3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: copper and gold under a voluminous white head which lines the inside of my glass with lacey fingers. A slow stream of bubbles keeps the head afloat in blotchy beauty. Swirls thick and full.
Nose: bread crusts, saltines, green grass, key lime. Brisk – dry then zesty, zesty then dry. Lemon zest. Tropical zip in the back – papaya and star fruit. Floral and herbal esters weave in and out. Dandelion and white flower petals.
Palate: sweetness along the edge leads into crisp, dry, bitterness. Papaya and banana skin. Greenness of flowers, stems and all. Key lime and sweet mown grass. Smooth mouthfeel and gently mouth-coating with subtle sweet grains. Pineapple, coconut, and star fruit. Tickle of spice in the back – grains of paradise.
Final Thoughts: delicious! I was worried the bottle was going to be a dud seeing as months had passed from when I bought the bottle to when I actually drank it. Thankfully the beer deities were friendly and the beer delightful. Another winner from Breckenridge.

Less aroma or taste than most supermarket pilsners. Too sweet IMO. Slightly cloudy golden color with decent body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfect for what it is. A slightly hoppier version of a pilsner with a nice ABV boost. Hazier than a normal pils, but has a nice head and good clean taste and crisp maltiness.

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.

3.5 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.
