Gather your friends, pack the gear, and head out to wherever the day may take you. A midday go-to, Nooner is our take on the classic German-style pilsner—one of the original session beers. Nooner is easy drinking yet packed with the big flavor of spicy and floral whole-cone hops. Its brilliant golden color begs you to take a sip and sink your taste buds into an extremely welcoming beer, full of flavor and balanced by a crisp, dry finish

    Straw/pale gold pour with thick white head. Alot of lace. Impressive amount of carbonation. Dry finish with a little bit of apple aftertaste. Floral notes perhaps a little musty. Not bad at all.

    On tap at Bier Markt. Pours a very small frothy off-white head and has a golden appearance, fairly clear also. Leaves some sticky lacing behind. Aromas are light toasted malts, sweet, some notes of citrus hops. A bit fruity as well. Medium retention. Good slick and slightly drying mouthfeel.

    One of the better pilsners that I've had. Crisp and refreshing feel. Something lighter for this brutal summer FL heat. Good rusty, grassy, mild malty/hoppy, well-balanced flavor. Appearance is sorta pale and bland, but besides that everything else here is above average for the style.

    Pours clear golden with a thick and rather persistent snow-white head. Malty aroma has fruity and hoppy tones providing support. Crisp, malty flavor easily slakes thirst, while subtle fruit and hop tones give it a boost. Texture is smooth and firm, not very fizzy but it goes down well; more hops peek out in the finish. Morning, nooner evening, a good brew to sip while contemplating nature or enjoy at a party.

    I had this while sitting on the porch slow cooking ribs on the grill. This was a very refrshing and crisp beer. Clean and clear. I would have this again. A very nice pilsner imitation.

    Clear golden-straw when drawn with a very slight, but fluffy head. Heavily carbonation dances on the pallette, but thin texture. Crsip with a slight Euro-funk finish. Meh, take it or leave it.

    Nose of hey, sour apple, maybe some violets, Pale gold body with continuing bubbles of carbonation is topped with a thin white head that has good retention and leaves no lace. Mouth is a bit thin but not watery. Typical pils flavor profile, straw. a bit of funk, with a sour finish, a little extra hops tingle in mid flavor. A fairly solid offering of an Americanized Czech Pils.
