3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can-purchased at whole foods Austin, TX-pours lite golden yellow with a small fizzy whispy white head. nose is dank spicy hops-noble green type with some spruce-like notes. lovely. flavors exhibit the spicy spruce like hop notes, nice pale malt grain malt with some sweetness (not over atenuated like alot of pils are leaving behind wet grains/carbroard-none of that here). crisp, almost woody hop finish with lingering spritzy seltzer water-like carbonation tingle on the tongue. this is a lovely pilsener that would be in my fridge ALL the time if i lived in this area. One of the best i have had!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at The Ginger Man in Austin. My highest rating yet for a pilsener, really impressed with this beer. Pour was pale golden with 1/2 finger head. Delicious aroma. Wasn’t expecting such a fresh taste! Appropriately hoppy. Medium body, easy to drink with food, also. Great palate, great beer!

Clear yellow with a modest white head. Aroma of florals, grass, and some biscuit. Taste is slightly sweet and citrusy with a decent bitterness. Light bodied and a tad soapy. It’s ok, something just doesn’t gel for me here.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Can. My friends, let me bring you the good news. This is lawnmower beer taken to a level of sheer magnificence. This is quenching your thirst with ambrosia after mowing the lawn with your Rolls Royce with a blade mount. This is what beer must have tasted like after a hundred-mile forced march carrying a hippopotamus. In short, my friends, this is so far above ’fizzy yellow stuff’ that it has escaped the gravity well and is currently heading for a magical planet where the rivers run with elixir of hops and barley. This, my friends, is pilsner elegance, sleek as a baby seal with an outboard motor. Drink deep.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got this in a trade with a friend. 12 ounce can into pilsener glass; no canning date, but I got it recently. Pours almost crystal clear golden straw color with a nice 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with fantastic retention that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some decent lacing clinging the glass, and plenty of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of lemon, grass, floral hops, pepper, herbs, and a bit of biscuit. Nice aromas with good balance and decent strength. Taste of big lemon, biscuit, floral, pepper, herb, grass, and spiciness. Light floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, biscuit, herb, pepper, and spiciness on the finish for a bit. Medium carbonation and body; with a crisp and very nice mouthfeel that is not thin at all. No alcohol noticed at all in the taste or finish as expected, and very drinkable. Overall this is a highly excellent pilsener, with a ton of nice well balanced flavor. One of the best ones I have had for sure.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2012 Location: Draft at Ginger Man- Austin, 2/17/12
Aroma: The nose has some light hops, with yeast, grains, and floral notes
Appearance: This one pours a clear golden-yellow color, with a white head atop it
Flavor: The flavor is decdently crisp, mild, it is both lightly sweet, and lightly bitter
Palate: The body is light-to-medium, and it has a solid, decently crisp feel on the mouth
This is an alright pils. I wasn’t overly impressed, but it is solid and fairly on style. There isn’t a whole heck of a lot more to say beyond that.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz can from freddy. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head that slowly recedes. The aroma is faint with corn and perfume. The taste was off and had a dose of cooked vegetables and some barley. The palate was thin and watery. Finished short. Overall: meh, I did not really enjoy this.
