Decent look for a pils I guess. See through with a white head and a very light golden color. Smells like a pilsner, bready and beery malts mixed with some noble type hops. There is more here when I take a swig, bready malts combat with slightly biting hops and it end slightly sweet then bitter. Drying finish and well carbonated on the mouthfeel. Overall this is a good take on the pilsner style.

Solid pils that pours pale straw colored with a touch of haze that settles out. Fluffy white head that doesn't rise as much as I expected. Smells of pale malts and grassy hops. Taste is light, baggutte-like breadyness graced by subtle peppery hop flavor. Sweet and bitter with good balance. Crisp and clean finish to this light-bodied refresher.

A really good Pils overall, but it's noticeably sweeter and fruitier than the North German Examples it tries to emulate.

Pours golden with a very small head. Aroma is of freshly cut grass and hay. Taste is fairly bitter but overall balanced Light bodied. A very enjoyable beer.

As good as an US Pils. Hard to tell them apart without a blind tasting. Great in summer.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with visible, persistent bubbles, and a thick sub finger head that doesnt last or lace much.

Smell: Noble hops with a fresh, sweet and citrusy aroma. Typical.

Taste: Starts with the sweet, citric, and lemony aspect and becomes crisp with a bright noble hop finish. Bright, ample.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, nicely carbonated, clean finish.

O: as good as the best such as Victory.
