(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with a white head. Light and semi-sweet aroma. Good amount of malts with some grassy hops underneath. Flavor is much the same. Not overly sweet but nicely balanced with some good grassy and floral hops. Very lightly bitter aftertaste. AdamT (268) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2014
12oz bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, V.A. compliments of Zizzybalubba. Golden hue, murky clarity with almost completely diminishing white head. No lacing. Sweet fruity aroma, spice, light citrus as warms. Light bitter fruity taste up front with a light spice finish. Soft carbonation, wet on the palate.

Bottle (brewed in Pittston, PA -- by Susquehanna Brewing Co?).
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy light yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with light notes of minerals and sulfur.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Other than the doughy yeast note, the nose is actually quite evocative of Franconian pils, so it deserves some props for that. Sadly, it doesn’t hold up in the mouth experience, being pretty flabby/syrupy and overly sweet. Some more attention to detail on this one might be able to turn this into a winner. bytemesis (8438) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle, thanks bill! Pours hazy butterscotch, medium fizzy off white head that mostly dissipates to a ring and a film. Nice lacing though. Aroma is grain, grass, some biscuit. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, not metallic. A bit of something sweet, hard to place. Overall very clean. Light body, prickly carbonation. Not bad at all for style. Refreshing after yard work.

Tap light golden pour. Sweet, floral, bread. Light body. Refreshing. Easy to drink

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Hazy yellowish-orange pour with a foamy white head. Aroma of tangerine and Earth. Taste is good but the citrus is much more subdued than anticipated from the aroma. This is not what I expected as a pilsener. Pretty good overall. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle poured a lighter golden color with a cap of white head. Aroma has sweet malt, grain touches, and a bit of hops. Mouth feel is medium light with medium low carbonation. Flavor follows suit, pilsner malt, mild lemon, grains, and bits of hops. devman171 (1221) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2014
