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

Clear golden straw hue with a half-inch stark white head. Nice carbonation. Nose of sharp floral, grassy hops and crisp, clean lager yeast. Palate begins with more of the same, then develops a sharper hoppiness. Medium bodied.

Pours a clear light gold and has a thin white head that sticks around while you drink. Aroma is fruity with a clean yeast and a light malty note. Taste is wonderful very crisp and the hop selection is on point with this and it takes over the flavor for a moment before the german light pils comes through. There is a citrus element that comes through the aroma and flavor that makes this beer very drinkable and refreshing, I think it is a good representation of style..

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 is it a pilsener? it's so delicoius with no annoying nose or corny taste. actually, has a surpising sweet malt taste, unlike most even czech pilseners. a pleasure the whole way through. note: a good one to wean stubborn americans onto something great.

This is my favorite Pilsner/regular lager I’ve had. Light gold with a well retained, small white head. Aroma is full of wonderful hops, germanic in character with perhaps a little citrus in there. Taste is wonderful and balanced with complex, soft and bready malts, rich without being too sweet, classic pilsner style hopping with tones of herbs and subtle citrus. Definitely an american take on Pilsner. On the light side of medium bodied, and very smooth with a crisp finish. I’d agree with the commercial description that there’s something elegant about this beer. It’s also my new "most refreshing" beer, just edging out Fuller’s London Pride, and will be bought again for post-lawn work relaxation on beautiful summer nights.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 Excellent taste, smooth, flavorsome with out being overwhelming, I can see what the person who mentioned banana bread means. Worth a trip to Philly.

matalec1984 (115) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Pours a pleasant golden yellow with a nice think white head. Aroma is bright and hoppy, notes of grass, and pine. A slight note bready malts lingers through. light sweetness, and quite hoppy. The hop flavor balance is good, but it is fairly bitter for the style. slightly sour with a long lingering aftertaste. The beer has a slick feel to it that sticks to the back of your throat. While pils are not my favorite style I guess I missed the boat on this particular one. I’ve had many other pils that I enjoy more then this one the long bitter aftertaste and mouthfeel just aren’t for me

Frothy white head on a clean pale yellow body. Crisp and a bit of grassy acidity from the hops. A good summer beer.

Out of a 12 0z ice cold bottle poured a golden brew with a nice white head.The aroma was of an abundant amout of noble hops with an underlying sweet maltiness.It was smooth on entry with a crisp bite of hoppiness.A very nice pilsener indeed.
