3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(500 ml bottle: $2.29 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Quite a grainy pilsener, getting close to tasting like corn, moderately sweet for the style, but it’s pretty tasty. I also find the spicy, mildly bitter hop character very enjoyable. Corn/grain aroma dominates the nose, but the spiciness of the hops is delightful. Light-medium bodied, clean, somewhat crisp in the finish, with a pleasant aftertaste and mouthfeel. Medium straw color, but also lightly cloudy from the bit of yeast in the bottle. The tall, stable, white head pours to over an inch in height, and never drops below a quarter-inch. Abundant intricate lacing decorates the glass like a doily. A very nice pils, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clouded yellowy amber appearance, moderate head formation. Sweet perfumey, candyish aroma. Sweet almost fruity palate, balanced by a lightly sharp hoppiness. Nothing special.

I suspect that this bottle had been mishandled. Pours straw coloured with lots of little things floating around in it, Kind of like when my father-in-law offers me a bottle of some stuff he’s had around since the ’76 olympics. Not much flavour but some light malt and hops. Left a bad feeling in the back of my throat, probably from all thye crud floating around in it

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2004 Hoppy, apparently because it uses hop extract as well as hops. Pehaps a mix of Saaz and Hallertauer, but this is dripping with all the delights of stinky wet haylike pale malt in abundance and great hopping. Big back of the throat medicinal bitter drip at the finish. Slightly artificial, but in more of a european sense (not adjuncty, corny) - Whoa - loads of great softer bitterness at the end becuase of an abundance of yeastiness...mmmm...bottle-conditioning. Seek this one out!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden translucent, moderate head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is malty sweet and full of noble hops. Flavor has the right bitterness for a pils,but has a slightly lingering sweetness. Bitter, but not dry finish. A very good pilsner.

Pale gold in color, very nice head with excellent lacing. Aroma is grainy, with cut grass and dried parsley coming through strongly. Full, rounded mouthfeel, bit of sweetness, floral hops, touch of bitterness. Maybe not as drying as some would care for, but quite full flavored and enjoyable.

Oh man, that name is sure a mouthfull! Gold, with excellent lacing. Has a nice dryness and some hops, but not crisp enough for me.

Full and thick, this is not particularly dry or crisp. Hop aroma, but not much hop aftertaste.
