Not a bad pils with quite a dry hoppy finish which sets it apart from many craft lagers which tend to be sweeter. Not on the same level as prima pils but decent enough to drink when the weather gets warm. Much prefer the stein beer as a lager from these guys

A - Poured a cloud, golden/yellow color with a foamy, white, two-finger head. No lacing.

S - It smelled of grains and floral notes. Also, a sweet fruity aroma.

T - It tasted fairly sweet with some grassy hops that added s subtle bitter kick.

M - It was sharp and crisp. A light-bodied beer.

D - This is a nice sessionable, easy drinking lager.

Reviewed from notes taken at a cask party.

This particular cask had a placard in front of it claiming that it had been dry-hopped, but did not go so far as to explain with what variety of hops. The server on duty at the time did not know either.

Poured out a rather clouded golden straw color with a fizzy single finger of evaporating head (room temp cask) and no lacing at all, but the aroma was absolutely filled with a combination of white pear juice and fresh grassy herbals over the top of a crackery malt. Oh man did it ever smell like it was going to be an sweeter German Pilsner, but it really surprised me by presenting a standard dry Czech pilsner flavor through and through. The finish was clean and crisp, and the refreshingly carbonated lighter body was absolutely true to style. It's just that...it smelled like a sweeter German Pilsner yet tasted like a drier Czech Pilsner. And while I would normally knock a lot of points off my review for false style advertising, the image of the bottle shown above merely has the world "pilsner" alone on the label, a legal loophole in my self-imposed criteria!

So I therefore tentatively recommend trying this one if you are curious about what the two styles of pilsner would taste like blended together. Its weird, but weirdness does not necessarily equal badness in this case.

A different representation of the Pilsner style, more American than German, due to its medium amount of alcohol and little bitterness.

Poured a dark straw color into a tall pilsner glass, with 1 inch head hanging around a while with very little lacing.

Smelled grainy and fresh and was crisp and smooth to drink, with more of a malt character than hop.

Drinkable and thirst quenching, leaving me ready for more. Far surpasses other American brewed pilsners in its fuller body.

Wildly different from other Pils, more body, more odd flavors, I opened an IPA for my family and this for me wanting a light brew, and for a moment, I didnt know what I was drinking. But then, malty, bready, crackerly brew got to me and I enjoyed it. 100% agree w reviewer who said "turn it into a BLONDE ALE", that's more what it is.

A - Pours a slight hazed, golden/yellow color with a foamy, two-finger white head. No lacing.

S - Subtle, not much here, but smells of grains and sweet floral notes.

T - It tasted fairly sweet, lots of bread. Was very good with cheese and mozzarella tomatoes with basil. Would be good with salad and as a pre-dinner beer, which was the case tonight. Included light grassy hops that made the finish nice.

M -Not right for a pils, more medium weight body. But I liked it, just change the style please.

O - I'd drink another. Might want to try. Reviewers overly ding this beer for being off-style, but it's a nice middle of the road blonde ale with an appetizing finish.

It's original, not cliché.
