On tap at the brewery, Asheville NC, 7 July 2006. Very pale colour. Clean and fresh (so it should be having had to travel all of 5 yards to the tap). Not a lot to it but entirely fit for purpose.

Very Crisp, and a bracing hop bitterness to start. Nice bitterness throughout, actually. It lacks the softness one usually finds in European Pilsners, but still and interestin interpretation of the style.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 Clean. Light yeasty aroma. Very true to style. A little tangy, crisp, hoppy and biscuity. Very slightly astringent. Clear light gold, clingy head, nice tap label. A very good pairing for food. Long bitterish aftertaste. Medium light body. Nothing too intricate, but nice. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2008
From draught sample at French Broad. Beany aroma with light grainy malt and some grassy light hop character. Light golden-straw clear with no head. Medium light body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with light pilsner malt, beany, with light crisp hops in the finish. Fairly clean but not a crisp after, a bit muted and lengthy on the tongue.

On tap at Panzanella in Carrboro. Pour is light golden with very little head. Nose is crisp, dirty hops, a little earwax too. Crisp, refreshing flavor, with some more dirty, spicy hops. Fairly bland, but not offensive. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2007
On tap at Porter’s, Raleigh. A fine looking pilsner with a fairly robust nose but too little in the way of hop character in the body. Fine sessionable brew, but compares poorly to Foothills. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Draught at Fishmonger’s Seafood Market & Restaurant in Durham, NC. Clear straw color with big creamy white head. Nose is of honey, butter, and sprucy hops. Dry and slightly bitter with a hint of honey and grain. Very crisp and appropriately carbonated for a pilsner. Very good for style.
