Sample draft at N. Third. Too sweet for me - prefer a drier and hoppier pils. Moved on to a Paulaner.

Just tried the new 2004 vintage at the Beer Yard Troegs tasting in Wayne, PA. Very deep canary-yellow color, with medium head. Good aroma of citrus, hops, and slight yeast. This one is much hoppier than most pilsens, and finishes suoer smooth, crisp, hoppy, and citrusy. Hall of Famer. Right up there with Victory Prima pils and Lancaster pils as far as I'm concerned.

Cloudy yellow body. Medium ivory-white head, good head. Lots of carbonation. Smells of lemony hops and sugary malt. Taste is sweet, bright and hoppy. Sweet cake spices too on palate. Aftertaste is mild hops.

Cloudy yellowish straw color, medium white head. Yeasty lemony and herbal aroma. Wonderful! Almost looks and spells like a witbier actually. No matter. I could sniff this all day. Lemony flavor, clean light palate. Spicy hop finish. Interesting and zesty. Nice one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2006 Ahhh nothing like kicking back in the middle of January when it is 10 degrees Farenheit outside and drinking a nice Pilsner. Hazy golden body topped by a nice white head that clings to the glass nicely. Floral hoppy aroma with some light citrus. The flavor is more lemony then expected, the hops are more subdued then I prefer for this style. Very crisp finish with lingering bitterness and lemon flavors.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasant, musky ale-like aroma with hints of mown grass. Deep, dark yellow color with a tight quickly dissipating head. Tart, spicy flavor leaning more towards a pale ale. Citrus like notes. Nice bitter hoppiness on the back end. Very decent pils.

Was told that this might be past its prime. If only other pils could hold up so well. So crisp I think I heard the sips I was taking crack. Complex in a uni-dimensional way. Wuh? I mean that while it isn't super full bodied, the finish is so pronounced and long lasting that it seems to expand the character of the beer. Only wish I had more. Thanks to urbnhautebourg

Aroma: All floral hops, relatively mild and pleasing.
Appearance: Golden, with frothy white head.
Taste: A nice version of pilsner : crisp with mild floral bitterness. Aftertaste is very mild bitterness.
Nice pilsner -simple, light, and not overbearing in flavor.
