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.

I've said before that I'm not impressed with Dundee, it holds true here. There pilsner, was, however, less offensive and really just bland. Not a whole lot of clean herbal flavor, which I like in a pilsner. Somewhat watered down and too sweet. Nice carbonation, however, and rather refreshing. Easy to drink, but not really worth drinking. More of a pale adjunct lager in most regards.

12oz bottle kindly gifted - thanks Dave - poured into conical pint glass

Straw colored, wispy, rapidly dissipating white head, moderate carbonation apparent

Very clean aroma: mineral water, white bread, soda crackers; if I'm not imagining, a glimmer of noble hops. Good pils smell.

Slightly sweet up front. Quality pils malt, mingled with a very pleasant floral and herbaceous hoppy flavor and moderate bitterness. I wish it finished (and even started) somewhat dryer, though.

Good drinkable mouthfeel, not too thick or thin, gets the job done. The excessive sweetness gives a slightly "sticky" impression on the finish, though.

Overall a very solid European-style pilsner, exceptionally clean and distinct flavors, just could use a bit more dryness especially in the finish.
