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.

3.4 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-17-11. Fruity, floral aroma features lemon and grapefruit scents. Continental hops noticeable in the nose, but it’s not as hoppy as I had hoped. Pours an effervescent, hazy brass with a small to moderate amount of off-white head. Produces sporadic lacing. Salty, “beery,” creamy taste features yellow plum and condensed milk flavors. Dry finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Lively in the likable palate. Breckenridge Regal Double Pilsner is decent but forgettable and disappointing.

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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice Malty and Hop aroma reminiscent of bohemian pilsner . Nice Malt backbone with a slight bitter offset and a clean crisp finish. The malt flavor seems a bit watered-down. Otherwise a fine sample.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy light gold with slight fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet gummy hay and yeast. Flavor is sweet maltiness up front and boozy dryer floral finish on the end. Overall, worth a try but not anything I’d go back to.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The pour is a clear gold color with an average, white, fluffy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves just a bit of soapy lace. The nose is bland and very simple; sugary sweetness (almost cotton candy-like), some floral tones, and blood oranges. The flavor is similar with more of the orangey notes, still sugary sweet, lightly biscuity, and slightly peppery. The palate is nearly lively, medium, and thick in texture. The finish is still fairly sweet but finally gains a moderately light spicy bitterness, the sugar notes finally dissipating, and blood orange lingering. The blood orange notes were about the only thing I found interesting about this one. Just not good and definitely not pilsner-like whatsoever.
