UPDATED: MAR 9, 2011 pale golden with a large frothy white head, nose of grass, flowers, lemons. tasted of bready maltiness, slight butteriness, could use more hops. A nice enough beer, the kind of beer which I wouldnt turn my nose up at, but also not one I would rush across town and country to buy. A barbecue beer if you will. Re-rate - 03/09/11, on draft a very respectable pilsner, still not a Bohemian pilsner (whoever heard of a Czech brewery not using Saaz hops?) but certainly a nice beer.

Can. Poured a clear straw color with a thin white head. Malty, bready nose with notes of grass. Thin body with medium carbonation and a slightly watery mouth feel. Taste is medium sweet with moderate bitterness, notes of grain, grass, and light spice. Finishes with moderate bitterness.

Sampled at Great Lakes Brew Fest in Racine, WI. Aroma non apparent, light malt. Appearance like a standard lager, yellow big head. Taste not really like anything, kinda sourish, not their best.

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2010
Very disappointed. I was expecting more. This beer has very little flavour compared to a typical pils. The beer is ok but i think this is not a great example of a pilsner style. It has a pilsner taste but it is very weak. I will likely never drink this again.

In its style, I dont think youll find a better beer. I do wish it had a little more aroma, but it has a decent complexity to its taste, while still having that great crisp/clean pilsner feel. Great on a hot day, this one goes down easy, one after another.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Can. Pours a yellow gold, glowing, really nice color, white sudsy very sticky frothy head. Lightly plasticy sweet malty with balanced saaz spiciness, lightly floral, balanced and mellow. Flavor is much the same except for the aggressive bitterness, bit of a plasticy thing, very strong bitterness in the finish, clean noble hop spiciness, quick, clean, bitter, drinkable, refreshing. Medium/light bodied with soda carbonation that is just under being too aggressive.

Very clear, yellow, thin white head that dissipates quickly. Mild aroma, but very strange taste. Bitter, but a bit off... not very pleasant at all.
