3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty stock pilsener. has the noble hop aroma that you would expect from a quality czech pilsener. Less bitter than pilsner urqell. pours a nice golden color with a finely beaded white head.
Rather mild malt flavor that is well balanced by a moderate saaz bitterness. Very "clean" tasting and refreshing, great after summer chores.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) I split a six pack of this with my future father-in-law. He’s deathly afraid of non-macros and he even liked this. The aroma was a little weak, and the colour seemed to be fairly light golden. The taste was very good, however. It was pretty light and thin, but had a nice hop-malt balance. The carbonation was great, and it was pretty smooth and clean overall.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Very hoppy, malty aroma with faint tones of Earthiness. Pours a deep golden color that is visible even through the green glass. Head is rich, with a slightly off-white color, but disappears quickly. First sip has a nice, strong bite to it. Taste is richly of hops, with some malt thrown in. Great carbonation that lasts through the whole bottle. Definitely a repeat buy!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy golden color with a nice white head. Malty aroma with hints of green apples and toast. Lightly sweet malts, hints of apple. Moderatley bitter finish. Drinkable, but I would expect more hop character.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured golden yellow with a huge head that left as quickly as it formed. Small but pleasant floral hop aroma. Nicely balanced malt flavor with good body and nice crisp hop finish. Great example of the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Aroma is lightly malty (apple) and light hops. Pours a transparent gold with a white head that lasts 30 seconds. Flavor is light malt with a lightly bitter and a somewhat lihgt metallic finish. Light hop and apple aftertaste. Would be okay, but the finish really turns me off.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a nice dense off white head. Nose is skunky. Taste is skunky with a good amount of malt in the flavor. There is a good clean taste her that is nice. There is some cardboard on the finish. Really this is a nice beer. The only detracting thing about this beer is the slightly cardboard taste.
