While I'm not a fan of pils, this rendition is solid. Pale golden color. Pours with a big foamy white head. Flowery, bright, hoppy nose. Light and crisp on the palate. Medium hoppy, crisp, bitters taste. Seems a bit one-dimensional, still a good choice for those seeking a light and refreshing beer. Good BBQ beer.

Pale amber color, More hop character than I’d expect from a pilsner but very smoth and not the least bit bitter.

Pours a nice gold. Taste is pretty bland, maybe it has to do with the style. Hops are there but very muted.

Pours golden and clear, with a white, loose head. Aroma is gorgeous - caramel, wheat, a bucket load of hops. Flavor is well balanced between a pleasantly refreshing dry, bitter finish and a sweet honey malt backbone.

4.2
Northernbrewer (151) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2002
A full smooth bitter flavor with unusually spicy hop flavor and aroma. A very fine brew. There is a refreshing, almost menthol character to the hops that make this brew so unique and enjoyable in the often bland world of pilsners

On tap at the Purple Onion, Saluda, NC.

Pilsner? Really? It certainly looks like a pilsner in the glass, but beyond that, I wouldn’t even peg it for a lager, let alone a Pilsener. To me it was much more reminiscent of an IPA or and APA. That being said, it’s a great beer in its own right. The palate was somewhat thin and sulfurish, and the nose somewhat sweet, but I’d gladly have more. When I want an American-made Pilsenser, I think I’ll stick to Trumer.

My favorite domestic pils! Will still go for a pilsner urquell if I could only have one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NaturalIce (149) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Overall - a good pilsner. I don’t usually drink this kind of beer but the liquor store had this beer advertised as a RateBeer 100 percentile beer so I figured I’d try it. Very hoppy aroma for a pilsner. Very smooth somewhat bitter finish, but it goes down easy. This is a pretty good beer, but I can’t see myself frequently buying it.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2004
solid german hop aroma coupled with a crisp yet soft malt aroma. Brilliant golden color. Some bitterness but not overpowering the malt flavors that take the forefront as the beer finishes.
