Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of grassy hops and corn. Taste is more of the same with a mild bitter finish. Crisp and bland, I’m just not a Pilsener man. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Thanks to Skyview for sharing this tasty pils. Gold body with faint head. Corn and faint hops on the aroma. Slightly bitter taste with more corn, malt and hops. JK (6240) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2007

Thanks to Skyview for getting this for the group. I finally get my hands on one! Gold color with no head. Light aroma of corn and Noble hop. Taste is slightly bitter. Dusty earth finish. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Picked up single 12-oz bottle at Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a creamy and fast dissolving white head. Nice lacing for a pilsener brew. Aroma of white bread grain malt, a touch of grassy hops, and some light pear fruitiness. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation, fruity, with some white bread and citrus zest. Finish is slightly bitter, a touch of lemon zest, metallic texture and a light biscuit & pear aftertaste.

12 oz bottle. Tasted this one side by side with it’s cousin, Capital’s Special Pilsener. Poured a clear golden color. The head was white and fluffy with decent retention that matched it’s cousin. The aroma was not quite as nice. There was only some husky grain and white bread. It lacked the noble hop nose of the Special Pilsener. It was delicately sweet on the tognue with mild hop bitterness. Flavor was similar to the aroma, just a bit of cereal grain with a touch of light grassy hops. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

clear pale yellow, fine white head, specks of lace,
sweet grain aroma with light floral hops,
rich sweet cereal flavor, light balancing hops, touch of bitterness lingers into the finish,
Aroma: 4/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 8/20
Appearance: Pours a clear golden body with a thin white head.
Smell: I can’t get over how frigging devoid of any aroma some of these beers get. There’s no aroma beyond a light, light floral note.
Taste: Sourdough breadiness and a touch of lemon with a metallic bitterness on the quick finish. With such a near-absent aroma, I guess I shouldn’t have expected much in the way of hops.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Bland and lifeless. PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pours golden, creamy white head. Taste was slightly sweet, bready malt, spicy hops. Perhaps a bit thin. You could do a lot worse. WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 12oz bottle courtesy of Gurst. Pours a pale yellow with thin, fleeting head. Strong malt smell complemented by earth tones and a slight hoppiness. Taste is very grainy with slight sweet and bitter notes in turn. Somewhat sweet for a pilsner, but otherwise unremarkable.
