A simple yet satisfying pilsner with some malt flavor and medium hop character. The distinctive characteristic is the flowery, medium hop bouquet and flavor from Czech "noble" hops. It also has a dry finish from a more thorough fermentation and additional cold lagering. Light gold to medium gold in color. A nice crisp, smooth finishing lager with no fruitiness or esters.

Standing 8 pilsner 4.9%- it is a medium gold, man they make lots of golden beers, with a thick head of foam that leaves great lacing costing the glass. Slightly more floral than the helles with less malt character but dn near identical. The palate is a bit rougher than the helles, more earthy & more floral in terms of hops with a semi-dry finish. Middle of the road. It doesnt gel for me. Once warm it got rough. Nice enough but I preferred the helles.

Grassy hops and a touch of floral. The grainess really jumps out. Light refreshing excellent bitterness. Hell yeah, this is what I want to drink when it is 38 degrees , 99% humidity in early July. Great summer beer. Dry grassy finish - probably gets a couple extra points for matching the weather so well.

Clear gold, small head, great lacing. Appearance and palate more like a hand pump than a keg beer. Hoppy nose, light malts; flavor matches. Not as hoppy as I expected from the description. This batch was lower alcohol than usual and lower than menu description; appearance was slightly different from that of the other raters as well. Mine was not hopped to the point where I would have confused it with anything but a pils.
