12 oz. bottle. The aroma kicks! Hops abound here. Pours a beautiful, strong yellow, with a low head. Slightly floral and citrusy lemon zest. Little bit of bread from the yeast in the background. A very refreshing summer pour.

NikkTwist (1529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draft at Good Dog. Clear golden yellow pour with a large white fizzy/foamy head. Splashes of lace. Lots of floral citrus notes with an unusual powdery element. Lemon zest. Pollin. Dandelions. Buttered biscuits. Chalk dust. Grass. Orange juice. Watermelon rind. Green bananas. Green tomatoes. Watercress. Artichokes. Fresh oak and pine planks. Lemon meringue pie. Definitely a pilsner but also reads as a mild IPA. Refreshing.

Its body bright golden color with some cool sparkling carbonation. The head is small, about one finger thick, bright white in color and slowly fades down to a small slick ring of lace. There is a full bouquet of mostly floral/spicy hops with light pale malt and just a slight hint of sulfur. The flavor is very crisp and clean with a solid medium body. Hop flavor is bright, floral, and clean with a pleasing level of bitterness. Just under the hops there is a modest level of crisp, dry, and pale white bready malt. The finish is quick, dry and fairly clean with some light hop bitterness. Its carbonation is quite active which gives it a lively and refreshing texture.

Familiar look for a pils. Muted straw yellow hues with a bit more head/lacing from the generous hopping in this rendition. Aromas of chalkdust, melon rind, sparkling lemon water, and crisp noble hops. Lively carbonation with tinge of lemon juice and overly dry finish. A bit on the acrid side of the bitter scale, as well. Give me a Prima or Pikeland, please.

Aroma is a bit on the sweet side. Taste actually has a bit of hop flavor. Overall a good pilsener.

BLADT (499) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean lemon color with active head. Nose is full on German pilsner malts - strong cereal and doughnotes - matched with pleasant citrus hops. Inviting. Medium, well balanced body. Slight spice on the back end. Lots of cereal malts. Crisp. Nice carbonation. Highly sessionable. Nice showing.

Berard (270) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Draft. Pours light yellow with frothy head that lingers on the edges. Above average carbonation typical for the style. A nice pilsner with a slight bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
