Appearance: Pours a clear, darkish gold body with a tall, airy, white head. Fairly good head retention.
Smell: Scantly grainy accent to the pilsner malt with a sweetish cereal hint to it. Lightly spicy, lightly herbaceous hop character.
Taste: Pils malt with touches of cereal sweetness and (light) graininess. Very soft citrus, bits of hopsice and dried herb from the noble hops. Medium-light bitterness. Gradually, gently drying on the back half and into the crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus, active carbonation.
Overall: Over the years, I’ve never really found a Mendocino that hit the spot, but this pilsner is quite good. A nice surprise.
I like that the Czech style lager seems to be gaining popularity in the States. Dry, malty, with a great earthy, grassy aroma. jandd1983 (4330) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle thanks to Hayduke. It poured an amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of grains, some nuts and citrus. The taste was of citrus, malts and some hops. Nice. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2013

12oz bottle - pours clear gold with effervescence, white head and decent lacing. Nose is floral and a little grainy. Flavor adds malty backbone. Refreshing. Moderately bitter. Finally a pilsner I like.

Bottle from KNB: Big bold aroma of grains, cereal, oats and grass that smelled better than most other pils. Appeared a golden liquid topped with a fluffy foam head. Some evidence of floaties are seen from the bottle. Drink is crisp and taste like a full-bodied pilsner because of the quality usage of malts to hop. One of the better pilsners I know of coming out of California or from the U.S. for that matter. Foxbush (2028) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2016
12 oz bottle from the AOPD monthly beers The pilsner poured a clear amber with an of white head and lacing. Avery attractive beer in a glass. The aroma of caramel malts and bready notes are detected. The taste of had more bread, floral hops and hints of spices. The pilsner has a medium body with soft carbonation. The finish was clean and slightly sweet. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - AUG 19, 2014
A clear golden body with a fast fading white head. Toasted malts and a bit of fruit in the aroma. A slight bit of corn. Flavor had a nice toasted malt presence. Corn notes were present but not offensive or negative in anyway. Some mild sweetness. A nice smooth drink.

12oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow, stiffish white head. Aroma is mostly malt sweet, taste is sweet, overall not that good a pilsenere, a bit more like a macro crap imo.
