   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
DrSilverworm (6367) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Code on bottle reads 16:08 1614 SP. Clear golden, slight orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some decent ropes of lace. Active looking carbonation. A few fine particles suspended in the body. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Slick texture. Corn, bready aroma. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitterness. Light bit of a bite in the finish. An OK pilsener, not great. A bit slick, but unnecessarily rough and heavy for the ABV. Not refreshing like a pilsener this light should be, not crisp.

First try at a micro brew and loved it. I am now working on tasting my way through micro brews.

beerbaaron (1242) - Arizona, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Clear yellow golden with fair, creamy white head, partially lasting. Aroma of pale male; bready, light grain, honey. Light body but not thin or watery. Crisp, some creaminess. Sweet, little spicy bitterness. Flavor is bready, a touch of honey and lemon, a little spiciness. Pretty good.

madvike (2728) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle - Pours clear yellow with a fluffy white head. Smell is...whoa...is this cold product? Smells of skunked light floral and perfume hops and pungent pils malt. And metal. It’s crisp, but not delicate like I like a pilsener to be. After that initial blast, the skunkiness subsides a bit, but this sucker still doesn’t seem too fresh. The taste is roughly the same, more malt-forward to begin, with some floral/herbal hops sneaking in to begin the finish. Lightly sweet malt stays in the mouth through the long finish. I could see this being way better if the smooth edges were sharpened up a bit, but this feels like something that’s sat in the cooler too long.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
jandd1983 (2552) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2011
It poured a pale yellowish color. The aroma was of a malt smell complemented by earth tones and some hoppiness. The taste was very grainy with slight sweet and bitter notes.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
nuplastikk (4392) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2009
12oz bottle. Filtered yellowish copper color with a nice white head that settles out pretty fast. Lots of CO2 bubbles. Crisp sweet aroma. Somewhere between light and medium bodied, with a solid bitter edge. Not particularly as clean as you might like it to be, with some corny sweetness in the finish. Overall though, this is still a pretty good product.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of grassy hops and corn. Taste is more of the same with a mild bitter finish. Crisp and bland, I’m just not a Pilsener man.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing this tasty pils. Gold body with faint head. Corn and faint hops on the aroma. Slightly bitter taste with more corn, malt and hops.
