This beer is a good beer. It has a sweetness taste to it. You can tell it is a pilsner. The golden color it has is a great look. I like the sweetness to this beer. It does not have an after taste like some beers have. It go`s down smooth. It does not have an after taste like some beers have. I liked this beer, I know that I would not mind having it again.

Pours a clear, gold color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, strong pale malt, hint of wheat, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, strong pale malt, slight wheat, and a hint of hop. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma and decent body.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a nice 1 finger head that leaves nice lacing in a 16 oz pub glass.
Smell is really nice. Orange, malts and a little pine hoppiness.
Taste is more hoppy than I expected. It is categorized as a German Pilsner but it has the hops of a pale ale, didn't see that coming.
Mouthfeel is good with a decent amount of carbonation.
Overall, not at all what I expected but still a good brew. Bottle says it started as a pilsner but ale yeast was added as a spare. Sounds like an experiment that went right.

12 ounce bottle -> pilsner flute
A - pours up a clear medium gold with a foamy two inch head, awesome retention, and incredible lacing. Beautiful beer!!!!
S - very weak nose, mostly grass and bread
T - honey like sweet malt profile with a pine flavored finish that is not horribly bitter. Well balanced between hops and malts.
M - a little thin, well carbonated
O - decent enough, well made, if unspectacular.

As the proprietor of my favorite beer store would say "Its a Pils"....big deal. Not an exciting beer style but a good "go to" in the summertime, especially for mass quantities. I had this one with bratwurst for dinner and it went down easy, if uneventfully.
Pours a slightly hazy dull gold color with a medium sized white head. Head retention is fair, lacing is thick and plentiful.
Mild grassy hops aroma, nothing exceptional. Taste is grassy hops (mild) with a slight floral hops presence and a little yeast flavor.
Mouthfeel is about average richness, somewhat crisp and light with no alcohol presence.
Overall, not a bad Pils but nothing I would seek out on my own.
