On tap. Pours with a clear yellow body and a quick to fade white head. Aromas of grain, grass, lemon and pilsner malt (it seems). Flavors are bready, cornbread, pilsner malt, grassy, light lemon and a touch of salinity. Dry and light. Medium carbonation. Good but bland. No noticeable mistakes, but it isn’t memorable nor assertive. FROTHINGSLOSH (7929) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2012
This one is a pretty classically done Pilsner - so as such it does not do a whole lot for me, though I have to give them credit for accuracy. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright straw yellow color with a huge creamy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was dryish cereal and light crisp perfumey and grassy hops. The flavor was tangy and citric with a sourdough bread undertone and crisp herbal hops. The finish was medium length and tangy with lingering bread and herbal hops. Light body. Ok. GenDV138 (7467) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Draft as part of a flight at Sudwerk in Davis, CA. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of light skunk, corn, wheat. Tastes of pears, citrus, wheat. Medium-light body with a dry finish. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Clear pale yellow color/ white head. Dusty pale malt, peppery aromas. Light to medium bodied. Lightly sweet honey, pale malt, salty flavors. Braudog (6789) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2002
Little aroma and only a vague malt flavor. Made for the Bud drinkers I guess. Good light pils but without distinction.

Pours golden with only very gentle bubbles and a nice fluffy head. The nose is quite shandy-ish with notes of sweet malt and lemon. The taste has sweet pale malt and lemon again. The palate is medium bodied with a nice tangy texture and a fresh finish. Overall, not a typical German Pilsen in my opinion but well made. RobertDale (6649) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 16, 2016

Aroma: The nose is german malts, grass, cereal, and a little floral hops
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a fizzy white head and streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is balanced betweem the crisp, cereal malts and floral hops
Palate: The body is light and crisp with a fairly clean mouthfeel and lively carbonation
Honestly, I didn’t think this was a bad pilsner at all. It had a pretty decent flavor, it was on style, and it had a crisp and clean mouthfeel. It’s fairly simple, and not particularly interesting, but it works for what it is trying to be, so I’d drink this one again.
Pours light clear yellow with smaller white head. The aroma has pale pils malt, spicy hops, light herbs and touch of dough. It has a light crisp body with fairly sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with cry malt, bright minty hops, grass, minerals and crackery malt. The finish is fairly astringent. Pretty good. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a very effervescent clear yellow color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is very floral and minerally. The flavor is the same with a nice noble hop presence and a clean palate. A little bit of aspirin in the finish that throws it a bit off for me. I’m not sure if this is the new version of their old Pilsner, but I liked the previous one better.

Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is bready/grainy with some sweet corn and some grassy, noble hops. The flavor is pretty big with a full body and some bread and corn. Strong noble hop presence offsets the sweetness. The finish is nice with some earthy bitterness and a touch of sulfer. Overall, a nice flavorful pils that’s just a little too sweet for my tastes.
