Not a bad pilsner here. Some corn notes, some grassy notes, and lightly grainy. No "off" flavors. Simple and sessionalbe pils. Thanks to lithy for this one! JStax (7307) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2010
On tap at brewery. Gold appearance. Thin white head. Faint aroma. Smooth body. Okay. Nothing special. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Tap @ Church - a forgettable lager. Golden yellow, a bit astringent and piney. Hay, grass and lagery notes. After the coconut stout, unremarkable. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2010
On tap at Church on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Soft hay and light crackers, little bit empty. Clean and softly sweet, a bit of grain. Touch sweet on the finish, crackery and grainy crisp bitterness. alobar (3966) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Clear straw yellow color with no head. Aroma of grain, grass, and some hops. Smooth with a malt flavor and a slight hop ending.

A- Nice German lager appearance. Clear straw yellow body with thick foamy white head. Head fades to 1/2 finger and leaves behind little lacing in the glass.
S- Pale malt with a refreshing hop balance.
T- Suprisingly sweet. A good balance of pale malt and caramel malt upfront. Refreshing mild bitter hop finish. Sweet caramel malt lingers. Tastes more to me like a Munich Helles than a German Pilsner. The malt is stronger than the hops but it is a nice light taste.
P- Low carbonation and light body. Smooth and creamy. Goes down easy.
O- Nice drinkable German lager. Something that I enjoyed and will have again. This is a great offering on tap.

Pours a pale gold color with a very thin white head. Aroma is barely there, but is of both hops and some malt. Flavor is grassy with some hops. A very crisp clear beer with very little flavor. Would probably make a nice session beer. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottled. Golden pour with pretty much no head. Aroma is muddy, band-aid, radish, a little lime. None of the hallmarks of a German pils, as the label claims. Crisp body, a bit clammy, surprisingly thick for 4.1% pale. Easy drinking at least. dolemike1 (1289) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle: Slightly skunky grassy aroma with a lttle hint of malt to redeem itself. Flavor was ... ehh... a bit of malt, with a lot more of the grassy notes in the finish. Not a favorite. Acetobacter (815) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Enjoyed via draft in a pub glass. The beer pours a straw-colored to medium golden hue, with a medium white head. Carbonation is accurate for the style, and markedly less than the American and European standard and premium lagers. The nose is rather slight, but does give a nice hint of German character malts, with a nice nod to Munich malt, in particular. The palate is a touch thin, but not out of character, for the style. Malt character up front: pils, Munich, and perhaps a touch of Vienna, before a nice, firm bitterness via continental hops. The finish is clean, slightly bitter, and semi-dry. Overall, this is a well-made example of the style. It is truly a shame that so many ratebeerians do not have a full comprehension of the BJCP style guidelines, and rate beers soley on their alcohol content, their IBUs, or whether they have been aged in oak.
