3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a bubbly head cover, wide bars of lace. Aroma of malt and floral hops. Taste is full-bodied malt that grows into the palate, yielding only partially to solid citrus hops on the swallow, then cruising through a medium finish. Really good brew. Seems simple, but also has a lot of kick. Recommended.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight piney after taste. Nice blend of hoppy and malty flavor. Abv is higher than average but not over powering. Very easy drinking beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from State Line. Hazy gold color and decent white head, lots of soapy lacing. Beer is decent but would have expected it to be hoppier. Aroma of grass and hay, taste is sweet with some very faint hints of lemon. Sticky mouthfeel with hints of sugar and lemon in the palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Pours a medium, poorly retained, white head, over a clear gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is Pils malts, light colored fruits (pear, apple), herbal hops......taste is lightly sweet initially,, wilt cereal malts, leading to a mild bitterness.....mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, light acid, slight carbonation. The malts are a bit too prominent, and the beer needs more noble malt presence to meet the Pilsner style. Otherwise it is just a Strong Lager and meets that more incipient style quite easily. BJCP rating is as a Pilsner. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5

355ml bottle. Really nice looking packaging. It pours a hazy honey-gold pour wiht a fluffy whit ehead that recedes with thick lacing. The smell is surprisingly on track. HAy, pils malt, honey, and orange marmalade dominate. The flavor is breakfast cereal, nougat, orange marmalade, noble hops. Not bitter, fairly malt but not over the top. It has a sugary flavor but isn’t sticky. Not the worst imperial pilsener but I still question what I’m drinking.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typical Pilsner aroma, maybe a bit hoppier though. Clear straw color with a thin head. Taste has a nice Pilsner base with more hops than you would expect. Finishes crisp and clean. Very easy going down.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Columbia Ale House. Golden with persistent white head. Clean aroma of grassy hops. Distinctly pilsner but with a malty palette and boozyness not usually associated with the style (hence Double). Nice grassy floral hop flavors. Finish is hops and enjoyable bitterness. Very nice.
