An outstanding beer. Kudos to the brewers on this one. Only negative is a slight aftertaste, but it is not significant. A very good beer. MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Tap at Split Rock, ’04. Golden with a golden head and clear. Clean aroma with a touch of hops and malt. Nice malty hoppy balance. Some malt sweetness, hop flavor, and lingering bitterness and hops. Decent pils. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2004

Pours a cloudy amber with a decent off white head that does not really stick around too long. Nose is a bit woody with a slight perfume to it. Flavor is much more robust than I was expecting. Thick tree character with a stringent sweet edge that has an overall thick caramel tone to it. Feel is smooth on the liquid with a fairly low carbonation. Very drinkable. A very well made brew with a lot of body and character to it. Definitely worth a try. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 27, 2001
Nice rendition. Spicy and aromatic with a decent balance. Crisp and dry and subtly sweet.

One of the first popular micos in the Pittsburgh area. Classic Vienna style pilsner….excellent. Maybe my rating is higher because of loyalty to this brewery. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, and hops. The flavor is sweet malts medium body and a bitter slightly hoppy finish. gripweed57 (2308) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2017

G: Pilsner Urquell pilsener glass.
A: Dark gold with plenty of carbonation and a rather large head. Quite transparent.
S: Pale malts with a field-ish smell. Slightly sweet.
T: Slightly sweet with some grainy flavors. Slight hint of bubble gum. Slight hop presence. Slightly hefeweizen-esque.
M: Very light mouthfeel with minimal carbonation and no alcohol presence. Very smooth.
D: Exceedingly drinkable. Definitely looking forward to these over the summer. Fiancee thinks its "okay." Maltsoda (24) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Poured golden, amber, clear, minimal head. Aroma is sweet with caramel. Taste light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, lively, clean finish easy to drink. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing graced the glass nicely.
The smell had a nice assortment of Germany pilsner malts and had a nice light bitter crisp hops to complement the aroma.
The taste was mainly sweet and crisp.
The palate sat fairly light and sessionable. There was a good crisp carbonation about it.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Pilsener.
