Poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was sweet with some floral notes. Notes of apples, lemons, and malt. Some yeastiness showed as well. The flavor started sweet with some citrus and malty notes. Dry finish with a very long moderate bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden bronze with a dense, frothy, nicely-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale malt and floral Saaz hops. Body starts lightly sweet with a touch of biscuity malt and good bittering and flavor hop balance. Full, creamy palate is distinct for a pilsner, but enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice grassy hop forward pils with a soft honeyed malt character. This beer is a vehicle for the great Saaz aroma and bittering, delivering on the hop goods like no other pils.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Davecooks. I must admit up front that I’m not much of a pilsner guy, but I’ll try to be fair in my rating. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. The aroma is all Saaz hops, but subtle. In the mouth it’s quite carbonated (as the style should be) and crisp. The flavor is, as advertised, heavily influenced by the Saaz hops, but with a fair amount of malt. It’s still on the bitter side, but it has enough body to be interesting to this ale snob.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft. Clear, yellow color with a sizable white head. Malts dominate the aroma. Light malty flavor with a slight earthy hoppiness. Admittedly not my favorite style but I still found this beer rather enjoyable. Very clean.
