Impressive, lasting white head. Good webby lace between the sip rings. The liquid is dusty gold with a mild haze.

There's an unexpected sourness to the nose. I don't get any of the softer malts or aromatic noble hops.

The flavor is similar to the smell. There's also a strong, biting hop bitterness. Good body, higher than typical carbonation. Long aftertaste, particularly for the purported style.

I absolutely love this beer. To me this is what a beer should be, crisp & clean but still has some flavor to it.

Pours a clear straw color with a white head. Lots of lacing and bubbles. Smells of cracker-y malt and floral hops. Taste is clean grain, a bit of earthiness, and a bitterness throughout. Bit of an unpleasant sour aftertaste. Well carbonated, light bodied, and dry. Easy drinking but not the best tasting pilsner

Golden pale yellow in color. Classic looking. Grassy, toasted pilsner malt and noble hop earthiness. Clean grain, shorter finish. Some lingering bitterness. Decent, easy drinking pilsner.

Poured a light clear golden color with a 2F head in a Pilsner glass.
Carbonation bubbles from the bottom of the glass.

Faint aroma, much lighter than usual from a Czech pils.
Light fruit, malt.

MF: quite nice. Lightly carbonated, zesty, not overdone,
Lighter than other beers in the style, and very enjoyable.

Taste: fruit and malt. Very enjoyable especially with warming.

Overall: quite drinkable and good approach to a Czech Pilsner.
I would have liked a stronger aroma, otherwise, the beer is worth checking out.

On tap at the Tilted Kilt in Nashua, NH on January 21, 2017.

It almost had a Nitro look to it with its foamy white head, pale yellow color with cram colored streams at the start.

Nice aroma of toasted white bread, crackers, and a faint grassy hop profile.

The body was light but quite smooth...again, like a Nitro.

The grassy hops step forward a bit more in the taste, which was also toasty and sweet. A nice Pilsener.

re-visited 3/16/17. 12 oz. Can notated with *
Monster go-to from the brewery can. 32 oz. Beast.
Totally clear, pale gold, bubbly, minimal white top.* A rather large, fluffy white cap hold on tight.
Perfect, herbal, funky, yeast based effect. Rice, wheat, herbal hop deal style aroma.* Very classic aromatatics, bready and buttery malt, big herbs and spices from traditional German hops.

Incredibly clean, smooth, snappy thing, feel and flavor. Subtle fruit, zesty, herbal hops and yeast. Amazing flavor balance, grassy, dry and tangy finish.
A classic Pilz , traditional and rather complex. Just right for gameday.

found this offering by chance at local store bought a six and was pleasantly surprised with its drinkability I really like a good pilsner and can't find enough of them went back and bought all they had now I don't care about what notes or nose it has or have yet to pour it into a glass all I know is I like the way it goes down well balanced not over hopped nice and crisp very satisfying when having one after work or pouring a few back while kicking around the garage or grilling I really like this beer and hope I can find more when I want it
