Bottle (Mellow Mushroom, Charleston SC, May 2015). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), moderately hoppy (honeysuckle flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Had bottles and draft samples of this in Raleigh NC the week before the Savannah/Charleston week of the trip, and this beer was just as impressive there too. Clean, great malty-hoppy balance, and pretty true to style as well. Great quaffer and enticing to sniff too. Could stand to be just a touch more bitter but I quibble about that for a number of Czech pils, and it’s hard to deny the lip-smacking malt character of this one. A solid pils that stood up to the test of repeated samples. Something I would buy in sixers at home if I could. Leafs93 (2293) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is grass, citrus and pepper. Taste is tart with a crisp finish. Light bodied. jsmerig (1578) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Pours a clear light yellow with a white head. Subtle aroma. Taste is light bready malt with a stiff bitterness of a classic pils.

I don’t usually expect much from a pilsner, but with a viking on the front I had to try it and I was pleasantly surprised. It has a light/medium body, a thick white head that stuck and a mild bitterness that gave it some character. A nice summer beer that I would drink again. ordybill (1738) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a nice malt and hop aroma
Appearance- pours a slightly murky light yellow color with a medium sized white head.
Taste- A well blended malt and hop flavor, this is a very good tasting pilsner.
Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a lively texture on the tongue.
Overall- A really good beer that I highly recommend.

On tap at RFD (Washington DC). Limpid golden body with average carbonation and a thin, white creamy head. Decent, well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with herbal hints. Its crisp, hoppy taste carries malty, herbal, and grainy notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Not bad at all. ads135 (4590) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 29, 2015
A pretty typical pils. Light with a straw color and a light grassy aroma. Surprisingly thick mouthfeel and a dense biscuity malt base. Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Draft at Cravings. Clear golden yellow with white head. Light malt nose. Crisp clean slightly sour finish... Nice Pilsner. Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Refreshing, balanced, and crisp are the adjectives to describe this one. It’s not the "top ranking" pilsner, but if you’re a fan of the style you’ll certainly appreciate this one. Aroma is nothing to write home about, but the flavor and finish is pretty nice. The malt is just lightly toasted and sacchariferious with just a wee herbal hop note that adds evenness. Nice job--btw, love your doughnuts Wintson-Salem. UNCCTF (578) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Growler. Pale yellow color with a white head that doesn’t last too long, but laces the glass a tad. Aroma and taste of straw with a good amount of hop for a pilsner. Finish was kind of sweet. For what it is, it’s pretty good - a nice easy-drinking beer for summer.
