This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy of unnoted size long lasting white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was hazy and yellow in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild dirty sock off smelling . Its mouth feel is initially tingly bubbly and off with a strange malty dirty sock finish. Its flavor contained malty dirty sock notes. Not one I would buy again. pineypower (3327) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2005
From notes: Pours out a decent light straw color wihth a decent sized frothy head. Typical hop aroma of a pils and a decent taste. About the middle of the road as far as a pils goes, slightly more bitter than it should have been steerpike (28) - Greenfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Light color, but atypically dark for a pilsner, which sometimes border on water-clear. Lightly fruity aroma. Overzealous foamy head tries to eat your face, even on a careful pour. Taste is overly metallic and sour. Pilsners are bitter as a rule, but this is a little too puckeringly bitter for a style that is supposed to be so light. Better than macro-swill, but not as elegant as premium pilsner. hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle. Medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting, decent lacing, carbonated, slightly hazy, and a yellow hue. Malty, hoppy and a sweaty sock aroma. Not very inticing. Bitter and hoppy flavor. Tingly, bitter, hoppy palate. Light-medium body.

Bottle: poured a big ol’ glass of white fluffy head. 4 fingers deep. Golden yellow body. Light hop aroma. Initial sip is metallic yet hoppy. Very carbonated. Light lemon with a flat finish. Decent. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Pours golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is hoppy with some lemon. The head laces the glass on the way down and the flavor is light and citrus. Very carbonated but it adds to the flavor for this style. Thin on the palate and a touch of sour and bitterness on the finish. This is another good summer lawnmower beer but other than that not much.

Bottle, from Julio’s. For best flavor drink before 02/26/05. Good scents, sourdough, lemon, little skunk, tad sweet, fruity thing...maybe apple. Clean yellowy golden color, big fluffy beige white head that stayed all the way, though I did drink it quickly. Bitter flavors, same as aromas witha tinny addition. Thinner body, watery mouthfeel, crisp bitterish finish. A good lawnmower, Though to be fair I’m not much of a pilsner guy. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2005
2005 bottle. Served in a lambic flute at about 45 degrees. Pale orange body, light peachy-apricot tones, lighter gold/yellow notes, clear. Medium-sized bubbles rise to the top to form a moderate amount of white head. Retention is fair. Aroma of earthy, fuzzy hosp, lots of grass and wet green leaves. A bit of sourish-mineral-like yeast and I do believe I detect a little fruitiness (which is pleasant but out of style). Perhaps some red apples and nectarines and tangerines. Flavor is quite dry, though there is a good pils malt honey flavor that adds a decent backbone. More mineral-like notes, soft, not-bitter hops are everywhere, with quite a crisp finish and some graininess lingering. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation. cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Overall, not a bad beer. Better than any macro pilseners you are going to find. It would be a great beer to try on somebody who is sworn to Bud or Miller or any of those other "Great American Beers." Nice clear golden color, with a decent sized (1/8 inch) head. Stayed foamy throughout the drink. Kind of bitter, kind of hoppy. I would drink this beer if they sold it at Fenway. (The only time to drink Pilseners is at a baseball game or after you have mowed the lawn).
