They’re calling this a pilsner now, but it still seems pale lagerish to me, so that’s where I’ll leave it. Growler from the brewery. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, grain and a bit of corn. The taste is bitter grassy hops, some toastiness, corn and a grainy finish. Thin-medium bodied. Actually not minding it... it’s decent for what it is.

Tap. Pours clear yellow with a large, creamy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grainy, hay, straw, cereal), light hops (spicy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of vegetables. Flavor is heavy malt (grainy, hay, straw, cereal), light hops (spicy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of vegetables. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, medium carbonation with a dry finish.

Sampled from the tap at Nashville Flying Saucer. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has light grain with a hint of sweetness and crisp hops. Flavor is a bit thin with earthy sweet grain and earthy grass.

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Kennon ][ Gift ][ Stemless White Wine Glass ][ 9.23.14 ]

>> Chill haze straw pour with large white foam and good webby lacing. Nose is fresh apple and pear, white bread, Taste is watery and metallic, decent grassy bite. Dry, not sugary. As it warms, it gains a bit of butterscotch and yellow cake. Not bad at all, but unsure of why you would buy this over Prima Pils or Pivo Pils.

Bottle. Pours light gold with a white head. Grainy, light floral hops, and low-medium sweetness. Decent.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2012
12oz bottle, thanks to Andrew. Bottled 5/21/12. Clear yellow color. Thin white head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Nice, crisp lighter carbonation. Tasty peppercorn aroma. Lightly spicy hops, some multigrain malts. Definitely a spice - leaning pils, but I don’t mind that. Nice light bitter taste. Very satisfying. Would recommend. Didn’t care for the DIPA, but these Starr Hill guys make a nice pils.

Tap @ The Local, C’ville. The pour’s pale gold with a small head. Fairly faint aroma. Mildly sweet corn notes. Some honey. Little else. The taste is pale malt. General bucolic hop flavors. Sweet golden syrup. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, fine.
