Aroma is pale malts and mild citrus and fruit. The flavor is pale/biscuit malts, fruit and a tangy/tart/dryish finish.

Pilsner complex, electrical, beautiful appearance and very white and lasting foam. A very particular American version of the bohemian pilsner

This is actually the worst beer I can remember drinking in recent memory - it is also one of those wonderful moments that clarifies that life is subjective, and what one might hate, another might love. I get the sense there is a beer, here, that someone might really dig - it just isn't me.

Nice color, nice body for a pilsner - but the finish, a sort of burnt, ashy, cooking yeast bloom, is nigh-unmanageable. And it lingers, like the ghost of a different, also-bad beer, long dead. That said, I know some folk who live by this kind of bitterness, so you may dig this beer...I have four more to soldier through, in my fridge, and I am NOT happy about it.

Very good, well above average pils. Even better at the brewery. Still has that handcrafted quality flavor to it, but Great Divide is getting very large so wonder if it will stay that way. Pretty color, darker yellow hues.. has a above average aroma to it. A must try for the pilsner fan.

Not my favorite from Great Divide, and not my favorite Pilsner. Still a beer that I would drink every now and then.

Pours clear pale golden straw yellow producing 2 fingers of clumpy, variously bubbled, somewhat lasting, white head that diminishes to islands of dense foam & patchy lacing. Aroma classic pilsner, crisp & dry, clean bready grain, lemon, grassy hops. Taste is grain/pale malt, cracker/biscuit, lemony, grassy noble hops, peppery finish with a heavy & lingering bitterness. Dry, clean & very drinkable. Very pleasant, but an overly bitter example of the style. But what the hell, I crave the bitterness of Noble (Saaz) hops & don't care.
