3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at STL Microfest 2012 - Not sure if this is the right entry for this pilsner, but it seemed to be the closest match. Pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has pale pils malt, light bread, bit of spicy hops and some floral notes. Medium body that’s full for the style with soft carbonation. The flavor starts with pale malt, hints of sulfur, some grassiness and a bit of spice. The finish is clean and crisp. Really nice pils.

Sampled at Heritage Festival. Clear and golden, pretty much like a Pils. This was quite bitter with grainy flavors and some funk. Not really a lot going on here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 8/14/05 courtesy of JPDIPSO: Pours a still, clear golden with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma has lots of saaz hops and a good, dry malty presence. Body is lightly soapy, very dry and bittersweet with a semi-earthy dry finish. Very smooth and maybe even over-hopped for the style, but still decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wheaty bock aroma. Pale amber body, thin head. Stale, astringently hopped wheat. "Astringency" is not overpowering though. Some banana and pear in there to make it interesting. Light, but not bad.

Thanks John. This beer pours to a golden body with no head. The aroma is full. Fresh grains. The flavor is tart grains. Not all that special, nor that boring.
