Wittales (762) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Appearance was clear yellow with white creamy tight 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are simple corn, lemon and pale malt sweetness. Taste are lemon upfront with Pilsner malt sweetness in mid sip. Corn and mineral crisp slightly drying finish. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with light body, then a smooth balanced traditional German pils finish. Overall an easy drinking Pils that’s a good law mover brew.

Aroma is somewhat grassy and crisp with a pale and mild aura of hops. Taste is sweet and light fruity with a hint of faint citrus, light minerals shine through. Pleasant aftertaste and the soft carbonation provides it with the stamp "OK Pils" lukin (621) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
bottle. yellow and fizzy. Grassy and slightly metallic, with a sharp aftertaste. Not terribly good. Bosco (316) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Very light, almost clear yellow with commercial style fizzy head that dissipates almost as quick.
A little bitter smack up front followed by a strong metallic taste.

T: Follows the nose with some grains up front and an odd lingering bitterness.
P: Medium body with decent carbonation.
O: Lacks the clean and crispness of a great pils.

Drab and lifeless pour with little, if any, head. This is an interesting Pilsner. It is very light-bodied-- and its presentation is certainly week-- but the flavor is surprisingly rich for such a weak bodied brew. Noble hops top off the finish, and the appropriate lingering bitterness is present. However, sometimes there is a slightly metallic or the noticeable presence of alcohol slipping into the finish. That is indeed rare for a pilsner, but at 5.5% this is not your everyday German style pils. Light and enjoyable, I would put this in my top 10 favorite (towards the bottom) American craft brew pils. The brewers’ note on the bottle label is especially important (I’m paraphrasing): "a Pils is a true testament to a brewer’s expertise." So true. I’m gald to see those in the industry get it.

Bottled, golden brown. Bold fruit hops with a roasty malt after taste. Pretty good Pilsner. maekchu (3847) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Light grassy nose, pale malt. Light lemony yellow color, thin filmy head. Gentle malty sweet initial, grain, light mineral or metallic note, small bitter finish. Thin body. Fairly run-of-the mill stuff. Okay. tillmac62 (728) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2015
BBD 10/11/15. Clear golden pour. Outstanding head volume and lacing, normal retention.
Nose of lager yeast, lemongrass and a touch of noble hops.
Almost medium body with a texture so smooth it approaches light creamy. Above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a finish that has a nice burst.
The outstanding flavor profile is intense, slightly complex and very well balanced. It begins with a blend of light hop flavor that yields to an ascending biscuit sweetness. This sweetness is, however, overtaken by a mild bitterness in the middle. The bitterness is of the noble hop family in terms of flavor. As the bitterness fades, biscuit comes to the forefront and provides balance. The finish is almost crisp and leaves you with a nice lemongrass flavor over a mild bitterness.

Rated based on notes taken 21 July 2012 -- A pretty good pilsner. Good malts, good balance.
