3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden yellow with a big white foam head. Aroma of yeast and grain. A little grassy herbal hop flavor but it’s faint in this bottle. Nice pils but I doubt I’d buy it again

I really like the idea of this beer from the description, I just wish they had picked a different style. It tastes like a cheap lager to me, though it is at the upper end of that distribution. It’s slightly skunky like a lot of lagers, but is milder in everything, making it palatable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy goldeny orange colour with a white fluffy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready malts, mild grainyness along with soe floral and slight citrusy notes as well. Flavour is bready, but quite sweet malts along with some citrus and floral notes. Ends quite herbal and hoppy. Mild alcohol sweetness as it warms up, but otherwise pleasant imperial pils.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hazy gold, large white head, adequate lacing. Aroma is malt, honey citrus. Light bitter and light sweetness. Medium body, spicy grain, light citrus. Flavor is a little bland but the balance of bitter/sweet is OK.
Finishes with a little bitter citrus.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
There are very few wheat beers that I can get into. This is not one of them. Granted, it’s only partially wheat malt, but it’s enough to throw this off for me. Not bitter enough and with enough of that funky banana hefe taste that I can safely say I don’t care for this. Still, I’m trying to rate on quality more than personal taste. As an Imperial (ish) pilsener, this falls pretty damn flat. Not flavorful, hoppy or bitter enough.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of dough, yeast and sweet vanilla malts. Clear yellow color with a medium sized foam. Pleasant wheat, barley, lemon, bread and yeast flavors with a light, bitter hop characteristics on the finish. Somewhat syrupy malt texture with subtle carbonation. Overall, this is a delicious pilsener with mainly bready sweet malts and a slight bittering hop taste. I’d give this a B+ rating.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden yellow with slighly off white thick foam, lacing to the glass. Smell is bitter, like beer should smell. Taste although is a bit sweet, but a bitter after taste. Drinking this beer is also contributing to saving the shores of Louisiana, I am a now an environmental drinker. (Houston 201205)

This beer pours a pale yellow color with a medium thick and pillowy white head that evaporates slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of wheat, spice and malt. Medium body with flavors of bready malt, mild spices, wheat and a touch of hops. The finish is malty with a sweet aftertaste. Decent overall.
