Draft. Clear golden color white head. Clean crisp aroma and peppery laste, light body. Good.

3.9
Cybercat (5896) - Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Can. Pours hazy straw yellow with a thick and frothy porcelain head. Aroma offers fresh malt, pear, and subtle hoppy tones. Flavor presents all of the above, only with more hops. Mouthfeel features firm body and good fizz, adding up to a superior pilsner. Write home about it on a postcard.

chinchill (5075) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2017
12 oz can at 2017 Aiken Bluegrass Festival. Good looking, proper aroma and a very nicely balanced flavor that is markedly bold for style. Get a postcard ... his is one to write home about.

theprof (1016) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Tap. Aroma lemon zest and bubble gum sugar. Pours pale gold with white top. Taste has light sweetness and medium bitterness . Light carbonation ensures a soft finish. True to the Pilsner style and so slightly away from my preferences.

3.5
djd07 (15106) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Can. Pours a clear yellow gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is citrus and grass. Medium body, grass, lemon zest, light bitterness, easy to drink, very good.

fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2017
A perfectly fine pilsner, hittting all the right notes you would expect for the style.

3.4
PorterPounder (8091) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Atlanta, Ga - Hop City Beer & Wine - Krog City Market - 12 oz can. Slight haze to the light golden pour, initial fluffy white head, fades quickly. Aroma has some honey sweet accents, a bit of a hoppy funky bite. Solid pils flavor, some grainy notes, a bit of honey sweetness, solid hop bite. Crisp mouthfeel.

DOB: ?

2015 BJCP Category: 2A International Pale Lager

AROMA: Mild overall with a light sweet grainy malt. Hint of corn and even a slight apple character (acceptable for the style). Very faint floral hop presence. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Banana yellow to gold hue; hazy body but CO2 bubbles plainly visible. Moderate white foam mostly dissipates. 2/3

FLAVOR: Grainy pale/blonde malt presence throughout. Not especially sweet, but clean and mild. Corn imparts a faint cereal character. Slight spicy hop bite and moderate bitterness at the apex and into the finish. Noticeable sour tang on the retreat, though aftertaste is clean. 14/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light bodied; high carbonation. Very crisp, but no carbonic bite. Refreshing while in the mouth and very sessionable at 4.7% ABV. Good beach beer. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Though not world class, I would definitely opt for this over most other examples of the style. 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 36/50

nearbeer (5463) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2016
12 oz. can pours a lightly foggy, gold with a mostly disappearing head. Pleasant, but mild nose of grass, light citrus zest and a touch of maize. Taste shows roasted corn, yeast, grass and mineral water. Near-medium bodied with low-medium carbonation and an OK balance.

jjsint (3218) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Keg at the brewery tap. Light yellow and clear. Lots of carbonation. Little bit of white head. Harsh grainy malt in the aroma. Tasty though: nice sweet taste with banana notes. Floral hop in the finish and aftertaste. Very well carbonated. Pretty good and grows on me.
