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.

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)

Pours a full golden color with a light head. Initial taste is honey, slight hops and nice full maltiness for a pils. I’m not a pils fan, but this is a good one and saving the shoreline? An added bonus.
