Bottle. Pours a light amber color, very clear. Moderate sized white head and some lacing left. Aroma is lightly sweet and toasty, a little bit of earthy hop presence also. Light bodied. Decent mix of malt and hop, slightly drying, not as crisp as I would have liked. Nice lingering hop presence in the finish. Decent.

Theres ind of a dusty, musty, slightly fruity nose emanating from this hazy yellow brew. If I want pils, I want hops, and this just isnt showing them. Instead, it evinces a thin, fruity flavor, which, though not altogether unpleasant, is not at all what I look for in "beer."

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2006 Thanks Chuck! Pours to a glowing gold body with a thin white head. The lacing slides right off the side of the glass. The aroma is strange. Biscuity and cheesecakey. Youll be surprised that it smells like that. Strong Tettnang hops. Did they use the Hallertauer as the bittering hop and the Tettnang as the aromatic? The flavor is a clrean, crisp aromatic hop with some nice refreshing malt. Light sourdough bread. Not bad, just not exciting. Seems to be decently made. The palate is medium-light and crisp and refreshing. 6, 3, 5, 3, 12 = 2.9

I thought I hadnt had this already, so I picked one up. It pours to a nice golden body. Thin white head. The aroma is dry, herbal, sourdough, cheesecake. The taste is biscuity and sourdough bread. Moderate palate. Not much different from what Im reading of my old rating. 6, 3, 6, 3, 12 = 3.0

wow...a pretty sweet tasting pleasant pilsner. Good for them. Pours out a nice gold color. What a badass shark fin with a whale in it.

Pours golden with a small white head that doesnt last long. North Coast makes an honest effort, but the end result is uninspiring. I find pilseners in general to be a lame style of beer, and while this rises above the average offering of the style, its not high enough to be remarkable. Moderately flavorful for the style. Crisp and lightly hoppy. Body is better than the average macro. Its just not what Im looking for in a beer. $7.99 for a six pack at Broudys, Orange Park, FL.

Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Deep golden color with white pillowy head. Crazy nose for the style: lots of biscuit malt, yeast, fruity hops, sweetness, and something very spicy and tea-like. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with full and rounded flavors of all of the above. Clean finish with a bit of a tea-like tannin quality to it. Not like any other pilsner Ive had, even the hoppier ones. I really enjoyed this.

tap at the flying saucer in addison. dark yellow pour with a fat white head. aroma is like cheesecake. grahama crackers, lemon and vanilla with a sweet note in the aroma. vanilla flavor that is crisp and smooth. leaves a nice mouthfeel. very dry doughy pizza crust flavor to this. i can detect some bitter in the finish. this would be great with some BBQ, maybe i detect some meatiness because of that thought, who knows? this is a nice quencher i will have again.

Bought this bottle at Norms in Vienna, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a decent frothy white head. Malty, hoppy aroma. Light though. Nothing overpowering. Some bitterness, and a little dry as well. Light malt. But smooth.
