2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very, very pale yellow with a nice fluffy white head with tons of carbonation. The aroma is mainly just mild grains and a hint of pale malts. There are some spices and hops in the background as well. The taste has a grassy hop kick up front with pale malts and some spices as well. The mouthfeel is crisp, clean with a bit of bitterness through the finish. This one was an average pilsener that was pretty drinkable.

Bottle. Pours pale yellow, with a white head. Aroma is grain, malt, and hops. Flavor is grain and malt, with just a touch of hops. Body on the light side, but it’s nice and crisp. Thans to 5000 for this bottle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Miles beyond average American take on a pilsner. Very competent. The 3.02 score is a joke. Far prefered to their 3.7 Imperial IPA.
Splendid white head, fully lacing. Brilliant hazy golden. Perfect appearance.Very fresh and clean (bought a few weeks ago perhaps, but in New York state of all places, some other people must have gotten it as fresh!). Spicy, bright hop character, almost grassy, well-developped. Strong malt backbone with focused freshness, gently bready, hay-like. As clean as you could wish, yet with the delicate yeast influence of the good European renditions. Medium-full bodied, yet easily poundable, like the best examples. Hugely refreshing, minimally acidic. Growing, yet soft and pillowy bitterness. Dry finish. Crisp all the way through.
Ample, but not very flavourful malts.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear gold with a quarter-inch white head. Grainy aroma of slightly sour yeast, malt and a dash of hops. Flavor is not bad for a pils: grassy and crisp with an earthy undertone. Slightly bitter finish. Not bad overall, but not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy cloudy yellow, not much head. Grainy aroma. Slight citrus spritz, almost detecting a styrian goldings kiss. Soft, nice mouthfeel without too much carbonation. Gentle grassy hops, filled with fresh green tastes. Sessionable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I must have had this beer in absolutely perfect condition, given the low ratings. Amazing stuff. Overall, this was very light. Breezy, in fact. But the lemon and grass aroma and flavor it acheived through perfect hopping was just mind blowing to me. I loved it.
