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

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear and golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma of bready pale malts and floral grassy hops. Tastes clean, sooth, mildly sweet taste of pale malt and well balanced floral hops. Clean, dry finish. Not overly bitter, very well done pils! I could drink a lot of this. A great sessionable beer.

pours a off gold with a cloudy texture.. smells of grass and hops. at first there as a sweet malty taste followed by a decent hop profile which doesn’t overpower. refreshing, liberating.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale yellow with a good sized, white head. Aroma of straw and hops. Clean aroma, sharp. Nice lacing and lively carbonation. A distinctively bitter flavour and also a lingering, bitter finish. A satisfying pilsner but not for the faint of hops.

OK-I really love Pils and this american version makes me proud to be from the US (but of German ancestry). Has a nice proteiny head that laces the glass, good floral hop aroma. Bigger than usual hop bitterness- bridges the gap between continental pils and big hoppy American beers. Easy drinking, good clean flavor, very nicely brewed, I could have a keg of this on tap at all times. Few if any other US breweries can make a pils like this. Gets a solid 4.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh floral aroma that reminds me of drying clover, effervescent head that quickly diminishes to a bit of lacing, nice strong malt backbone with a pleasant bitter finish
