COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slightly bitter, mild, with a fragrance of hops - our pilsner is a cut above the ordinary. A beer with character.

CelticBrew (859) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Pours perfectly clear, pale yellow with a smallish white head of foam, that left sudsy lacing. Flavour is of malts, fruits and hops. A decent, ordinary pilsener beer. Sessionable, none the less.

oh6gdx (20930) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 1, 2009
Bottled@(apparently) Delirium Café, Gothenburg 2006. Clear golden colour with mediumsized creamy head, that leaves nice lace. Aroma is grassy hops, some slight earthyness as well as mild notes of cardboard. Flavour is quite the same, but the grassyness is stronger.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2008
...bottle. Poured a light clear and carbonated yellow with a large white head that was mostly lasting. On the nose were hops, grass, and other earthy notes. Flavors were of light malt, hops and a slight hint of citrus. Finished clean crisp and dry, a good pils, but of course does not come anywhere near the hefes.

floydian1 (1058) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 20, 2008
500ml bottle into wheat beer glass. Clear golden liquid with 3 fingers of white head. Flowery hoppy aroma. Smooth sweetish hoppy mid palate that finishes with a wonderfully crisp refreshing bitterness. This is a great under-rated pilsner in my opinion.

WalterSmidge (14) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2008
Pale golden colour, lively carbonation at first that settles down quickly... cream head, not strong. Smooth, Bitter and sweet.... slight sourness on the back of the tounge... Very refreshing... slight aftertaste.
