3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2016 This is a re-rate. I had it on tap at Bitting. It pours a cloudy golden with some white head, and lacing. The aroma was some hops, bread, and grass. The taste is hoppier than I remember with light hints of citrus and grain. It’s pretty smooth with nice bitterness. This batch was much better than previous versions.

Pours a slightly cloudy straw color with no head. Aroma is of some light grass and some sweet almost corn-like malt. Taste is of some light sticky.grain malt notes, and a light touch of some grass hops. Not much going on here.....

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good sized frothy bright white head of fine bubbles. Light carbonation. Light malts, lemon and some spicy hops in the aroma. Color is a very pale yellow with good clarity. Soft biscuity malts up front and then some spicy hops late swallow. Just a little though. Some lemon and cereal grains intertwined with the other flavors as well. Finishes a bit pasty with some spicy lemon. A pretty good pilsner.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellowy color with low carbonation. Flavor was grassy, and it didn’t have the aroma or crispness that I expect from the style. Didn’t impress, sorry.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty solid, although I would probably go with another one of JJ’s offerings if I was in town. Unimaginative pils.
