Poured into my Pilsner Urquell glass, it's a pale yellow with a two finger white head that sticks around for quite a while. The smell, well it smells like a Pilsner to me. Taste is crisp, bready, grainy. I hope this is around here in the summer, I'll pick it up again.

Seem to have found a couple lagers recently that are very, very good. I compare this to the Fremont Pilsner that I rated highly and found this just to be a smidgen on the sweeter side. Very tasty and a great style example. Definitely recommend when you have the xhance.

This is a wonderful golden pilsner beer that is my favorite beer that I found at Grocery Outlet in LIncoln City, OR. It has the perfect hop taste for me, not too hoppy, a real drinkable beer when you are really thirsty and want to throw down a beer or two.

22 oz bottle no bottling info

Pours a clear yellow body with a white head of tiny bubbles . Plenty of retention in my Pilsner glass. Good lacing.

Right up front there is a slight hop presence of citrus and tropical fruits along with the typical grainy scent that one would expect from a pilsner. Overall scent is not very prominent

This hop presence fades a little bit in the taste but it's still there along with the grain and grass

Light medium feel with a nice finish is true to the pilsner style .Very enjoyable

Interesting take on a pilsner . More hoppy then a typical pilsner , so the scent and taste through me off a little... But the look and feel were100% pilsner. A great beer for after you mow the lawn.

Currently drinking this while watching Jurassic World at the Academy theater in Portland. Very refreshing and one of the most tasty pilsners I've had.

22oz bottle, part of my haul from the Bier Haus section of the Yoke's marketplace across from our hotel in Ponderay, Idaho a few weeks ago.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale golden straw colour, with four fingers of puffy, chunky, and somewhat creamy bone-white head, which leaves some streaky hoar frost lace around the glass as it evenly falls out of sight.

It smells of bready, grainy pale malt, white soup crackers, subtle apple and pear fruit notes, slightly edgy yeast, and peppy leafy, herbal, and rather floral hop bitters. The taste is grainy, semi-sweet bready pale malt, kind of past its prime lemon rind, indistinct pome fruit esters, a further wet white breakfast biscuit character, and an increasingly floral, herbal, and grassy hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly understated in its plain, workaday frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, a sort of clammy pithiness cutting into matters just a tad. It finishes off-dry, bready and softly biscuity, with some fading lemon tartness.

A mostly agreeable version of the style, the hops keeping a low, but still well supportive profile, with a varying maltiness that seems to make one have to take notes to keep up - wait, oh yeah. Anyways, easy enough to put back, and summery, sure, at the very least via its sunny label.
