Cakes (411) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2010
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.

TH28 (365) - - JUL 22, 2016
12oz bottle. 7/21/16 bb date. Appearance: As pale yellow as it gets, crystal clear, with a light fluffy white head Aroma: Herbal and spicy Saaz hops with a touch of bready malt. Taste: Soft, lightly bready and caramel malt with a fairly strong diacetyl butter, giving way to a strong herbal and spicy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a moderately high carbonation. Finish: Dry, sticky on the palate, with lingering herbal hoppiness Overall: It’s almost like drinking a slightly lighter Pilsner Urquell. Definitely has the soft bready and caramel malty profile, with a slightly stronger diacetyl note, and a bright, sharp bitterness that balances it all out. Beautiful beer

CharmCityCrab (244) - Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2016 Watery. Some pale malts. There?s a hop presence, which differentiates it from macro pilsners, noble hops I would guess. Very drinkable and refreshing with a low ABV (Which can be either good or bad depending on the situation). Distinctly lighter in taste than well-known mainstream craft lagers and pilsners like Boston Lager and Brookyln Lager. Nothing offensive in here, but unless your goal is to drink someone drinking Miller Lite under the table bottle for bottle while drinking craft (This is a 4.5 ABV versus Miller Lite?s 4.2 ABV, so the other guy would have a slight advantage, but not much of one), or you get a few in a mix pack with some really good beers (That would be me, the sour in the 2016 summer mix pack rocks), I don?t see why you?d get it with other better craft options on the table. Maybe a beach or lawnmower beer? Could also be good for someone who wants a little bit more flavorful than a macro beer, but not much more. You know, different strokes for different folks. Nothing that tastes bad here. Its fine, just a bit light on the flavor. Also, to be fair, pilsners generally go a little malt-light to accentuate the hops, even though they aren’t hops heavy eithee, so I can’t say this isn’t to style. Its medicre, but in a non-offensive way.

Draft. Clear pale yellow. Aroma is light hoppy with citrus, tropical fruits, mango and sweet melon. Taste is the same with a slight bitterness towards the finish. Light mouthfeel, light carbonation and clean finish.

koleminer20 (2412) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Flight shared with ebone1988 at the brewery. The pour is a crystal clear bright golden yellow with a tiny ring of head and no lace. The aroma is almost nonexistent. There’s nothing there at all. There is a light malt happening that just kind of makes for a very light golden amber presence. The flavor is not good. It’s got a light but of sweet malt up front and then it falls apart. Light sweet nothing. The mouth feel is thin and light. Very watery. The carbonation doesn’t really exist. The aftertaste is sweet and light with a strange maltiness.

hman43 (1114) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2016
It pours light golden with a moderate white head. It is very clear. The head does produce a little bit of lacing. The aromas are grainy with a low amount of flowery compliment. It has a sweet start with moderate bitterness in the taste. The grainy flavors are highlighted with low floral notes. It has a clean taste. It has a light feel to it with moderate bitterness that last through the finish and lingers a bit. It is clean and crisp. Overall, this is a clean, crisp beer that highlights the grainy aromas and flavors with floral compliments.
