look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours an effervescent straw color with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Slightly cloudy , nice head retention & lacing

S: Bready, crackery & soapy

T: Follows the nose, plus leafy hops up front. Flinty dryness, leafy hops & soapiness as this warms, some yeastiness. Finishes dry, soapy with some chalkiness & leafy hops

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, alright balance

This isn't really working for me, probably the liberty hops. Just not a very good pils, not terrible, almost tastes stale. Drinks okay, not easy. I grow more skeptical of Rogue with each new beer I try, so many dissapointments, so few good ones

22oz bottle, unclear bottling date. Thanks Shaun. Poured into a TG snifter today, 3/20/2014.

App- Slighty hazy straw-yellow body, minimal one finger white head that dissipates quickly. Looks refreshing. Some spots of lacing but otherwise not a ton.

Smell- First thing that comes to mind is tart. A lemon zesty tartness that made me immediately wonder if this beer was infected. But otherwise it fades as it warms, with a nice dank noble hoppiness and breadiness.

Flavour- Bready, noble hops, otherwise forgettable. Solid pilsner flavour that would work well on a hot summer day rather than a winter day like this.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, a bit more fuller bodied than the European examples. Good carbonation. Easy to drink and not particularly bitter.

Overall- Decent American take on the Czech pilsner style, a bit different than what I'm accustomed to. Decent pricing as well, $5 for a bomber. Not the worst in any criteria you can use for this beer.

Good Chit Pilsener pours a clear golden color, lots of carbonation, and with a nice long lasting lacing head. The smell is rather weak, and slightly offensive, reminds me of road kill. The taste however is very crisp, and has a good malty spike to it. Good full flavor, very crisp and refreshing. Overall a nice malty pils.

I feel this could have been a bit better, but not too bad for an American pils. Average crackery aroma and taste, veru grainy, not enough snap in the hops. Decent body and finish, nice pour

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Pours a nearly clear straw yellow with a half finger fizzy white head. Not very good head retention and no lacing to speak of.

There is bread and a little bit of biscuit in the aroma with a heavy hint of grassy hops.

There is a bit more malt in the flavor than I was expecting with caramel and biscuit. Grass and hay make up the hop flavor along with an assertive bitterness. It ends with some lingering sweetness and is moderately sticky.

Overall, an ok pils but far from my favorite. Glad I got to try but it won't become a regular.

On tap in Asheville.
Looks light a light lager with a small but durable head.
The aroma and flavor reflect a delicate, rather light pilsner. Nicely clean and refreshing. Longer lasting hop finish than expected. Light body but not watery. A little dry in the finish.

Serviceable drinkable pilsner. A little farm grown aroma to go with floral notes. Long lasting creamy white head on light yellow. Middle mouthfeel. Hits the mark in style, and at least an average beer.Assertive carbonation. Hops are significant, as is the taste of hay (not that I didn't like it).

22 picked up tonight at the Boise COOP.. The pour is beautiful... very pale golden/yellow... great 2-3 finger white head shows tons of lacing and retention.

Nose shows a decent Czech style pils with a pronounced pale malt and a slightly spicy/maybe even flora hop note.. but there is far too much DMS in the nose.. pretty corny with warmth.... I enjoyed it much more when cold.

Flavor has a good malt balanced by a decent hop bitterness... the hops form mid palate and finish a bit lite. Again there is an offputting corniness that I am getting that lingers and lingers..

Body and carbonation are both close to perfect.... but when it warms up, the corn comes out... drink it cold.. otherwise, it is getting close to a drain pour for me.

I would be amazed if a lager yeast was used on this one... it seems more like a "steam" yeast that got too warm.

Despite my above complaints.. it is very drinkable and surprisingly so for 6% .. but I doubt I will buy this batch again.

4.5/3.5/3/4.5/3.5

Edit: My wife had a pint of this at Bitter Creek tonight and I had a few sips and still stand by my review.

On tap at flying goat

A: yellow straw with excellent clarity and spotty lace.
S: grain, slightest of old world hops. Vert subtle overall.
T: sweet grain and bitty touches of tannin. A little estery.
M: thin with smooth carb. This is spot on.
O: good example of the style. Seems a hare dry on the flavor, but otherwise good pilsner.
