2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew has a slight malty aroma that arose from a very small head of fine bubbles and a light yellow orange colored body. It has a carbonated taste of banana and typical low grade beer flavor. My first sips gave me gas within minutes.

Medium golden color, some head on the edge. Definite peppery hop bite from the middle till the finish. Lively.

Medium bodied malts with minimum sweetness. Nice fresh bright hops with a bit of citrus. Poured golden yellow, good head and lacing.

This may very well be a very old bottle of this - bargian bin in the wine shop, plenty of dust. Time defintely didn't hurt the hop action, which is sharp and substantial, long on lime. The rest of it though is like sticky, slightly moldy, not all the way cooked bread dough - weird counterpoint that doesn't work for me. I'll try to hunt up another of these for a rerate for sure, as I actually hadn't heard of this one before and I've been a Bell's admirer for some time.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light yellow in color, good head retention. Full-bodied, can taste the alcohol. Citrusy, bitter, slight hay flavor. Nothing uniquely different from Bells.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light golden hazy with some floating particulate. Quickly diminishing head. Citrus hoppy bitter finish. The alcohol taste is obviously present but does not predominate.

As a person familiar with American swill, the aroma and flavor of this beer was pure heaven. It is everything I’m looking for in a Pilsner.

Beautiful pour coming out of the bottle. A huge meringue-like head which i love. However, the flavor and aroma were pretty one-dimensional. Maybe im spoiled by Prima Pils but this just didn’t do it for me.
