3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 12 oz. bottle, packaged on 06/19/2012 and consumed just 8 days later, the same day it hit the Orlando market. The pour yields a mostly clear, medium golden body that’s strewn with micro-bubbles. A thin, off-white head is quick to dissipate, leaving just a thin edge. There’s not really any lace to speak of. Aromas are classic, fresh pils...showing an clean, crisp, lightly-toasted white bread malt base with hints of flaked corn. Fresh Noble hops are grassy and snappy. There’s a hint of creamy yeast as well, but alas, it comes across a bit too boozy. Flavors follow suit, pretty well balanced but warm, with a dry bready malt base, doughy yeast, and crisp, sharp, biting grass hops. The palate is medium bodied, smooth, and drying from the alcohol. Each sip begs the next for the first half of the glass, but then it gets a tad but laborious. Overall, it’s a damn nice pils without too many flaws, but it’s overly warm for my liking (5% would be much better, and yes, 1% makes a big difference in a pils). It’s a good backup for when Prima isn’t fresh.
Pours a hazy yellow straw color with a finger of fizzy white foam. Bready nose with hint of grass and lemon. Palate is focused with nice doughy backbone, touch of honey, lemon and a bitter grassy finish. HonusWagner (2218) - Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Totally solid german pils with the appropriate kinda sweet maltiness and a nice grassy hoppy character. Not as intensely hoppy as I expected. I would give this a higher rating but a few of the bottles in my sixer tasted practically ramcod. So on average quality it’s knockdown down a peg. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Homer321. It pours kinda hazy pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma has some pleasant breadiness and noble hop floral and spice. There’s also some background corn, apples and mandarin oranges. The flavor is a bit sweet and full bodied with more malt, corn and honey with a strong, spicy noble hop flavor and bitterness. Not bad, but I’m just not a fan of these high gravity Pilseners. MacBoost (1935) - Victor, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle from homer12345. Thanks, I guess. Pours even paler than bud light. Aromas of cooked veggies and creamed corn. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. The flavors are... Offensive. DMS, corn, wet paper. Fuck you. No. WanderinCelt87 (197) - Hamburg, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Pour from a bottle is a hazy pale yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is subtle and floral. Taste is a slight bitterness but smooth and not overpowering. Leaves a clean after taste.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of pale malts and some bread, some light hops, and more dough/toast. Flavor the same with a very nice maltiness for a pilsener. Average to lighter textrue. A nice beer of the style. bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Solid Pils. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with no head. Aroma wasn’t very strong. Hints of grass and hay and lager yeast. Taste was straw, lemon, corn, and hoppy. Nice and refreshing beer. Lighter body and carb. bconch (444) - - SEP 6, 2014
Yellow pour with little to no head. Grassy notes with some lemon aromas. Taste follows with a tart lemon finish. Another solid CCB brew. revolution2718 (379) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours very light yellow straw with head that goes away very quickly. Nose is cracker, lemon, fresh cut grass, noble hops. Taste matches nose, very grassy, lemon, crisp malt. I want a little more carbonation. It's ok, nothing special.

12 oz. bottle from Homer321 - thanks again, Sean! Pours a somewhat cloudy bright straw gold with a small white head that leaves a lasting ring and a little bit of film. Aroma of cracker, pale, cereal, and pils malts, corn, straw, grass, and a dash of lemon juice. Flavor of corn, cereal, straw, crackers, grass, and some mixed fruits. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a malty, corny, dry mouthfeel. Not quite the refreshing hoppy American craft pilseners I’ve been digging lately, but good in its own right.
