12oz bottle 2/17/11 (Binny’s-Downers Grove singles rack)-54° in Flute-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops, malt, and grass. Taste of the same with some more hops. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite easy to drink. Another good brew from Schmaltz. Nice job.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lucent gold, thin white head, medium body, medium-high carnation.
Aroma: hay, pale malt, herbal noble hops.
Taste: hay, herbal noble hops, pale malt, and bready yeast.
IMO, more of a pale ale with german hops than a pilsner.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle acquired at beermuda in new ken. Smells pilzy and a little veggie on the pop. Some pilsner bite on the first taste. Much less bite than stronger pilsners so its a little enjoyable even tho it does have a definate beer personality. Pale colored and medium pilsner finish. Decent beer experience.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
If I hadn’t been perusing the tap list for a new tick, I probably wouldn’t’ve found this beer, and that would’ve been a shame. Very enjoyable. Spicy and sweet, with an odd flavor I couldn’t quite pinpoint. I see here that rye was involved, so I suppose that could explain it. Very tasty beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Half Pint, NY ($6): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma of grain, hops, and some sweetness. This is certainly no super dry German pilsener (even though it was dry-hopped), instead it was somewhat sweet (no surprise that a lot of people are speculating about the corn... but maybe it was the rye). There is moderate hops, but not in a really interesting way. I mean it is a very drinkable beer, which is not at all offensive, but then again not all that great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at the Rattle ‘n Hum, 10/8/10
Aroma: The nose has some crackers, lemon, herbs, yeast, and floral notes
Appearance: This is a clear golden colored beer with a nice white head and solid lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet malts, lemon, spice, and balanced by some floral hops
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a crisp "pils" feel to it and a good drinkability
This turned out to be a pretty solid Pils. It has a nice look, and a decent flavor. Drinkable and somewhat enjoyable. Nothing special, but not lacking much either.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden color. Aroma of grain, dough and caramel. Flavor is grain and grass. Very clean and smooth. Very refreshing. One of the best Pilseners I have tasted and I don’t like pilseners! This has a bit more hops and character than others.
