European Pilsner? Not even close. The flavor profile is strongly dominated by the late addition of very coarse hops. The aroma is similarly floral. Not sure why Shell´s is making a Pils that tastes like a West Coast IPA, but that is what this is. It would appear that they do not know how to produce a genuine Czech or German Pilsner, so they pawn this off on us instead.
First beer from the bewery, history of the brewery very interesting. This is a pretty dry hop foward pilsner very similar to traditional style. euniceradio (525) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2016

Bottle. Golden with small light head. Aroma of grain, pilsner malt, and a hint of floral hops. Light body, light hop bitterness, crisp, and a dry finish.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 Excellent Pilsner beer which is normally a style that’s just OK to me but I could easily session a few of these. No skunk flavor just clean and super easy to drink. I actually liked their Firebock Vienna Lager better but this is good. If you like Pilsner you have to try this. jackl (8029) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Keg @ Mimosa, MPLS. Light gold with a small head. Creamed corn and husky grain. Light epoxy hops. A hit of apple sauce. Nicely light and zippy. Lovely. A great cheap option. DW78715816 (119) - Kansas, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Excellent pilsner. Beautiful golden color, smell and taste is clean and crisp with a little citrus hop flavor and smell as a pilsner should be. If your looking for lots of hops and bold flavor you should be buying a double IPA and not a pilsner. One of the best pilsners I've had.
