3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light, golden yellow color, clear and bright as day with a small white head. Aroma is dry pale malt, with just a light touch of earthy hop zest. Very subtle. Taste is definitely malt-forward, very dry and very grainy. More earthy hops to give it a rounded, slightly bitter finish. Not my normal style, but definitely a well-crafted example of a pilsner.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewery. It’s bright, bright yellow and impressively clear. There’s little to no aroma. I get a bit of a corn-starchy flavor, but there’s not a lot to this. Inoffensive, cleanly made. (#5669, 8/29/2014)

[on tap at Duluth Airport]
Pleasant Saaz hops aroma with some light caramel. Clear light copper under a lacy, pristine wispy top. Faintly "lagery" sulfur flavour behind smooth caramel malt and gentle, herbal noble hops. Clean finish that is almost crisp, but a bit on the heavy and sweet side *for the style*. Medium carbonation, medium body.

Bitter pilsner, but good hops. Close to an ipa. Nice smell, and flavors. Just prefer darker beers.

12 oz can, thanks Johannes and Willie! Golden color. Aromas of honeyish malt and herbal-piney hops and some perfumed grass. Honeyish, herbal bitter, grassy and slightly salty taste. Light to medium body. Good clean pilsner with slightly salty edge. Not highly lager like but nice clean taste anyway.

Aroma has hops and malts noticeable. Taste has enough balanced sweetness to counter the pilsner character, which makes it more enjoyable. Light and crisp in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Clear pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of clean pilsner malt, a bit of sulfur, and wet stones. Light malt, a bit of iron, and very faint earthy hops make up the flavor profile. Moderate bitterness and medium bodied. A solid, but basic pilsner.
