3.43/5  rDev +0.9%

A- golden translucent color, poured with a nice head that settled quickly.

S- clean, crisp smell, some fruity/soft notes to it slight smell of hops

T- very basic pilsner taste to it

M- best part of this beer, very balanced carbonation, light-bodied, very clean crisp finish

D- very drinkable,nothing too extraordinary, but it would probably would serve as a good "gateway" into craft beer.

This beer poured a light yellow with some pastelish yellow overtones. It had a slight murkiness to it and a medium carbonation.
This beer smelled like pale biscuity malts and a slight touch of noble hops. That's pretty much it because the beer was pretty subdued.
This beer had a slight musty caracter to it. But on the flavor, it was a pretty unique maltiness along with a pure noble hopiness. All of the flavors were kind of shining together. The hops were definitely not dominant. The malt however did'nt really match to my liking. It had almost more of a raw graniness intead of a biscuity quality. An Okay beer but this brewery has better offerings.

On with the Wagner tastings. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Perfect crystal clear pilsner appearance, maybe a hint darker than normal, with a perfect white head. Smell was typical of the style and unremarkable.

Taste-wise, Wagner nailed this one. Nice crisp taste, with none of the bitter aftertaste you get from some other pilsner attempts. No adjunct funk or anything like that. Just a perfect example of the style, and very very drinkable.

Along with the hefeweisen and the Sled Dock dopplebock, this is the best that this brewery has to offer. Run with it.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass.

A- Light copper with a light white head of that did not last long.

S- Nice combo of citrus and bisquit.

T- The sweet bisquit taste is first and foremost in this beer.

M- This beer is very, very light with not alot of body. That works well in the summer as a session beer, but may come up short in the other seasons.

D- This beer is not really for me. I had no real problems with it, but I would not rush out and grab it.

Poured pale amber with a creamy white head. The bottle says I'm going to smell Sazz hops -- I smell caramel and honey maltyness, with hops in the background. I taste a lot of malt too. This is a good beer, but it looks, smells and tastes like a light American Pale Ale, not a Pilsner.

Poured a light copper hue with a one finger pillowy white head. There was very good retention and sticky lacing.

The smell featured a very nice spicy noble hop and a rich doughy grain. Light touch of soft caramel malt.

The taste consisted of a solid upfront spicy and piney noble hop followed by a full blown grainy biscuit. A very nice full flavor.

The mouthfeel was full and slightly creamy.

Overall a very good pils that is easy to drink and with enough body to satisfy the on-pils crowd.

On tap at the Consumer's growler station in Orchard Park,poured into a pilsner glass a medium clear gold with good spritzy carbonation a thinner wispy white head atop leaving some broken lace.Cleaner in the nose a slight toastiness and a hint of herbal hop and mineral,somewhat full bodied I thought with pretty full flavors somewhat toasted with notes of melon and mineral finishing with a noticable "green" herbalness from the hops imparted.A fine pilsner in my mind and it went well with my mother in laws rouland and spaetzle tonight.

2.8/5  rDev -17.6%

12oz. bottle: This one pours a clear, lighter amber color. There was a small off white head that drops off rather quickly. The aroma is a bit weak, but I get some grapefruit out of it and not too much else. The taste is rather uninspiring. Somewhat metallic, with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Definitely not as good as some of their other offerings.

3.05/5  rDev -10.3%

Appearance: strangely hazy golden yellow color. Very thick 2+" head creates some modest lacing through the drink. Loads of tiny carbonation bubbles.

Smell: a very soft citrus tone is the only detectable aroma.

Taste: the flavor has a grainy maltiness to it, but is too strong on tart lemon and grapefruit tones. Generally dry grassiness with a decent spicy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: crisp at the start and finish. The finish is long on the tart citrus flavors and is dry. Lighter in body.

Drinkability: very average as this just doesn't excite me. It is lacking the refreshing qualities a simple pilsner should have.

The beer pours a gold color with a thick frothy white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a nice pale malt scent with a wonderful Saaz hop aroma. The taste is decent. It is light and full of pale malts. It has a nice hop flavor and a dry lager yeast finish. The mouthfeel is good. It is a low bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a fine pilsner. It is light and highly drinkable with good flavor and mouthfeel.
