3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a footed pilsner glass.
A: Pours a straw color that isn’t completely opaque. The head features a nice layering of foam, about three fingers high in total. Texture-wise, it’s bubbly and rocky, typical of the style.
S: There are a decent amount of grassy hops here, along with a touch of fruity esters. Nothing remarkable here, yet perfectly acceptable given the style in mind.
T: The first thing I notice on the palate are some hints of fruity esters. Afterwards, it shifts to a mildly hoppy finish. The hops here are grassy, earthy, lemony, and even a bit peppery. There’s a really enjoyable balance to this one, all told.
M: Light on the palate, with sweeping carbonation. I’d reckon it could be a touch drier; then again, I like my pilsners bone-dry. Easy to drink as it should be.
O: Solid. There are few other pilsners I’d go for over this one, but I’d pick this over many others, too.
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. tsd08460 (1170) - Marshall, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2017

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 (273) - 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 (665) - - 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.

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 (38) - Wisconsin, 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.

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. Niko100 (2914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Rich amber color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma malt, grain, & some floral hops; Flavor of malt, hops, grain, and some citrus; Finish is slightly bitter; Decent overall.
