2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
while the description seems to emphasize the hops, i didnt really get an overtly hoppy flavor here. which is fine by me as im not into hop bombs. i think maybe the rye balanced it out, which im a big fan of. some toffee and butterscotch notes with a mild woody earthy note throughout. the finish is a bit off balanced and odd, but not unpleasant. id like to try this again sometime.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy dark gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of corn and light piney hops. Taste is light bitter. Pine hops and corn with a little bready malt. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and an average finish. Overall, not bad. Would be a great beer for drinking outside in the summer.

Pilsner is not my thing and this is no exception. Tastes and looks like a Pilsner, which is no bad thing, it’s just that I’m not keen on it!!

Grainy in the taste, golden body with decent head, a bit of grass in the aroma and then also comes through in the taste. Drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and fruit. Light body with flavors of bready malt, grain and lightly floral hops. The finish is sweet and malty. Pretty average overall.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Color was pale golden, almost like apple juice or dehydrated urine. About an inch of head. Healthy amount of lacing. Lots of film on the sides, which stayed throughout the pour.
Smelled of citrus and pine hops. Some light cereal malts in there, too, but citrus rules the day. A bit surprising for a pilsner.
Different taste than the nose, really a different taste than a pilsner. Watery, smooth start, which gave way to a very slight bitter finish.
Medium body. Texture ??? Lively carbonation. Smooth feel with a non-descript, but somehow decent finish.
I really liked this beer, especially after having the Albino Python first. Still didn’t taste like a pilsner to me, but a good beer.
