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.

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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Draught. Clear golden color with thin head. Moderate carbonation. Not much nose to speak of. Grainy flavor with a hint of spicy hops. Not much bitterness. No sweetness. A bit boring, but better than your macro pilsners by a long shot.

The 12 oz. stubby bottle this micro brewed Pilsner came in proclaimed its adherence to Reinheitsgebot, without actually uttering the word, by stating: Water, Barley, Hops, Yeast & Thats All.

The look was classic Pilsner, with a pale clear yellow body, high level of carbonation, and a smallish white head. The brewer did not say bottle conditioned, but the carbonation looked natural to me. The aroma was pleasantly hoppy without being overbearingly so. Grassy, crisp, and little grainy, the aroma did a good job drawing me in.

The taste was clean, with neither the malt, nor the hops being clearly dominant, and a little lemon twist like tang. An embodiment of subtle refreshment, the beer did not attempt to break out of the quintessential mission statement of the style. It did however feel slightly blander than other American micro brewed Pilsners.

An above average Pilsner, made better by the fact that it is fresher stateside than the imports.
