3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pale golden beer with a thin white head. Aroma is great. Big, punchy, zesty fragrance. Lots of bright grassy, citrus character. Light lemon balm over a crackery malt base. It doesn’t really taste all that big, but as a regular pils, it’s rock-solid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber thanks to Yobdoog for sharing and Erway for hooking up our gathering. Pours a pure clear straw golden with a nice sticky white head. Aroma is very fresh herbal and spicy noble hops- lightly flowery- which mixes nicely with the big rich bready fresh pils malt, but does not get honey like or overly sweet- reminds you of a great pils but just a bit more intense. Flavor is also very pils like just amped up a bit- incredibly fresh pils malts, doughy bready with lots of flowery hops- light spice, and a creamy clean and moderately bitter finish. This is a great big pils.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Mild aroma of floral hops and just a bit of fresh bread. The flavor is stronger than the aroma with a solid dose of fresh bread and an equally solid dose of floral hops towards the finish. A bit of citrus emerges at the finish as well. Crisp and refreshing. Enjoyable.

Bottle courtesy of erway. Thanks for sending this and giving us a chance to try. Light clear yellow golden color with a magical glow to it. Just crystal clear. Aroma of light pine, citrus, sweetness, bready pilsner character and a touch of dry earthyness. Taste is crisp and clean and quite refreshing given the medium body. Smooth and sweet with a nice floral and citrus hop balance. Alcohol is well masked and this was a pleasure to drink. Its become harder for me to find a pilsner that I enjoy drinking because of that green bottle taste and this changed my perspective quite a bit!
