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.

Gold color with a nice frothy white head. Light aroma of grain. Decent bitter finish but I did not even finish the beer. Not one of North Coast best efforts.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Draught: Amber color with a small white head that disappeared quickly but did leave some lacing. The smell was faint but hoppy. Slightly bitter in the mouth with citrus flavors and some light hints of malt. Light and dry but clean and smooth.

This one did not really do much for me. Very light tasting, and harsh in the aftertaste. Did not have the nice balance that pilseners from Victory game me. Not the best beer from an otherwise great brewery.

I was told this is what Budweiser wants to taste like, and its true. Usually not a pilsner fan but this was pleasently surprising. Had a good bite for a pilsner. Poured a little darker than most pils. Not much of an aroma.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 I think this is one of the best pilsners Ive ever had. Its got a really nice full flavor. Rather tasty.

North Coast has pleased my palate with both it Old Rasputin and Red Seal. But, in my world, a pilsener is a pilsener is a pilsener. It poured a clear golden body mounted by a white, soapy head. Very smooth in the mouth with a peppery, hay flavor. Finishes crisp and slightly dry.
