1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From the April 2013 3R6P beer tasting. +++ Sampled from a growler this beer poured a bright yellow color with a small soapy white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was slightly must and skunky with a tart citrus presence. The flavor was dry, tart and very perfumey with a hint of skunk and a light citric note. Medium length tart perfume and citrus finish. Light body. Not good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured on draft. Pours a pale gold with a thin white head of foam. Aroma is super light and a little grainy. Taste is mildly bitter and just a touch sweet. Finish moves toward the more bitter side of the style and on to a walnut type nuttiness. Its a nice take on the style, that’s for sure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A german pilsner with a fruity pineapples twist. Very nice session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear blonde body with a medium white head leaving goof lacings.
In long: Pillowy body. Malt profile is white bread, wheat and a little honey. Then comes some dry grass, some floral notes, mild bitterness. An overall pineapples flavour from beginning to end. The wheat, grass and floral aspects really took me to a countryside field. All in all a very flavourful refreshing beer that will take you to a countryside field an make you forget about the gloomy aspects city life, and trust me in Cleveland you’ll really need it.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Must say I was most impressed with this one, a very well done German style pilsner. I had it on draft at the Beer Engine. Poured a very pale straw color with a big, creamy head and very good carbonation. The taste was right on for the style, it reminded me a lot of the pilsners I had last time I visited Deutschland.
