5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aroma: This is in fact a pilsner, weird cause it smells like an amazing IPA! Huge citrus hops on the nose, like a bouquet of freshly picked backyard hops thrown into one of those fizzy yellow beers weíre all supposed to dislike. Very impressive!
Appearance: A nice pale straw to golden color with tons of CO2 bubbles fighting their way up the glass to escape. The head is maintaining a sturdy two finger height despite my best efforts to restrain it to fit in my favorite pils glass. A very nice champagne looking pils.
Taste: Wow hops! This beer should be its own style IPP because I donít know if you can have this much hop character, at least the huge fruity hop kind, in a pils. After the blast of hop flavor a very pleasant malt accent comes through lending a bit of rich and delicately sweet flavor to balance all those alpha acids. Then the beer hops your face off again.
Palate: Light and spritzy on the palate due to the great acidity and carbonation. This lager is very light in body and left my mouth very refreshed and yearning for another sip.
Overall: The best pils Iíve ever had, ever. This beer has so much character and flavor it could be overwhelming to find it in a pils but the balance of flavors comes together to create on extremely hoppy and satisfying lager!

a good pilsner, great bright yellow pour with a thick white head. a bit hoppy, malty, but balanced. it gets a bit more bitter at the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The second of four brews in a sampler pack from the nearby Victory brewery. A very clear greenish-gold hue with a diminutive loose-beaded head. Smells a bit like their lager, only significantly more hoppy. Very light, crisp flavor with just the right amount of hop bite before becoming IPA-like. Truly an awesome pilsener. Prost!

This is a very good pilsner. On tap @ Stone Bistro. Pour is beautiful gold, slightly hazy, half-finger head which retains very well. Aroma bread cereal, hints of grass & floral. Taste is sweet, nice amount of body, finished with a slightly sweet aftertaste. This is a quality brew, and Iím very impressed. I would enjoy having this beer again soon.

a light bodied pilsner with a distinct smell. Minor head but thereís a lot going on when you taste the beer. Seems very fizzy as leaves a pleasant bitterness on the back of your throat.

This beer is wonderful. Bready and dry but still very bitter on the finish. Like a much more subtle IPA.

this is my favorite Pilsner... other pilsners tastes like liquified dry white toast to me, this one lacks the gag tickle in the back of the throat, itís a good, clean, crisp beer.

Pours a golden-yellow with a white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Has a bright hop aroma. The flavor is light, crisp, and dry, and big with a good malt backbone sort of hiding behind the hops. It leaves a wonderful bitter aftertaste reminiscent of celery. A fantastic pilsner and a wonderful gift, wish I had 5 more.
