COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps o’ hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher. One of Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews

Bottled. Hazy golden colour with dense and lacy white head. Sweet hop aroma. Moderate to strong hopy flavour with a good bitter kick to it. Bitterness attacks the palate but in a nice way.

jables (101) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Pours hazy deep gold with a quick dissipating head. Smells...mmmh hoppy, saaz hops all over the place with lemon and white grapes. Taste is crisp dry saaz hops and lemon. Great crisp, dry finish. Body is near perfect per style and quite refreshing. This a a brew I hold up as an example to macro-swillers that Americans actually make better lagers than the "king of beers", seriously, they need convincing sometimes. Drinkability is great and the flavor never dissapoints. This along with Hacker-Pschorr Hefe are my official lunch brews.

Fresh meadows and hops emerge from this nice golden beer topped with a thin white head. Very smooth with a nice edge to the maltiness. Touch of bitter in the lingering aftertaste. Very nice.

Bottle. Nice clear golden color with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a bite of hops at the end. Nice, smooth, sticks to your palate. A great Pils.

Bottle pours a translucent light yellow.   Minor milky head, good carbonation, decent lacing.   Straw and light hops on the nose.   Malty sweetness up front, gliding into a light hop palate, finishing with a clean, crisp, light, spicey, hop taste .   A very good and easy drinking Pils.   Thanks goes out to Pabobcat for the trade!

Crockett (1032) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Slightly hazy straw yellow pour. Fluffy head with some lace. Aroma was clean and hoppy. Hopped bitterness followed by soft malty caramel. Vegetable/herb or carotine flavours. Somewhat soapy. It was nice, but I would really like to try a fresh one. Mine was a couple of months past it's prime. Still very nice.

The best pilsner I have ever had...beautiful clear golden coloring, with a very phrothy head. Aroma nice and hoppy. Flavor dominantly very hoppy, with a hint of a spice(maybe cloves?) My first beer by this company, and it's a heck of an offering.

eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - FEB 29, 2004
A near perfect Pilsener by what is increasingly becoming my favorite brewery! It smells like a good beer right from the start! Taste is wheaty, grainy, slighly sour/bitter with a hint a spice, a bit of rice, a little, and plenty of delicious, pungent hops. Very well-balanced and very delicious!

zach8270 (3858) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pours a very pale yellow with a thick and lasting white head. Aroma is a mix of citrus and a lot of hops. Initial taste is a light mix of malt and citrus with a strong hop followup and a slightly spicy finish.

Pours a hazy yellow with a nice white head. Nose is full of lemon zest and hops. Nice tingly mouthfeel. Light malts with lemon and hops on the tongue. Nice dry and peppery finish. This was one good pilsener!
