Bottled. This beer was a cloudy golden color with a white head that left some nice lacing behind. It had a skunky smell, but luckily it didn't carry over to the taste. Lots of hops which overshadows the malt taste. The hops also linger in the finish. Kinda IPA'ish with the hop bitterness, not that I'm complaining. Once I got past the initial skunk aroma, the beer was quite good. I probably received a bad bottle, since nobody else here mentions the skunky aroma. I will try this again!

A very good pilsner a noticeable malty taste with a nice bitter finish. I found the aroma objectionable there was a nice malty aroma too it, but it was masked by a sweaty presence. It is still the best pilsener i have had too date.

Gold colored. Malty aroma. Plenty of hops, slightly bitter. Dry finish. A very nice pilsener.

A decent Pils - nothing too special. Better than Urqel, Jever etc, but not quite up to par with the HopBack Pils, Sly Fox Keller Pils, or even Victory's own varietal pilsner offerings.

A nice bright golden color, that pours with a nice white head that disappears quickly. Has a nice appealing floral bouquet. The first taste is one of a soft malty flavor, which then finishes with a nice sharp hop bitterness that marries well with a bit of hop flavor. This is a great example of a Pils, which I wish I could get on a regular basis.

Wow what a pilsener! Huge hoppy aromas, earthy/grassy. Clear Golden in color with a large white mostly lasting head. Very bitter hop flavor with a very crisp and clean finish. One of the best pilseners out there.

Bright gold. Clear w/ nice fluffy off-white head. Fresh, grassy aroma of saaz hops w/ some biscuit & bread notes. Soft, pillowy feel. Lots of hop flavour w/ good malt background. Finish is firm, dry, and bitter.

ok I'll start of buy saying buy this beer. So many pils taste watered down. Not this one. It pours a light yellow, at this point I'm thinking "tasteless beer". But what's this great taste. I can taste, hops, light malts,wheat, caramel. I could drink this all sumer long.

A really interesting take on a classic style. Yellow beer meets IPA. I am typically not a hoppy beer lover. I find most IPA's too flowery or too sticky. THIS beer definately packs a punch of hops, but finishes surprisingly smooth.

Tonight I have seen both extremes of lager. First I tried the bland horror of Bud Light, now I discover one of the best beers that I have ever known. Golden-yellow, big white head, lots of lacing. Aroma of German noble hops, especially Saaz. Flavor of hops, again Saaz, much floral and grassy stuff in there. It's nice that someone can make a really hoppy beer that isn't an IPA or APA. This hoppiness is held up by some soft sweet malt. It's light-bodied but in a good way. I'm really impressed by this beer. Most micros seem to avoid pilsners as being too close to macro swill, but this really proves what the style can do.
