3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Whole Foods Market, DC sixer ($16): For this price, I got to say that this beer was sadly not worth it. Pours a golden color with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is of grassy and floral hops. Taste is a little sweet and the alcohol is very much noticeable, especially as it warms up. Not the most pleasant beer to drink and I have certainly had better iterations of this style.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a bottle this color leaves no inkling of the flavor. Looks like a pale lager but has a piercing hop bite that approaches many strong apa or mild ipa. Long bitter super strong pils finish. Lasts a medium amost of time before the finish mellows out. Does not hide the alky well, even at 7%. Not much in the aroma.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gold pour with a white head. Nose is hoppy, bitter, light alcohol, and earth. Nice on the palate, fresh earthy hops, bitter, florals, and a nice finish.

On tap at Breckenridge Brewery & BBQ. Gold and clear with a white head. Pilsner malts, pale malts, noble hops and light fruit. Medium body with a crisp, clean feel. Medium bitterness and light sweetness with a smooth finish. It was OK.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Golden with one finger head. A bit sweet, but not as cloying as some double pils that I’ve had. Rather mild hop-wise -- could up these a bit, I’d think. Pretty good for a somewhat hard to find style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(En fût au O’Brien’s pub): Bonne base sucrée qui se fait trancher rapidement par un gazon frais pour ensuite laisser le maltose miellé remonter en surface. Corpulence confortable, finale fruitée.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pine, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, grapefruit, orange zest, pear, pine, cracker, bread, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice imperial pils. All around well balanced hop, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light golden. Nice white head. Light, summery, and floral aroma. Thick, malty, viney flavor. Green sinew or somethimg. Yeah that’s kinda freaky. Too heavy for the snow, that’s for sure, and thr finish sits heavy on the tongue.
