Appearance: copper and gold under a voluminous white head which lines the inside of my glass with lacey fingers. A slow stream of bubbles keeps the head afloat in blotchy beauty. Swirls thick and full.

Nose: bread crusts, saltines, green grass, key lime. Brisk – dry then zesty, zesty then dry. Lemon zest. Tropical zip in the back – papaya and star fruit. Floral and herbal esters weave in and out. Dandelion and white flower petals.
Palate: sweetness along the edge leads into crisp, dry, bitterness. Papaya and banana skin. Greenness of flowers, stems and all. Key lime and sweet mown grass. Smooth mouthfeel and gently mouth-coating with subtle sweet grains. Pineapple, coconut, and star fruit. Tickle of spice in the back – grains of paradise.
Final Thoughts: delicious! I was worried the bottle was going to be a dud seeing as months had passed from when I bought the bottle to when I actually drank it. Thankfully the beer deities were friendly and the beer delightful. Another winner from Breckenridge.
Bottle. Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is malt, hops, and honey. Flavor is honey, malt, grain, hops, and fruit. It’s a bit astringent on the finish. Medium body. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2012
Clear, bright gold appearance with a small white head and decent lacing. Grassy aroma beneath the sweet malts. Grainy flavors, offset by summer fruit and followed by herbal and citrus hops. A hint of corn in the aftertaste limits the sensory pleasures on the palate. Overall, though, a more interesting, more complex pils then the run of the mill.

Perfect for what it is. A slightly hoppier version of a pilsner with a nice ABV boost. Hazier than a normal pils, but has a nice head and good clean taste and crisp maltiness. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle. Clear yellow, tall white foamy head. Slightly musty hop aroma, high carbonation, malt balance. Refreshing and a good overall pilsner.

Grainy aroma. Pours a golden amber with a small non-lasting white head, good lacing and lots of rising bubbles. Taste is malt forward (cereal) with a nice hopped bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this was ok, but not exactly the Pils taste I was expecting. Lowe1983 (1594) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Pours a cloudy, golden color with a white head. Aroma is of floral hops, citrus hops, and some caramel malts. Flavor is of caramel malts, some slight breadiness, and some citrus hops. Slight alcohol finish that isn’t too strong. jsmerig (1590) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Nice Malty and Hop aroma reminiscent of bohemian pilsner . Nice Malt backbone with a slight bitter offset and a clean crisp finish. The malt flavor seems a bit watered-down. Otherwise a fine sample. ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Clear light orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is lager-ish, kind of sweet malt with a bit of hop character. Flavor is sweet biscuit with a nice bitter bite. Good imperial pilsner. 7% is hidden nicely. Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - APR 6, 2012
Lots of bubbles in this clean yellow body. This brew was a tad metallic in the scent and taste. Sip after sip that dissipates, leaving a solid bready-malt character in which fruity esters come out as well. Very drinkable, only I wish the serving sizes were bigger.
