Good looking. Clear, gold and white top. Soft aroma with soft malt (not grainy) a little yeast and very soft hops.
Flavor is hop dominant. Malt is background. Herbal spice hop flavor and bitterness is rather subdued compared to many. It's there but it blends with the hop flavors quite nicely. Nice carbonic bite lending a crispness.
Clean, crisp, good hops. NIce.

4/21/18...brilliant bright gold, see through, almost clear. Touches of white foam. Heavy citrus infused pils nose. Lemons. Sharp bitter open, then slides into a citrus filled malt. Light bodied, some tart chewiness in the close. Heavy taste, light bodied.

L: Pours a brilliant cleat straw yellow with a creamy white head and lacing all around the glass.

S: Toasted grain and bread, light mineral note, very light citrus fruit, aroma isn't the strongest.

T: Toasted bread and grain, sweet cereal malt, some sweet citrus and pine from the hops, quite a strong bitterness for a pils. Feels overly bitter for a pilsener.

F: Medium body and clean fermentation.

O: This is a nice beer, however it is a lot hopper than I like my pilseners.

Appearance: Clean golden, with a thick and creamy head of white foam. Web of lace.

Aroma: Toasty malts with a hint of sweet fruity hops.

Taste: Ideal balance of malty sweet and hoppy bitterness, with some spice. Hoppy enough to appeal to modern American craft drinkers, but light and dry enough for any day. Applaud this one.

What took me so long to try this? Maybe the pilsner just wasn't catching my eye. However, this is a fantastic pilsner, hoppy and dry with no off putting flavors or being too grainy. It's near perfection. Sits up there with Prima Pils, for sure.

Pivo Pils pours a golden color, with not much head. Nice crisp yet creamy malty aroma. Flavor is nice and full, good crisp and creamy malty notes. Good body and feel. Overall, a very solid no frills German pils.

This beer pours a clear gold with a solid head. The aroma is crisp, with solid biscuit malts, black pepper, orange peel, toasted almonds, mild cinnamon, and a sharp, high note I have trouble identifying. The flavor leads with full, biscuit and brand muffin malts, with black pepper, clove, anise, and a slightly woodiness, and just enough bitterness to balance. The mouthfeel is light and very crisp, with bold fizzing carbonation. Overall this is an excellent pils - so crisp, malt driven, with just enough bitterness to make it quite moreish. This is going down quick.

Looks, smells, and tastes like a pils, but without any subtlety. Far too hop forward and bitter. Typical West or East coast type of effort for the style. It is dry and clean which I applaud.

Very fresh can 04/05. Pours a clear yellow color with a very small white head. Smell had cereal,grain and biscuit with floral hops. Taste followed the nose with a good dose of floral hops. Mouth feel was crips and very dry and bitter in the finish and was under carbonated. Taste was good on this but this is a Pils i wont be looking for again.

Pours crystal clear bright yellow with a pillow of white head that recedes quickly and leaves minimal lacing. The aroma is corn, bread, and floral hops. The flavor follows the nose and some European hops join in. The feel is crisp and light. An average pilsner.
