Bottle, bought from Bruisin Ales in Asheville. Pours a pale golden with a voluminous white head, like whipped cream that linger and lingers. Aroma is grainy and bready with a touch of woody/earth hops (Hersbrucker or Spalt?). Taste is gry grainy malts, some sweetness in the background and a nice tang of hoppiness. Medium light in the body, clean, long dry finish. Nice beer. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Had this less than two weeks old according to the hand written date on the bottle. Very cool.. Bottle from Brawleys in Charlotte. Thanks to OSCF for sharing. Lively gold pour frothy white head and drippy lace. Grassy hops and corn on the nose. Corn bomb flavor with light signs of oxidation which I found strange given the freshness factor.

Served on draft at the brewpub, 4/6/11. Pours a clear golden color with a huge creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bready malts, almost doughy with grassy hops. The taste is sweet bready malts and very faint grassy notes. Medium bodied. 3fourths (9345) - 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.
Approximately 5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Charlotte, North Carolina. Consumed on 9-21-15. Listed as "Capt Jack." Pours a bright, clear gold with beige head. Looks good. Quite effervescent. Buttery smell, probably due to diacetyl, but I’m okay with that. Lightly buttery taste (buttered popcorn) but pleasant. Soft in the palate. Medium body; heavy for a pilsner. Easy to drink. Overall, more likable than good but not bad.

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.

Location: Draft at Ten Park Lanes, 12/3/14, as OMB Captain Jack Pilsner

Aroma: It has a fairly light nose of pilsner malt and cracker, some earthy notes, a bit of corn
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a pretty decent sized white head on top
Flavor: The taste is light and malty, kind of thin, but not bad, light bitterness, mild adjunct flavor
Palate: It has a fairly light body, mildly thin, not as a crisp/clean as I prefer in this style
I thought this was only an okay pilsner. It doesn’t hit the marks of the best in the style, and it has some mild adjunct type of flavors that make it less enjoyable than it could have been otherwise. Drinkable, but not any better than that.
