Draft at Olde Mecklenburg - Charlotte. Pours clear yellow with a white foam head. Nice crispy cereal character with white bread, straw and hints of vanilla creme. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp finish, refreshing, with light bitter straw, mild doughy pale malts. Delicious little pils. jcnielsen (3412) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2014
On tap at Olde Mecklenburg. Pours a yellow with white head. Grainy, earthy, pils, noble hop flavors. Pretty nice pils. cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2014
On tap @ OMB. Pours a touch hazy golden appearance with a white head. Lot of Pils malt. Dry. Herbal. Cracker. Lightly to moderately spicy hops. Some lemon in the flavor. Grassy and a touch chewy. Mostly dry. Herbal / earthy hops on the finish. I’m not getting much of any residual sugar. Quite dry. Solid. geologyguy (1604) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2017 Smells like blueberrys... Smooth beer, malty, low hoppyness...taste is low but good...could drink a few... X2 at black market...same description but can’t see rating numbers specifically so not touching JustinFromAL (125) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 8, 2013
On draft from the Carolina Beer Company in the Charlotte airport. Pours a nice pale gold with minimal white lacing that retains well. Nose is not assertive, but in a bit stuffed up. Taste is grassy hops, a little bready malts. Decent pilsner.

Overall, a pretty solid pilsener, very drinkable. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 Draft at GABF 2013. A too-sweet, under-hopped Americanized Pilsner with syrupy and chewy malt. High sugar plus low acid = flabby, limp body. Has not glaring flaws, only wildly out of balance, under-attenuated and cloying, and suffering from a thin body, especially in the finish.

Bottle in Asheville, February 2014: pretty much the same.
Sample @ GABF 13. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is rather skunky, malty and grainy. Flavour is very thin, not so bitter as other pilseners. Very short finish, watery mouthfeel. Not impressive. jlynnehayes (3) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2013 does not count
Looks great. Pale color with great carbonation, long lasting head. Tastes spicy with a little bit of banana. Light and crisp. BeerandBlues2 (13355) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Tap. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is Pilsner malt, corn, spicy and earthy hops. Flavor is malty, medium hops and bitterness, clean with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
