Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

12 oz bottle.

It pours a light golden color with a foamy white head.

The smell is bready and biscuity. Slightly perfumey with some noble hops.

The flavor is a bit off for a pils. It has some unwanted yeasty notes and too much candied orange (misuse of noble hops)

I had this on tap at the brass rail, enjoyed chilled in a shaker.

The color is brilliant golden with great clarity and fast rising minute bubbles to a white cloud of foam which has good retention qualiities. The lace sticks decently. The smell is yeasty with a slightly sulfur and slight toasted pils malt with a mild sweet scent. There is a tinge of floral hops to augment the malt and yeast notes. The feel is good with dry and slightly mild bitter quality with subtle vegetal tinge and light spice in the finish but generally medium light bodied.

The taste is very mild with malt up front and light hop spice, there is a gentle pilsner malt flavor under the slight acidic bite of the moderately high carbonation level. The mild touch of sweetness is pleasant with light bitterness and floral hop flavor recurring. The cracker-like dry edge of the yeast and toasted malt is appealing> overall a good pilsner. I would enjoy this at a cookout or with some barbecue anytime a refreshing and quaffable brew with very minimal off flavors

Crystal translucent and pale yellow. Light fluffy head and tons of bubbles.

I've never described a beer as grassy in a good way, but this Pilz had a grassy, kind of fruity (citrus) smell.

The taste is pretty good, this is way better than any of the Macro lagers out there. Smooth, yet bitter and great for summer or with food.

Very fizzy and full bodied. Decent

Highly drinkable, and good. Seems like an ok beer for a hot day.

undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass (from Nov. 2011 notes).

Predictable flavor given the aroma since there is plenty of earthy and spicy hop aroma. There also some citrus in the nose, but the flavor veers more towards the citrus side, and leaves a moderately bitter grapefruit aftertaste.

A nice orange-amber with a lasting off-white head.

O - a bold and flavorful Fall seasonal.

Clear pale color thats super bubbly. Great head and lacing!

Clean and grassy fresh hops. Light, freshly toasted malts. Good pilsner aroma.

Crisp, lightly toasted malt. Clean hops. A little heavier on the malt than hops. Great taste and refreshing. Super sessionable with good flavor.

I like this pilsener a lot and will buy again.

Pale yellow color,clear appearance.White,small bubbled,froth forms a close crown with fairly good retention.Floral notes from German hops dominate aromas.Clean bitterness,slightly malty.Smooth mouthfeel. Light body,soft carbonation. Refreshing.Easy drinkability. I´ve had many Original German Pilsner so I could confirm that I prefer this NY Pilsner better than many of them.

Poured on-tap and served in a stemmed pilsner glass, the beer is a heavily carbonated, light, vibrant honey-gold coloring with a thick, dense, big bubbled, white head. Aromas are subtle and clean, with a toasty backbone and some light floral highlights. Flavors are a little more biscuit and toast, with a creamy butter overtone and some tangy, resiny hops at the end of the profile. Decent lacing that clings to the glass. The aftertaste is more heavy on the hops, both floral and bitter, leading to a clean, slightly dry finish. With the constant flow of carbonation, the beer has a surprisingly smooth, full body. Tasty beer.

12oz. Clear gold pour, just some white bubbles. Would have liked a little more.

Aroma, hay, corn and light caramel.

Taste, Grainy hay and light caramel malt. There is a light herbal hop bite. A little corn in there.
Pretty clean and straight forward. No Prima Pils, but pretty good.

Light bodied, more carbonation than it appears. Drinks easy. Definition of session ale.

A- Clear golden color with a nice off white head. Head fades quickly and leaves little bits of spotty lace on the glass.

S- Crisp and clean, notes of floral hops and cereal malts.

T- Light bread notes that give way to bright floral hops, singular in taste but crisp and clean. Finish is slightly dry and with minimal aftertastes, just a hint of hops.

M- Less than medium in body and well carbonated, a clean and refreshing beer.

O- More interesting than most examples I've had of this style, the 5.2% ABV is well suited to this as an easy drinking summer style.

Pours a light golden color with a quarter inch white head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is dominated by cracker-like pilsner malt, slightly sweet, and a hint of herbal hop. There could be a bit of diacetyl present.

Flavor is more hop forward, with a slight citrus pith undertone, almost lemony, leading to a slightly bitter finish. Grainy malt sweetness forms the backbone.

Body is on the lighter side, with moderate carbonation and a somewhat dry finish.

Overall, more character is present than some examples of the style. Very sessionable beer.

Poured from the bottle into a Radeberger flute at low altitude.

A: Looks at home in the Radeberger glass. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a prickly two-finger stark white head that fades to nothing within about 15 seconds. No lacing here, but the small carbonation bubbles look nice as they waft toward the top of the glass.

S: Bread, noble hops, grassy notes. As it should be, the smell is relatively subtle.

T: Bready yeast up front gives way to some slight grassy notes and noble hop bitterness. The finish is slightly metallic. Really not much to set this apart from a lot of the other pilsners on the market.

M: Light-bodied with a wet mouthfeel. I could have done with a bit more carbonation, but the mouthfeel suits the flavors well enough.

Overall: A great pilsner that dominates with a traditional flavor. Fans of pilsners will not be disappointed.

Appearance: Pale gold, foggy body with a slight foamy head and no lace. No visible carbonation.

Smell: Medicinal; white grapes; strawberries; crackers; vinegar; wheat.

Taste: Slight bitterness opens up to tart, bold, wheaty notes and a wheaty aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light body with a soda-like crispness.
