This beer pours a nice golden yellow with a huge head even with a conservative pour.laces the glass big time,it almost glows in my pilsner glass.the appearance is the best thing about this beer.from here it goes down hill not much smell to me.the taste is a little strange to me,not bad just something's not right.the best pilsner I have had is noble pilsner from Sam Adams I also like victory prima pils but this one just seems not right.overall I would call this a good beer,it goes down good on a hot day but just falls short IMO .pilsners are such a diverse style that it makes them hard to judge to me some times it seems as if you drink one and ask yourself is this really a pilsner?

Golden beer with a pillowy soapy head. Smell is a little stale with faint hops and grains. Taste is clean, dry, and crisp. A little bready with a slight skunk that is common with the style. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Overall a nice german style pilsner.

Drank on tap at the Flying Saucer in Addison.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grassy and earthy hops with some flowery notes. The flavor is grapes and biscuit malt but it is very bitter. The bitterness is well above what I expect in a pilsener and detracts from the overall flavor of the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The bitterness in this beer needs to be toned way down before I can enjoy it.
