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.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a sampler glass.

Appearance: Clear pale light straw color. Dies dow to a ring of foam. Little head or lacing.

Nose: Light bready malt. Slight floral hop presence.

Taste: Follows smell. More husky/bread like though.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, crisp, light, hoppy/carbonic acid bite on the finish.

Overall: Brewed to style, no real flaws, but no real flare. Comes of a bit uninspired...even for a pilsner.

This was served on a hot hot hot day in nola served cold in a pilsner glass at the bar
Color a bright yellow with rings forming nicely as I drank
A fruoty bitter finish and the aftertaste lingered but in a good way not very drinkable for sessions on a hot day too heavy but very good

Straw colored, light yellow and crystal clear in the glass. Small light white head and decent carbonation.

Nice aromatic nose. Good hop character in the aroma , floral notes.

Hop character is predominate in the taste with nice earthy tones. Crisp and tight flavors with nice balance with the malt

A nice drinkable beer, esp on a hot summer day in NOLA.

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 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.
