As part of a sampler tray during my visit to Bellingham Not a favorite style of mine, but clear light straw colored with a modest bright white head. Tell-tale saaz hops aroma and the crisp bite of the pilsner style is nailed. Good representative of the beer genesis.
Golden. Nice crisp noble hops. Medium thin body. Slightly sweet with a lingering crisp bite. Very good. thorongil2 (2995) - , Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2016 (tap) clear bright yellow colour with a small white head, faint aroma of noble hops, balanced flavour with a long light bitter finish mrjez (607) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 10, 2016
Keg at backyard bbq. Nice malty aroma with grassy hop. Full bread and grain malt flavour with a touch of nice hop bitterness before it ends clean and dry. Refreshing and solid for a couple of pints. luttonm (6154) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2016

Tap outside of Seattle. Pint glass. Light gold with good carbonation, medium white head and good lacing. Zesty, fruity, floral nose. Light citrus taste, light hop, nice mouthfeel. Pleasant and really good for this style. ClarkVV (6637) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Draught at Walrus and Carpenter, 11/7/15.callmemickey (4542) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Clear, highly carbonated deep golden liquid supports a medium-sized white head with moderate to moderately-high retention.
Good burst of zesty, spicy and floral hop notes in the nose with a strong sweet hay-like character behind it. Clean, with no alcohol and good minerality. Not too heavy on the doughiness.
Moderately sweet, with a strong maltiness yielding plentiful, rich honey notes that are well-balanced by liberal hopping adding spicy herbs and such things as we know and love from the saaz hop. Very carbonated, but it’s not sharp or fizzy and keeps it very refreshing. No flaws and quite clean.
These guys just won Gold for their Kolsch at GABF, which, in my mind is one of the biggest accomplishments you can have in the beer world (a gold in kolsch or a light lager category). Those are tough styles to do competently, let alone on a gold medal level.
Clear golden body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Fairly grassy with some lemon zest and cracker. Light bodied with moderate to lively carbonation, light sweetness, clean finish. Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle sent to me by Prufrocksfar - thanks Chris!! Super clear yellow pour with a nice big white head. Earthy nose with a hint of cracker. Crisp taste, earthy spicy hop character with a strongly bitter finish. A classic Pilsner that’s been turned up a notch. Reminds me of many of the beers in Prague. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2015
