2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colour. Slightly fruity (lime, mandarin) and this is probably from the Simcoe hops. Spritzy. Bready malt notes and crisp, moderate bitterness (~25 IBUs). Dry finish. Light body. A north German pils with PNW hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, grainy and a touch grassy. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity and sweet, with hints of orange and lime. Hops are slightly spicy. Sprizty carbonation. Nicely balanced. Light and refreshing and nicely drinkable. There is a slight hop bite for a pilsner. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean an crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Had on tap at the brewery. Very nice! Lots of malt flavor and aroma backed up by some noble hops. THis is loaded with flavor and has a moderate mouthfeel, unlike lots of american made pilsners which are bland and watery.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy of unnoted size long lasting white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was hazy and yellow in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild dirty sock off smelling . Its mouth feel is initially tingly bubbly and off with a strange malty dirty sock finish. Its flavor contained malty dirty sock notes. Not one I would buy again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2006 I am not a pilsner fan in general. This beer came as part of my beer club but it took me a while to get around to trying it. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium golden color with a very small white head. There was a light malt aroma and a nice flowery hop scent. There was a bitterness on the finish. The flavor was sour and surprisingly hoppy with noted flowery and mild grapefruit notes. The finish is bitter and hoppy. A rather nice pilsner overall.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light with almost no head; looks thin. Minimal, slightly sour/bitter nose; flavor more malty than hoppy (this is a Pils?), very smooth; smoothness also present in the finish. Very light fruitiness throughout; thirst-quenching and drinkable but not much of a Pils if you ask me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2005 bottle. Served in a lambic flute at about 45 degrees. Pale orange body, light peachy-apricot tones, lighter gold/yellow notes, clear. Medium-sized bubbles rise to the top to form a moderate amount of white head. Retention is fair. Aroma of earthy, fuzzy hosp, lots of grass and wet green leaves. A bit of sourish-mineral-like yeast and I do believe I detect a little fruitiness (which is pleasant but out of style). Perhaps some red apples and nectarines and tangerines. Flavor is quite dry, though there is a good pils malt honey flavor that adds a decent backbone. More mineral-like notes, soft, not-bitter hops are everywhere, with quite a crisp finish and some graininess lingering. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting, decent lacing, carbonated, slightly hazy, and a yellow hue. Malty, hoppy and a sweaty sock aroma. Not very inticing. Bitter and hoppy flavor. Tingly, bitter, hoppy palate. Light-medium body.
