2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the Mondial, from 12 oz bottle. Very clear, pale yellow-green, with a lasting dollop of tiny foam...lemon-butterscotch (diacetyl? yes) nose isn’t overwhelming bad, just boring...fairly crisp, sweet honey-touched, with a lively mouthfeel, but the malt isn’t full enough and the grassy character is lacking. Wow, I’m the lowball on this one...but I gotta call it.

Clear lightly carbonated golden. Gentle cover of white foam lasts on top of the beer. Highly floral hops hugs bright grainy, toasty malt. Faint diacetyl notes are a good match to the tea-like herbal undertones, reminiscent of dandelions and lemon. Grassy, floral and citrusy palate. Cuts short with a firm bite of bitterness that refreshes the palate a lot. Intense dry lemon character. Smooth palate, but perhaps a touch too little carbonation. Medium bodied. Good.

Herbal hoppiness and light straw combine for an interestingly attractive aroma. If it weren’t filtered, this would probably be much more of a countryside.
Citrus drops over crushed grain. Lingering grassy hoppiness dominates the German-like pils malts. Simple and well-done, an aptly named pils.
Sunflower fields are fun to watch.

Slight hops in the nose and taste, but hops adds more to the bitterness than to the nose or taste. Bitterness in turn takes a little away from the summer nature of this brew, though a little honey does sweeten it out. Overall, a mildly delicious pilsner and for a hoppy pils not anywhere on par with PrimaPils!

A slightly hoppy pilsner (is there such a thing?) I’m not a big pilsner fan, but this one does it for me.

This is an excellent summer pilsner, light and refreshing, good hoppy taste, nice biiter toungue feeling with a sweet dry finish, Been a big fan of Troegs for a while and this beer is no exception to the great lineup of beers from this Harrisburg Brewery
