Pours a lightly hazed golden yellow, little cap of white bubbles. Scent gives a breif hint of pils malts but has some moderate grassy and floral notes. Taste brings good solid pilsner malts and combined them with a lightly lemony and grassy hop profile. Light bodied, bubbly. Decent pilsner which retains some charachter of the style and isnt just the brew pubs light beer of choice for BMC drinkers.

The last of three beers I had while at the Brewery.

Poured from tap a nice golden yellow color with a rather small head maybe a quarter inch if even that. This was really a NOLA take on a Pilsner. I nice spicy hoppy pilsner with just a hint of sweet herbs, with just a touch of bitterness to the tongue. Goes down nice and smooth, and makes a great partner for a grilled checken sandwhich.

Gold/dark straw in color. Clear. Only negative is the lack of head. There is slight lace.

Thin aroma; crisp, little hop. No flaws.

This is a truly disappointing beer. The primary flavor is skunky; yet, it is from the tap. How is that possible? The body is about right, but the flavor is too distracting to give mouthfeel more than an average score.

Sorry, not a winner, best to avoid. Think Heinekin.

Dull pale yellow in color. Very thin head, no lacing. The aroma is tame as some light grass can be detected. The flavor is disappointing as the malt and bitterness levels are turned way down, as if to satisfy the tastebuds of the leading macros out there.

Slightly crisp and a very clean finish. Very light bodied. This is a very bland and "safe" beer brewed with the typical tourist in mind.

A: Pours a clear golden/yellow color. A large and rocky white head rises to two fingers with good retention. Light lace is left as the foam recedes.
S: Floral, grassy, and spicy hops. Some biscuit and buttery malt lingers. Some diacetyl that detracts a bit, but a miner consern.
T: Very crisp and clean. Floral, grassy, and a little spicy. A good malt presents. Very light diactle, buttery malt and biscuit. Soft, but very nice.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp, clean and refereshing. Very easy to drink. I can quaff several with no problem.

This is a very good lager. I really enjoyed this. Subtle, but very enjoyable. Perfect for the hot days in New Orleans.

The Pilsner was served in a large modified pilsner- hefe hybrid glass. The beer is bright gold with a slight chill haze. It has extremely active carbonation. 1" off white head some lacing. Not a bad looker.

Light floral aroma backed with grass and grains.

The taste is decent. It is a bit sweet with some backend bitterness. There is some floral notes and a hint of malts. This is a good crossover beer as any BMC fan won't feel to threatened. Still it works for me.

The mouth is well done and is very crisp. Yes, easy to drink, but it may not hold your attention for long.

Good light color for an pilsner.

Almost no aroma. Almost no flavor. Mouth feel like the water we were also served.

Part of my sampler at the brewery this was a mini version of the seasonal double pilsner I had and previously reviewed. Poured a nice golden color, very transparent, light white head that left no cap. The aroma was a little sweet with hints of corn and some spiced hops. The taste is a little thin but the flavor is nice with some spice and malt balance up front and a little bitter in the finish. Decent but the double pilsner was not as thin and was a better brew.
