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.

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

Appearance
Completely clear and a light golden color; small head formation and it settles out fast. Looks great in my tall pils glass!

Smell
Grass, mineral, and grain...fairly light, but inviting and certainly on par with style.

Taste & Body
Good crisp hop bite and slight mineral finish. Love the herbal hop character. It’s light-bodied but not thin or watery. Fairly high amount of bitterness, which I enjoy. Malt is light in flavor.

Overall
Great pils here! Totally drinkable, aside from the $10/6-pack price tag, and a really enjoyable lager.

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

Appearance: Pale golden with a white head one finger thick.

Aroma: Some floral hops, light malty breadiness. Touches of citrus with a bit of dryness in the nose. There is a wisp of lemon zest in the back.

Taste: Crisp mouthfeel at the start. Solid floral hop bite, lemon zest, minor breadiness, and a good touch of dryness in the finish.

Notes: A solid drinkable Pilsner for any time of year. Cheers.

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

Serving type: on-tap

My buddy Dave picked this up at GD and flew some home for me. Thanks mate.

Clear pale yellow body with a nice fluffy head.
Decent lacing and retention. Nice looker. 

Nose gives some nice light grainy maltiness and a mild floral hop aroma. 

Tastes good. Light malt flavors blend with the mild bitterness and a nice hop flavor. Not very sweet nor dry. Pretty middle of the road as far as pils go in that respect, which is nice. I don't like the sweeter versions.  

Very solid easy drinker. Would be a nice summer beer. Def worth a try.

12 ounce bottle -> Pilsner Flute glass

A - This beer pours up a very clear light to medium gold with a small 1" white head. Retention and lacing are both very good.

S - earthy notes, grass, floral, honey

T - pears, peaches, lemons, grassy flavors, maybe some honey, and a mild bitter finish. Well balanced from start to finish.

M - well carbonated, small aftertaste

O - It is a pilsner which makes it okay by me, but never a beer I just jump up and down for. Having said that though, it was refreshing and enjoyable.

From notes:

P: Thin sloshy crystal clear with thin airy sediment of head on top.

S: Yeast, floral hops, pear, small citrus notes, a touch of salt, and coriander.

T/M: High carbonation that presents limes and salt o saturate the tongue. Thin playful mouthfeel on a balance of floral hops and grain. Green apple rinds on the dry finish with a lingering orange aftertaste.

O: Fantastic Pilsner! Easily drinkable and refreshing with a perfect hop bite.. A great summer beer that would please anyone.

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: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- Light yellow slightly hazed body makes me think this pilsner was not filtered. Nice white head keeps a foam cap on throughout the session.

A- Light sweet malt aroma a pleasant floral bitterness and a slight note of alcohol.

D- Light sweet body with a pleasant light bitterness throughout. Not as floral as I would have hoped for nor was the flavor as crisp. The light sweet malt and bitterness are kindof muddy. Seems a little on the sweet side.

M- Light smooth body and moderate-low carbonation. Perhaps with a bit more carbonation the light crisp feeling could have come out more.

D- It's alright. I would not recommend it as a pilsner though, there are many better versions. Typically I find you can't go wrong with Great Divide. In this case, I would recommend against this brew.
