2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: Draft at Fireworks.
It pours a light gold color with a small, foamy white head. The head doesn’t stick around long and leaves no lacing behind. The nose is very light with notes of grain and florals. The taste is unremarkable but clean with the grain, florlas, and a mild hop bitterness coming through. Not offensive, just not great either. Light body with average carbonation and a short, clean finish. It comes across as BMC competition or a brew for the casual summer cookout. Easy drinking and sessionable but not memorable at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a pale yellow color with a medium sized white head that lingered and produced good lacing. the aroma was crisp and sharp fruity and floral hops. The flavor was tangy, sweetish and bitter with a fairly strong fruity and floral hop presence and notes of lemon and grass. the finish was long with floral hops and turned a touch dry towards the end. Medium body. Solid.

22oz at Toad in the Hole. Gold with low but lasting head. Mild honey and malt aroma. Aggressive carbonation drives flavors of pils malt and sweet grapes. Sharp bitterness falls away quickly on the finish. Bigger body than its close competitors or its abv would indicate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from the bottle at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy light amber color with a medium frothy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, noble hops with some citrus, and an almost tea-like note. Taste is grassy hops, caramel malts, citrus and the same tea notes. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

On tap at redlight redlight. Pours golden yellow with a little bubbly head. Pleasant nose with hints of grass and straw under the hops. Subtle sweetness and nice hops in the flavor. Little lingering with touches of hay and a slight citrus. Not a horrible beer, but nothing meant to savor. Good session style pilsner.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at The Ravenous Pig. Pours a clear golden-orange color with a moderate head of smooth, snow white foam. Trace jagged lines of lacing mark the glass. The aroma is extraordinarily hoppy for a pils, definitely American style, with crisp, fresh, peppery grass notes showing over a clean, toasty, pils malt base. Flavors mirror the nose, again very fresh, with bitter, dry grass hoppiness cutting right through the underlying sweetness of the bready malts. Simple, yet effective. Drinks on the hoppy side of balanced. The palate sports a moderate body, with active, fine carbonation and a drying finish. It’s quite quaffable and refreshing. Good stuff. I could easily drink a few of these.

Tap @ OTH.
Pours golden, white head.
Aroma, smells like wort, lots of grain and malt goodness.
Flavor, load of rye?, really nothing I would expect fro a pilsner, plenty of malts quickly followed by some citrus hops and light spicy mouthfeel. Profile retain a mild caramel malt approach with a nice clean finish.
