Bright floral aroma and pale, fading head. A cloudy lace covers the golden brew. The flavor is simple with a short, sharp carbination and sweet malt balanced with tart hops. With a little cream flavor and a touch of bitterness, this is a tasty brew. Perhaps a bit sweet for a pilsner, but really an interesting beer.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

Pale golden, bubbly lager with a thin and rapidly dissipating white head.

Aroma is sickeningly sweet malt and sweaty wheat like malt. Almost no hops aside from a touch of grass.

Taste is cloying and candylike in a sweet-tart kind of way. Bready.

Mouthfeel: Aggressively carbonated but way too sweet and unbalanced. Not pils like in any way, shape, or form.

Drinkbaility: Low. This is just too sweet with almost no hop presence.

Thanks to busternuggz for sharing this one.

Pale golden in color with a serious lack of bubbles. Light corn in the aroma with a pleasing grassy hop note. The soft mouthfeel could be crispened up for refreshment purposes. A little corny in the taste with a mild bitterness. I'm not crazy about the aftertaste. All that in mind, it's not horrible and I would drink several of these outside on a hot day.

Very ordinary pils, summer or otherwise. Grainy and boring flavor with a little DMS, non-existent hops flavor. Could easily close my eyes and convince myself it was a Shiner. OK, that was too harsh because it's made well enough...just not very interesting.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some bready malt. The flavor is hoppy, but the bread/toffee malt make the beer very well balanced. There is some grassyness in the flavor from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice, easy drinking balanced pilsner. Nothing too exciting, but a good beer to drink the hot months.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden with a slight haze, thin white head that lingered, no lacing on the glass.

Smell: Mild Malts, hops, and maybe banana.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of mild bitter hops and some grassy earthy notes.

Overall: This was an ok brew.

Pours pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet malt and floral hops. Taste is malty balanced with a nice noticeable hop biterness. Crisp and clean with a medium light mouthfeel. Carbonation is very prominant. Very drinkable, this is a great warm weather beer.

Poured into a pint glass a golden straw color with a bubbly white head. Smells of a wheaty straw with hop fruits. Taste has a nice bite to it. Not so much a hop bite as much of a carbonated one. Aftertaste of noble hops and fruit notes. This is a very drinkable pils. I'm not much of a fan of the Pils because of the bitterness that is usually a trate, but this is a rather smooth Pils that makes it a easy drink.

(Served in a pokal)
thanks to mhewes for this brew.
A- This beer pours a crystal clear body of golden yellow with a swirl of tiny bubbles supporting a lumpy snow white head for a few sips.

S- The soft smell of fresh rain turns into raw grain with a very light sweetness to it. A soft sulfury gummi candy quality comes through the sweetness followed by a light musty green hop hint at the finish.

T- The flavor of pale malt and raw grain has a faint saltiness to it and a slightly sweet hint aswell. There is a light piney note of soft green that lingers becoming more bitter after the sip has ended.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a soft tight fizz note coming through as the beer warms.

D- This nice soft flavors are accented, not overpowered by, sulfury lager qualities, and there is a nice complexity and dry flavor that increases a bit as the beer warms slightly. This is a well built beer.
