4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at GTMW ’11. Goddamn, why aren’t there more of these? Or why don’t they get the attention they deserve? It’s a full-flavored lager with plenty of grassy, classy, spicy hop character. Aroma was like sticking my nose in the foil bag from the homebrew shop. Moderately bitter in the flavor... gives you a little slap but sets no limits on your gullet. Also, bitchin’ name.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale gold. Tangy noble/citrus hopping and light sweet malts. Pale lager malts followed by even, refreshing citrus hopping. Crisp, lightly acidic, light on the palate. Easy to drink. An overall success for the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent pils with a light color but with some nice hop character. The light sweet bready malt hid well in the background allowing for the low hop character to stick out a little. Well blended brew but could have gone for a more fresh hop character. Did not seem to be dry hopped.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color, with lots of lacing. An enjoyable herbal/floral scent. It was a slightly spicy beer, with cloves being noticeable. Gently hopped. A surprisingly good pilsner.
