Bottle 35,5 cl. Clear yellow with a white head leaving some lacework. Aroma of malt and perhaps some flowery hops. Medium body, sweetish malt and a little sulphur. Dry and lightly bitter finish. 100709

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.

Bog standard pilsner - nothing much else to say. Well made but I doubt I could distinguish it from stella

Thisis12ptfont (1214) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Aromas of lemon, vanilla and oats. Appearance is light gold with a thin foam top. Taste is crisp and smooth with faint flavors of lemon and coriander. Overall, don’t expect a full or flavorful beer. With that said, I do find this a crisp and refreshing beer with good drinkability. I’d give this a C- rating.

DavidWoodruff (630) - Windsor, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Pale gold with no head. Aroma of lemon drops. Dry malty with mild hop bitterness. Finish is dry and malty. Crisp, clean and not particularly interesting.

2.8
BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellow with minimal white head. Aroma is slight malt and biscuit. Flavor is more malty and bready than most pilsners but is nice. Slight bitterness. Nice beer.

thegreenrooster (4512) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pour is a clear yellow with a average white head. Aroma is a dry pils malt but also a kind of sweet simple syrup to it. Flavor loses the sweetness from the aroma. The rest it your typical dry cracker malt with just enough grassy hop. Typical easy drinking soild pils neither great nor bad.

Think it was called Lager when I had it Sparkling dark gold. Malt nose and taste

DTM (798) - Vacaville, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
On tap, part of the 10 beer sampler. Light color, slighty hoppy, but not much to it.
