yellow gold clear pour, fizzy head. Very malty pilsner, lots of caramel banana notes, a little herbal and citrus but balanced. Thought it was a little flat at first but flavor is just as complex, lots of sweet sugar at the front, and dry citrus earthy notes at the finish. I like the description the mouth feel as a juice, almost appley, but lots of bubbles. Pretty nice pils Jblauvs (1358) - Chester, Vermont, USA - AUG 26, 2009
golden pour with fizzy head. Grassy hops and toasted malt in the nose. Sweet sweet toasty malts in the mouth with some sweet grass hops and some lemon zest. Pretty refreshing and pleasant. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Earthy malt aroma. Grassy, leafy hops. Pale malt aromas with herbal notes. Very forest-like overall.
Ultra-clear straw yellow color. Huge champagne bubbles. Retention of this big, white head is great. BIg gobs of lace.
The flavor is earthy (ie. dirt) malt taste; grainy. Bitter, grassy Euro hops. A real bitter, herbal finish. Some medicinal, slightly astringent/sour qualities.
Creamy feel like juice, but fizzy and bubbly. Has a distinctive bite at the swallow. Makes it a nice sipper. Strong: a bitter "pils" to swallow. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2009

8/13/2009: Harpoon Leviathan Big Bohemian Pilsner... Aroma: Lemony citrus hoppines, light malt. Appearance: Golden (slightly pale), very clean and clear, small white head. Flavor: Pine, spruce and resin, a bit light, good balance with the bright maltiness, alcohol completely missing from the flavor. Palate: Medium light, a bit sharp but acceptable for the style. Overall: I like it. I like it quite a bit actually! This is a really well-done Pils!
12 fl. oz. bottle (Alc/Vol 6%) shared by metmayhem. Thanks ! Rating #54 for this beer.
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear golden with a large frothy white head that leaves behind good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is caramel malt and bubblegum. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter floral hop taste and nice bitter finish. Alcohol present but not overpowering. A very good strong lager from harpoon.

Nice drinkable beer. BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2009 Alcohol not too well hidden. A lot of straw, some floral to grassy hops throughout. Bready with a sweet maltness. Apple juice color with a thin film head. Minimal lacing. If your looking to get drunk, and in the mood for a pils, this is right up your alley.. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Clear straw color with a tallish popcorn colored head. Decent lace. Appearance = 3+. Pale malt, dough and floral to grassy hops aromas. As it sets for a minute, I have a real pils aroma, malt and hops mix with just a hint of herbal and nobel hops. I am not catching the alcohol and grain I find in many of ESLs. Soft malt and caramel flavors. Floral hops with light orange blossom honey join in the middle. Quite crisp in feel for the heft. Finish is also quite crisp. I catch a bit of apple peel in the linger along with some salty popcorn. An outstanding malt liquor. A very good strong lager with pils tendencies. The finish starts to wear on the palate as it warms. About 10 ounces would have been perfect. Maverick34 (3239) - New York, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Pours a cloudier gold. Taste is very sweet for a Pilsner. Almost more of a saison or something or even a bock. Well done, i just wish they didn’t call it pilsner. jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Draft at Taco Mac. Pours cloudy amber brown with a thin white head. The aroma is pungent and awesome - loads and loads of caramel, malts, soft esters (hints of bubble gum). It has a tasty, deep malty flavor with a soft, spicy bitterness in the finish. Very full-bodied. Overall - surprisingly delicious.
