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

The best beer of this style by a long shot. Im not a big pilsner fan but this was very good. Golden in color, nice hop presence.

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2005
pours golden with lively co2, hop bitterness upfront, then slight maltiness follwed by a pleasent lingering hoppiness, overall a very enjoyable pilsner

Pours yellow like a Pilsner should... I only drink pilsners when only macros are available, but I WILL drink this one again. After reading a few other reviews, TheHoff said it tastes like Model, and I agree... It does kind of taste like Modelo, but that was good, too.

12 oz. Bottle. Pour a light golden color with a substantial long lasting white head. Excellent lacing. It carries a light grainy aroma with subtle hops. The initial flavor has a faint, sweet maltiness and closes with a dry, somewhat bitter finish. This is a light bodied pilsner that is refreshing and quite drinkable.

RPKLove (105) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 7, 2010
Light and hoppy floral aroma which is quite pleasant. Yellow, slightly hazy appearance with a decent size white head. There’s a nice hop bitterness for a pilsner. Medium-bodied and lively, should be equally enjoyable for pilsner and ipa drinkers alike.

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2003 - a clear golden color, highly carbonated with a nice head, aroma is nicely hopped with a malt presence; very smooth, hops are highly present along with a malty flavor, not even a bit watery, has some fruity characteristics - a truly great beer

Bottle (bomber) poured into a tumbler (not the best way to enjoy it, I know). Pours a golden yellow with a frothy head which diminishes to a light ring of foam. Aroma of dry hops, way more intense than I could’ve imagined. Very, very floral for a pils. Light malty character. Tastes very bitter for a pils, as some other reviewers mention, to me this brew is more of an APA, even on the brink of being an IPA (the hop character is too dry for that though). Body is light with a thin texture, carbonation is lively. Moderately abrupt, bitter finish. Objectively speaking, this brew is very well done, but this is not what I had in mind when I bought this. Too intense (hoppy/bitter) for a pils. But again, not a bad beer.

beergod (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2009
This pils pours a nice golden hazy color with a small head. The nose is slightly herbal and of robust hops. Flavors of tangerine,grapefruit peel, and finishes clean and crisp. Great pils!

AwYeh (102) - Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Pours a clear golden yellow, with one finger of foamy white head. Lots of bubbles flowing through the glass for as long as there’s beer in it. Smell is somewhat faint; earthy and of grassy hops. Taste is similar but much more clear; a very smooth flavor with a crisp finish of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is very thin, with medium carbonation. All around an excellent beer, and one I wouldn’t mind drinking regularly.

Pale but beutiful and just the right amount of bitter hop malt mix for a warm afternoon... no real celebrity hop stand out but a well crafted stand by.
