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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with a small head and bits of lacing. Aroma of citrus, some malt sweetness, grain and bit of spice. Taste of citrus, mlat sweetness with a bit of honey, some grain and what seems like a trace of pepper. Nice bitterness, and a clean finish. Failry light body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Enjoyable pilsner with a bit of character and zest.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grainy aroma. Pours a golden amber with a small non-lasting white head, good lacing and lots of rising bubbles. Taste is malt forward (cereal) with a nice hopped bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this was ok, but not exactly the Pils taste I was expecting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear yellow, tall white foamy head. Slightly musty hop aroma, high carbonation, malt balance. Refreshing and a good overall pilsner.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, bright gold appearance with a small white head and decent lacing. Grassy aroma beneath the sweet malts. Grainy flavors, offset by summer fruit and followed by herbal and citrus hops. A hint of corn in the aftertaste limits the sensory pleasures on the palate. Overall, though, a more interesting, more complex pils then the run of the mill.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy, golden color with a white head. Aroma is of floral hops, citrus hops, and some caramel malts. Flavor is of caramel malts, some slight breadiness, and some citrus hops. Slight alcohol finish that isn’t too strong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: deep clear gold with a short, fizzy white head that quickly shrinks to nothing, and very little lacing. Aroma: grassy and slightly floral, with notes of pepper and grainy, crackery malts. Taste: toasted white bread, lemon zest, dried hay, with big grassy, floral hops. Finish: slightly bitter from the hops, with a little malty sweetness underneath. Notes: Totally fine. Tasted exactly like what you’d expect: a regular pilsner with more hops and more malt. Even with the bigger flavors and aroma, it was still pretty drinkable, palate-wise.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lots of bubbles in this clean yellow body. This brew was a tad metallic in the scent and taste. Sip after sip that dissipates, leaving a solid bready-malt character in which fruity esters come out as well. Very drinkable, only I wish the serving sizes were bigger.
