Notes: Inspired by the crisp, clean Pilsners of the Old World, Bobcat was designed as a light-bodied lager with a subtle bitterness and an uncanny ability to pair with a wide variety of food. Golden and refreshing, Bobcat utilizes noble german hop varieties to create an easy-going and highly drinkable Pilsner.

Bobcat Pilsner pours a golden color, with a nice long lasting and lacing head. Aroma is very grainy. Flavor is light, very sweet, hints of apple and butter. Flat. Overall, not much here, very sweet, fruity like flavors.

On tap at Dinosaur BBQ in Troy, NY.

This one pours a light straw yellow, clear as day, with a small foamy head, and not much lacing.

This smells like slight grassy hops, vague sweetness, and just a general lager aroma.

This is definitely drinkable and tasty, but kind of bland/muddled. There's a very light hop character, and too much sweetness for the style- I want some dryness and some crispness.

This is very light bodied, and definitely quite drinkable, but it doesn't quite have that crisp refreshing feel I desire in top level pilsners.

I'm happy to have tried this, but there are much better pilsners out there.

Light crisp aroma, with a touch of noble earthy hops. Pours a mostly clear pale straw with a quickly fading white head. There's a touch of malt sweetness, which fades to a mild earthy bitter finish. A light body, and nice carbonation keeps this an easy drinking pils.

Very light gold hello color with an above average carbonation. Aroma was malt,grain,bread,and floral orange peel. Taste was identical except for a bit of a spice finish. Not exceptional perhaps but definitely would have this again. I think this would be a great beer to serve people who are new to craft beer as it isn't too extreme in any area so it is a very easy beer to drink

Smell is light sweet malt with a hint of tangerine.
Taste is mild citrus with a fairly peppery/spicy finish.

A: Pours a brillant golden straw body with a good size bubbly white head, long lasting, spotty lacing.

S: Pretty simple nose of sweet grainy malts, some saaz hops maybe, but a standard blonde ale smell.

T: Sweet pale malts upfront with some light citrus hop bitterness, kind of spicy in the finish. Tastes like a standard lager.

M: Light body; medium carbonation; smooth and crisp mouthfeel.

O: This is another one of the good ones at Adirondack. Low ABV makes it sessionable, and the standard and simple flavor pairs well with almost anything there. I would definitely get it again, but even though it's a good ale, it's nothing life-changing.

Enjoyed this one on tap this past summer. Notes from the day of tasting.
Light honey colored with an even and lively carbonation. Very evenly balanced. Nothing really jumped out at it me too much. It was an easy drinker with no flavors coming in over the top. Very soft and sweet.
