Bottle. Pours clear gold with a awesome soapy white head that slowly fades to a sticky lacing and film. Aroma is grass malt and earthy hops. Taste is subtle citrus and lemongrass grain and malt with a nice bitterness of hops throughout. Palate is thin with a fizzy dry finish. Awesome summer brew. fidelis83 (2535) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Clear gold pour with a 3 finger, soapy, bright white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is cereal, toast, light grainy sweetness, mineral notes, grassy, spicy, floral and light pine hops. Flavor is more toast, and cereal grain up front, some mineral and bready yeast, nice hop profile, complex and tasty, while still being complex, lots of floral notes, some spicy, a little grass (in a good way), light hints of grapefruit and pine and a nice toasty, lightly honey and malt sweetened hoppy, lightly bitter finish. Light body, with a nicely full, creamy entry, moderate strength, spritzy, but not too sharp carbonation and lightly dry, pleasantly crisp finish. Very tasty, refreshing, yet complex Pils. theisti (4237) - Kansas, USA - NOV 13, 2012
12 oz bottle purchased as part of a mix a six at Festival in Onalaska, Wisconsin. No date markings on the bottle. The pour is a clear golden yellow with a frothy one inch white head. The aroma is soft natural hay, lemon citrus, floral, straw, and a pleasant cracker malt. Fresh and clean. The taste is the nose, clean cracker malt with straw and a nice dose of the lemon citrus floral. Nice blended character of the German hops. A touch of earthy mineral here as well. The palate is light bodied, active bright carbonation, dry mineral light bitter hop finish. Really nice take on a classic German style Pils. Right up my alley.

12 ounce bottle thanks to cbfobes. Thanks! Pours a lighter copper color with a white head of loosely packed foam. The aroma is floral and grassy, with an almost nutty character hidden beneath the pilsnery sweetness. The taste has a nice fruity sweetness with the dry grassyness of the german hops wrapping the beer up with great precision. This is one delicious pilsener. Thanks again, Brandon! argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2012

Big fluffy head, great lacing. Slight hops nose. Nice balanced beer with good hops some sweetness and slight dry bitter finish. Tasty Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 13, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2007 My previous rating really shows how much I’ve learned about beer. None the less this is a damn tasty brew. Easy to drink, "a boring beer made very well" as one of my friends put it... iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2007
12oz, 2007. Dan Carey told me this was his favorite easy drinking beer he made. Pours a clear golden with a one finger white head that fades to a film. Aroma of grassy and spicy hops, though the grass is dominant. There are some biscuits and some light fruitiness. Flavor adds a lemony orangey character, and I don’t think it’s the same type of fruitiness I got in the aroma. Grassy and spicy hops are back stronger in the flavor, though the grass in dominant. Grain and biscuits make up the backbone. Not a lot of bitterness here. Moderate creamy carbonation with a light to medium body. Very good and very refreshing.

Pours a clear golden color with a good sized white head that fades quickly. Slight lacing as the beer retracts in my glass. Aroma is of grass, light fruit and honey notes and some hop spiciness. Taste is grass, malt, light fruit, biscuit, and some light toasted grain. Perfectly carbonated with some slight dryness, this is a top notch pilsener.
