LilBeerDoctor (4193) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2009
On draft at ACBF09. Pours a clear light yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of wheat and light fruits. Flavor is sweet initially with a light wheat and bready finish. Very refreshing and a good pilsener! 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7.5)

Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
On tap. A few times around NC, but the best was at the Brewpub. Pours a nice golden with a lasting white head and some lace. Aroma is lightly nutty- good big doughy and fresh bready malts and a nice not too strong herbal and floral hop note. Hops get a bit spicier in the flavor which is nice to cut through the pilsner doughiness, and fresh bread- ok nice green hops, and awesome floral and herbal hop tones. Finishes crisp and clean. Super fresh- a couple other places the beer seemed a bit too creamy, less crisp and more doughy- wheat messy and other things going on with their tap lines. Fresh at the brewpub this was awesome!

Golden color at pour, slight aroma of pineapple and citrus. Decent for a pilsner.

A pretty dark gold pour for a pilsener, off white head. Malt, yeast, light citrus and pineapple aromas. Malt, lightly Biscuity with some citrus fruit flavors. Lively mouthfeel, just enough so. Clean malt and hop finish. The Victory Prima Pils is still my favorite from an American brewer, but this was pretty darn good as well.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a clear golden color. Aroma of pale malts and sweet floral hops. Slight peach-like fruit notes. Very bitter, grassy taste with subtle hints of green apple, grape and honey. Medium bodied.

tjthresh (1872) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours golden with white head. Noble hop nose but it tastes like soap. I didn’t give this one much of a chance after that.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Sample @ Foothills: Pours a pale yellow with a sweet and grassy aroma. My notes say that it smelled like ethanol, but, I’m pretty certain I don’t know what ethanol sounds like. Highly carbonated and a bit yeasty, this has a ton of malt in it. Not really my style.

Tap. Light gold in color with nice smell. Well balanced and not overpowering in any way. A pretty good beer to start my night.

KUEric (977) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2008
A nice pilsner. Had more flavor than your average pilsner. A nice pale look to it, not much on the nose, and not a ton on the flavor, but pilsners rarely are (except for grass and skunk when you get full flavor). There was some grass, but also some spicey notes, maybe some apples.
