Pours light golden in color. Approximately a finger width head poured into a beer glass. Not a fan of this, reminds me of a bud lite with less carbonation, tastes like a Hamms. Does not taste like a Pilsner at all to me at least in the sense I am used to. Nothing special about this at all, and I can get cheaper beers that taste the same.

I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop beer glass. It's very light colored and clear with a one finger white head. It's a nice taste but I don't taste the apple that others taste. I'd prefer a bit more carbonation. I'd buy it again though. It would be a good summer beer and a good one to keep on hand for others who don't like their beers as chewy as I do.

I have read the other reviews about this beer and I am scratching my head. It almost seemed more like a light beer or light Ale than a Pilsner. My guess there are too many Ale drinkers rating this.

Twelve ounce bottle, can't find a date. Poured into pint glass. Yellow and lots of carb bubbles with tiny head. Smell is bread, apple and honey. Feel and taste are smooth, refreshing biscuit with apple. Good beer. Cheers!

A light, but clear, golden appearance with subtle carbonation. A one finger head, which dissipates quickly.

The smell has a lot of malt and sweet apple.

This very much tastes like a beery apple cider. The most unique flavor is of apple, with a distinct malt flavor in the background. The feel is quite light, which fits the style well.

All in all, I could see this being a very enjoyable summer beer. Despite being a lager, this has clear notes of both malt and apple. A pilsner with attitude, something which is surely lacking.

This is one of my favorite US-produced pilsners. Great all-malt body, crisp hop bite, but very drinkable on a hot day in July. Well balanced, and well done.

A good, if unremarkable, lager. Good for the deck on a warm afternoon. Easy to drink, very pale. It could use a little more carbonation.

This is a rather nice middle of the road Pilsner. I generally prefer a little more hoppiness, but this is really solid and balanced. A great summer tipple.

Hard to get excited about. Solid but unspectacular.
