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.

Yellow pour with a white frothy top. Dry hopped, clean aroma with a similar flavor profile. Sweet alcohol flavor lingers making it sticky after the smooth finish.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Boulder Beer Rave ’10. Light and crisp with enough malts to back the pilsner-esk hops. One of the better American pilsners I’ve tasted.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours nearly clear deep gold into a tulip. Thick sheets of lacing left with each sip even after the off-white, creamy head fades to a small ring. The nose is similar to a nice helles bock with a tad more hop citrus and grass. The malts come across as lightly toasty and bready, suggesting a sweet flavour to come. Very sweet light malty, bready flavour with pleasant bitterness that is still a bit low for a double pils, and not really very "noble." Some doughy flavours accompany. Tastes more like American variety noble heritage hops were used. Not much heat at all here, but at 7% abv, that makes sense. Tasteful, perceivable amount of DMS lets you know it’s a pilsner without tasting like a corny, cooked veggie bomb. Soft melon/honeydew fruitiness, almost like a Jolly Rancher? Yea, that’s it! The mouthfeel is slick up front, gently carbonated given the style, and full-bodied, almost syrupy in the finish. Very sweet, but enough hops are there to keep it from being cloying.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a mostly clear golden amber body with a small offwhite head. Aroma has floral and citrusy hop notes with a whiff of alcohol. Medium body and carbonation. Taste has a prevailing sweet caramel bready maltiness that is fairly well balanced by herbal hop bitterness. Just a hint of the alcohol that was more prominent in the aroma. Nicely balanced, overall, and very drinkable.
