Draft at the brewery taproom; Poured in the traditional slow style (nice!), this has a classice German visual appeal -- golden grain, bubbly, with a nice bright poofy head. Sharp hoppy aroma. Silky smooth and sharply, almost puckeringly, bitter. Classic German pils, reminiscent of a good ol’ Bitburger stubie. (#2929, 5/19/2007) roner77 (35) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2006
I cannot believe this beer is not rated higher. Friend tells me the brewer uses all czech malt and hops and it’s apparent in the beer. A clean, crisp taste with an ample amount of bitters. Finishes quick and clean. I have no real problems with this one. And for the price I prefer it to some European Pils. LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Draft - I found this beer to be well done. Nice malty flavor, crisp finish. Perfectly hoppy. Excellent beer in the German style. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Very nice pils that just has a strong crisp and grassy finish that takes the edge off a hot day. Well built with a dry straw like maltiness, subtle, but enough to hold up to the nice finishing hops. HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Very nice, crisp, full flavored, hoppy pilsener. Possibly the best American-made craft brewed pilsener I’ve had to-date. The hops really made this for me, which were very up-front and bitter, but with a clean finish that didn’t overwhelm the palate. Maybe a little heavy for the style, but a very good beer nontheless.

Bottle. Hazy gold with thin white head. Really ugly for a pils. Nice hoppy aroma with malt backbone. Malty flavour with hoppy bite. Pleasing finish. This is a tasty ugly looking pilsener. DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Draft at the Iron Horse in Missoula, MT. Clear light gold under a small white head. Nice Pils type aroma: grainy, biscuity, and floral. Body is medium, carbonation to match, and a clean, dry mouth feel. Well balanced between a thirst quenching, crisp bitterness and a light grainy sweetness. This was obviously fresh, and well crafted. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2008

Bottle. Pours golden with medium white head. Big flowery, leafy hop aroma up front, but lots of subtle noble complexity, not overwhelming, with honey-like malt in the background. Palate is very nice, a little fuzzy carbonation, mouth pleasing resins. Flavor is very full of fresh barley graininess, ends on a lightly bitter herbal note. A very well done german-style pilsner.
