Fatehunter (2568) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Pours a thin head on clear light golden body.
Aroma is mild but nice grain and honey.
Taste starts sweet, then goes moderate lemon bitterness for a second, short finish.
Texture is crisp. Atom (2486) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2017
12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma grainy malt, bready lager yeast, and a light dry hop. Taste of yeasty semi-sweet grain malt, with light dry noble hops. A decent clean no frills pils. k9coug (116) - USA - DEC 18, 2016
I like my pilsners clear and this one is cloudy. It is better than it’s current 44 rating. Bubbly, but you can’t see it working through its cloudiness. Finishes quickly. Slightly lemony, made me sneeze. Kleg (278) - The Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Hazy pale yellow pour with a white head and fair retention. Minimal lacing. Crisp mouthfeel. Very light body. No discernable hops. Slight lemony flavor. Pedestrian but refreshing. badhack (559) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Lighter mouthfeel, tastes like biscuit, roasted malt, touch of something grassy or corn, halfway through the spicy hops come through. It’s subtle and persists through the finish.

DATE: November 24, 2016... OCCASION: a Thanksgiving spent in the city ends on the couch with more football... GLASSWARE: Hennepin pokal... pours a sallow yellow golden body, with a turbulent center... a snow-white head laces nicely to a half-finger width, ringing the glass like a crown while creating clouds inside its circle... lemon grass, sweet dough malts, slight metallic ping, some softened fruit, and off-putting phenol supply a mixed bag of aromas... mouthfeel is light, almost as a light beer might feel, with minimal effervescence and slight action at the throat...little to speak of at the teeth or tongue, though it is a bit creamy... banana, lemongrass, slight bittering hops, and watery attitude makes this a rather uneventful beer, despite its engaging name... not a beer much above the run-of-the-mill light beer to be had for less cash... not feeling this one, despite its promising start...

Misc.: Best by Nov. 21, 2016 (I think)
Finished some work rather early and decided to review a few beers. Was not in the mood for a pilsner, but why not? Picked this up at Trader Joe’s, breaking up a 6-pack. Generally a fan of Bear Republic, so hoping this would be decent.
Poured a light-to-medium clear color with two fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass, which is to be expected. Good watery lacing. Very good-to-outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.00)
Smelled those great Czech Pilsner notes, getting white bread, hazy, corn cereal, peppery spices, watery grain, grass, hay and hints of floral aromas. (Smell - 3.75)
Taste followed the nose, getting spicy peppery notes (looking at the bottle, Hallerauer?), corn cereal, salty white bread, grass, hay, maybe cloves, floral and clean grain. (Taste - 3.75)
Light body. Thin texture. Lively-to-fizzy carbonation. Long, spicy finish. (Feel - 3.75)
Just a very good Czech Pilsner. One of the spicier ones I’ve had though. (Overall - 3.75)

Slightly lemony, slightly sweet, straw malt aroma. Clear, very pale, with an icy white head. Entertaining label on a standard brown longneck. Very clean and mellow. Slightly mineral, subtle hops, dry. Maybe not as crisp as I’d like it to be. Body is sturdy enough, with hops coming to prominence in the finish. ABC Liquors, Betton. PorterPounder (8091) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Slight haze to the light golden pour. Grainy aroma, hint of butter. Flavor has some honey sweetness, some graininess, a bit of a buttery back end and a sharp hoppy bite in the finish. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Solid pils. Capa (3325) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Clear yellow with a white hat. A hint of bright fruit over this mildly floral and grain filled pils. It has a soft finish where I usually look for a crisper end. Refreshing and simple. Very enjoyable.
