Bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a spotty-lacing coating of white head. Has an authentic pilsner nose with some fresh grassy saaz hoppiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and light malty sweetness with a crisp floral saaz hoppy balance before a drier bittersweet finish. Well done and true to style. wlajwl (7010) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Hoppiness isn’t overpowering in taste, the alcohol gives it a slightly effervescent taste. Overall, a pretty good strong lager. ajnepple (6979) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2013
On tap at Breckenridge Brewery & BBQ. Gold and clear with a white head. Pilsner malts, pale malts, noble hops and light fruit. Medium body with a crisp, clean feel. Medium bitterness and light sweetness with a smooth finish. It was OK. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Clear golden color with fleeting head. Peppery, dry pils malt, spicy dry aromas. medium body with soft co2. Nice bready, grainy pils malt flavors with light berry fruits, spicy hoppage--good. Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle. Poured with the simple visuals of an any day pilsner. Almost no head. The aroma, however, is HUGE! The beer drinks with a definite kick, rich with full-on malt and near-distillery-strength alcohol vapors. Very nice. (#4061, 1/23/2011)

Whole Foods Market, DC sixer ($16): For this price, I got to say that this beer was sadly not worth it. Pours a golden color with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is of grassy and floral hops. Taste is a little sweet and the alcohol is very much noticeable, especially as it warms up. Not the most pleasant beer to drink and I have certainly had better iterations of this style.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of grass, malt, and grain. Taste is grassy hops, malt, citrus, and spice. Refreshing. Patrickctenchi (6692) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours hazy yellow-orange with a small, off-white head.
Scent is malt, orange hops, florals...a little lemon.
Taste is slightly sweet....with bread, toffee, fruits.
Slight hint of alcohol bitter alongside the increasing hop finish.
Not bad, jst a little plain. ben4321 (6676) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2012

Aroma: The nose has a clean grassy smell, with caramel, some bread, and a little bit of fruit
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a small white head and light lacing
Flavor: The taste has a nice malt sweetness, a crisp grassy hop flavor, and just a hint of booze
Palate: The body is fairly clean and crisp, there’s a hint of heat, and it has a lingering dryness to it
I liked this one. There’s a little bit of heat from the booze that I could see being an issue, but that didn’t overpower the nice crisp Pilner feel for me at all. The grassy hops, the fruity notes, and the malts all worked well, and the beer felt like it achieved the style it was going for.
This poured a pale yellow color with a white head. Aroam was of corn, grass and lots of alcohol. Flavor was sweet pale malt, alcohol and mild noble hops. Stop imperializing pilsners!
