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 & That’s All.wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2005
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.
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Poured golden with a foamy white head. Aroma had floral hops, citrus and malts. Very German Pilsner taste with the malts working quite well. This was pretty good. Certainly a summer beer I would have again. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2005
12 oz bottle pours golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of light malts and floral hops. Flavor is grainy with a nice hop finish. On the palate this is light, crisp and clean as a goos pilsner should be. Great beer for a summer day. FROTHINGSLOSH (7697) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 I like this brewer but am not a big fan of Pilseners in general. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale golden color with a medium sized white head that left good lacing. The aroma was lightly tangy and malty with a vague sweetness. The flavor is light sour malts with some bread and a hint of nut. The beer turns a bit sour on the finish. Not too bad for a Pilsener. elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Couldn’t really tell the difference between this and the wheat beer they make, but it’s still a very good quality pilsner beer. Almost identical in taste to the blue star wheat, at least to me. But still worth trying one or the other on a hot day.

Bottle 12 oz. Light amber color with medium white head that lasted most of the brew. Medium balanced aroma. Medium body. Average flavor of malt and hops with a medium dry finish. Below average pilsner. kaottic97 (5) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 7, 2005 does not count
A lighter pilsner. Didn’t taste a lot of hop. May seem a little tasteless, but drinkable. A little creamy too. novedyarg (55) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Pours a thin golden color with lots of carbonated bubbles rising to a thick foamy cream white head. Aromas of malts and hops blend together perfectly. THIS is a true Pilsner, take notes Miller. Smooth refreshing taste of malts that finishes with a slight bitter hop taste. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Somewhat strong hop aroma. Poured a little wimpy. Hard to get adecent head on the cloudy gold body. Weak tasting. Malt and some grainy sweatness and little else. Decent body for the style though. Drinkable, but not desirable. dwyerpg (6062) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Smells very hoppy for a pilsener. Not to similar to Czech pils, but in this case it’s a good thing. Hops not very present in taste. Could drink this beer at almost any time.
