The beer poured a pale yellow color w/ thin head and thin lasting lacing. The aroma had light fruit, slight citrus notes, and a hint of flowers. The flavor had grapes, citrus, and light fermented fruit. The mouthfeel was light and thin.

Since I have not had many pilseners I am not one to comment on its ranking with regard to its style, but merely with regard to my personal liking for the beer. The pour is pale yellow...pretty boring as far as appearance. Aroma of wheat and slight hops. Flavor is really bread-ish. I could drink it, but there are lots of other things that I would rather have.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2016 Thanks to TannerTavernBoys for this one! Medium gold, good head, nice. Aroma was slightly bready with a bit of floral. Flavor matched, good malt backbone, lots of whole wheat bread, and a subtle but definite floral hop finish. Very nice stuff. RERATE: Original rating was 7,4,7,4,17. This one was a fresh draft at RVC. Basic notes the same, but a bit heavier body than I had expected, and had a hint of citrus in the hops as well that I wasn’t expecting. Somehow striking me as if an IPA was influencing it in some way. Knocking it back a couple of points.

Pours yellow with a white head. Very faint wheat aroma. Almost nothing in the flavor until the end, where there is a hoppy aftertaste. Yawn.

Pour is a dull yellow with a white head. Aroma is almost non-existant. Flavor is more malty than hoppy and i agree with most reviews here that this is fairly average.

Fairly nice looking pilsner, golden in color with a snow white head, haed retention is pretty good, head slowly fades into a soapy film. Not much flavor going on, slight maltiness, not terribly hoppy, a fairly weak offering. Never trust a coloradan to do a Midwes german’s job

Pours very light gold with medium tight head. Smells of light hops. A very tasteless beer, very little vegatation and malt flavors. Boring for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours translucent pale golden, large foamy white head, sticky lacing, with lively carbonation. Looks mighty fine. Pale malt & grassy nose. Soft palate, smooth, with a mild malt flavor. Medium bodied. Finishes with lingering malts and grass. Slight sharpness just at the finish, but it quickly subsides. Solid, clean brew, albeit somewhat average. Decent offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear golden body with a fizzy, bubbly head. Slight lacing on the glass. Aromas reminded me of a fresh cut field of hay. Clean flavors. Notes of sourdough-like malt and crispy hops. Contrary to the ratings before me, I really liked this. I found it to be way more balanced thatn other American pilsners I’ve had lately from breweries like Dominion and Victory, which leaned a bit to the hoppy side.
