Notes: With its light and mellow malts, this Pilsner is ultra crisp and super crushable. If you thirst for a flavorful brew that goes down smooth all year long, look no further than Montauk Pilsner.

Good clarity but not much for head. Nose is faint but floral. Decent balance, with a flavorful finish that brings some noble hop punch but also a slightly watery texture. This is solid in the style.

On-tap at Bowery Bay Tavern, LaGuardia Airport, East Elmhurst, NY

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of bready malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of bready malts along with a bit of associated sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This pilsener seems rather malty as it doesn't really have any bitterness compared to other beers in the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Looks is a hazy straw/gold. Frothy white head with small cubes streaming up. Nose is spicy, lemony, sweet. taste follows the nose. Pilsner malts, some hops but not aggressive enough for the bite I was looking for. Lemon, orange peel, cracker. Mouthfeel is light to medium and finishes on the dryer side. Not too bad. Good but far from great.

A can of Montauk Pilsner at refrigerator temperature poured into a "Saison Dupont" glass at the end of July, 2019. A six pack was given to me by my son's girlfriend.

A moderate head formed over a deep amber body. The head gradually dissipated to a thin white ring, and left no lacing. The mild aroma was beery, with some aromatic hops. Flavor is mild, with a slight bitter bite up front along with a faint sweet malt background. Bitterness disappeared after the swallow, leaving an aromatic hoppiness.

I prefer a pilsner with a bigger hop bitterness that extends to the aftertaste. This has a modern hop character that could be appealing to those looking for a milder (and possibly less alcoholic) brew for summertime sipping. I'll stick with Brooklyn Pilsner for favorite lager; Montauk sells my favorite pale ale, Driftwood.
