From the mixed 12 pack from Market Basket.
Brilliantly dark yellow color with a decent bubbly white head. Rich bready pilsner maltiness with faint floral spicy hops to counter. Clean and well made tasty beer.

Poured into a Waterford crystal pilsner glass. Excellent foam and lacing. Perfect color for this brew. Nice hoppy smell. Perfect summertime beer.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left delicate lacing on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops are present in the nose with hints of spicy hops.
T: The taste has flavors of bready malts and notes of floral and grassy hops; the hops are most noticeable towards the finish. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. This is a touch of dryness in the finish.
O: This pilsener is easy to drink and goes down easily.

Appearance - cloudy straw colored body with white head

Smell - Grain, cracker, bread

Taste - Grain, Cracker, Bread, grass, lemon zest, slight bit of sweetness

Mouthfeel - Medium Bodied, medium carbonation, slight sweetness upfront, hop bite and breadiness on the back end. Crisp and refreshing beer

Overall - pretty good stateside version of a pilsener. Von Trapp has yet to disappoint. Worth a try

Price Point - $1.99/12 oz single

Pours a light straw with a finger of head. The nose has the distinct essence of pilsner malt. This offering is hearty with a solid malt flavor and dry finish.

Not sure if it's true to style, but it's delicious, in a category that's not represented as well as big IPAs and whatnot. It resembles a quintessential "beer," like an Anchor Steam, even though there obviously isn't a singular representative of "beer." I like it better than Hofbräu Original, my traditional pilsner go-to, as well as the category-leading entry from Victory, which seems to try too hard for pilsner. I wish I could get it locally.

Cloudy pale yellow colored beer with a slowly fading head. Taste is lemon zest and spicy hops. A little more hoppy than I would have liked. I would rate this as average.

Pours a light golden yellow with good clarity, not much of a head. Grainy aroma with a hint of hops. Full bodied for a pilsner with a nice hop presence that fades to a crisp finish. Really an enjoyable Pilsner and easy to drink. A nice break from the IPA's that I usually drink.

Righteous. Really basically perfect actually. Translucent pale gold with thick white foam that lingers. Delightful grassy, herbal notes complement the light biscuity malt. Soft, clean, and pure with a dry finish. Abundant but gentle carbonation refreshes the palate with each sip. This is precisely what Pilsner is all about.
