"maltier than expected, but still heavy on the hops and bitterness. Not worth the price ($12) as Sam Adams IP is better. This one didnt taste fresh. OK."

shrubber85 (11024) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle. Sour peach/apple malt aroma. Hazy yellow amber with large off-white head and nice lacing. Apple juice, grass, and caramel malt flavor. Light pine hops finish. A very unique beer - extremely fruity for a lager.

hopscotch (10931) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2003
Slightly hazy yellow lager. Starts with a huge, frothy, white head. Dimishes to a very small, lasting, creamy head. The nose is floral and peppery. Jalapeno, grapefruit peel, buttterscotch and caramel notes. The flavor is very malty, but remarkably well-balanced. Up front,the malt is very heavy with notes of butterscotch, caramel and toffee. Nicely bittered. Full-bodied with a heavy, silky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Long, bitter finish. A great pils!

Great sushi beer! Golden color with a nice head. Flavor is hoppy but not to the point of being bitter. Has a rich mouthfeel and a nice finish.

adnielsen (10580) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Tap @ Waldos KC. Somewhat hazy, golden yellow appearance with a fluffy white head. Moderately noble, floral hoppy, slightly grainy, slightly fruity, pale pils malty nose. Creamy, moderately fruity (almost like passionfruit), noble, floral hoppy, highly pale pils malty, lager flavor. Noble hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good.

faroeviking (10305) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 10, 2007
Bottle (really nice one). Hazy yellow with a nice bubbly mostly lasting head. Malty bit sweet and fruity aroma, which also appear in the flavour along with more hops.

DocLock (10301) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Pours dark straw (not copper) with a Brobdingnagian head and tons of lace. Hopcit aroma (as expected) with taste of malt, hopcit, and a slight tart apricotty finish. As it warmed the alcohol made itself known, and it acquired a slight harshness and a tad of astringency that I had to deduct slightly for. Great mouthfeel, and a great beer. Worth the price.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2007
Golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt and flower. The mouthfeel is oily like a barley wine. The flavour is NICE! Initially sweetish, but then comes the notes of malt, fresh bread, fruit, flower and a nice bitterness. The alcohol is neither seen nor heard, so to speak. Its a truly nice pilsner, impressing, in fact! 1860

jercraigs (10145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 Draft @ Goodbar Hazy golden yellow, small white head. Grassy hops in the aroma. Fairly strong grass and European style hops in the flavour. Some notes of toasty pale malt. Average to medium palate. Decent, alcohol is deceptively restrained but becomes more noticeable as my PINT goes on. Served up on tap by an Ice Cube lookalike at Goodbar in Buffalo.
