3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2006 Pours golden, clear with 1 finger head.
Nice, persistent carbonation. Crisp and malty aromas, subtle green hops. Excellent combination of malts with a balance of saaz-like hops. Rounded out with a mild bitter finish.
The first pilsener that brought me to the light side...

Very bitter Pils. A decent example of the style. Some piney notes. Not my type of pils tho.

There are a couple "pilsner"s from Triumph bangin around onthe list but this one is simply "Pilsner" on their board. I was actually kind of impressed by this one. They did it pretty well. Sharp like willblake said, upon reading his rating I was like "yes! exactly!" so I’ll just say: All ratings beneath mine for this beer were written by geniuses

02.06.05 Princeton. Pale, pale, pale golden with a big old fluffy, light, white head. Light grassy, floral aromas faintly mask the Slovak mysteries, for instance, why brew a pilsner for February? But it’s very good. Previous Triumph pils attempts I’ve thought have been missing the sharpness I crave in the style but this one hits the mark. Grassy and peppery, crisp and sharp. Well done.
