Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

Very clear, very light. Little head.

Sharp, pungent aroma. Slight skunk.

Nice malt and hop balance. Good crisp flavor. Clean finish.

Light bodied. Appropriate for style. Not overly carbonated.

This is a really decent pilsner. Something light, refreshing, and genuinely flavorful.

It poured a nice bright straw yellow colored body with a very little fizzy head that quickly vanished. The smell is and citrusy with some hop notes. The taste is crisp with some nice citrus notes and is well balanced with the malt. The mouth feel is nice and dry but a nice easy drinking beer. Overall not a huge flavor here but very drinkable.

The beer has a bright golden color. It also has brilliant clarity and good carbonation. The head is kinda weak in that much wasn't produced upon my pour. But what head I did get had good retention through out and left some spotty lacing.
Aroma was weak. Scents of spicy hops and bready malts.
Good tasting no doubt, bready malts up front with some light and spicy hops. maybe peppery.
Prickly on the palette smooth and a tad dry.
In my opinion the only thing bad about this thing is the name. The beer is quite good. Though I think it drinks more towards a kolsch.

12oz bottle purchased for $1.69 at Main Market Co-Op in Spokane. No freshness date to be found on the label or the bottle. It DOES state that this was “brewed with 2 varieties of hops and 2 types of malts,” but declines to name them. I was a little surprised by the stridently bright pink used on the label, but it certainly makes it stand out.

Poured a somewhat hazy, straw-gold color, with a white head that drops after a couple of minutes, leaving a foam ring.

Soft, floral hops and biscuity malts are detected by the ol’ factory. Very pilsner, or Pilz, -esque.

Tastes mildly hoppy to start with, and then is almost immediately matched by the malts. Ends with a crisp note. While not a flavor bomb, it captures the essence of what a pilsner should taste like.

Light bodied, yet with an almost creamy mouthfeel.

A good choice for a hot day, and it’s supposed to reach 97 degrees today. As I stated above, it’s not a flavor bomb, but pilsners aren’t supposed to be. I would definitely drink this again.

Pours a two-finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Crystal clear straw color - think urine. Light carbonation and light body. Nose is hay/grassy and flavor is grainy hay with a hoppy aftertaste. $2.10 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a hazy golden straw color with  a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Chunks and streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Slightly earthy aroma with hints of grass, straw and faint hops.  This is countered by pale malt, bread and sweet, light fruit notes, notably apple and pear.

Medium bodied but a touch fuller than expected with a delicate, crisp hop bite up front that lingers into a slightly dry finish.  Pale pilsner malt along with bready yeast, apple, pear and earthy hop notes.  Well balanced and refreshing but nothing out of the ordinary.

Serving type: on-tap

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

Pours a mostly clear golden straw color, thin cap of bubbles gone quickly. First whiffs brings notes of mineral water combined with grassy and lightly spicy hops. Not overly complex in taste either, strong mineral water notes bring damp earthyness and some metallic flavor, hops are grassy, earthy and lightly spicy. Suprisingly hefty for a pilsener, maybe a splash too much. Decent flavor, although not best to style.

It is rare for me to be buying bottled beer, so this purchase (and subsequent review) must have something to do with its name and its labeling.

From the bottle: "Brewed with 2 varieties of hops and 2 types of malts"; "Craft Revolution and an "Anarchy" A".

I got a finger-and-a-half of rocky, bone-white head from my aggro pour which evidenced low retention due to the humidity of the day. Color was a pale lemon-yellow with NE-quality clarity and lots of carbonation in evidence. This sissy was looking forward to this fizzy yellow beer. Ya heard, Greg Koch? Nose had a very pleasant lemon-citrusiness and my mouth was watering at the prospect. Mouthfeel was thinner than all of the carbonation had led me to expect, but the taste was like a lemon tart/muffin/biscuit as the hops really interacted well with the malt in the mouth. Finish was semi-dry and not just refreshing but welcomed in the increasing humidity of this summer afternoon. Quite good and worth having again.
