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.

Pour reveals a hazy golden straw-colored beer with a slightly off-white head. Gorgeous beer.

Aromas are grassy hops and bready malts - perfect. The taste is very rich for a 5.3% beer, with the hops maintaining the grassy note, and adding a slightly floral character, but not overwhelming the pilsner malt. Just a fantastic lawnmower beer, IMHO.

A: Pours a perfectly clear copper/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Some light sticky lace is left behind.
S: Up front is spicy yeast. Floral and citrus hops are in full force. Bread and biscuit balances everything out. Very nice.
T: Follows the nose. Lots of spice and yeast. There is a large assault of citrus hops up front. Flowery and grassy hops as well. Again, plenty bread and biscuit for balance. Nuanced and enjoyable. This is very nice.
M/D: A medium body. Pretty much perfectly crisp, dry and refreshing. Very easy to drink. My pint is gone in no time, and I would have no problem quaffing a few.

Well done Real Ale. This is very enjoyable. Nuanced and subtle, just like a good lager should be. Some recurring themes, but well earned. An excellent lager, and highly recommend.

Brought to me in a shaker pint glass a lightly hazed, yellow color with a sticky coating of white foam.

Grainy, lightly malted nose with a mild grass and herb hops. Clean and very fresh smelling.

Lots of hop bitterness and leafy hop flavor. Good pilsner here, I think this one could hang with some of the better versions from PA I have had recently. Mouthfeel is good, not thin at all and pretty full flavored. I could certainly drink alot of this one.

3/29..poured from a can. Clear gold, active bubbles. Sticky white foam. Clear pilsy nose, very light. German pils taste and a firm bitter. Light citrus pokes through. Simple but good.
