L: Clear straw with a huge pillowy white head.

S: Lemon, pink grapefruit, pine needles, grass, honey, golden bread crust.

T: Lots of juicy lemon and pine grapefruit, a little bit of yellow grapefruit peel bitterness, white bread and honey in the middle. Grainy minerality with a touch of metallic bitterness. Finishes clean and lightly bitter with residual grassy notes.

F: Could stand a little bit more carbonation, but light and easily sluggable. Crisp and refreshing.

O: A solid pilsners that tastes like it uses American C hops. Comparable to Founders PC Pils.

I don't know if I got the best batch made or what, cuz this is one hell of an American pilsner! Bright and clear straw color with a fluffy white head, bursting with citrus orange and grapefruit aromas. Flavor is semi sweet, a bit buttery, and full of that same citrus. Fresh, clean and balanced feel with a light, juicy, yet dry and mild bitter finish. So easy to guzzle down. This is a great light beer that will gladly occupy fridge real estate. Cheers!

I found this beer on sale at my local grocery store. Being a fan of pilsner I thought I would check out the reviews and I decided to get a 12 pack.

After drinking my first one, I wonder if I am tasting the same beer the other reviewers tried.

The beer had a very bready/lemon smell.

It poured a pale yellow with a thick foamy head.

The first taste I was expecting a typical pilsner with a slightly bitter taste, clean finish and no lingering after taste.

What I got was something that tasted a lot like an IPA. Very hoppy with a grassy aftertaste that stays with you long after you finish the beer.

I don't care for IPA, that's why I stick to mostly lagers. This beer definitely dissapointed me and I have 11 more of them I'm not sure what to do with. I guess I will invite some friends over.

A: Pale yellow, slightly hazy with a large white head.

S: Lots of hop character, but that isn't surprising form something labeled dry hopped. Grapefruit and orange peel.

T: Taste follows, orange peel, and grapefruit hops, perhaps with a touch of pine in the finish. Grain character is light, and otherwise it is a pretty clean tasting brew.. Almost a little humdrum.

M: Light and crisp, with moderate to high carbonation, some cling in the finish.

O: Good, but nothing really calls out as pilsner to me.. this could just be a clean IPA.
