Very nice enjoyable pilsner. Just the right amount of hop flavor and bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 Bottle of Chosen Spot. Pale golden pour with a massive sticky white head. The nose is really great. Big, bright clean rye spiciness with a load of lemony, zesty Saaz hops. A bit of amarillo fruitiness and even a touch of mintiness as well. Very, very fragrant with all of the lemony spicy hoppiness. Lingering spicy bitterness on the finish. This beer is really damn good. A rock solid take on the pilsner style. I really enjoyed this.
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Crystal clear golden pour. Thick white head. Aroma is nice... light crackery malts with a soft herbal hoppy note. Fairly floral and fresh tasting. Soft hoppy bitterness with a lingering floral note. It’s definitely got enough hops to notice them in there. Moderate bitterness. Good balance. Nice and clean with a firm bitter finish. Nice summer quaffer.

Appearance: Delivered to me a light, clear, copper-hued body with a modest-sized, white head. Limited lacing on the way down.
Smell: Light maltiness embodied by a grainy, bready presence and rounded out with hints of caramel and piquant rye. Spicy-scented hops are simply whelming. A bit of time and warmth rouses a hint of buttery diacetyl on the nose and in the taste.
Taste: Lightly bready malts with an attention-grabbing snap of fresh rye grains. Lonely drip of lightly sweet caramel. Spicy, sparsely grassy hops with a small amount of bitterness. Little kick of diacetyl. Drying, loosely spicy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: CIMP presents a few tasty twists on the style without losing sight of the pilsner paradigm. Amply quaffable, says I! gschrade (1092) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2013
I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear gold with white head. Taste zesty hops, floral, slightly sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

22oz at Toad in the Hole. Gold with low but lasting head. Mild honey and malt aroma. Aggressive carbonation drives flavors of pils malt and sweet grapes. Sharp bitterness falls away quickly on the finish. Bigger body than its close competitors or its abv would indicate.

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Color was pale golden, almost like apple juice or dehydrated urine. About an inch of head. Healthy amount of lacing. Lots of film on the sides, which stayed throughout the pour.
Smelled of citrus and pine hops. Some light cereal malts in there, too, but citrus rules the day. A bit surprising for a pilsner.
Different taste than the nose, really a different taste than a pilsner. Watery, smooth start, which gave way to a very slight bitter finish.
Medium body. Texture ??? Lively carbonation. Smooth feel with a non-descript, but somehow decent finish.
I really liked this beer, especially after having the Albino Python first. Still didn’t taste like a pilsner to me, but a good beer. OscarFalls (52) - excelsior, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Pint from Fish in the West Village. Wicked hoppy for a pilsner. Drink with oysters.

On tap. Pours deep golden with fluffy, white head. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal hops, spices and pale malt nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long, dry and spicy. Excellent Pilz.
