4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Light yellow-orange pour. Aroma is light, pale malts, grass and wheat. Flavor is equally light with citrus notes mixed with grass. Slightly skunky. Very drinkable. Light body.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap (2009) in a pint glass. Aroma is malty and the flavor is sweet malt with a grassy dryness that lingers. The body is a little much for me, but overall it’s a decent brew.

2009 Bottle of The Chosen Spot- Thanks Eyedrinkale! Pours clear orangeg with a small white head...aroma is full of rye spice and sweet citrus fruit, light hops and honey?...flavour is similar, sweet and grainy, much more rye in the nose than in the taste, but nicely fresh and bitter, sweet grass...finish is a bit hoppier and rounds it out nicely!
