2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This one poured a clear pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of corn adjuncts grassy and a little sweet. Flavor was corn, bready, sweet and a bit grassy. Decent for a lager, but not good.

On tap at the Church. Pale golden with little head. Mild hop aroma. Crisp palate, mellow malt with mild hoppiness. Typical lager, not bad but not amazing.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured into a pint glass, this pilsner barely foamed at all, leaving only a crown of head and no lacing. bubbles of carbonation continue to rise through this very light golden brew.
Smells quite interesting for a pils. Not your usual bland smell, maybe a touch hoppier than I was expecting.
Taste is ..hm. I think non offensive is the best way to put it, perhaps to a fault. A tad on the watery side. Starts off smooth and ends with a fun little bitter crisp, but I would like a little more to it.
Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is at a good level. No complaints here.
Drinkability is good, I could pound these or sip them at a social level. That said, I would likely not try this one again.

On tap in Church- Poured a light gold with small white head. This had a wheat grain body with a slight bitterness, bit of a dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brewed in the USA..... On tap at the Brew Works !!! Pours a golden color with a small white head. Aroma of malts, grains, yeast and floral notes. Taste of malts, lemons, bread and a slight chalky flavor. Mouthfeel is kind of dry !! where is the hop bitterness? Not sure, but still was pretty drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by TheCaptain, thanks Mark. Clear gold with a thin head. I took this to be more of a Helles style lager than anything else. It was very malt forward with a slight hint of hops and a bready sweetness. Not bad but nothing too exciting.

now this is in my mind is quite an interesting feat in brewing since it is fairly rich in color and taste considering its light abv. i think many beer drinkers have appreciation for a beer that is satisfying and interesting enough to drink and i enjoyed this particular beer for that reason. perhaps some divine intervention from "the powers" still lingering at this beautiful brewery it is a true beer enthusiasts "find". nice hop and malt presence with fruit and bitterness and touch of sweetness that does not overly linger, yes, pleasant is usually good!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a lightly hazy medium golden color with a large, foamy, off-white head. The foamy displays nice retention, and leaves patchy lacework on the glass. Aromas are a bit off, corn malt and wheat grains showing a weird, phenolic sort of yeast overtone that could hint at mild infection. There are some floral hops there as well, but the strange yeast note clouds everything up. Flavors show similarly, with honey glazed cereal grains and mild floral hops being overshadowed by hint of aluminum and a strange, yeasty element. The mouthfeel is fine for what it is, light to medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Drinkable, but not something that I would ever seek out.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft… Clear light yellow lager with no head. Sweet, grainy nose with additional notes of toffee and acetaldehyde. Light to medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. Sweet and thin with low bitterness – notation of acetaldehyde. Crisp, bland finish.
