ben4321 (3918) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 10/5/12, 5.2% ABV

Aroma: This beer has a light nose with grainy notes and some light grass
Appearance: It pours a clear gold color with a white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is mostly bread and grass, it is light sweet, and light-medium bitter
Palate: The body is pretty light, it feels crisp and clean, and has a smooth carbonation
Overall Impression: Overall, I thought that this was a solid Pils with a decent feel and good components. It wasn’t an absolute standout, but it was a solid example of the style, and a more then drinkable offering.

RGDave (113) - Lebanon, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, Berkeley Heights, NJ. Clean lines. Beer pours golden and clear, with a medium-to-poor head retention. Aroma has only limited hops overtones; mostly malt, and the flavor follows as rather malty and subdued, especially for something that is called a pilsner. Toasty, semi-sweet finish. This beer would rate much higher if they called it a bitter or ESB, in my opinion - it’s a decent brew, but not a pilsner!

On tap at Trap Rock. Poured a lighter to medium yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grass, some straw, and some grains. Watery and thin body.
