This brew pours with a light golden color and a nice foamy head that sticks around for a bit. The aroma is of crisp lightly toasted bready malt. The just heavier than medium body supports a delicate malt presence with a distinctly bready character to it. This is a smooth and refreshing recipe. With a mellow sweet finish. (325 characters)

Threes across the board on this one. Just average. It poured a clear golden with a thin head that dissipates quickly. The aroma was highly bitter and hoppy. This carried through into the flavor, which as it warmed, became more astringent. There are much better pils available. (281 characters)

Beer poured a nice gold color. Formed a nice white bubbly head that subsided and left some nice lace. An aroma of hops and lemon. It had a tast of hops and lemon. Light finish. An alright beer, but there are better pilsners out there. (240 characters)

Pretty lackluster brew considering who it comes from. Deep golden color with nice bubbly head.
Slight malt aromas. Some malt taste, but relatively nondescript, it needs more hops too. Pretty thin mouthfeel as well. Not offensive, but certainly not remarkable.

Had this out on the golf course today. Best thing they offered on the beverage cart. It was passable, but the way my game was going, I needed several big barleywines.

Drink this on a hot day, just to quench your thirst, otherwise, don't bother seeking this one. (537 characters)

Very pale color, frothy head. Thin in the mouth, very little taste one way or the other...Charged with bubbles like some macros. Malt flavors are pretty fleeting and faintly sweet and hops give a pretty ordinary bitterness. Should be very drinkable in warm weather. If this is brewed with a 1900 recipe, it may reflect the transition to an American Pilsner/Lager style that appeals to all types of nationalities, similar to what the macros did but, in this case, retaining good ingredients with a little corn for sweetness and because it was readily on hand. (558 characters)

Light gold color. Pleasant aroma that is primarily light malt. Product is advertised as being made with Alabama white corn grits. Fairly smooth light malt flavor with a mild dry finish. I believe this is an attempt to make a preprohibition style lager. (256 characters)
