ON tap at Hamiltons. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Sweet fruity/malty aroma and taste with a good bready flavor and some honey notes. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 26, 2008
22oz bomber from SBD. Pours hazy golden yellow with minimal white head, tiny bit of lace. Smells grainy and malty and sweet. Tastes of very mellow, earthy hops up front and then sweet malts toward the finish, grain flavors as well. Medium body, nice active, yet smooth carbonation. If your in the mood for a pilsner, this is a quality one. enginaaron (73) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2008
As far as pilsners go, I thought this was pretty good, definitely worth drinking (which is saying a lot for a pilsner.) Has that very Lightning-typical yeast flavor and and a very smooth finish. Good flavor and a decent overall impression. Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - MAY 14, 2010

On tap at Hamilton’s. Light and awesome. Light hoppiness, with light sweetness. Bit of grassy in there. Hints of a lemony yeast. I’m suprised by the low scores. adrosson (148) - California, USA - APR 27, 2012
I liked this beer. Very much like urquell with maybe a bit of cloves. Towards the end of the bottle the hops took over and got a bit dry.

22oz bottle from my buddy paul in SD.....pours a golden hazy orange brown, almost IPA like, with a considerable white soapy head....interesting aroma of almost resembling a saison. citrus and sweet tropical fruit, mustiness, and a sweet tartish nose.... flavors aren’t as vibrant but some of the same notes are present, however dumbdowned. some added spice and yeastiiness as well. high in carbonation with a dry finish.

Light golden in color, clear with a thin white head. Nice Pilsner flavor and aroma. This was a clean easy drinking brew.
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is lemon and honey.
The taste is moderate lemon bitterness. A bit chewy.
The texture is softer.
