Brilliantly clear, pale/straw color with big white head. Aroma is of crisp malt and Saaz hops. Flavor is clean and crisp, if a bit dry. The malt does come through in the middle and the hops are present as well. Despite how this beer has been rated by others, I thought it was a good effort at a pilsner. Kind of a hopped up all-malt Budweiser.

Kinda yellow and fizzy looking though this does have a nicely retained egg white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with notes of hay and straw. There is a malt base in the background. Flavor is decent. Definite lemon, some light hop bitterness with just a dash of malt biscuit flavor in the background. Pretty tasty on a hot Texas summer day.

Pretty good pils. Light hop aroma. Flavor is mildly sweet and finishes lightly bitter. Appearance is yellow/fizzy. The is no head retention and no lacing. Pretty refreshing for hot Texas days.

Thanks to Robanion for this one! Gorgeous beer that pours a tall column of medium yellow with a full head of white. Fine streams of tiny bubbles play on their way to the surface. Faint hop aroma lead to a lightly sweet flavor. Light, watery, softly carbonated yet gassy all are things I expect in this type of beer. No off flavors in what I believe is an all malt Pils. Not enough bitterness or hop aroma to call this a Boh Pils in my book, but I just finished mowing the lawn and this was a refreshing, quaffable beer. Better than all the Macros.

Pours a golden color with a bubbly body and an almost non existant head. Nose is some what corn like, with grass, and a bit of DMS. No skunky bitterness from noble hops which is nice. Actually a pretty good pils, Nice mouthfeel and a decent finish. Very refreshing.

Bottle from Market Street (Allen, TX) Poured a nice clear gold color with what started out originally as a fluffy white head, which quickly dissapeared into a thin white layer, maybe my wife washed out the glass??? Aroma was slight floral notes. Flavor was very nice, malty, great use of flavor hops with a very nicely balanced bitter...I was pretty impressed. Palate was light medium body with medium-high carbonation, easy to drink.....I enjoyed this beer!

Thanks to maltomeal for this one. Pours a beautifully carbonated pale yellow with a two finger creamy white head. The nose is sweet and malty, grassy, hay, . The flavor is a tad sweet, malty, grassy, no alcohol, very drinkable and refreshing. Easy on the mouth with a cleansing carbonation. Finishes very abrupt and has the slightest waxy low AA hop feel at the end.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some bready malt. The flavor is hoppy, but the bread/toffee malt make the beer very well balanced. There is some grassyness in the flavor from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice, easy drinking balanced pilsner. Nothing too exciting, but a good beer to drink the hot months.

Received in trade from TexIndy, thanks for the opportunity. Wow this is the lightest colored beer that I’ve had in a while. Pours a clear light golden/straw color with a bubbly one finger white head that sticks around for a while. Smells of grass, apples, sweet malt, a bit grainy. Taste is grainy and grassy with a hint of fruit and a slight sulfur. Finishes dry with a lingering light fruitiness. Carbonation is crisp, body is light, mouthfeel is lightly syrupy. Very light refreshing beer. Reminds me of a macro, only better. I could see myself drinking many of these on a hot summer day.

Bottle 12 oz - This is a true tasting pilsner with a little more mouthfill then the regular stuff. They certainly used Czech Saaz noble hops and plenty of it without being over hoppy or bittery. Slightly dry bittering on the back of the toung. Out of all the S.A. brews, this is the best one coming out of the bottle ....but I still in favor of the amber ale out of the tap.

ttoadee (1491) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Aroma hay, grassy hops, clear light gold color, quickly receding white head. Sweet, light malt taste. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice malty finish with a snap of hops. Does not quite hit the mark as a pilsner (not quite enough hop character), but an enjoyable lager a step above the mass market stuff.
