this beer pours a clear light golden color with a tall white head that fades to a layer of lace. the aroma has a bit of light malt to it, without the promised hop backing. the flavor again provides a subtle malt, but little else. it's a clean crisp beer, but not my favorite style, an easy drink but not something i'd go out of my way for

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #54 (July 2011):

Looks like a Pils, all golden and clear. Smells like one too, with spicy herbal hops and some graininess. Smoothness is off the hook, though the flavor is more of an oily hoppiness that just doesn’t quite seem to fit, like a jigsaw piece that won’t work no matter how hard you try to cram it in. Maltiness is a little thin but gets by, while the oily hop keeps truckin’ along. Clean, dry finish without much besides the thin malt and oily hop. This beer begs for a bit more; it’s shallow in character, yet still an easy brew to knock back.

Pretty funny that with the success of the Sam Adams noble Pils Dundee releases a pilsner that happens to have a bright lime green label similar to the color used on the Sam Adams product. This one pours a pale bubbly straw golden hue with a bright white thicket of head forming chunky sporadic lacing. Aroma has a light cereal malt bill with hints of cooked veggies and a slight mineral water note. Also citrus/herbal hops are mild but evident. Price point is great 12.99 a 12 pack with a pale, kolsch, bock, and pilsner. I believe this beer replaces the porter at least during the warmer summer months. Again decent mix of flavor light refreshing nice for what it is, not the best end all of pilsnes but a solid offering from Dundee. Mouthfeel is light bodied with even but sturdy carbonation nothing cloying finishes mildly sweet with herbal/citric hops giving it a drying effect on the palate.

undated 12 oz bottle from a Dundee "Seasonal Variety Pack" served in a pint glass.
A: Light golden-amber with plenty of visible carbonation.
M: Crisp and lively feel with a medium body.
Good malt/hops balance for style. Hops are earthy and spicy, as expected.
O: a solid, if uninspired pilsner.

Into a pils glass, pours a clear pale straw color with a short soapy pure white head that left some real nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is grainy more than anything else. It doesn't have that dry cracker edge like most pils and more resembles an adjunct lager.

The taste is a bit odd. It does have a cracker like malt base with some grassy/peppery hops, like a traditional pils. There is also a more malty/doughy presence like a munich malt. Some light general fruitiness. Not too bad, decent flavor.

The feel is light but not watery with spritzy carbonation. Fairly dry, finishes clean.

Not a bad pils. Starts off a little odd but is true to the style. Seems like they uses some munich malt.

From bottle no. 09510-8:55 4W. Sampled on July 23, 2011. It pours straw yellow with a thin head that diminishes quickly to a ring. Lots of grain on the nose followed by a milder sensation of malts and an ever subtler sensation of European hops. The body isn't too bad and it is smooth and creamy. Bitterness is a bit off-medium on the taste with just a hint of hops at the end. On a hot day it might leave too much of an aftertaste and less refreshment. The label reads hazy and hoppy but it doesn't quite live up to either.

3.58/5  rDev +13.7%

A: Pale straw, bright and clear, multiple streams of bubbles rise to the small white head. Settles moderately fast, but leaves some pretty okay lace.

S: Grainy & touch doughy malts. Hint of sweetness more form fruity esters than from malts. Pear mostly. Faintly spicy noble hops. Sort of pilsner, but also sort of kolsch.

T: Fresh milled grainy pils malt. Hints of toasty & doughy. Very kolsch-like pear & white grape light fruity ester notes. Medium firm noble hops bitterness and character. Spicy & floral up front, grassy in the middle, and herbal on the backend.

M: Must under medium body. Carbonation is nicely matched & expansive in a softly creamy way. Crisp & refreshing with a balanced finish. Hop drying increases as consumed.

D: It looks the part, but lacks truly clean crispness in aroma and flavor. With fresh milled grain & fruit ester aspects, it is a bit like a kolsch in some ways. Actually, it is about as much a kolsch as their way fruity Kolsch offering in the same mix 12 pack. Regardless of style, it is a nice, pleasant, refreshing and easy drinking brew.
