0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
On tap at the brewpub. There is nothing good about this beer. No aroma, weird cloudy appearence, and dirty dishwater taste - just plain nasty. Did not/could not finish this. Hard to believe that someone that owns/operates a brewpub could make beer this bad and not even be aware of it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample at the brewpub on 7/23/11. Clear yellow, almost no color at all pour with a thin white head. Aroma of dank malt that’s very faint and watery. Malty and crisp flavor with a thin, dank and watery finish. Not my thing, but could be a great gateway into craft beer for the macro lager drinker.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours a clear yellow with a not quite fizzy white head, not too bad. The aroma is grassy hops with a little caramel malts, quite boring. Taste follows the nose, not bad but uninteresting. Palate is watery and crisp. I know Black Lotus can do better, they make this beer for the sole purpose of attracting the BMC drinker.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the brewpub. Very pale straw-coloured pour. The nose is lightly grainy with a soft herbal hoppiness. Really, remarkably, incredibly bland. It’s not really bad per se, it’s just so incredibly boring.

Tap @ Black Lotus - arouma is skunky and grassy. Caramel malts, smooth. Hops are a bit offensive and dry. blah.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits and grainy malt. Flavor of sweet fruit and light sweet fruits (although it is not too sweet overall). Dry and drinkable. A pretty good pilsener.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light lemon and grass. It’s a transparent gold/yellow with a small white head. The flavor starts with some light pilsner sweetness and a hint of lemon. It finishes with some light grassy bitterness. Not a big pilsner fan, but this is pretty solid.

While I’m not a pilsner person (too much American pilsner has made me sour on the beer), this one is ok. Light as many decent pilsners are (i.e. Bell’s).
