ABUSEDGOAT (2656) - California, USA - JUN 26, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2007 Clear golden bronze, large white head with decent lacing and retention. Aroma is a boatload of grassy/spicy hops with fresh bread. Its big for a pilsner, but stays within the limits of the style. I dont think Id change anything... if it lacks anything its a wow factor.

On draught at the Horse Brass in Portland, OR. Wow! Amazingly fresh aroma and flavor. Pale golden color. Really nice hop aromawith a good portion of malt. The flavor has a bit of honey. Great beer.

jsquire (4275) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Pale straw color out of the bottle with a fizzy white head. Great nose of light citrus and strong hops. Very clean and crisp taste. Lots of hops with pine and mown grass flavors with some orange citrus. Some toast and dough. Very easy to drink. Ive had old bottles before and didnt even rate them, but this bottle was several months shy of the best before date and was very tastey.

Beautiful creamy-gold color. Spectacular taste (though a bit light). Quite sweet, but with a nice bitterness in the aftertaste.

murawski (160) - USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle. A light hoppy aroma, and poured a clear golden color (typical of a good pilsner). The flavor caught me off guard -- there are more hops hiding in this beer than the aroma or appearance lead on. Definitely one to keep on my list.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Pours light yellow with a thin white head. Smells strongly of yeast with a bit of a hop kick to it. Light and yeasty with a slight bitter taste. Long everchanging aftertaste from sweet and mild to a little bitter kick at the end. Nice pilsner which is a style I dont usually care for.

BlueDevil0206 (122) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Draught. Appears a light golden yellow. Perfectly clear with a small quickly dissipating head. Aroma is of malt and grassy/spicy/floral noble-ish hops with a bit of mild fruit. Flavor is doughy/malty sweet with plenty of earthy/citrussy hops to balance. Bitterness is moderate. Moderate fruity ester profile which is unusual for a lager. Body is fuller than expected from a pils and quite smooth. Great lager, with lots of hops.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2005
Herbal, leafy tobacco and grainy malts in the nose. Clear pale gold with thin but lasting cover of bright white head. Floral, spicy hop flavour with fair bitterness and an apparent cereal malt base. Light, refreshing body with fair carbonation. Sampled at Mondial de la Bire 2005.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
A very pale yellow with fine carbonation and a creamy head, the aroma is noble hops and clean malt. The flavor is a fine balance between hops malt and finishes dry with a firm bitterness throughout. A fine example of a pilsner- if only the German imports were so fresh.
