Pours a brilliant lemony straw with a frothy ivory head that lingers.

Grain, crackery malt, floral hops, and lemony citrus form the aroma. Citrus really sticks out.

Flavor reveals some citrus, as well, with earthy hops in the background finishing fairly bitter and crisp. Cracker-like malt ties the experience together. A tinny character surfaces late.

Body is a touch light, with fairly high carbonation.

Crisp and refreshing, though the citrus overpowers a bit. The finish is a little more bitter than I prefer.

I am really impressed by this pilsner. It ranks right with Foothills Torch as the best in NC. The smell and taste are classic pilsner with a nice dry finish.

Came in a standard pint glass a clear light golden with a lacy bone white head atop.A decent shot of peppery/herbal hops in the nose along with light toast.Mild sweetness with a touch of butter upfront on the palate then a nice drying herbal finish.A solid pils,I could drink quite a few of these in an afternoon.

Light pilsner color with a small white head, spotty lace, and a ring and thin sheet for retention. Aroma is lightly sweet, fresh grains, cracker malt, a little zesty, some floral hop, and a some buttered pizza dough. Flavor is dry with clean crisp malt, zesty floral hops, and nicely bready. A little bit of chewiness in the texture after the surge of dryness, with perky bitterness. Good pilsner!

Poured ice cold from the can into a Mason jar. It looks like lemon juice! It's cloudywith tiny rising bubbles to a thin quickly vanishing head. The scent is not very strong, a mix of grass and white bread. After this beginning, my expectations have dropped, but then, the taste hits. No date on the can, but this has to be very fresh. Not at all complex, this delivers a simple drinkability. Lightly bitter on the back end with a light mouth feel, this one is perfect for sharing with company at BBQ's on hot summer days.

Clear straw with a puffy white head that leave some quality sheeting behind on the glass as it drops. Spicy, floral hop aromas cover a simple, cracker-like malt profile. Flavor is crisp and grassy upfront with more of a traditional Pilsner malt flavor, though subtle, and some noticeable lager yeast. Hops are peppery and different than the Saaz you find in most Czech Pilseners, but certainly appropriate for the style (Tettnang is in that same general noble hop area). Light, dry, refreshing. This will be a good one to have on hand for the warmer months by the pool.

On-tap at Gibb's Hundred Brewing Co., Greensboro, NC

A: The beer is hazy pale light yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with just a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a thin, white collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts are present in the nose along with notes of crackers and biscuits.
T: The taste follows the smell and also has flavors of grainy malts along with a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of bitterness.
O: The pilsener isn't as bready and malty compared to other beers in the style but is easy to drink and could pair well with food.

Serving type: on-tap

Man, I used to love this style. It's been a while since I've tried a new one. Pours a standard gold color into my World Beer Festival (natch) pilsner glass. Not much for head. That's a touch disappointing. The nose is kind of underwhelming as well, with mushy bread malts and some light noble hopping that develops a little more spice and bite as it warms.

Unlike the nose, intensity of flavor is not the problem in the taste. Big, bold Saaz flavors, undercut by the biscuit malt. Some fruit tones appear early, before getting swept away by the hops. Decent mouth feel and texture. A relative lack of carbonation really helps expose you to the flavor, which is mostly a good thing. I got a heavy dose of metallic tinge in my first sip, but I either got used to it or it mostly went away in subsequent quaffs.

Interesting, and a little unbalanced, but definitely enough net positives to recommend to fans of the style.
