2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
6 oz. sample on tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Very subtle nose of not much - cereal, grains, light spicy and grassy hops. Flavour of dry, spicy, grassy hops and biscuity malt. Pretty bland pilsner - nothing intriguing about this on any level, not even "refreshing" really.

draft at the brewery. pours a crystal clear bright gold with a fine thin felty white head. nice lemon and grass nose. creamy medium body, surprisingly thickish and grainy for a bottom fermenter. caramellish, nuts, lemon verbena and grass on the mid palate, with a nice dry peppery herbal hop finish. well done.

Pours golden orange with a nice head into a pilsner glass. Aroma is a little sweet and bready. Nice light sweetness is followed by a grassy hop presence. A nice light pilsner that is a pleasant palate cleanser during lunch.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy golden-amber. Thin but rich head. Very grassy aroma with pungent sage-like undertones and plenty of baguette-like malts. Quite crisp and hoppy, with a big crusty malt kiss, leading into a long, herbal hop finish. Assertive, rustic, quenching pils for summer, more or less in the Bavarian interpretation.
