Pours copper/gold with a thick white head. Smells of saaz hops, crisp, dry pilsner malt, touches of apple. Tastes of dry malt, some spicy hints and some residual sweetness on the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best by of 12/22/11. 22 oz bomber into a tall pilsner glass...finally get to rock an actual pilsner in this glass! A - Really dark golden brown/yellow body. Super fluffy white head that breaks apart into chunks. Loads of bubbles. S - Bready malts, cereal grains and some mild hops. Fairly one dimensional. This is the only flaw I found in this beer. T - Really nice creaminess and bubbly texture. Rich malty bread, some sweetness and just the perfect amount of hop bittterness at the end to tie it all together. This is really delicious. Its also worth noting that I cracked this about 45 minutes after I bought it so its warmed up a slight bit. Still amazingly drinkable. O - Perfect. Summer. Beer. This might just be my new favorite summer seasonal. Its so simple, crisp, clean and refreshing. 22 oz of summer! Another winner from BBC.

Thanks Jason for hauling this all the way to Italy!
Appears a pale and clear yellow with a fluffy white head. Some nice lacing.
Smells citrusy, crisp hops, light malt.
Taste is a wonderful blend of hop crispness and light malt sweetness.
Light body with nice carbonation and super smooth.

This beer is grassy hoppy, yet smooth tasting. It leaves you craving for another sip. The malt flavors are tingling, yet sweet and easily drinkable. It is the perfect flavor, with a nice dry finish. I am from the local area, and every Berkshire beer I have tried is better than average if not on the verge of greatness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 17/20
light body, medium bitterness, golden, clear, frothy, white foam, bread, spruce, The Saaz hops come though in the nose but not overwhelming as in an IPA. The light maltiness is followed by the hops bitterness at the end in a nice balance. The bitterness lingers in the aftertaste, a reminder of how good this beer is.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. Sweet biscuity malts in the nose with light notes of straw. Medium sweet flavor, some nice doughy bread, light bitter straw, some white sugar. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty clean finish, more sweet, white bread malts, mild bitterness. Not too complex. Very easy.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice deep straw color with a two finger foamy head that sticks around for a bit. Bright crisp saaz hop aromas with hints of bready malts and traces of citrus. On the palate its smooth and refreshing with nice punches of bitterness balanced by round bready malts.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left very light lace. The aroma is weak malt along with some restrained grassy hops. The flavor is malt followed by some grassy hops with some mild-moderate bitterness. Ever-so-slightly sweet. A nice bready flavor emerges in the aftertaste. Crisp at the finish and spot on for the style. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Boring pilsner with very muted hops and a classic pale malt. Finishes dry and a bit "corny" even though i doubt theres any corn in it. Needs a bit more hops and bitterness for my taste not bad.
