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.

Bottle label data: none noted

The body color is pale gold with a thick, creamy, lasting white head; stacks of foamy rings along the glass. Sweet, grassy, lemony aroma. Flavor reveals light cereal grains with a slight citrus character; excellent hop bitterness balance. Medium bodied; juicy; mostly dry finish.

A solid pilsner overall. Outstanding appearance and a very respectable flavor.

Dundee Pilsner brewed by Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. This brew has an ABV of 4.85% The pilsner pours out a nice amber color with a white head. There is a bitter sweetness in the smell of this this brew. You also pick up on some grains and malts in this brew. The smell is almost like apple cider. Not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste, it is rich with flavor. There is mild sweetness at the beginning, then a bold grain taste at the end. Dundee Pilsner has a nice balance to it. There is nothing over powering in this brew. The mouthfeel is full but, it is smooth. Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. did a nice job with one. I would buy this brew again.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, no "best by" date that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a crystal clear pale yellow with two-finger white head that dissipated slowly until a thin layer of bubbles remained throughout, medium carbonation, there is a good amount of lacing on the glass.

SMELL: sweet honey, bread, lemon grass.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet, light citrus then a nice light kiss of hops.

PALATE: light body, medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very drinkable beer that would offend no one, it does not set the world on fire but I enjoyed it, great price at $9.99 for a sampler 12 pack, for the price I would definitely but this again.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle, with some sort of bottling code on the bottleneck. Acquired as part of the variety twelve pack from the local Jewel.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a slightly murky golden yellow orange. One finger of frothy white head with decent staying power. Leaves some scattered spotty lacing. Looks good for what it is.

S - The aroma is grainy and lightly herbal / fruity. A bit of bready / crackery pilsner malt. Fairly basic, but appealing enough.

T - Taste follows the nose - fairly basic, but appealing enough. Bready, malty, and indistinctly fruity.

M - The feel is smooth, crisp, and clean. Light-bodied and easy drinking.

Overall, an average example of a pilsner from these guys, but it works well enough for me. Not something to seek out, but it would definitely be a nice beer to have if there are lesser options available.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Stella Artois goblet.

A: Nice clear, deep golden. 1 finger white head. Decent carbonation.
S: white bread. a bit yeasty. hint of spicyness from the noble hops.
T: Light saltine cracker malt. Hint of cinnamon from the hops. Sweetens as it goes down. Slight aftertaste.
M: Light bodied. Fizzy feel. Goes down pretty smooth.
O: Better than the regular domestic beers, with a bit of nice zest from the hops. Very sessionable and with a decent amount of flavor. Drinkability is through the roof.
