3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle coourtesy of a trade with csbosox. Pours a well carbonated dark straw, decent bright white head that dies to a full film, laces some. Largely carbonation driven. Aromas are Pilsener malts, a bit stinky, grainy with slight sweetness underneath some light florals hops, corn, cereal, faint spice. Initial is clean, cereal malts, bread, a bit of spice in the hops, faint florals, crisp and refreshing, light bodied summer sipper with the typical Pilseneer malts, slight spice and floral and grass from the hops, and a bit of mellow sweetness in the aftertaste, cereal and drop of honey or something along those lines. Not a bad brew.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s a gateway drug for those who drink fizzy yellow bubbly water from the big 3. This is completely brewed (not high-gravity) and tastes like it. If I had to drink american pilsner, this is the one I’d want. Malty goodness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold with a thin white head.
Bottle bought in KC: Aroma is grainy, slight corn-ish sweetness, grassy hop.
Flavour is very clean and crisp at the start, light malt sweetness tailing into a dry light grassy finish.
Very smooth and drinkable.
You want to talk drinkability? This beer has got it in spades.
I do hope they make inroads into the local BMC crowd with this brew.
Solid and pleasing, if not spectacularly impressive.
