The wonderfully refreshing German style American Pilsner has the translucent coloration and smooth taste that all beer lovers would recognize as "your basic BREWSKY!" No less complex, however, than its IPA companion, Woodstock Pilsner TM boasts some formidable hops and malts and makes for an engagingly provocative flavor equal to its consumers zest for life!

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow, fine bubbly carbonation. Kinda grassy lemon aroma - theres an off scent - diacytl was my first impression, but I wasnt 100% on that. It was definitely an off aroma though. Kinda lemony earthy-hop flavors, kinda midline for a pilsener. Nothing spectacular.

Pours hazy, light golden color with a thin white head. Very mild malt and citrus aromas. Flavor is quite nice, having a very citrusy quality, with a juicy, lemony taste that zings the tongue. Slightly dry finish. Very drinkable, but with enough going on to satisfy the palate. Could be nice with a lemon wedge. Can imagine this making an excellent pool side refresher. Gotta love the tie-dye label. Enjoyable!

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Pours a hazy golden body, and a wispy white head. Aroma is grassy, lemony, and a bit skunked. The flavor is placed, grainy, and there is undeniably some lactic presence in the finish. The palate does sit rather nicely though but I think Ill pour the rest of this out.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Pours a transparent gold with a white head. Grass and light malt make up the aroma along with a hint of clove. Light floral flavor, nice carbonation in the the light body. Not a bad "lawnmower beer"...easy to drink, a bit resfreshing...not bad, though nothing memorable.

aracauna (3567) - Georgia, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Clear gold, although there is sediment in the bottle, theres not much haze in the glass. The aroma is slight grassy hops, a bit of straw malt, although I wouldnt call this dry. Definitely not as good as their IPA.

SSSteve (4006) - - AUG 11, 2006
grassy hop aroma. clear yellow with a fluffy white head. not too bad. has a lightly sweet flowery finish from the hops and the usual grainy maltiness of a pilsner. good but obviously not made to be BIG.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 12 oz bottle. Pale yellow with a puff of white head. Grass, lemon, stale socks. Nondescript bready lemon. Not a lot here but drinkable.

The sister beer of the Woodstock (Double) IPA also came in a tie-dyed labeled bottle. The look was typical of a traditional Pilsner, with a very clear, pale yellow body, lots of bubbles, and an average sized but durable head. Aromatically it was not as clean and hoppy crisp as I like a Pilsner to be, with a sweet, lemony scent, and a touch of DMS. The taste was average, with a refreshing, but a little muddy profile. The lemon twist effect was a bit overdone to be to my liking, and the lingering hop bitterness was metallic rather than spicy. This would turn out to be a good thirst quencher on a hot summer day, and the remainder of the six pack will certainly come in handy while I hang out on the porch. If they could hop it up a notch, and clean up the slight off flavors, this would be so much better.
