(Sample Date: 5/19/2010 Source:Commercial Taphouse) Light spicy hop aroma. Very slight chill haze orange golden with small white head. Medium body and mouth. Moderately fruity with pineapple citrus hop notes. Pilsner with a American hop profile. Okay.

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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a chill hazed golden color. It has a tiny ring of head and some spotty lacing.
There is some strong malt coming through on the nose and a hoppy spiciness
The flavor is nice well balanced offering of various malts and hops. I am getting some light carmel. It does feel a little thin in some places.
It finishes with a little dryness and a hop bitterness that tends to linger around awhile. I would have to say more of a bold pil than most.This is the best beer I have had from these guys. Worth a shot for sure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice pilsener. Aroma was nice and hoppy with a spiciness to it. Pour was a nice cloudy medium gold with a 2 finger off white head. Taste was obviously American pilsener, but I’m not complaining. Sweet pils malt with a wet earhy hoppy aftertaste. Medium carbonation and a little thicker texture than I would like but decent nonetheless.

Pours gold into a lager glass. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Spicy hay and caramel aromas. Sweet caramel upfront with a dry, lasting, slightly sour and bitter grass finish.
