3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, brighter golden with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma was fresh and delightful with lemon zest and a floral bouquet over bread and honey maltage.. simple, but well executed. The flavor opened with that same lemon zest, rolling into honey sweetness at the core.. lemon candy and light floral bitterness around.. quick, crisp, refreshing finish. Light-bodied with tight carbonation on the palate.. fresh impression and tasty. Just what I want from my pilseners.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 8/30/09. 12oz Longneck bottle. Crisp hiss upon opening. Pale golden hue with a quickly dissipating white head. From a solid layer to a webbed. Very faint aromas, with caramel malts at the top of the short list. Medium bodied with a rather big palate. Grainy but with more of a caramel punch. Subtle berry esters. Finishes somewhat sweet with a lingering, tingling effervescence. Considering what it is, it’s quite nice! All the necessary qualities and a large degree of freshness. Nice stuff!

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.
