Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - OCT 16, 2012
Sparkling golden colour with a persistent white head. Aromas of sweet malt and Irish whiskey, oddly enough. There is a chemical freshness along with peachy nectar. Im undecided as to whether this is an asset or not. On the whole I have decided that I quite like the smell. In the mouth there is an enormous amount of carbonation that brings out slightly tart fruity juiciness and some of the more mellow malt characters. This is a pilsner, but not like I know it. It finishes with an almost Granny Smith apple crispness but I am left wondering about a few things. It wouldnt slot nicely into the style, it is a curious creature but not without its charms. Does this oddness harm the overall response to the beer and should it be regarded along BJCP guidelines? Ill prevaricate and judge it whether I liked it or not along with consideration for what it would do if judged more critically. I did quite like it, I have had less charming beers but Im looking forward to something different next.

BeerViking (4444) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2017
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.

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.

oobawa (862) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Shit, this makes Lagunitas Pils seem downright revolutionary. Burnt grain middle, slight diacetyl around the edges, and slack, apathetic carbonation. Way too close to macro light yellow lager for comfort.

A very good drinkable German style pilsner. North Coast Brewing got this one right, would recommend.

ghostbeer (173) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Toasty and malty. No bitterness and unexpectedly it was almost savory. This helps to set it apart-different and not too bad.

kevinator (2025) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2016
Decent for the style but nothing extra for uniqueness. Mild aromas and flavors of grassy malt with a light hops presence. Very traditional color and mouth feel.

tricksta_p (4015) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is grainy malt and floral notes with a touch of fruity grassy hoppiness. Flavour is light sweet and bitter. Body is light to medium. Fairly enjoyable midly hoppy floral-ish Pilsener.

trapped (2672) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle. Clear pale yellow with small foamy white head, faint malt aroma, medium carbonation, sweet malt taste, smooth body, abrupt finish with slight aftertaste (honey?). Very taste but nor remarkable.

cattaneopapa (362) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle bought back in August in San Francisco. Pours a clear starw colour with one finger of lasting head. Lacing clinging to the side of the glass. Aromas of herbs, bread, hay and grass. Taste matches the aroma with some notes of citrus. Smooth and well balanced. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Wolfenkopf (193) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2016
The aroma is a bit citrusy, like a mild IPA. Theres a hint of wheat in there, too. The brew is a pale gold, very typical of a pilsner. The head is white and takes a good while to settle. The taste is primarily that of wheat with a backbeat of light malt. Its a wonderful balance. The palate is a little smacked down by carbonation burn, but it passes fairly fast, revealing a very light oily quality left on the tongue. Honestly, I could drink this all day and would choose it over other pilsners when Im in a pilsner mood.
