3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sam’s. Pours a bright yellow orange with a small white lace. Nice, spritzy aroma of malts, hops, and honey. Flavor is more hops, good malt base, straw, pepper, a bit of yeast. I think this is what a classic german pilsener is supposed to taste like so I won’t take off too many points. Very easy drinking and a nice beer to have right after work. Don’t know if I’d buy again, but I’d gladly drink this again. I sort of undertand the low scores here, but I just wonder what people are expecting from this.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Think global, drink local. Great small business, big taste tradition. Has the classic middle German, pure, Pils taste. No chemicals allowed (or wanted). Not bitter, mild. Not flat, more like rolling hills. Great on a hot day or any time one craves a middle Pils.

This is a very average golden beer to me. I did not find this to be anything special yet again, if you buy it I’ll drink it!
