Clear yellow colored beer with a tall white head. A little disappointing expected at least a golden color.

Smell is grain and sharp noble hops. Scents of saffron, hay, flowers and minerals. Smells spicy with a nice fresh biscuit malt aroma.

Starts out biscuits and caramel with a mineral water flavor. Hard water and hops gets less sweet as you drink it. Bitter, herbal and even a little soapy.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty beer I would drink more often if it didn't cost so much.

Clever name! And it's a pils! Yayy!

Pours a crisp golden yellow with a small white head into my glass. Very much a pils.

Crisp malt that's bready with a good touch of hops in the nose. Grainy too.

A wall of grainy, crisp malt with a mild hop bite that compliments the malt. Balanced and full of flavor at 6%.

Lingering crisp, grainy malt and hops make up the mouthfeel. Carbonation level is perfect.

I really like this. I wish Rogue had a standard pils because this would fit the bill perfectly!

Poured into a pilsner glass a rather hazed straw-yellow with a thick and dense cap of pure white head.

The first aromas I got from the brew were those of sharp citrus-like notes and a simple but pleasant cereal grain sweetness.

The hops were on the forefront of this beer, for me. Slightly bitter, peppery, maybe grassy notes from the hops were balanced quite well by the sweet malty backbone. The carbonation gave the brew a prickly and grainy texture.

Would drink again.

Rogue First Growth Good Chit Pilsner

Appearance: straw yellow, large head, and good lacing.

Smell: apples, nice grain, and slight malt.

Taste: good apple, grain, and faint hop.

Mouthfeel: medium-light and full flavored.

This is a really nice pilsner. The apple flavor complements the grain and hops which are right behind.

Poured into a pilsener glass. A solid three fingers of head on top a hazy, golden body. It's beautiful with the bubbles coming up.

It smells like wet barley, like a field just rained on.

Biting bitterness up front that holds on to the end. A balance of sweet malt comes in but can't hold up to the hops. Really good flavor, impossible to ignore.

Crisp and medium body, moderate carbonation.

An excellent pilsner that you can't go wrong with.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a pale yellow with a slight haze. Two fingers of head dissipates to a thin foamy cloud that covers the entire top and clings all the way down.

S: Not as aromatic as I expected, catching bready malts with a slight hint of tart and some floral hops.

T: Some of that bready malt up front, with a hint of citrus, goes right to hoppy bitterness. Kind of bland, not overly impressed, there really isn't much going on here either.

M: Average carbonation works with the bitterness, leaves a creamy taste in your mouth.

O: Surprised, I was expecting more flavor from this, instead I just got a bland bitterness.

It should be noted I'm drinking this at near room temperature.

Appearance - Pours a clear, golden yellow. For a pilsner, it's the most impressive head I've seen. 2 fingers thick, excellent retention, and the lace is spotty but semi-sticky.

Smell - Tart, green apples. a touch of spice.

Taste - Tart, with grassy hop notes. A touch of citrus. A touch of spice. Beautiful complexity, especially considering it's style.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Crsip. Clean. Beautiful.

Overall - Yeah, this is everything Rogue's Kells promises, but fails to deliver. This is a pilsner to be revered. Almost ale-like in it's complexity and deepness. By far my favorite 'bottom fermenting' beer. I encourage you, drink it only a touch chilled. You won't regret it.

Chatoe First Growth Good Chit Pilsner
Rogue Ales
Style: Czech Pilsener
ABV: 6.00 %

LOOK: Pale yellow color, fair clarity, bone white soapy head forms and leaves plenty of lacing.

SMELL: Lager yeast, very bready malts, and herbal hop notes all emit from the glass. Smells like an import pils.

TASTE: Bready malts upfront, with a solid dose of leafy hop flavor. Herbs, earthy pine and resin flavors all pull through from the hops. Slight buttery note, a byproduct of lager yeast.

FEEL: Light bodied, crisp, carbonation at a high medium.

OVERALL: This is good Chhhit. A very serviceable pilsner that tastes much like an import. Would go just fine with many seafood dishes as well as some Asian entrees.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Somewhat typical of a pilsner, bright golden, small foamy white head, lot of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass.

S: Lemony, slight citrus hop character behind it, semi-floral. Smells quite sweet with a good tartness behind it.

T: Really get a lot of lime flavors initially, goes into some earthy notes as well with some breadiness lingering at the end

M: Very creamy with a nice citrus bite

Overall this was quite nice. I usually don't really go for pilsners too much, but I'm glad I took the chance on this one.
