1.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tasted from a 12oz screw-top bottle into a tulip glass. It poured a crystal-clear deep golden color, creamy white foam with lace. Nice. Very nice aromas of sweet malt, caramel, mildly flowery/resiny noble hops, faint peppery yeast phenols. Surprisingly delicious aromas. The flavor however, was horrible: rough, metallic, mushy cardboard, flat, oxidized, tomato sauce, solvent, as bad as any gas station malt liquor you’ve ever had. I’ve never experienced a beer where the aroma and the flavor were so opposite. I can’t even comprehend it. They just can’t help it, can they? Just can’t let themselves make a good beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 12275-WA95. It pours a yellow to golden color with a fizzy head that lingers a little longer than the other two sample styles in the 12 pack. The aroma is quite grainy with a clean crisp hop note. The body is creamy and light. The taste has a sour grainy kind of character that I cannot quite define with a touch of honey or caramel. I like the concept of these Project Batch beers and maybe they did taste that way in the 19th Century but for the most part they remind me of Budweiser with a bite. Maybe that is the plan.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The body is a rich orange tinted amber with a thin white head. The nose is earthy and deep with some musk. There is also some perfumed pear type fruit sweetness. This is a nice decently hoppy pils with a leathery and paper type finish. There is also some hay and a little bit of bread crust. Actually, this is a decent pils and something I would want to try again. Just hoppy enough to stay interesting with a relatively light body. Surprising that it is 6% abv as it is smooth and clean.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden color with a thick white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells of light malt and grass, tastes the same as it smells. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Overall this is a decent tasting macro pilsener.
