3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very large pillowy bright white head of very small bubbles. Excellent carbonation. Light and grainy aroma with some biscuit malts, cereal grains and some lemon grass. Color is a medium golden orange. Nice hoppy flavor with some orange peel, bitter piney hops, more grains and dried flowers. Very bitter with a bit of chalky dryness. Light alcohol presence. Pretty easy drinking once you get passed the bitterness. Finishes dry with a lingering pasty bitterness. A pretty good pilsner but not your average run of the mill stuff.

Hazy golden color, frothy head and good lacing. Sweet pilsner malty aroma and flavor backbone with a strange hoppy flavor that just didn’t seem to fit the style (from the description I figured it was the simcoe). Tart zingy finish. Good but not great.

Bottle split with pat. Pours a yellow gold with very slight head. Aroma is spicy and tame. Mouthfeel is smooth, not too much going on but definitely great session potential.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Pours a clear yellow-gold with an average size diminishing white head. Lovely aroma of grassy hops, fruit, some honey and caramel malt. Flavour tastes like an extra-hoppy Pilsener with a long bitter finish. Quite tasty and so easy to drink. The alcohol is very well hidden. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I’d love to buy bottles of this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Bir & Fud, Roma. Clear golden with a huge white head. Aroma of flower, malt and light spice/peppery notes. Flavour is extremely clean - crisp malt, citrus, spice. Dry and refreshing finish. Dangerously drinkable - so much I needed a few glasses for my fix. A great collabo brew.
