3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at McGillins this past weekend. Light golden straw color with a smallish bone white head. Sweet malty bready aroma with a hint of spicy hops. Light bready honey like sweet malty taste with a hint of tartness to it. Decent pilsner but not nearly as refined or as cleanly fermented as some classic examples.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a creamy white head.
Aroma: The aroma has sweet malts and hints of citrus, it’s very tame.
Taste: Light malts provide a subtle sweetness with floral hints, though I pick up a tea-like presence.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a crisp beer that is nice for the summer, but I find nothing about it attractive other than the mouthfeel and appearance.

Wife poured a bottle so I grabbed a few sips. Golden color with white head. Aroma is light sweet malt and some citrus hop notes. Taste is much the same, more taste then a macro though. Light body, heavy carbonation, crisp, easy drinking with a dry finish. Decent average pils.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Misconduct Tavern with PJ and Pat. Pours a clear golden body with light lacing. Aroma is plain grassy hop, light catpiss and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of crisp grassy hops balanced by a nice malt bill. Nice pilsner, but next to the Great Lakes Gold, this didn’t stand a chance of getting a refill.
