3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this before the brewery closed.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a nice looking light golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing trickling down the glass.
The smell had some light sweet bready/biscuity malt with a light spicy hops in the background.
The taste was mainly a sweet breadiness.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Pilsener worthy of having again too bad they’re closed now.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazy light golden amber with cloud pillows for a head and thick strips of lace. Taste is an odd malt and light bitter. There’s a sour aftertaste that keeps this from working well at all. Too bad, it looks good, and has a good looking label, and I was hoping....

500ml Bottle: This one was hiding in the back of the fridge. This one poured a fairly clear, golden color. There was a small white head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. The aroma is OK. Some malts, floral and spicy notes. Taste also rates an OK. Some spice, hint of bitterness, some malts. Overall a decent beer, but not worth what they charged for it. I guess that had something to do with their demise.

Pours a three finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Hazy, pale amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Hay nose, sweet hay and bread flavor. Similar to their Portland Lager. Pricey at $6.50 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is spicy hops and yeast with some fruity hay and sweet base malt. Almost clear, but for some powdery yeast that too easily arose from the bottom of the bottle; copper under a quickly receding white foam. Flavour is predominantly noble hops, backed up with some sweet malt that really comes in at the end together with a spicy bitterness. Crisp, but the finish has a touch of phenolic spiciness that makes the beer not as clean as it could be. Medium-light to light body, medium carbonation, lingering moderate bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nature’s Way Market had a curious looking 500 ml bottle of this pilsner, so I bought it. No date code anywhere on the bottle. Overall I didn’t expect much since it is just a pilsner. It met my expectations. Hazy golden color, white head that leaves a small ring of retention. Nose is pale malt with the Saaz that should be here. Light grain, Saaz hops with a nice amount of carbonation to give the hops the right bite. No major problems here. Simple and straight-forward.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL Bottle, purchased at Ron’s Market - Farmington, ME. Time for some afternoon lager. Slight pils malt cracker and mineral aroma. Flavors are clean, simple and straightforward in base malt. Seemingly well lagered. A good juicy hop finish. It’s sweet and hoppy enough to almost feel like a pre-prohibition style American lager, which confuses a little. Somehow not as tight as the Portland Lager. The flavors just aren’t as rich.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(500 ml from Global Beverage) Golden pour with two and a half fingers of white head. Aroma of honey and hay, light sweat. Mouthfeel smooth, medium-full, crisp and dry, touch of prickliness. Flavor of honey and hay with a bit of licorice toward the finish. A medium-light hoppy bitter bite in the finish. Clean, malty and nice. Not a bad pilsener.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Pours golden with pale malts and sort of bland, even for a pilsener.
