Scrapersnbeer (1432) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Aroma consists of straw and hay. Hops are faint. Light golden yellow, decent head. Tastes malts and grainy - sweet in an under-baked way. Minor bitterness. Moderately crisp, very refreshing. Better than average pils.

ReggieDunlap (2924) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2012
Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has some straw and sweet maltiness...not much in the way of hops. Flavor is malty and sweet with straw and just a touch of leafy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a sweet finish that bitters slightly. Not hoppy enough for my taste.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2012
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of malt, bread, straw, and a hint of Noble hops. Poured very pale yellow in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, slight spiciness from the hops, and grain. Light body. Slightly chalky, lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, light Noble hop, grain finish is slightly chalky, slightly dry, slightly sweet and light to medium bitter.

Draft. Deep yellow body with a frothy, white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of grass and toasted grain. The flavor is lightly bitter and lightly to moderately sweet. It finishes lightly to moderately bitter and lightly sweet. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Biscuit taste with notes of straw and grass. Citrusy hop in finish. Refreshing, crisp and inoffensive.

TATE (265) - Lubec, Maine, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a straw color with a thin white head. Not much for bubbles. Aroma bready with slight citrus. Though it does not look well carbonated, there is quite a bit of fizz on the tongue. The beginning is very light and refreshing and the finish is more bitter than I was expecting with pretty good hop bitterness. Overall a pretty good pilsner.

Jabic (385) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Ar: Grainy malt, sulfur - a bit grassy. Ap: Crystal-clear straw-gold - huge white head with very good retention and chunky suds of lacing as it subsides. T: Clean and malty up front - some grass and corn sweetness - medium-light bitterness - doughy malt with sulfur and a touch of spicy hops on the finish. P: Light body with medium-high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Easy-drinking German pils - clean and malty - a touch more bitterness would be nice, but still has a fair grip of bitters.

rjplumer (357) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Pours a soft yellow haze with a one finger head that fades quick. Mild classic Pilsner aroma. Faint yeast notes too.Clean start with mild bitterness in the middle with a clean finish. Refreshing and enjoyable. Nice if your looking for something simple and enjoyable.
