One of the closest tasting American beers to a good German pilsner that I have experienced. Nice appearance, a bit darker than expected, crisp flavor and very drinkable. One would be happy drinking this in Bavaria. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gripweed57 (2728) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2017
From old tasting notes. Hazy amber gold color. Small bubbles cascade to a rocky white head. Earthy, grainy malt aroma. Mildly sweet malt flavor upfront. Good subtle spicy hop flavor surfaces in finish. Complex and drinkable.

12floz bottle (BOD: 02.20.2017, $2) poured into a pint glass. This is simple beer, and that is fine as it is perfectly clean and crisp. Light in body and color, and possesses a mild cardboard aroma that transcends to a lightly grainy white bread flavor. These are all good things for a pale lager.

teamsale (282) - Washington, USA - APR 23, 2017
Bottle pours a clear gold with a one finger eggshell head and light lacing. Aroma is a very light floral and rust. Taste is a crisp, clean barley. Bitterness is mild and aftertaste is light but lingering.

PugUglyBrewer (742) - - APR 22, 2017
Clear liquid gold color with a creamy head of white foam. Light florals, dry biscuit, and spicy/zesty hops lend way toward a clean and crisply refreshing pilsener.

3.4
willisread (3472) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Tap at J’s. Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Light, grainy nose with some lemon and faint malt aromas. Clean and crisp. Well-rounded and balanced mouthfeel. Simple but well done!

handmuffin (40) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Served from bottle at home into glass at 43 degrees. Bottled on 11/01/16. Pours pale gold in color with thin white head. Aroma of mild malt and herbal hops, reminiscent of Pilsner Urquell. Medium body and mild carbonation. Somewhat subdued cereal and hoppy flavors.

3.2
sinfull (1728) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Clear, golden color. Medium-sized, white head. Malt , hay and some hoppy notes in aroma. Sweet, malty taste with light bitterness at the end. Good beer, but lacks crispness of German pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.6
BeerViking (4954) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle, pours deep gold and gassy, though with a fast-settling head. Golden malt and a little sweetcorn on the nose, some dry-grassy hoppiness but over a faintly cloying body. Not really bitter or crisp enough to be quality German Pils, and a little too sweet - more like a German macro.
