This one poured a clear bright yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of light citrusy hops, and some grassy and crackers. Flavor was of crisp rice, floral and fruity hops, and a grainy finish. Not too shabby.

Nice surprise from Cheap. I enjoyed this pilsner, definite personality in this brew. A bit more hoppy for a pils (but I liked that taste). Clean, crisp taste. Thanks again to cheap!
