Cloudy golden with large white head. Sweet aroma with yeasty and caramel notes. Sweet flavour with hoppy and floral notes. Ends bitter. MiP (15650) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle. Refreshing citric aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. Small white head. Citric flavour, some yeast. Hint of cardboard and fruity aroma hops. stchloe (1017) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2008
One of the better Pilseners, uses traditional yeast but with malt and hops gives the ale some body and flavor. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Straw yellow-golden body with a small wispy head. Biscuit malt and funky pils nose. very nice example of the style. blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 25, 2006
This beer pours hazy straw-colored with a medium white head. Only decent retention and lace (like more in a pils).
Saaz aromas leap out on first sniff, but tragically disappear after a few minutes. I’ve had this problem before with GV - really nice aromas that only last a few minutes. The malts then develop in the nose.
Red Hills Pils is full-bodied and a little bitter for the style, with some hops in the finish as well. The main flavors are pale malts and a little bit of acidity. The first whiff was very promising, and the beer turned out to be very average.

On tap at Golden Valley Brewery. Pale yellow. Labatt with a slightly more complex flavour. Nothing more to say about it. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2006

This off reddish colored beer with a good nose was a great start finally. It was a easy to drink session beer and this was true so far for all Golden Valley brews. Crisp and had a slight bitterness this was becoming something. Good Job.

This would be another great beer that I could just drink constantly as a session beer. A rich take on the style, with a nice body that is just enough of all its components that you do not get bored drinking it. The only things that got me was a bit of a cheesy pepper bite that came up from time to time in the finish. Otherwise very light, crips and refrshing beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2005
On tap at the brewery. This was a nice crisp grassy pils. Pours a nice glowing straw gold with great clarity and a fizzy white head. Great hop presence giving it a very crisp and refreshing flavor and a medium dry finish. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pale gold, ring of head, film of lacing. Aroma of clean pale malt & grassy faint hops. Not as toasty as I like but clean, refreshing, but ultimately boring.
