Not a pilsner fan first off, but this one was not too bad. Flavor was slightly hoppy as was the aroma. ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2006
Golden hay color, white head. Rather bland and not really that impressive. Taste is somehwat malty, a little hoppy, but all in all, this was the worst one on my sample tray. grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 3, 2006
I wasn’t expecting much from this beer and I was wrong...even though my score is 3.3. Clean golden straw colored beer. No head. Nose is more like a german pilsner than a Czech one. Lots of doughy subtle malt goodness with an apparent though unpronounced hop flower smell. Not skunky enough to be full on German though. Sugary light malts and cholorphyl-like green hops bitterness. Flavors dazzle. The malts are biscuit bready. Like a sugar cookie covered in hops. Well done with the malts. The sweet edge finishes quickly with a sharp yeasty tang that is lager-like clean with a millky edge. Hops undergird this tang and draw the beer into the finish. All in all a pilsner I would drink frequently. Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - FEB 21, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2007 A little thin for my taste. Maybe if this beer wasn’t filtered, or maybe we need a little more quality grain in the grist bill. Nice hop though, certainly claims Saaz. I think this is a wonderful way to get your buddy to put down the Miller, but I really want a little more backbone in the malt department. Well balanced and crisp.
To re-rate, this beer is very nice. I can’t for summer to show off the spicy hop flavor. This second tasting was done at the brewery, so maybe I ran into a dirty tapline earlier. freekyp (2363) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2016 On tap at Foothills brewpub. A solid Pilsner. More cereal malt character than most, and a nice grassy bready and lightly floral aroma. Bitterness is forward. Light bodied but flavorful and very clean.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden color with thin tan head. Hop nose is a bit more prominent than most pilsners, bu this brewpub seems to like the hops, so it fits. Crisp finish, slightly sweet. Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Draft at Asheville Pizza and beer as a guest - Orangey yellow, with a thin tan head. Spicy, savory aroma. Flavor is very Europoean, if you know what I mean. Very clean palate, with a hint of, I gonna call it pretzels. Some notes of pine in the finish. masedawg (156) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Clear, yellow beer with a small white head. Sort of sweet for a pilsner. Doesn’t leave much of a finish. I am not a huge fan. DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2005
At the brewery. Clear gold, medium white head. Light grassy aroma. Nice mouthfeel, but sweet malt flavors a little much for a Pilsner. Floral hops quite noticeable, leading to a basically dry finish, although with some lingering sweetness. Not quite as clean tasting as I prefer in a Pilsner.

On tap at the brew pub, the pilsner pours a clear, light gold with a bubbly head. Aroma of yeast and tastes of grassy hops, alcohol, and light bitter spices. Smooth, but definitely carbonated mouthfeel. I really liked this one.
