Smooth pilsner, hoppy. Hints of citrus, in aroma and taste. Easy to throw down...I drank 11 last night and wokeup on the floor, but when I was drinking them they were easy to drink. So, yo, Im about to rate my next beer...lata.

Nice golden colour with some head. Aroma of citrus fruit and hops. Nice hop bitterness with a light body. A good, crisp pilsner, I’ll have to get some for summer.

Beautiful pilsner. Very slight haze, golden colour with a big lasting white head. Aroma of bread and hops. Smooth and dry on the palate with a gentle carbonation. A nice balance of hops and malts.

Trying a single 12 ounce bottle. Pine forest and citrus is the aroma. Pours a light gold/yellow. White frothy head that dissolves in a few minutes. Lemon citrus and hops stand out in the flavor. A little watery, but still enough flavor to put a smile on your face. Finishes with a slight hop bitterness. It would be easy to drink several of these. A good Pils..

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow color with a small white head and good lacing. There was more smell to this beer than taste.

Light, Heineckeny product with a salty, crackery taste that finishes with a hoppy hint. Not a favorite, but I’m not a Pilsner man.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one pours out golden-orange and the aroma is of a floral perfume. The white head disappears quickly leaving a small lacing on the glass. The flavor is hoppy bitter citrus and leaves you with a dry lingering hoppy finish. I enjoyed this one very much. Try it.

(bottle) Hazy gold with nice white head. Floral hops aroma. Flavor is mostly hops and a distinct flavor of raspberry.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells pilsy. Looks pilsy. "Heaps o’ hops?" How about "Smattering of Saaz?" Must admit that the creamy (dangerously smooth finishing) mouthfeel of this brew is the only thing keeping it away from the pee-water brews most ratebeerians detest. Okay warm-weather session, for swilling while jumping off a pontoon boat, but I wouldn’t try to muscle this past any serious northern-latitude drinker in the middle months of winter.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2007 Massive white head that will not disiipate and forms Alps-like structures, yellow in a pilsner glass. Slightly hoppy, sweet aroma. Very hoppy flavor profile, a bit sweet with hints of dark fruits. Complex. Finishes in balance of bitterness and light caramel. Was looking for a world class American pilsner and found it. Wonderful.
