I was sceptical. This is a darn good brew. Honest and full of it. TRUST YOUR TASTEBUDS. Forget about all of the thikgs you've learned and just taste this beer, you'll understand.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first Atwater beer, and I am impressed. Bottle from the Beer Yard. The pour is gold with 2-finger white head and a good dose of carbonation, coupled with a ton of floaties which remain suspended in the glass. At times, the carbonation is floating up while the floaties drift down, and the entire effect is mesmerizing. At one point, I was staring at this beer like I was reading the Wall Street Journal, and mywife said "What the hell are you doing?" Perhaps the best appearance of all time due to this fabulous effect. The aroma was classic pils, with a hopcitric base, plus some honey pale malts and slight fruit (apricots). The palate was medium density, with flavors of heavy pale malty honey, plus the aforementioned apricots and hopcitrus. Well balanced, complex, and you really have to see this one to believe it!

Very good pilsner. The aroma is of grapes, grapefruit, and honey. The taste follows the same as the aroma with s slight bitter finish. Very nice aroma that reminds me of summer. Good for a hot day. Very refreshing.

(Draft) Nice thick head, clear straw color and crisp hop nose. The beer is well balanced with a nice hop finish. (same beer as the old Atwater Pilsner).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden-straw color with a small fizzy white head that doesn't last long, not much lacing, light spicy, grassy and flowery aromas. Bready mild sweetness turns to a hoppy and bitter with dryness in the finish. Light bodied with a soft yet crisp carbonated mouthfeel, very clean and crisp, this is a pretty awesome pils, reminds me of Jever every bit as hoppy.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color...extremely thick, fluffy head that has great lacing. Light malt aroma, with just a slight hop nose. Mild taste of malt up front...very smooth mouthfeel for the style. Back is somewhat sweet, with a hint of citrus flavor. Finish has a hop tang similar to that of a pale ale. Finally...an American brewed pilsener with a noticeable flavor profile. This brew is very unique, and put together extraordinarily well.

Tap at Barcade. Slightly hazy, pale golden pour with a tight creamy white head. The nose is quite clean with some crackery malt character. Fairly clean and fresh with a nice herbal hop character. Lightly floral with a touch of zestiness. It’s actually a pretty nice pilsner.

A fine pilsner by any means. Pours out to a bright, golden in the glass with a very, generous head. Aroma is that of light yeast and lemon. Taste is good, but not overwhelming. A nice balance of hops and malt with a lingering yeast presence. A very nice beer to drink on a warm, summer night. Its nice to see Stoney Creek revive the former Atwater Block Breweries German-style brews.
