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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear honey color with average white head and a little lacing. Aroma is not strong, but has plenty of grainy bread, some lemon, caramel, and a touch of floral hops. Not skunky at all, unlike some of the best green-bottled European pilseners. Taste is initially on the sweet side with a slightly bitter finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Quite refreshing although nothing close to outrageous. This one exceeded my expectations.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy gold with good effervescence & pillowy white head. Medium basement & hay aromas; medium-bodied with grain and hay flavors & malty ovetones but good effervesence. Nice balance, good finish. Not as crisp as some pilsners, but that’s probably why I like it.

Bottle from my sister for my birthday. Brilliant orange pour with decent rocky white head. Grainy aromas with earthy grassy hop aromas. Flavours are slightly sweet with subtle hop finish. Nice easy drinking beer.

12 oz bottle. Surprisingly good pilsner. Light hops on the nose, but a nice hop bite and a clean finish. Well crafted, tasty. I don’t have anything else to say.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dan's. The pour is a clear yellowish with a nice white head that fades down slowly. The aroma is pretty citrusy. There is a little bit of a malt character and a good floral note on the back end. The flavor is very similar. I like the floral nature mixed in with the good hop character. The mouthfeel is thin, but there is a good carbonation and a sweet, hoppy aftertaste that helps out pretty good. I like it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle listed as 5.5%. Pours an orange gold with nice frothy white head. Aroma is lightly spicy, with rye notes, cayenne pepper, biscuit like malt, cajun. Flavor is spicy hops, not much malt, with a bitterness on the finish I find a bit astringent. Not bad, but won’t be back. Probably better on draft.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear gold with white head. Taste zesty hops, floral, slightly sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.
