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

Bottle courtesy of BuckNaked. Figured I would take a chance on this. oops. Great grassy aroma for a pilsner but everything else is still pilsner. Just o.k.

Very clear with just a slight aroma of straw. Flavor is very basic pilsner but then the hops are very overwellming.

Beerdedone (2625) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and yeast. Flavor is smooth with a bitter finish. Ok didn’t like the finish.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma is malt and slightly citrus. Flavor is the same and a little metallic & skunky. I’m not a big fan of pilseners anyway.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2006
This beer is hops throughout. Both aroma and flavor are loaded with them. There is some fruit in the aroma and some bitterness in the flavor as well. It is pretty much a rock solid pilsner but probably got points deducted for being one. That is not one of my favorite styles.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Poured a very vibrant, almost neon yellow. Very little or no head. Extremely hoppy aroma, sharp grassy scent as well. Reminds me a bit of St. Pauli Girl in aroma. Mouthfeel was very bubbly; high carbonation indeed. Taste was grassy and slightly citrus-like. Not my cup of beer, so to speak, but well-made I suppose. Left a very scratchy sore throat as a reminder of why I usually don’t drink light German-style beers.

shrubber85 (7606) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Bottle. Moderate malt and orange/pineapple hops aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange and pineapple hops flavor. A nice enough beer - fairly hoppy.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Bottle...not my favorite style but good nonetheless. I think I’d opt for a Pilsner Urquell over this if nothing else due to its extremely dry aftertaste. Good for summer.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Not much aromatics to speak of. Mild sweet maltiness and hay in the body with an earthy noble hop finish. An OK beer, good for a pilsner I suppose, but it’s just not my style.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
Draught at d.b.a. Crystal clear golden colour. Small fine-laced white head. Saaz-hop aroma. Very crisp. Nice malty aroma as well. Crisp bitterness. Solid malt backbone. Juicy malt flavours. A nice pilsener. Little aftertaste. Flavour stops abruptly.
