Cloudy yellow gold despite my best attempts to keep the yeast in the bottle. Massive foamy white head that required at least four pours. Crisp pils aroma with spicy hops. Refreshing character with Saaz hops and clean malt flavors. Some citrus fruit in the finish though. Mouthfeel is crisp, fairly dry.

Probably the second best pilsner next to Rogue. Lots of bitter ear-wax hops but not enough malt to balance. light in color and body

Standard pilsner flavour with some major bite. This is a pilsner with attitude. Im not that big of a fan of the style, but it is very drinkable. This one has more than you normally get from a pilsner. Good, try one. Nice golden pour, loads of spicy aroma coming off, and some nice bitter bite. Good stuff.

bottle. translucent pale golden in appearance with a short-lasting frothy white head. great pilsener aroma - dusty saaz and sweet cookie dough. Perfectly drinkable! a good portion of hops and adequately bitter along with toast bread flavours. Nice balance. Lingering bitterness. I think this is an excellent example of the style when consumed fresh.

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.

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.

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.
