3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trade from drowland - thanks! Murky light orange, soft white head, but of lacing. Some cake mix and yeast in the aroma. Flavor has a nice Saaz induced hoppy bite, a bit of honey sweetness, some yeastiness, finishes with some cereal-like graininess. Mouthfeel has a bit of creaminess to it. Not bad at all.

12oz bottle fresh from the brewery. Wow, I had no idea this was rated so high as a pils (#3 at the time). I honestly had hoped it was a landbier; no worries though because this rocked. Huge flavor for the style with some lingering bitterness. This is not a timid, watery offering. well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy, golden w/ rocky white head and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, tropical fruit (pineapple), yogurt, dough and flowers. Avg carbonation, crisp/med body. Some nice malts giving it a biscuity backbone w/ light, fruity sweetness. Hops balance nicely & dry the finish, bringing in some herbal and spice notes. Very good pilsner, plenty of complexity. Not really a thirst-quencher, but very satisfying.

Big thanks to GT2 for this one. 12oz bottle pours hazy golden/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is very malty, slight hops, caramel, bready yeast, and fig. Nice full rounded pilsener flavor, flavors of yeast, hops, with a slight spice. Nice Pils!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy yellow in my tumbler with a creamy white head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is bready malt, with a slight yeasty character. Body is thin, and a little lifeless. Flavor is much the same. Slight bready malt, with a yeasty bite. almost reminds me of a hefeweizen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a slightly murky gold color with a thick head on top. There’s some light lacing on the glass. Very malty in the aroma; pils malt, bread, caramel, and a bit of grass and herbal notes follow. The flavor is better than the aroma. Sweet bready malt is here with a little cream corn and grainy herbal notes but it gets crisp and dry in the finish with quite a bit of bitter grassy hops. As this warms, it reminds me a little of Prima Pils, which I didn’t initially see the comparison. Perhaps not as clean as I’d like but this is a pretty solid Pils.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of mild malt along with a few notes of lemon. The flavor is mild bready malt followed by some light lemon and mild-moderate hops bitterness. No problems.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2011 Bottle. This is one of the best pilsners I’ve ever had. Nice hay yellow body with solid white head. Very crisp, lots of hops for a pilsner. And yet, its super balanced and smooth. Just a perfect summer drinker.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a hazy yellow color with an enormous white head. I don’t know if this was over-carbonated, but the head is way too big. Aroma has lots of pepper and oranges. Some cereal notes as well. Taste is smooth, but a little watery. Good malty flavors with oranges and spices in the finish. Some hoppy notes with some dough and grass. I’m wondering if I got a bad bottle because this tastes different from most of the descriptions on here.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Whole Foods Market, DC 4-pack ($11): I just got this because I wanted a pilsener and I hoped that this would be passable. I was pleasantly surprised to find a beer geekish treat. Anyway, it pours a golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma has got the lemon, lemon soap, grassy hops, a few more hops here and there, oh and some hops. The different hop varieties play off of each other in some a clear and clever way in this beer that it is worth mentioning. Different kinds of bitterness are present from start to finish and the hop flavors undergo a veritable transformation. Leaves some lasting aftertaste and a smile on your mouth.
