3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A basic pils with a surprisingly malty and bready backbone. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright yellow color with a large fluffy yellow -white head that left very good lacing. The aroma was somewhat bitter with a bit of a tangy and sour undertone and notes of lemon, perfume, bread and chalk. The flavor was dryish and bitter with a crisp perfumey presence and notes of citric hops and a surprisingly strong bready and malty undertone. Long bread and malty finish with almost honey and lingering lemon and perfumey hops. Moderately full bodied. The alcohol was well contained. Quite nice for what it is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold in color. Floral and pine hops on the aroma, with a nice malty hay tone behind it. Taste was pretty bitter, like a pale ale, not like a pils at all. Spritzy, bright, floral, piney, lightly bitter, and balanced with hay and biscuit malts. Pretty enjoyable!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Almost nose grass in the nose, just sunny pale malt and citrus, perhaps a touch of peel amid the dough and faint yeast. Golden pour with a creamy, rocky white head. Taste is sweet but not cloying, a little closer to neutral, actually, with a bland malt profile that reminds of certain kinds of bland bread. Medium body is creamy and cleansing. Some light caramel and a super nice malty backbone. Really, this could pass for a charged, intense golden ale, but there’s not enough sharp bite or hop presence to qualify as a pils, let alone a special or double. Very noble, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear light copper glowing body with a very thin off-white head on top that fades very fast. Aroma of alcohol, metal, fresh hops, grapefruit, pine and a nice pungent strong scent. Medium-bodied; Assertive orange flavour with some other fruits, deep malt, alcohol, a light hoppy flavour and a lot of metallic notes that taste a bit off. Aftertaste shows some depth, but the metallic notes and strong aftertaste shows too much alcohol and bitterness. Overall, an interesting beer, but not great, still worth trying ,especially for the season. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 23-May-2012 for US$2.49 sampled at home in Upstate New York on 26-May-2012.
