ChainGangGuy (4376) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
330ml bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, straw-hued body with a frothy, but soon receding, white head.

Smell: Doughy, grainy scent of pils malt, a little yeast, and some noted grassy tones. It’s a pils!

Taste: As with the nose, pilsner malt with touches of fresh dough, cracked grains, and a little basic sweetness. Thin vein of lemon with some herbaceously grassy hops. Amply bitter. Dry, crispish finish yielding both refreshment and a quenched thirst.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation, nearingly crisp.

Overall: A sure-footed, solid pils.

Crisp clean malt taste with the light bittering hops characteristic of the style. Good lacing and head retention. Does wonderful credit to a pilsener and very refreshing.

Beautiful fluffy head on pour, and nice strong malty aroma. This is going to be good, right? Taste is weak and watery, unexpected as it smelled so good. Nothing is left on the palate either, so I makrked it down for that. I was posed for something great, and got just plain mediocre....

Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a white head with real nice lacing. Pale malts, corn(?), nice refreshing hop character. Very refreshing, a bit watery. Nice pilsner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a straw color. Malt on the nose. Easy to drink. Hoppy, but not overly so. Good pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ccex (924) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2012
On tap at Mirabell Restaurant, Chicago. Poured a pale golden color with huge and lasting white head. Smells of hay and hops. Aroma is the same but distinctly German. Very clean finish. Body is light to medium with slight carbonation. Very refreshing and satisfying for a pilsener.

Something didn’t quite gel, but. Yellow pour with thin white head, little lacing. Hay and honey aroma, very full. Malty flavour, with some corny notes, something didn’t malt. Light lasting hop finish
