Canned on July, 19. 2017, consumed in late August: Pale yellow. Short-lived white foam. Mute nose of lemon, herbs, flower petals, baguette, hay, with light notes of paper, DMS and apple. Loose and prickly carbonation. Softly floral and delicately lemony, initially, with a baguette-like base of pils malt to balance the oily hops. Good snap to the body, although with mildly perceptible paperiness to the otherwise nicely extracted malt. A weighty apple-like slipperiness hampers the body’s firmness and thwarts the mineralic grip. A distant semi-coarse huskiness appears as the temps rise. Peppery hops nip at the tongue but are quick to flee due to the muffling effects of the DMS. Wet and timid, yet balanced and refined, finish of lemon and flowers. Well, unlike the excellent Tennessee Times Pils from Blackberry Farm which is also contract brewed at Brew Hub, this falls well short of reaching the heights of that one. This one's quite generic, and it certainly needs more snappiness and hop expressiveness. (I’m guessing these are Northern Brewer rather than Bavarian nobles). There’s no glaring defects or anything, but it’s curiously shy in all departments and thus pretty forgettable. crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Draft. Light golden pour. Light aroma. Some grainy. Flavor is sweet and grainy. Some sogginess. oobawa (1918) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Very macro for a micro, pouring out like a fizzy yellow lager with no head or lace. Nose is mostly cereal grain, some yeast. Taste hits a very straightforward lager note, apple esters and grainy malts creating a sweetness that the minimal hopping never offsets. Finishes semisweet and bready, in dire need of a Noble punch. Basic macro texture. Skip it. Stylurus (57) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2017
A good pilsner with floral hops. Light and refreshing. Malty. A good summer beer. Teg12 (2) - - APR 22, 2017 does not count
Nothing fancy. Drank it out of can on the beach on Hilton Head Island. Screams vacation. Great looking can.

Honestly was a bit disappointed in this brew, being a fan of Palmetto's Charleston Lager and the brewery in general. Part of the disappoint was going in expecting an authentic Pilsner with a crisp pale malt and noble hop bitterness, but then finding a rather sweet and bready malty flavor profile more in keeping with a standard American lager. Some minimal grassy floral hoppiness to be found, but hardly with any backbone of bitterness. The shoddy appearance didn't help either, with a fizzy head that consistently disappeared instantly. Criticisms aside, this was an enjoyable smooth sweet all-malt lager, drinkable but mostly uni-dimensional. Will skip this and look for Charleston lager next time, which is more akin to a real Pilsner than this brew.

12 can from my son in SC. The Pilsner poured a clear gold color with a thin head and limited lacing. The aroma of lemongrass greets you and pale malts. The taste is clean with more lemongrass and some floral hops. The malt backbone helps this brew. The Pilsner has a light body with soft carbonation. The finish was clean with some light bitterness in back of mouth. HighlanderOne (1401) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Poured from can. Aroma of malt and citrus. Gold, thin head. Tasting a good amount of sweet malt with lager hops and pepper. Sweeter than your average pils but good, crisp feel. Not bad. BeerdedDave (2041) - Beckley, USA - AUG 11, 2016
gold color; light, floral hop aroma; light, crisp, and refreshing; light floral hops and mild bitterness geologyguy (1688) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Light malty smell, taste is smooth and a touch sour...good! Hops give it the "sourness" although I smoked and had liquor so it may be off...one dimentional but light and smooth so could enjoy several
