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

Aroma is deep malt and a hint of spicy aroma hopping. Appearance is crystal clear straw with small off white head that dissipates quickly. Taste is honey malt forward, followed by a bit of smooth floral tangy hop bitterness. Palate is light and crisp. Overall an excellent beer, but needs more hop bitterness and floavor for the Pils style. Still a magnificent tasting beer. The malt flavor in this is really second to none.

.2l pour from tap into a tiny shaker pint. Yellow and clear with lots of carbonation and a fizzy white head. Light bodied, fairly thin, moderately crisp, a little watery, and dry. Nose is light malt, very faint citrus. Taste takes a backseat to the dryness. Pretty bitter. Not too much going on here.

Clear golden colour. Bread and cereal aroma. A bit sweet, a bit grassy. Smooth texture.

On tap (16 oz) @ Mule Bar.

Appearance: Clear pale golden-blond with a small white head, good retention and heavy lacing.

Aroma: The nose is really fresh with breadied cereals, pils malt, nice grassy presence and mild hoppy presence.

Taste: Slightly sweet with grassy presence, bread, honeyed cereals, mild peppery notes, mild skunky notes and mild bitterness.

Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Clean and crisp. Rather dry finish. Mild grassy aftertaste.

Overall: Extremely easy drinkable... the glass was empty way too quickly. Clean and crisp with a nice focus on the pils malt. It’s kind of chewy as well because of the honeyed notes. Really tasty stuff.

On tap at Mule bar, Winooski. Clear gold pour with thin lacy white head. Aroma is really fresh, crisp and grainy, bready, light grassy notes. Taste is grainy, nice light dry bready malt notes, very light skunk, dusty hop, grassy. Palate is dry, light bodied with med carbonation. Tasty.

Really nice pilsner, but not the greatest out there. Has a nice look to is and is easy to drink, I just didn’t find it that special.

Spisane z Notatek kiedy Ratebeer był w zeszycie i główne poszukiwania nowych piw i smaków, odkrywanie świata to były głównie piwa zagraniczne w dużej mierze niemieckie, Piwo wypite: czerwiec 2008, Z notatek wynika że smakowało jak na tamten czas :)

On tap. Golden in color with small white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with grain notes. Light and sweet malty flavor. Very drinkable. Not bad.

This is definitely better than most eurolagers or even "pilseners." Light yellow pale body with lasting pillowy white head and nice lacing. Grainy aroma. Taste is richly malty with a slight hoppy balance. Even though it’s not very flavourful, it tastes rich and full, not thin and watery like other macro lagers.

C’est une de mes pils favorites. Elle a une robe claire, une mousse légère. Elle a comme toute bonne pils, un équilibre entre le malt et le houblon. Le mieux est de la boire sur une terasse. Ce n’est que du bonheur.
