3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a clear copper color with an initially fluffy white head that dissipates fairly quickly.
S: The nose is sort of odd to me. There are some good floral hop aromas, but a very strong metallic tinge to it as well. Some light grass and malt notes, too.
T: Luckily, an improvement in terms of the flavor. The hops are quite floral and pungent. A slight spice character to this one along with some fairly sweet malt, sugar, and apple juice.
M: The body is on the full side for a pilsner with a moderate carbonation.
D: The flavor of this was nice, but the nose was just not enjoyable. Not sure what happened there, but such is life.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a spotty-lacing coating of white head. Has an authentic pilsner nose with some fresh grassy saaz hoppiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and light malty sweetness with a crisp floral saaz hoppy balance before a drier bittersweet finish. Well done and true to style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. The pour is a clear gold with a fizzy white head. No head formation really and no retention/lace. Nose is muted: fruity hops and sweet orange perhaps. Taste is citrus hop heavy, orange peel, lemon with mild astringent bitterness. Melons and fruit dominate on a profile that is very IPA like. Palate is full, heavy, bitter, mild buttery biscuit (no diacetyl though)...oily even in the mouthfeel. Pretty intense alcohol presence is slightly masked by the citrus hops. In short, an IPA made with lager yeast. Pilsner gives impressions of grass, sharpness, refreshing spice and Saaz hops. This is not pilsner.
