Clear yellow/orange in color with no head or visible signs of activity. Aroma is the classic pils aroma - crisp, lemons, honey and hops, as if they’ve been stored in a forgotten crawl space. Flavor is crisp, lemony and bready. Light, but the hops butch it up a bit. Musky connotations. Light and smooth. Trademark pilsner. Slight dry feel left from the hop stop on the back and center part of the tongue. Nice summer refresher. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Bottle. Golden body under a tall white head. Good lacing. Dusty pale malt aroma with just a trace of hops. Fairly sweet flavor. Pale malt w/ light nobleish hops. The hops finally get to assert themselves a bit in the finish, it’s a bit bitter. There’s nothing *wrong* with this beer, it’s just very unremarkable.

Very basic. pale sweet and almost like a very light honey taste to it. lipsmacking finish... CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of dry Saaz hops and pale malt. Body is lightly sweet, but mostly dry and bitter with a tart finish. Too sour and puckering to be a good pils. Bland flavor could use a more refined body. howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 Classic Americanized pilsner flavors, for the most part. The single that I purchased tastes very fresh and the spicy hops really pop. Overall, this is a good every-day pils.

Golden color, lots of creamy head. I'm not having much luck picking flavors out of this one. Just a bland, average pilsner. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Golden color with a moderate off white head. Sweet malt and light band-aid aroma. thick, yet spritzy in feel. Maybe my taste buds are off today, but I had a bottle of this a few days ago and thought higher of it. Lacks a malt finish that I really enjoy in this style. This one seems a bit grainy. I have another bottle and will rerate in a few days if my impressions are based on a bad taste bud day.
