Bottle at home from mchughs. Pours cloudy amber with wispy white head. Would prefer clear for a pils. Aroma is grass, bread, perfume floral hops. Flavour is orange, dusty malts with a mild bitter finish. Okay for style. probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 11, 2014
App.: Clear golden with a rocky, off-white head.
Aroma: Kinda fruity (berries), melanoidin-like maltiness, perfumed, grassy hops, floral, certainly a bit much for a Pils.
Palate: Medium body, relaxed carbonation.
Flav.: A bit of Pils grainy maltiness, still has a certain fruity, perfumed, floral character, reasonable grassy/green hops, not clean enough a Pils; dry with decent bitterness and a lightly perfumed/floral, grainy malt finish.
A bit too much going on for a Pils. Not too bad, just as a bber.
Aroma - honey, lemongrass, ceral bordering on bready. Appearance - hazy golden body, fluffy white head when agitated. Medium retention. Flavor - bready sweetness, sharp lemony hop bite, grassy and fruity round out the flavors. Palate - light bodied, crisp, medium carbonation. Overall - super drinkable, finish is crisp and clean, slightly citrusy too. A very good beer. MarcoDL (5467) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Golden beer, small head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is grainy, with some nice fruity hops and a note of banana. Tasty, especially for a pilsner. Still, the body is too thin. Low fermentation has its limits. loubar (157) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 5, 2014
There’s a lot going on with the various flavors in this brew. Lightly toasted with subtle, sweet pilsner malts and creamy yeast on a lightly bitter earthy hop overtone with some some fresh milled grains in there as well. It ends more hoppy than the nose initially indicates. A little floral and earthy with a bit of bitter citrus peel thrown in. All in all, great drink-ability and very well done.

Banana aroma flavour apa like pilsener. Fruity fresh does not look pilsner cloudy. But nicetightslice (1523) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014

Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is corn, cereal grains, slight honey and sweet grass. Taste is moderately sweet with a crisp, zesty and bitter finish. B+. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle: Translucent sunburst with hazy golden edges, capped off with a bubbly, semi-soapy bone white froth that leaves some nice lacing as it quickly settles. Aroma of crisp bread, lightly toasted with slightly sweet pilsner malts, biscuits, creamy yeast, & a lightly bitter earthy hop overtone. Some fresh milled grains, too. Flavor is more hoppy than the nose initially leads on. Somewhat floral, earthy, & even with a bit of bitter citrus peel out of the gate. Still has that nice pilsner malt base with notes of biscuit, lightly toasted bread, & husky cereal grains. Faintest hint of DMS & a nice mouthful of yeast with a hint of white pepper earthiness in a mostly hop forward finish. Finishes mostly clean, a touch dry, & modestly bitter. jcr (2784) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy, golden body. Frothy, white head, diminishing. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, light resin, grass, raw grain, bread. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. On the edge of being a pale ale — a pilsener with citrus flavors. A bit heavy for a pils, but pleasant enough despite hints of raw grain. ansalon (4219) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2014
SWBF 2014. Pours a semi-clear orange with a low white head. Aromas of citrus, elderflower, yuzu, funk and lemongrass. Taste is a bit sour in a very nice way with some elderflower and lemongrass as well with some lemon zest. Mouthfeel is thin with medium carbonation.
