3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Breckenridge Blake St. Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a small white head falls quick to a ring. Aroma is pale malts, lightly bready with some citrus and floral notes. Taste is nice sweet bready malt with a good dose of spicy floral hops, that finishes with lingering citrus hints. Sweet malt base is held in check by the hops presence making it nicely balanced. Medium smooth body with moderate carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp clean yellow color with a slight orange hue. Very light aroma of grains. Palate is medium bodied and very clean. No metallic notes that are commonly found in a pilsner. Possibly the best pilsner our lips have ever encountered.

Clear light orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is lager-ish, kind of sweet malt with a bit of hop character. Flavor is sweet biscuit with a nice bitter bite. Good imperial pilsner. 7% is hidden nicely.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Winter Park Beer Fest ’11. Rich gold color and nice carbonation. Hops are nice on the nose and this could be a good summer refresher (if you want to get loaded in the process). Hides alcohol dangerously well, but doesn’t finish clean. Dissapointing. Maybe it was a dirty tap. Get an Avery Joe’s Pilsner if you’re the mood for something along these lines.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, $2.55 @ Bert’s Better Beers, Hooksett, NH. Used a lager glass. Head that laced real well down the glass. Nice steady carbonation. Nose is grassy, hay like, Light malt. Malty flavor, with grassy hops, some malt backbone. Medium bodied. I drank this while making supper, so it sat a bit. And the ABV is apparent when it warms. I mean overall, this isn’t a style I drink much. If you like Pils, you might like this. Don’t get me wrong, no major flaws, but not really my thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Dutch’s for $2.67. Totally clear yellow-orange color, minimal white head, active-looking carbonation, some lacing. Really nice bottle. Really nice savory fresh hop aroma, very little of the skunk that I’m accustomed to finding in "pilsners", nor the alcohol bite typical of this style. Great carbonation and texture, good mouthfeel. Nice, hoppy aftertaste. Good, but because of the price this is a brew I can never again justify buying. It’s not $2.67 good. Just a very unique pilsner, worth trying once.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold in color. Floral and pine hops on the aroma, with a nice malty hay tone behind it. Taste was pretty bitter, like a pale ale, not like a pils at all. Spritzy, bright, floral, piney, lightly bitter, and balanced with hay and biscuit malts. Pretty enjoyable!
