12oz bottle. Small white head atop hazy straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, some berry, light spicy, sour. Taste is medium sweet, bread, some spicy, melon. Light body, very drinkable, some crispness. dmac (6198) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2009
12 oz of disappointment. Poured a hazy straw yellow with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma was sweet with notes of apricot, plastic modeling glue and spoiled green grapes. Medium bodied with large bubbly carbonation. Flavor of honey coated cereal and a slight touch of fruitiness. This is a pilsner? Where’s the crisp hops and fresh grainy hops? Blah!!!

Bottle: Pale yellow with a slight haze and a weak white film of head. Fresh crackery dry pils biscuity aroma without much assertive hop presence. A bit fizzy on the palate- nice dry flavor- simple without much depth. Some very dry pils crackery notes- lean malt presence with a balancing nondescript peppery finish. Quite simplistic but no major flaws. Very easy going session. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden clear color with a small white head. Lots of bubbles race towards the head. Nose is straw and hay, some yeasty bready notes. Palate is thin, effervescent. Flavors of straw and light malt notes. finish is clean. hayduke (5187) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle that was bottled in March 2009 this poured a hazy yellow with a small white head and remarkably heavy lacing in the glass. Nose of caramel malts and grassy hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is pretty standard pilsner and the finish is slightly bitter. Not bad. I wish more brewers put bottling dates on the bottles.

Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving no lacing to skim surface. Sour malt and skunk aromas. Soft with skunky sour hops. smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Beer bubbled out of the bottle, yet when poured, it creates a frizzy, quickly dying head. The color is pale yellow or watery straw. The liquid is clear. Surprisingly, there is nice, but slippery lace.
Slight skunk to the otherwise mild aroma. Slightly earthy, faint smell of wet leaves.
The skunk shows up in the taste as well. There’s a mild hop that saves this beer from a completely deplorable rating. Highly carbonated and a thin body makes this feel closer to a spritzer. It’s drinkable in a pinch. heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Medium gold body with fast bubbles in a tall lager glass. The dense head was white and stuck around for a while. The aroma was doughy biscuit with some grass hints. I could not smell much else in the beer. Sweet tastes dominate, like pear with some hay in the clean finish. There was too much carbonation for my taste. I would like it to be more dry with some stronger floral hops. The hops in it are there, but play back fiddle to the sweet. BelgianBeerGal (4038) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottled. Pours a clear yellow colour with big carbonation. Small, fluffy white head and some foamy lacing. Not a big aroma at all. Flavour is typical pilsner but also a little spice and some flat bitterness in the finish. Decent. nearbeer (5362) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2008
12 oz, bottled May 7, 2008. Clear and effervescent, pale gold. Huge meringue cap endures well and leaves crunchy lace behind. Aroma of lemongrass and spicy honey. Flavor is similar, plus the addition of husky grain and a hint of cinnamon. Light-medium body is smooth, with a small hop tingle and a dryish finish. One of the better American examples of the style.
