Pleasant hoppy aroma. Flavor is far too sweet and sour for a German or Czech pilsner, but has hops of a similar character; metallic finish like many German beers. Hay / straw combined with a strong yeast presence in the aroma gives a pronounced barnyard character. If there is one beer that exhibits a "barnyard" characteristic, it is this one. An enjoyable beer, but I found I was better able to appreciate it once I let go my expectations of Pilsner. I would not say this is true to the style, especially not a Czech or German Pils. I would like this beer much better I think if it were lighter, crisper, and less sweet. As it is, it is drinkable and enjoyable though.

ilovedarkbeer (2728) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pours a straw color with a bubbly white head. Notes of earthy spicy hops, fresh cereal grains, and spring water. Crisp, refreshing, and displaying a decent malt backbone.

JDBaker11058 (2040) - Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Appearance: clear bright gold with one finger of bright white head that lasts and last, with better than average lacing. Aroma: sweet creamed corn, cereal grains, grass, hay, and freshly cracked pepper. Taste: bready and surprisingly full-flavored, with honey, crackers, lemon zest, grass, hay, a hint of sweat sock, and sweet corn tamale over a good dose of floral/herbal hops. Finish: sweet bready notes last a bit, with a good dose of lasting hop character. Notes: This isnt a pilsner thats content to be your typical drink-it-and-forget it beer. Its not particularly great, but its bold and well-constructed for what many American breweries seem to consider a "filler" to their rotation.

Pours light straw yellow with moderate white top. Aroma is straw and cereal malts. Taste is grainy with small noble hop. Unassuming and unimaginable.

shrubber85 (11080) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Lightly sour corn and barley malt aroma. Bright yellow with nice white head. Sweet barley malt and hay flavor with a hint of lemon. Decent flavor but more in line with a Premium Lager as hops are pretty subdued.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Had at the Tap Room in St. Louis in the summer of 2011. Not a fan of the style. This is a micro lawnmower beer. But a bit pricy for that.

Fred82 (2213) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
12oz bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with medium foamy white head. Nice lacing.
Aroma : Crisp citrusy hops with chewy malty cereals. Slightly grainy. Light sweet malty notes.
Taste : Bitter hops with malt and light herbal notes. Fairly astringent bitterness. Finish malty with herbal hops. Rather dry on the finish with bitter hops.
Palate : Average carbonation.
Overall : Fairly average pilsner but not bad. A bit too bitter, well the bitterness is a bit too edgy. Malt is rather expressive. Mixed spicy notes on the finish. Ok but nothing special.

Bouteille de 12oz embouteille le 15 janvier 2013. Liquide jaune bl passablement trouble avec un anneau de mousse blanche. Un nez de mie de pain, de petites cerises, citron et grains. La bouche est agrable, facile avec du pain et du grain. Une certaine amertume agrmente la finale.

SlovakSniper (5389) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Une bouteille ne le 15 janvier 2013. Une robe jaune et sa coiffe en anneau. Un nez agrablement citronn et aimablement touche par des parfums de crales renfermes. Un got qui ne cherche pas faire de bruit. Des herbes, du citron et un murmure de douceur cralire. Une bouche lgre, remue par des petites bulles et presque huileuse. Une finale sur des notes amrement pices. Une pils qui se marie bien aux chaudes journes estivales.
