A legend tells it... Rumpelstiltzkin spun straw into gold. Rumpelpilsen spins malt and hops into a liquid gold creating a brew of mythological proportions.

Transfer from BA review on 5-13-13-

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden-yellow color with a one finger white head. The head persists fairly well, leaving an only very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is of a grainy malt and some aromas of a light caramel smell. Mixed with these smells are some aromas of a lemon and grassy nature.

Taste – The taste begins on the drier and breadier maltines side with a light level of caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances some lighter grassy and herbal flavors come to the tongue while a light citrus hop comes as well. In the end, a little bit of a skunky flavor and some flavors of more malty and herbal nature come to the tongue to produce and leave a crisper taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was on the lighter side with a carbonation level that was rather average. Appropriate for the style as it made for a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – Nothing too special here. Decent but nothing too great.

Clear gold pour with no head. Aroma is slightly skunked (somehow), pretzel malts. Flavor is crisp, malty. Fizzy mouth feel. Surprisingly unoffensive

Sweet aroma, taste is is similar to aroma...too sweet. Hop finish at the end slides in with barely being noticed. Below average pils. Similar presentation to Oscar blues.

12oz bottle: This one pours a slightly hazy, straw yellow color. There was a HUGE white head on it. The aroma is OK, and a little light. A bit of malts, grassy hops, lemon and a faint hint of spices. The taste is good. Notes of the lemon, malts and spices. Very little (almost none) bitterness to it. A pilsener should have a bit more than this one. Still a good beer overall.

In bottle on Sanibel island. Trying to give a little slack since I was very hungry when I true this but it was as skunky a pilsner as I have had. Will give one more shot but pretty awful round one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

i realize a pilsner is supposed to be somewhat hoppy, but this was too much for me. not a fan.

Light straw-yellow body, thin white head, minimal lacing. Fruity with some grassy hops. Medium bodied, too sweet, no bitterness. Lacking pilsener character.

Pale yellow color resembles a wit. Smell of some banana, not overly strong. Bland flavor with nice palate.

Clear golden amber, nice head cover and streaks of lace. The aroma is more bracing than the taste - caramel malt offset by light hop bitters. Really simple, but quite drinkable. Recommended.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head. A nice rich grainy nose of Pils malt and some hay. The flavor is very crisp and clean with really rich flavors of Pils malt, honey and bread. Really nice.
