jordinc (105) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Poured light golden with a quickly receding white head and light lacing. Not much by way of aroma. Pretty heavily carbonated, dry on the palate. Orange blossom notes do come through and the result is quite refreshing. There is a hint of grainy liquor that lingers on the tongue. An interesting take on the style, maybe a little bland if drinking more than one.

Can. Clear golden yellow color, small white head. Lightly floral aroma with some fruity esters. Taste is floral fruity cereal. OK.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Pours a golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and some hops. Flavor is typical pilsner, not a lot of hops, a nice smooth taste. Nice and dry in the finish.

Pretty average- honey definitely comes through as it warms up. Unique pils but once is enough. Honey pairs well with the crisp lager notes.

12 oz can pours a yellow color with a nice white head. Aromas of orange, floral. Light bodied, refreshing and nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tightslice (1115) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Can from Whole Foods Market in Winter Park, FL. Aroma is honey and orange blossoms. Taste is sweet honey, some citrus qualities. No real Pilsener elements (other than the honey) but a weird Orlando staple. This would sell well at Trader Joes (along with the Toasted Coconut Porter)...a little bit novelty.

2015 BJCP Category: 31B Alternative Sugar Beer

AROMA: Mild nose of light grain and some honey. Slightly sweet, but otherwise odorless. 5/12

APPEARANCE: Beautiful orange color with crystal clarity. Effervescent when first poured, but goes flat quickly. Head fizzles away like a soda. No lacing. 1/3

FLAVOR: Does not seem like a pilsner at all. More of an amber ale. Missing the body of a lager. Honey flavor is evident, but tastes like cough syrup. No hop character. Palette is barely tolerable. 7/20

MOUTHFEEL: Not at all crisp as a pilsner should be. Completely tepid, slightly thick. Texture is at least smooth and finish is mostly clean. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Tastes and drinks like an old can, but its actually quite fresh. This is nowhere close to a pilsner and completely lacking in character. Seems like failed homebrew, not a commercial product. 3/10

TOTAL SCORE: 18/50

Itzjerm (2487) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2016
A nice Pilsner with a citrus brightness and malt foamy Carmel. Sweetness obvious. A very nice beer for a Pilsner. Not a German pilz more a fruity American Pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
