look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12-ounce bottle poured into a pilsener glass.

A: Pale gold hue with a fast-settling white head. Very fine lacing clings to the glass, and carbonation is very subtle.

S: Cracker and honey-like malt character is present, while floral, grassy hop aromas seem to dominate.

T: Much like the aroma. Hops seem a bit more dominant than malt in this one. Floral, with hints of citrus and grassy notes, followed by a biscuity, grainy malt profile. Finish is floral and quite dry.

Notes: Moderate in body, with a very clean mouthfeel. I was surprised by the massive hop bill in this one. It's a good beer, however, It reminds me more of a German pilsener than Czech. Nonetheless, very drinkable, although there are better options out there.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pale, slightly hazy golden color with a sorry macro-lager white head.

Aromas of minty saaz hops and white bread. Pretty close (but no cigar) to a good Bohemian Pilsener.

Light breaded with more minty Elmer's paste saaz hop flavor. This is where it starts to taste a lot like the other American craft attempts at German/ Czech lagers where there is a lack of pure, clean bready malt character and body ,and the hops come a little too close up front.

Fairly balanced finish with a little hop bitterness.

I can buy the real thing for less though, so I won't bother with this one again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Bright yellow, with tons of head and sticky lace left all over the glass. Impressive for a pilsner!!

S - Malty, wheat, grass, herbal,etc. Smells like a damn good pilsner.

T - All the characteristics of the nose. No trace of alcohol, malty, wheat, doughy. A tasty Pilsner.

M - Well carbonated, smooth. Oily and slick.

O - A very good pilsner, one of the better light pilsners I have come across. Probably great on a hot summer day.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, this was bottled in January. This pours s clear straw color with s large white head. The smells are of grass hops, bread hops. The feel is medium. The taste is okay, a little earthy hop bite and clean malts to wash it down.

A- A slightly hazy straw, with visible carbonation. A thick creamy head is short-lived, but leaves big lacing.

S- Big yeasty/bready sweetness

T- biscuity sweet up front with some nice bitter hops flavor on the finish.

M- A little thinner, but satisfying. Nice and smooth.

O- a really tasty pilsner

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A- Clear golden with a trace of a white head. Sticky lacing.

S- Nice fruity aroma. Lemon and herbal notes. Not overly grainy like some of this style can be.

T- Fruit and spice. Not huge flavors, but enough to set it apart from the standard pils. Earthy hops give a touch of bitterness in the finish.

M- Clean and refreshing. Light to mid body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish

O- Nothing spectacular, but a nice pilsner that works really well in the spring. Enjoyable. I really liked the spiciness to it
