4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge, lacey, white head, sparkling foam.
Aroma has citrus notes, lemon zest, flowers, and pineapple.
Delightfully light texture, long, welcome finish. Truly this must be the thinking man's "lawnmower beer". Possesses a certain zing that reminds me somehow of Duvel. I'm normally an ale man, but I would never pass up on
this pilsner. Are the fine folks of Downington, PA aware that among their modest ranks walk these brewing gods disguised as mortals?

This is one of the best pilsners out there hands down. It pours an nice golden hazy color and retains a full head. Has a grassy aroma to it, with hints of lemon. This brew has a rich aromatic hoppy taste which makes this a trully exceptional excellent brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2004 Solid golden color with a huge foamy white head. Looks exactly what the ideal pilsner should look like. Aroma is kinda grassy, almost like hay, but then again, I seem to always feel pilsners have that smell to them. Has a dry biting taste to it with almost a spicy climax as it goes down your throat and leaves a little hoppy aftertaste at the end. Overall, a good pilsner, but nothing I would consider great.

A very good pils. Pours gold with good head and lacing. Aromas of hops, citrus, and underlying malt. Finishes very smooth, slightly dry, with blasts of hops and slight citrus. Great pils.

On draft at Johnny Brendas for Happy Hour. The barman was upstairs, still the chef came over to pour a pint. Straight up Pilsner, one to make the Krauts proud.

Floral nose. Hoppy with a bit of corn (but in a good way) flavor. If this was my first Pils I'd like the style.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale yellow with a medium head. Hops, hops, and more hops dominate the aroma and flavor. Typically, I am all for hops, but these hops taste like they were sitting in a sock drawer. It's a little on the dry side at the finish. I wanted to like it, but it just tasted like it was water that had hops sit in it for 10 minutes.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden color, nice head. Aroma is truly pilsner with a bit more hoppyness. The flavour od the german malts provides a strong backbone for generous hopping. Finish is dry, crisp and very drinkable. One of the world's best pilsners.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Hazy golden yellow with a medium diminishing white head. Mostly floral aroma with hints of light bread, honey, lemon, and straw. Medium slightly creamy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Refreshing. Mostly bitter flavor of light bread, citrus, pepper, and some wood/pine. I usually don't like pilseners much, but this one is very good.
