2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Maple Tree Inn. Pours a slightly hazed deep gold with a sticky white head that dissipates, likely due to the alcohol. Nose is soft and spicy noble hops and sweet pils mingling with some sweet alcohol. On taste, this one reinforces my dislike of this style. Too much sweetness and esters for a pilsner. It just feels and acts wrong on the palate. Pilsner is misleading in the name as this shares little with that style. Meh.

Poured a golden color. Modest head that stuck to glass. Aroma was lite hops flavor, grassy and grainy. Taste was med-lite bitter. Smooth drinkin, kind of grassy flavor. Refreshing. Lite bodied, Biiter finish. Hops kick in at the end. Slick texture. Decent stuff. Good pilsner with a nice ABV.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Revolution... Pours a murky hazy gold, a tint of green, ugly. A light white head, not much to look at.. The aroma is weak, sweet grains with a hint of alcohol... The taste has no typical pilsner notes; not floral or bitter. Sweet at first, even sweeter finish, fruity pebbles come to mind. Bitterness in the form of alcohol. Not impressed at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Great pilsener aroma, beany hops, crisp and clean. Smooth. Medium golden hazy with huge off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Nice pilsener flavor, with medium bitter notes. A bit papery, but well done. A little ozone and BandAid at the finish, with clean smooth after.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy amber or gold in color with a rather foamy whitish head. There are distinct floral hops in there, along with their bitterness. Citrus, bready yeasty flavors, and a hint of grassiness. Interesting.

Straw yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is peppery hops, Saaz some nice toast and biscuit malt notes. Really strong clean drinking beer. Almost no alcohol presence. Dangerous and tasty.

750mL bottle. Bottled 2011. Clear yellow, thick bodied, creamy white head. Aroma of pils malts and floral / citrus hops. Scents of biscuit, bread, malt, and loads of citrus hops. Nicely dry-hopped. Tastes of biscuit, pils malt, and nice citrus hops. Loads of malt dominate this brew. So tasty.

A hyped-up (hoppy) pilsener. Very nice refreshing drink. Think: light Imperial IPA.
