3.03/5 rDev -25.9%
Attractive big pile of foam in the Peroni lager glass. Thick and long-lasting suds, bubbles streaming. This is more thick-bodied than crisp. Plenty of carbonation in the mouth.
Flavor is jammy and tastes like it's flavored with something. Resiny hop bitterness. Dank finish with a quite bitter aftertaste. There is something gummy about it. Cereal taste with some acidic notes.
This does not seem like a very good example of a Pilsner. It's a nondescript light beer that fails to be refreshing. Price was an eyebrow-raising $6.69 for the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

Golden, almost translucent. Thick & sudsy head adds to the overall mouthfeel. Lacing all over the glass. Sweet aroma with a very faint hint of apples/lemon, then earthy/spicy hops. Thick and sweet in the mouth with a very dry finish. Sweet like honey, lemon flavor adds nice acidity. Sharp hop bitterness at the end, perfect balance. Was excited to try this after loving their Hefeweizen last year. Heater-Allen really knows how to brew lagers. Try'em if you can find'em!

Poured from a standard pressure-cap bomber into a pint glass. Reviewed live.
A- One-finger white head. Fluffy and decent retention. Semi-cloudy straw-colored body. Clarity is relatively high. Sticky white lacing. Fine looking beer.
S- Some fragrant floral hops and tad of grassiness. Floral and fruity. Best pilsner aroma I've ever had.
T- Slightly fruity and biscuity. Not super complex flavors, but some bitter hop backbone. Pretty nice, I would enjoy this on a hot day.
M- Surprisingly full-bodied and wet. Carbonation is pronounced.
O- Best Pilsner I've ever had.

22oz bottle from Belmont Station/maltmaster420. Served in Pilsner glass.
A: Clear straw color with a 1" slightly receding head. A drifting of bubbles. Spot on for the style.
N: Slight floral presence and some dry malt/biscuit. Pine and earth floor. It's very subdued and clean in the way I expect a fresh pils to be.
T: Straight forward hop bitterness with a pronounced spruce/pine and earth tone. Some black peppercorn. Biscuit. This is extremely clean and impressive.
M: Surprisingly full, maybe a tad too much for the style.
O: An excellent representation that's worthy of its accolades. Clean, balanced, and shining. A showcase for the style, and an important reminder how important freshness is for Pilsners.

poured from bomber into glass. Pours a great clear straw color with a small head.
Crisp and pristine with really good aromas of crackers, noble hops, and grains. Very good depth and very aromatic.
Really good light body with a delicious crisp feel and flavors of crackers, biscuits and noble hops.
This was a spot on pilsner. Wonderful lighter body and real crisp. It was a real good night capper.

Bottle poured into pilsener glass.
The nose is a subtle blend of biscuit, earth, and grass. Flavors of lemon, hops, and a hint of honey. Lightly sweet and floral at the outset, it morphs into a dry, hoppy finish that is excellent. Much more body than the typical Pilsener, it is full of carbonation that spritzes the tongue.
This is an excellent Pilsener: not anything overly fancy or overwhelming, but tremendously well balanced, refreshing, and nicely flavorful. A beer I could certainly enjoy again and again.
Thanks to OregonMonster for the trade!

22oz bottle into tulip pint.
Pours a clear, golden yellow with a fizzy, foamy white head.
Grassy hops and light cracker malt backing in both the aroma and taste. The hops are a bit more prominent in the nose, while the malt is the focal point in the taste.
Medium body, with average carbonation.
A good beer, but I was hoping for just a bit more complexity.
