On tap at Croxley's Ale House in Smithtown NY on 5/1 - pours clear gold color with a small white head that faded on the fast side and left good lacing. Smells of sweet malt or grains, caramel, light citrus hops, grass and some earthy notes; basic as expected. Tastes like it smells with sweet malt, toasted, grains, caramel, wheat bread, citrus hops, grass, a slight funk and some earthy notes with mild floral notes; on the sweeter side but a nice drinkable pilsner. Mouthfeel is slick and creamy with a medium body for a pilsner, light carbonation and a sweet malty finish. A nice easy drinking sessionable brew that wasn't exciting, but on par for the style

From 11/27/13 notes. On tap at Pony Bar HK in NYC. 14 oz. pour in a pint glass.

a - Pours a somewhat clear golden color with one finger of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, soap, bready malts, wheat, and earthy malts. Twinge of soap-like qualities in the nose, brings it down a bit.

t - Tastes same as the nose but no soap at all. Tastes of grains, bready malts wheat, earthy malts, and dough. Not too much going on, but decent.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Smooth, and very easy to drink.

o - Overall a decent pilsner, though the nose smelt a little odd. Easy to drink, just not a ton going on here; probably wouldn't seek it out again.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts are present in the nose along with notes of floral and grassy hops.
T: The taste very much follows the smell, except that the grassy hop flavors are a little more prominent and there also is slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and clean on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but doesn't really match up to the top examples of the style.

Served on-tap at The Gingerman in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some very dark golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall fluffy white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of thin head, a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of cereal grain and bready malts. Light to moderate aromas of herbal and grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate to strong flavor of cereal grain and bready malts that have just a touch of honey like sweetness. That is followed by lighter flavors of herbal, spicy, and grassy hops. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with a light to moderate amount of carbonation. Slightly crisp.

O: Enjoyable and easy to drink but not a stand out beer in the style. Refreshing.

Had a pint at Queens Kickshaw with lunch. Nice pairing for a grilled cheese sandwich. The hops remind me a bit of Victory's Prima Pils, but this lager is more balanced and where I'd sometimes feel like the hops were too rich to enjoy, I can pick apart the grassy, earth citrus notes. There's a mild, soft bready backbone and an light enough body to make me consider ordering another round or two. Check it out if you can.
