3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden color with a medium fizzy head. Aroma is nice and malty with some grass, sweet pils malt, and a nice hop bitterness. Taste has a nicely hopped flavor to go with a crisp & smooth finish. Well done.

something about a crisp pilsener on a hot summer day. decent bitterness countered by decent maltiness. i find a well crafted pils like this just as enjoyable as a good ipa.

Samples at the Triumph. Pours clear deep golden hue with a lively carbonation. Aroma is of mostly herbal hops with some malt in the background. The body is medium and crisp. Flavors are of mostly bitter hops overpowering biscuit malt. Long, bitter finish. Nicely made Pilsener.

GABF 2007. Smells strongly of lemon grass and noble hops, which I associate more with the Czech than the German version of the style (which I like better anyway). Flavor is lightly citric and texture is crisp enough (although not as sharp as the best). Hops in the finish are delayed and become apparent only after a corny sugar right after the swallow (which really detracts). Not bad though.

Starts off well, nice clear deep straw color with a 1 finger head. Noble hops prevalent in the nose, but not overwhelming allowing the grain aromas to come through.
Slight sweetness from the grain, not to much, just right. Hop flavors and bitterness hanging around but not overpowering allowing the grain to shine. Finishes cleaner than expected, figuring the sweetness would last. Excellent pilsener!

Nice balance, and good amount of hops in this brew. Most brew pubs fall short with pilsners, not Triumph....good solid classic - nice dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold and crystal clear topped by a one finger, tight-white head. The hops came in first followed by a light malt flavor, not quite balanced, and then a lingering hop finish. The head had staying power.

The aroma is very little hops-likely noble hops. Tastes like warm bud light, kind of skunky tasting.
