On tap (2009) in a pint glass. Aroma is malty and the flavor is sweet malt with a grassy dryness that lingers. The body is a little much for me, but overall it’s a decent brew. Block (2700) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Light yellow-orange pour. Aroma is light, pale malts, grass and wheat. Flavor is equally light with citrus notes mixed with grass. Slightly skunky. Very drinkable. Light body. kassner (1657) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2010
On tap at Mad mex golden color cloudy and a bit sour and fruity like a Koelsh but with some zing and more hops. very refreshing and unique for a pilsner. Modest head and some lacoiung Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
This beer pours a chill hazed golden color. It has a tiny ring of head and some spotty lacing.
There is some strong malt coming through on the nose and a hoppy spiciness
The flavor is nice well balanced offering of various malts and hops. I am getting some light carmel. It does feel a little thin in some places.
It finishes with a little dryness and a hop bitterness that tends to linger around awhile. I would have to say more of a bold pil than most.This is the best beer I have had from these guys. Worth a shot for sure. Dfonorow (2216) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Pours a clear golden color with a decently sized bubbly white head. The head quickly fades and leaves good lacing. Aroma is of bready yeast and spicy hops, nothing else is really getting through. Flavor is of grass, hay, spices, and a touch of sweetness in the finish. Not bad, but not great.

$7.99 growler filled about 20 minutes ago from Brew York (inside Duane Reed on 72nd and Broadway). Clear medium amber (darker than what a pils should be) with a creamy one finger very light taupe, fading to a thick film within a minute or two. A small head does rouse, but fades just the same. Aroma of cracker malt and some toastiness as well, light fruity yeast. Flavor had some light fruity yeast along with some cracker bready malts, light honey sweetness. Minimal hay notes. Lightly sweet finish with bitterness peaking at a 2. Soft carbonation with a light to medium body. Not bad (or flawed) other than it not being a pils, A little bit of a letdown for me.

Golden straw in color, clear with a thin head. Nice malt aroma and flavor. Light hop flavor and dry finish. This was decent Pils. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2009
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma is dry and lightly bitter with some sweet and fruity hints. Flavor is a nice pils flavor. Dry and floral at the beginning with some hoppy bitterness, a smooth and lightly sweet middle, and a very lightly bitter and lingering finish. Nickls (2527) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap)
Light orangey gold color and poured with a generous frothy white cap. Some noticeable rising carbonation. Minerally and a little earthy; bit of grain; pretty muted actually. Clean, dry earthy hoppiness; just OK and nothing too oustanding in terms of hop presence or other character. Lightish; very dry which is great for the style and added to the refreshing qualities of the brew. Solid enough; the dry nature made up for some of its other lackings. Overall, not a terrible example, but just above average to me.

12oz bottle from Whole Foods, Durham. Ever open a beer without even the faintest hiss of carbonation? Me too. This one. Dark copper pour, basically looks like an amber lager rather than a pilsener. The nose is nice, fairly sharp and well hopped. The mouthfeel is obviously quite lacking, but the flavors - with some rye, spice, and nice peppery hops - are still detectable. I’d give this another shot, with the hope that some carbonation would yield better results.
