12 oz. can, split with the wife. Poured a cloudy pale straw with a one finger bubbly white head. Light biscuit/cracker aroma. Light, semi sweet taste with a light biscuit malt flavor profile. A little bit of grassy hops. Light bodied and dry. Not to shabby.

Very little head, if any, without a steep pour. Malty and an almost juice-like sweet backbone, with little up front hops. The label says German Pils....but this is more like the Czech variety. Somewhat raw, or green, type of strange bitterness. Maybe metallic. An easy drinker but too many flaws emerge while drinking it.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with no date shown anywhere. The short review is that I was not impressed. Cloudy yellow pour with a lingering modest white head. Busy carbonation. The aroma had this tobacco and stale malt quality to it and no hop profile that I could distinguish. The body was OK - in the medium range. The taste was like the aroma - a staler malty mish-mash that felt like it should have been sweeter than it really was. Not what I expect from a Pilsener.

12 oz bottle from Wegmans Ithaca. Clear yellow pour, thin white head. Lemon, bread, and a little grass. But I’d cleaning product. Mild sweet, light bitter. Light and easy drinking. Okay.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Poured into a pilsener glass, the appearance was a yellow transparent color with a finger’s worth of head that quickly settled to a film over top of the beer. Not much lace. Some carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. The aroma had some biscuits/breadiness up front over top of some grassy hops. Light hop spice. The flavor was moderately sweet with a brisk touch of grassy hops. Slight bready sort of aftertaste, but even that is a stretch as there really wasn’t much of any aftertaste, honestly. Finish had some prickly carbonation hitting, odd, but alright, I guess. The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed to prickle a little bit just like in the finish, but it didn’t indicate anything bad about the beer. Overall, for the most part, everything seemed pretty good about this pilsener, though I couldn’t really tell if it was a German or a Czech one. Perhaps a confusing one and still, I’d give this another shot.

DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Draft at taproom. Pours golden and clear with a half inch of white foam. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Has some solid grass notes on the nose. Clean and crisp on the tongue with a nice balance between the malt background and the grass notes. Finished clean.

Bebum (993) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2017 Clear, medium straw, tall, lasting head. Light body, smooth texture, faint taste, lean and refreshing mouthfeel with average carbonation and length, bitter finish. Dry, moderate bitterness and acidity, nice balance. Mild hop flavor, herbal, greens, bready but not yeasty background. Pleasant, refreshing but I’ve had better pils. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught@ Albion. Faintly cloudy pale yellow with small foamy white head, faint malt aroma, high carboation, lightly bitter crisp malty taste, abrupt finish. Good example of the genre.

Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2017
From draft flight at BIERmarkt USA on January 14, 2017. Yellow/gold color with good clarity, faint bittersweet nose, initial watery mouthfeel followed by bittersweet burst and sour finish, Balance could be better but this is a drinkable brew.

Pouring at TAP NY 2106. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, floral and fruit. Medium bodied, fruity, light hops. Clean and easy drinking, gentle hops on the finish.
