DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 11.2 fl oz bottle. Clear yellow color, nice thin white head, decent lace. Very nice smooth carbonation, and a dry finish. Nice, clean straw and white bread aroma, with mild bready hops. Mild bitter taste. Very good pilsner. 6/4/6/4/14 Update, 3/5/16: On tap at Dutchs. Pale yellow, white head, loose bits of lace. Doughy bready nose, mildly peppery. Moderate sweet, light bitter. Medium body, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, mild slick texture. Not as great as I remember, and kind of sweet for the style, honestly. Keg says best by 03.08.16.

vyvvy (6344) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Pours crystal clear yellow / light gold with a good sized soapy white head. The aroma has clean pale pils malt, spicy hops, hints of grass and mild doughiness. Very inviting clean and crisp aroma. Fairly light very crisp body with quite a bit of flowing soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with the same malty traits, but is sweeter than expected. There is also a bit of sulfur that is on the taste that wasnt on the aroma. The finish is very snappy and hoppy. I think my expectations may have been a bit too high on this one since it is one of my favorite breweries doing one of my favorite styles. Still a quality pils that Im glad is available in Missouri now.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle. Clear bright golden with a frothy bright white head. Malty and bready with firm but lowish metallic bitterness, really only come to realize the full force of it in the aftertaste. Good if slightly soapy hops here, and as good for volume drinking as their Helles. Medium-full body.

Drake (13492) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2012
11.2 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a large foamy white head. Decent head retention. The aroma is a bit skunky despite the brown bottle. Otherwise its primarily grassy hops. The taste is straight grassy notes with just the faintest bit of grain. Medium bodied. Disappointing, and I expect better from these guys.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle. Clear pale gold body with a large white head. Aroma-taste of herbal floral hops and spicey, bitter body. Clean tasting, minerally with a balanced finish. Light bodied. A clean but flavourful lager.

Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2012
Looks good in the glass with a pale amber-straw body showing lively carbonation and topped by a fluffy white head. There?s a bread like note on the nose. The taste is more hops dominated, with a fresh citrus zing and a nice crisp finish. A pretty straightforward beer, but delivers what it promises.

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 330 ml bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden with exquisite bubble action and a light white bubbly head. Aroma has some saaz hoppiness, a hint of black pepper. Flavor has some light bready notes, a bit of honey sweetness, some stone cracker like essences, and just a hint of saffron-like spiciness. Crisp mouthfeel. Solid Pils.

drowland (8534) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2012
5/28/12. 330mL bottle. Clear dark golden pour, like light apple juice, with a big, frothy, smooth off-white head that lasts quite awhile and laces in soapy spots and sheets. Light grainy and grassy aroma with hay, pilsner malts, and a hint of a bitter bite. Slightly sweet malty entry with a touch of apple, grass, and hay, followed by a bolder pale malt presence with lingering grass and a bit of a bite. Not bad!
