LOVE IT. One of my summer session favorites. Drinks easily without being watered down. Has that nice bitter euro hop kick without causing your mouth to sour and become fatigued. Big bight golden sunny straw colors with a nose of fresh grass, herbal hops, and dry cereal grains. I often bring this camping with friends and use it as an introduction to the world of really good beer.

Pale yellow appearance poured from a bottle with small head. Taste was good but not my favorite pilsner...the bitter finish of the hops was too much for this type of beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed 9-2-10. I recently posted a thread on BA asking people about their favorite "flagship" brews. This one came up a lot, and with good reason. Iíve had this pilsener many times, but not in a while, and Iíve never reviewed it: Ap: Sunflower yellow/gold, with about a 1/2 inch head and moderate carbonation. Ar: Victory hop profile and then some! This is just pure malty, yeasty, flowery goodness! T: German hops are present, and the beer is mildly sweet, with a slight bitter hop finish. No unpleasant lingering - everything is great! P: Smooth as silk; Very "clean" beer and nearly flawless in regards to mouthfeel related to style. O: I think I drank this one in about 2 minutes! Quite simply, the best pilsener on the market!

Entered from backlog, drank one right after a Troegs Sunshine Pils. Medium gold with a nice gentle white head. Really nice, gentle hops, crisp, fresh pils malt. Light malt backbone. A lot different than the Sunshine Pils, this was more hoppy and more bitter. Preferred the Sunshine a bit.

Light, clear, golden pour with thin white head. Nasty aroma of every crummy lager Iíve ever smelled. I guess this just isnít my style. With all the build up and hype I had heard about this beer, I was really expecting something more. I donít get what all the fuss is about. The "heaps oí hops" are definitely hidden...umm; why have hops if you are going to hide them? But I sure get a heap oí lingering German malt unpleasantness on the back of my tongue. Like licking an ashtray. For all you folks who like this stuff, knock yourselves out. Iíll take a nice a pale ale or IPA any day.

Kinda generic pils/lager. More depth of flavour than your average carbonated macro-bumph I guess, but overall not that impressed.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. This was great. It poured a clear golden color with a thin head. The aroma is of hops with a floral notes. The taste is just the right bitterness with real clean crisp finish. A must try!!

Poured with a big white head; clear yellow/gold in appearance. Malty aroma with a little hops. Lightly ibtter, very floral and lightly malty in flavor, with bitterness lingering. Best pilsner I've ever had.

Bottle. Hazy straw color. Light hop aroma and hop and malt flavor. Not as hoppy as I expected. Crisp, balanced finish. Very little bitterness. Very easy drinking.
