Got this beer on draft (40% nitro). Has a decent collar and a cloudy golden yellow pilsner hue. The nose is light hops. First sip was a pleasant surprise, very hop forward with a malty backbone, feels more like an IPL than a pilsner. A bit viscous for my taste but the more I drank, the more I liked it and enjoyed its complexity. It also has beautiful lacing. The finish is definitely the bite of the hops. I don't like pilsners and I'm not a huge fan of IPL's but this beer is worth trying for its take on the style! Loved it.

Poured out a clear, golden-yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of floral notes, caramel and grains. Sweet with a little hoppy heat. Slightly bitter.

All I know is that I like this beer. The hops were not over the top as I don't care for real hoppy beers. I enjoyed this one and look forward to drinking the rest if the 6 pack.

Pours a lovely clear gold with a foamy white head and lots of lace.
Aroma is cracker, spice, slight lemon and a touch of grassiness.
Taste is hop forward with spice, citrus and a touch of pine. Crackery malt with a finishing, bitter bite.
Mouth is medium and bubbly.

This interpretation of the Pilsener style is one I prefer.
Because Czech Pils tend to be too hoppier, I usually don't like the bitterness as their lager finishes.
But... Super Pils -- categorized in BA's German tradition -- finds the balance. To me, the mouth was pleasantly smooth and the 7.2% maltiness helped, too.

Full disclosure: Randy Mosher, one of the Deans of craft brewing, is a partner in this firm. This explains my Overall "buy" rating.

Hazy yellow. Aroma is wet grain and very ripe fruit. Flavor is similar to nose. I'm not too keen on pilsner's that lean on the sweet side. This beer isn't for me.

A - Nice golden colour, bright, soapy white head. Mild carbonation. Nice thick lace and good retention at a half finger.

S - Herby, noble, floral.

T - Grassy and light with some honey notes and some herbal qualities.

M - Nice bite to finish. Good medium body and good carbonation.

O/D - ABV hides itself well. Flavourful and classic. Nice pils.

I'm normally very disappointed with a pils brew. I read a compelling review and was in abar that carried it. It's also very close to the bar I'm in. It was bright fresh fruity refreshing, not flavors I normally seek. Will definitely look for again.
