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

Well- Balanced, inoffensive at worst, nice and fruity at best. Great, thin head, too.

Sweetly hopped aroma, grassy notes. A beautiful, frothy but quickly dissipating off-white head over pale gold. Wonderful mouthfeel with the correct level of effervescence. Nice marriage of esters, sweetness and hops...great take on the style.

This beer can compete against Eurpoean Pilseners. It has a slightly stronger body and slightly more hop flavor than it’s continental cousins. I consider this to be in my top five favorite Pilseners.

Tap. I waited till I could try it at the source. Pours crystal clear golden, small creamy off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is light, Bready, grass, grain. Flavor has a hint of sweetness, light plus bitterness, fresh baked bread, field grass, hints of honey, some grain. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Solid for style.

tfontana (202) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle in pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage, Dover NH. Aroma is bready malt with yeasty dough, leather and basement, mild burnt herbs. Appearance is clear pale yellow with greenish tinge (a little urine-like) with persistent but mild sparkle and ephemeral head with only trace lacing. Taste is medium bitter and sour. Palate is medium bodied with oily texture with lively carbonation and long very dry finish. Overall,

Gription79 (2682) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Had on draft at Tap & Handle. Pilsner malt is in both the aroma and flavor. There is a firm floral hop aroma, fruity, sweet malts, grainy, light bitterness in the finish, honey. This is a tasty beer.

Bottle. Pour is clean gold with a nice white head. Aroma and flavor are so clean and enticing with floral hop notes and light clean malty notes dominating. Also a touch of yeast in there. Love this beer.

climberbob (305) - Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle into tulip. Golden. Grassy, malty, bready floral aroma and taste. Something else unique and enticing that I can't identify. Smells and tastes like a lazy late summer afternoon. Great Pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear yellow, little head. Aroma grassy, biscuity. Taste is balanced maybe a touch of caramel with hops behind. A good clean lager.

Alengrin (3536) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2015
Classic American craft lager, I assume this was a bold reaction against the culture of bland mass-marketed pale lagers at the time. Bottle bought at GBBF and consumed at home. Medium sized, yellowish white, regularly shaped head, colour a deep and bright yellow golden, clear with quiet sparkling. Lovely American hops aroma, impressions of lemon zest, starfruit, yellow grapefruit, field flowers, fresh cucumber, hint of pine resin, unripe pineapple, even a touch of lavender, white bread. Crisp, clean onset, minerally fizz but refined, smooth honeyish malt sweetishness, touch bready, shifting to a relatively long hoppy finish, very aromatic with delicate citrus peel and flower notes, very subtle salty edge but most of all deeply bittering and drying the throat in a non-agressive, elegant way. Must have been one of the first ’IPLs’ (India pale lager), the kind of ’boutique Pilseners’ delicately hopped with IPA hops and thus making a statement that pale lager is able to achieve great finesse as well. Lovely, almost ’feminin’ kind of graciousness, this is the kind of pale lagers that should be a lot more on the foreground in craft beer culture.

Tap@gallows. Yellow golden, clear. Light old bready pils malty nose, some honey, herbs. Med light bodied, herby, quite nice wet/bushy hoppy flavour. Bit murky bready, but I like the hops here.
