DrnkMcDermott (3025) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Draft at Millstream. $3.25 for pint. I had a taster of this at first while trying their doppelbock, but decided to chase it down with this. Very pale in a glass taster, but theres a little more color to be seen in the larger cup, even if it is white plastic. A thin layer of fizz instead of the bubbly head of a canned lager. Toasty malt smell with a side of peppery Noble hops. Taste: well, I still have some of the doppel stuck to my tongue, but this is darn hearty. Clearly a full grain beer with a light pils toast. Interesting that the ingredient list above shows no real surprises in specialty grains. Its hard to find a pils with any great complexity by definition, but then again, I can appreciate a beer with everything a light lager should have and no shortcuts or off tastes. On the unseasonably warm March day that I tasted this, the cup warmed up enough to let a bit of ester off the beer. Happy little burp at the finish.

12 ounce bottle from Brennans Market on University Avenue, Madison, served just out of the fridge in a Knig Pils glass. Moderate to large fluffy head decays slowly to a light haze atop the luminous pale gold body...fresh, light grassy aroma, earthy humus and faint pepper and honey...on the tongue, lightly sweet at first, slowly growing moderate bitterness which climaxes in a dryer, somewhat hard and mineralic finish...body is quite full, verging on too slick/syrupy but never getting there, carbonation soft and tingly. A very, very solid example of the style, in particular when considering the fine interplay of these lightly sweet pale malts and the dry herbal bitterness of the noble hops. Balance. Not quite outstanding but I have the feeling this bottle was not at its freshest - couldnt tell of course because even though theres a month-line on the side its unchecked. If youre going to date for freshness, go all the way and actually provide legible information!

Homer321 (4381) - Melboring, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle from Chicago visit. I think a family member just left this in my suitcase when I wasnt looking. Nose is strong in grass and faint cat pee character reminiscent of Victory Prima Pils. Lots of straw malt aroma. Lightly hazy pale gold with a small white head. Taste is more hop forward with a pleasant pepper quality to it. Actually a very enjoyable German style pils.

JPDIPSO (5796) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Straw color with a fluffy, wispy white head. Aromas of fresh cut weeds, sumac and just a hint of pale malt. Light citrus and pale malt flavors. Not a crisp clean hop profile. 12/12

On tap. Bright straw with good clarity. Thin white head that has minimal lacing. Biscuit and cereal malt flavor with a medium floral finish. Very well done and clean pilsner.

Solid pilsner with a light crisp taste. Its worth picking up a six pack and chilling.

Bottle. A- Corn, slightly sweet, subtle lemon. A- Yellow color, clear liquid, white head. T- Sweet corn, grains, subtle lemon. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- This one was pretty crisp and refreshing. A bit of hoppiness to it and a decent flavor. Not totally bland and boring.

Bottle courtesy of HuskerTan, thanks! Hazy pale straw color, bright thin white head. Aroma is very lemony. Taste is lightly bitter and peppery citrus. Decent.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains and bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes crisp and clean. Nicely done pilsner.

jmohno (1543) - Iowa, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Yellow light gold, creamy head, frothy lace. Aroma is soapy, like dawn or something, floral, light lemon, slight pepper. Some bready malt. Taste is some dry malt, light floral, light lemon, stale bread, fizzy but flat tasteing. Mild medium grass lemon finish. Lemony linger. Not bad. Decent, nothing to really complain about. Its summer its going down good.
