3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent strong pilsner. Malty hop aroma that went a little floral. Light amber color with good foamy head. Nice up front hops presence with maltiness that reminded me this was a pilsner. Clean crisp palate. Alcohol was well hidden and didn’t affect the overall taste. Good beer that I would pick over normal pilsners.

enjoyed it, but it is not a pilsner. it was heavy, syrupy. but I would buy it again PigMine (42) - San Angelo, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2014
A bomber, pours clear and a darker gold. It has 8% ABV, stamped on the label, in a very hard to see ink. I know the description on rate beer says 7%. That must have been a previous, older batch. This bad boy is 8%. Also stamped it says it was brewed in 2014 (no month denoted), and it says 70 IBUs. 70 IBUs for a Pilsner is unheard of! This 8% beauty is easy drinking, smells and tastes hoppy like you’d imagine for an Imperial Pilsner, and goes down easily, with a clean, crisp finish. It’s lighter on the palate than an Imperial IPA. I give this brew high ratings because it deserves it. A dated bomber, 70 IBUs, and at a reasonable price, you can’t lose. Add in the less filling Pilsner style and it is a real winner!

Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a dark gold with some haziness. Flavor is grassy and some hops. Nice beer. Terminus (3739) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Tap at craft house in El Paso
pours dark orange hue with a small soapy white bead and great lacing. Noseis sweet and malthough I expected a big hoppy pils. Flavors of big sweet biscuit malts and faint spicy hops. Really not all that interesting. Big slick body with mild carbonation. Long lightly spicy hops on the finish lingering bitterness. Really not that interesting.

Pours a nice clear golden with fizzy white head. Cereal grains on the nose are most present; follows onto the palate. Finishes ok. texrx (41) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2014
Poured a clear dark gold with a 2 finger, foamy head. Lots of carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass. Floral and citrus hop smell with a hint of rye. It tastes similar to a rye IPA with a pilsner body. Semi-dry finish. A good pilsner dbhenry (139) - El Paso, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2014
A good pilsner with a nice malt flavor and high hops content. A very big head with plenty of lace, this beer is close to an IPA in taste. The malt is straight forward in taste. Overall, a good beer, but a little too hoppy for the malt strength. Dogbrick (14294) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2013
On draught at Hay Merchant. The beer pours a luminous orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, malt and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, grainy malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall. jmikolich (1486) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2013
22oz bottle, Secret Santa 2013 Summer, as you amp up the pils category you are more prone to off flavors, and unclean fermentation this is no different while still a viable and drinkable beer, the finish had a punch of flavor that was slightly offputting for me. the people I shared it with didnt seem to mind as much.
