Wow!! This is either #1 or #2 for the best domestic Pils that I have Tasted!! Great hop aroma, (probably Saaz, maybe Hallertau)edgy but soft at the same time.Just the nicest head that I have seen on a craft Pils! Beautiful finish, I could drink this every day and still totally enjoy it! Great job, Bill!!

This kind of changes my perception of what a pils can be. Wonderful floral hops in the nose are backed up by a nice malty backbone. Nice beer.

Pours a bright yellow cloudy golden with a white head. Lacing is pretty good and leaves age-rings around the glass. Aroma is mostly hops, dominated by citrus. Taste is hops and a tangy bitterness that shows in this light style. As far as pilsners go, this is the cream of the crop.

Pilseners are not my thing, but this one is nice. Pours a light yellow with minimal head. Nice hoppy flavor. The best Pilsener I have had.

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.

Pour is light golden with a big head which settles into no head. Smells slightly of apple and flowers and slight corky flavor. Crisp feel with a bright bitterness which lingers. This is refreshing and big beer.

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.

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!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.
