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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can pours a clear straw golden with large fluffy white head. Sweet grassy hops and malt, with sweet grains in the aroma. Taste of grassy dry hops into a into a semi sweet malt into grains and finishing with an earthy bitterness. Decent but the sweetness all around is a little unbalanced for me.

Can. Crystal clear yellow pour with a huge white head that laces well as it recedes. Pine and floral hop aroma - pretty nice. Taste is pretty aggressively hoppy for the style, but decent. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can. The second from a six-pack that I have consumed. Tangy aroma reveals this as a Czech-style pilsner. Weak and non-descript smell. Pours a clear gold with a moderate amount of off-white head. Decent effervescence with large bubbles. Not notable in appearance. Simultaneously dry and juicy taste features apricot and champagne flavors. Medium body. Crisp, lively, and frothy in the palate. Strong, prototypical lager palate. Otherwise, unremarkably though far from unpleasant. I’ve been to the brewery and its taproom, and I can assure you that most of its offerings are better than this one.

12 oz. can. pours a crystal clear gold with lively carbonation and a nice fluffy white soapy foamy head. Aroma has noticeable hops and malt. Taste is light bitter hops with subtle pine and the malt come out and mixes well. Palate is thin fizzy and clean with a crisp finish. Nice light beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Fresh Euro pils aroma. Crystal clear yellow gold with a thin white head with excellent lace. Very little visible carbonation. Awesome pils flavor. Czech pils character with some sweetness for balance and a higher than average hop profile for the style. Really nice.
