Pours a bright yellow in the pils glass. Aroma is muted but this is a nice crisp pilsner. Grain taste lingers in the back. Super easy to drink. A good take on a hard style to get right.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pilsener glass. Pours clear pale gold with a fluffy white head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma is nice fresh bread, none of that corny character you get with lesser pilseners. Very bread crusty. Flavor is grainy and bready with light floral hops, maybe even a miniscule fruity tinge. Not really a snappy crisp beer; body is a tad bloated for the style. Minor bitterness, a little sticky on the finish. Nothing special.

A fine example of what a good pils is all about. To start, the aroma was probably the weakest part of this beer, as it clocked just barely above average with a light malt aroma. Nothing too strong or offensive, but still light. Appearance was a clear yellow with nice carbonation. Mouthfeel was crisp and medium-bodied with a clean finish. Flavor was nicely balanced with a hoppy bite, grainy, grassy and the all tasty malt. Definitely worth it if you can get your hands on this. Nicely crafted guys.

Acrid aroma. Mellow taste with a bit of the back of the mouth bitters.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a fair head. Aroma of fresh grain, bit of citrus and malt in the background. taste of citrus, light malt sweetness and grain. nice bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp, clean and refreshing. enjoyable beer that has a bit of that old world character.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2011
On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Pours clear gold with a 2 finger white head. The nose is pilz spice and grassy hops. The taste is the same with a nice spicy hop finish. Medium bodied.

A pretty boring pilsner. Pours a clear yellow. No smell, and not much taste either. A little spicy. Boring. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[355ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Pours a golden clear yellow with a beamingly bright head. Plenty of rising carbonation. Soft, sweet aroma of biscuity malt. Slightly tangy on the palate, leading to a bitter, crisp finish. A decent pilsner – some faint flowery hop in there, the whole thing is (as you’d expect) very drinkable [09032012]
