Excellent pils, not to dry. Moderate low bitterness. A touch of breadiness but not sweet.

More of a Helles to me than anything else. It looks the part. It is sweeter on the finish than I want. I want it to be crisper. The first half of the flavor is better than the second.

Pretty heavy for a pilsener, flavor was not expected, a little disappointed. Won't drink this one again.

Deep golden and crystal clear. Nice small bubbles rising in pilsner glass. Leaves a 1 inch white, creamy head that sticks around, nicely. Has a nice bready and spice to the aroma. Grassy and a little mild citrus. The flavor is again, nice and bready. No harshness to this beer whatsoever. Hops bring a nice subtle citrus and grassy flavor. Nice bit of lacing down the glass. The mouthfeel is really, really smooth. I'm drinking this at maybe 50 degrees F. It's a little slick on the palate, then mildly dry on the finish. Good level of carbonation, not over done. Overall, it's a very sessionable pils. Very nice and mild taste. Could definitely throw a few of these back. Someone tells me they drink nothing but BMC....this is what I'd hand them to try.

This is real good and pretty cheap. It can compete with them foreign Pilsener's. I think it is far better than the Pilsener made by Lift Bridge. I will by it again. It sort of reminds me of the beer James Page which is no longer made.

Not too bad. The flavor isn't nearly as strong of a wheat and hop mix as the aroma suggested, and there's actually a nice little floral touch. One of the better pilsners I've had.

I am fan of different kind of beers but when it came to pilsener I did not like it especially the taste ..... I like summit Extra Pale Ale but unfortunately did not like it...but I can say for sure that it is thick strong and intense...for all who like pilsener would love this flavor
