3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It looks like I’m alone here, but I really liked this beer. The only thing I will say is that I think it may have been overcarbonated. The second I opened it, foam shot out about 2-3 inches and it was hell to pour.
Yellow body with a great head (maybe due to over-carbonation) that poured worse (or better) than a Duvel. Great retention. Aroma of homey and malts was very prevolent to me. Very crisp on the nose and pallate. Nice honey backbone to smooth out the hops nicely. Very smooth drinker. I could see sitting down with a six pack or more and not getting sick of it. It was a very fresh bottle so maybe they changed something since the other reviewers. Maybe worth a revisit by previous BA’s. Solid offering.
Not in the least could this beer be called a pilsener merely due to the yeast used. It uses (I assume) nontraditional hops in untasteable quantities, and the cloying honey flavor overpowers any character it might have had. It also seems under-carbonated.
It tastes sweet and malty with a pleasant aroma.
Shadowy letters above the label on the bottle and a single line on only one side of the six pack mention that it is in face brewed with honey. I feel the onset of a sugar headache already... Clearly this is the sort of beer that is supported by a local population with few other options. If alcohol was returnable five of these would be on the way back to the store right now. I hope to save you the trip.Nero55 (947) - Nevada, USA - JUN 21, 2014

It tastes like an oversweetened, undercarbonated, underhopped (with non traditional pilsener hops) sweetened lager. In tiny dark letters above the word pilsener it says "pilsener brewed with honey". If alcohol was returnable I would be driving 5 + 3/4 full bottles back to the store right now. -An actual pilsener drinker.Hope I save you the trip.
Bottle. Golden with thin white head. Aroma of pils malt, slight corn sweetness, and light floral hops. Light body, malt, light sweetness (honey?), some floral hop notes, and sweet finish. Atom (2594) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2013
12oz bottle pours a clear golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma of doughy yeast and sweetness from the honey. Taste of yeast with a slight sweetness on the edges of the palate from the honey with a touch of hops. Pretty clean and refreshing would have liked to see it a little more crisp, but overall an enjoyable Pils. Lemke10 (996) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a clear light amber color with a minimal head. Has a scent of mostly wheat honey and sweet malts. Has a smooth, crisp, clean taste of honey and wheat. Tasted really good with lunch. Essentially taste like a Leinenkugel’s Honey Weiss with a bolder taste and thicker texture. nuplastikk (6512) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2012
12oz bottle picked up in Ashland. Orange-tan, a pinch of chill haze. Steady thin, creamy white head, carbonation bubbles rising underneath. Buttery pff aroma. I guess it could be the honey, but if you need to add honey to your Pils, something is wrong. Assumably made by and for the training wheels side of the equation. An OK, tolerable Honey Lager, a terrible Pils anything. Embarrassingly bad....even worse that it costs the better part of ten dollars a six pack.

Golden amber with white head. Sweet malt, earthy, candy, and medicine like aroma. Flavor like aroma, syrupy and mild hint of bittering hops. Medium body, lite bitterness, and sweet malt dominated. Not quite sure why this is classified as a pilsener.

Tap at South Shore Brewery on Nov. 18, 2011. Pale yellow pour with noticeable carbonation bubbles. Light grain nose and a touch of honey sweetness on taste. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Overcarbonated, sweet, more like an epl or apl. I mean this one was super carbed. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 26, 2009
12oz bottle at the Tagalong Golf Resort in Birchwood, WI. Dark yellow pour with a nice white head. Light malty, sweet aroma. Very smooth, a little honey and a nice hop bite in the finish, not bad. noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Hazy gold pour, thin white head vanishes quickly, but does leave a few spots of lace. Aroma is faint, grassy hops, cereals. Honey really comes out in the flavor, also creamy, cereal elements. Definite funkiness in the finish; I’m ambivalent as to whether it’s a good funk or a bad one. Thin bodied, somewhat watery.
