3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Hayduke. Clear golden with light carbonation visible. A nice one finger white head that left light lacing. A very soft nose. I was able to find some grain and honey. Flavor is not big, either. Some grass is tasted with mildly bitter hops. Grain and citrus was also tasted. Hops tended to grow in prominence as the beer warmed and caramel came even later. Not complicated and it would be a nice "intro to craft beer" kind of beer. Decent flavor and enjoyable to drink.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drank 3/19/11. Thanks to Brenn79 for this. "Best by Jan. 2011." 12 oz bottle into footed pilsner glass. Pours a beautiful hazy gold with a small head. Smells like a barn opened up after being closed up for about ten years. Taste starts out sweet and finishes bitter and dry. Carbonation is medium-high, body is medium. Boring.

12 oz. bottle- Pours pale golden with a thin (big suprise) white head, aroma is crisp clean hops, lemon zest, and somewhat floral. The taste is light hops and malts, the body is fairly thin, carbonation is low. B&B- BLAND AND BORING

not a big fan of pilseners at all, I sorta think why bother? but if you’re going to drink a pils instead of an ale, this one is not bad. we bought it for a mexican themed party and it’s sat around in my fridge for weeks, finally tried it. pleasantly surprised.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle served in a footed pilsner. Pours clear pale yellow with a short white top. Short retention. Grass and herbal hop aroma with a hint of sweetness. Mild bitter flavor. Light body, lively carbonation, oily texture. Short, dry and oily-astringent finish. Not my style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best American pils I have had. Light gold color. Carbonation is a little low. Well hopped, almost like a Bohemian pilsener. Medium palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours golden with medium white head. Big flowery, leafy hop aroma up front, but lots of subtle noble complexity, not overwhelming, with honey-like malt in the background. Palate is very nice, a little fuzzy carbonation, mouth pleasing resins. Flavor is very full of fresh barley graininess, ends on a lightly bitter herbal note. A very well done german-style pilsner.
