3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 12 oz. bottle, packaged on 06/19/2012 and consumed just 8 days later, the same day it hit the Orlando market. The pour yields a mostly clear, medium golden body that’s strewn with micro-bubbles. A thin, off-white head is quick to dissipate, leaving just a thin edge. There’s not really any lace to speak of. Aromas are classic, fresh pils...showing an clean, crisp, lightly-toasted white bread malt base with hints of flaked corn. Fresh Noble hops are grassy and snappy. There’s a hint of creamy yeast as well, but alas, it comes across a bit too boozy. Flavors follow suit, pretty well balanced but warm, with a dry bready malt base, doughy yeast, and crisp, sharp, biting grass hops. The palate is medium bodied, smooth, and drying from the alcohol. Each sip begs the next for the first half of the glass, but then it gets a tad but laborious. Overall, it’s a damn nice pils without too many flaws, but it’s overly warm for my liking (5% would be much better, and yes, 1% makes a big difference in a pils). It’s a good backup for when Prima isn’t fresh.

Pours very light yellow straw with head that goes away very quickly. Nose is cracker, lemon, fresh cut grass, noble hops. Taste matches nose, very grassy, lemon, crisp malt. I want a little more carbonation. It's ok, nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Homer321 - thanks again, Sean! Pours a somewhat cloudy bright straw gold with a small white head that leaves a lasting ring and a little bit of film. Aroma of cracker, pale, cereal, and pils malts, corn, straw, grass, and a dash of lemon juice. Flavor of corn, cereal, straw, crackers, grass, and some mixed fruits. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a malty, corny, dry mouthfeel. Not quite the refreshing hoppy American craft pilseners I’ve been digging lately, but good in its own right.

Bottle courtesy of Homer321, thanks again! Slightly hazy golden pour with a white head. Nose has a nice balance of malt and hops. Flavor is bright and refreshing with just a touch of citrus hops coming through. Very easy to drink. Crisp and refreshing.

Bottle to half-pint (shared with the Mrs; thanks newcigarz). Looks good for the style; a hazy lighter gold with white head that steadily disispates into lacing. Smells hoppy and floral with notes of pilsner malt and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Not very snappy, but pleasant nonetheless. A good example of the style.

Nearly no aroma. Appears clear with a slight haze gold, beautiful lace, frothy head. Taste is crisp, semi sweet of apple and mild European hops. Palate is fizzy and nice. Overall, this is a great pils.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed a pint of this beer on tap at the brewpub in Tampa. The beer had a light, clear gold color with an average-to-small foamy white head with low to short retention, good lacing, and average cling. Its aroma had a blend of grassy, grainy, and straw notes along with some scents of floral and pine hops. It was lightly bitter in taste with a blend of grassy and grainy flavors along with some floral and lightly sour flavors. The body had low to average carbonation with an average-to-thick mouthfeel, a dryish body, and a thinner mouthfeel, which was not watery.

12oz bottle. Color is a clear yellow/gold. Aroma and Taste are very balanced with light malts and hops. Up there with a style of a Gose when it comes to how refreshing it is. Great summer beer.

Sweet up front but fades quickly into a heavy hop flavor. Short draw which makes it easy to drink. Not my favorite but will try again
