2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pilsner? double-hopped? i suppose double means they added hops twice while brewing and not any sort of doubled amount, since this is a weird bready malty mess. it vaguely resembles pilsner with none of the crispness that one expects with despite all of the lager yeast character. please, export more of this stuff so that it doesn’t appear on my local shelves.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear yellow brew with one finger of white head. Aroma of malt and mild hops. Taste is mild malt at the start with a decent hops present up front, finishes with a decent lingering grass & slightly citrusy hops profile. Pretty decent hops in the palate but not much in the aroma. Think palate but lively carbonation. Enjoyable!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Amber with small head. It says it’s a pilsner on the label, but this seems to have more malt and body than you’d expect from a pils. Light hops. Not awful, but not very good either.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. On tap at Dan’s on March 14. The pour is a not-quite-crystal clear golden color rivaling that of some macro beers. The head is thick, white and foamy, leaving decent, but pretty spotty lace. The aroma is quite malty. There is a decent light fruit character, and just a touch of hoppiness. I was surprised there wasn’t more of a hop presence, since it’s double-hopped. There is a light citrus note that doesn’t come through until the back end. The flavor is much more of the same. It’s a little more malty and a bit overly sweet, presumably from the wheat, The finish is dry, slightly hoppy. The mouth feel is decently thin, but clingy with soft carbonation and a dry aftertaste.
