1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle from the sampler case. The worst of the four in the pack and a big disappointment. A sour and bitter taste prevails with very little else to recommend.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml twist off bottle. Clear gold pour, fizzy white head. Fairly bland aroma, floral hops and pears. Flavor is strangely fruity, like froot loops fruity, sweet lemon lime and citrus, its unoffensive but is not reminiscent of a pilsener.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Always glad to see when an obvious contract brew is done by Genessee as I feel like they tend to do a decent job of it. Unfortunately, that is not the case here. This bills itself as a pilsener but is really more along the lines of an American blond as far as taste goes. It is a golden beer w/ a white head and nice sheets of lace. The nose is pretty bland, just a bit of toasty malt and some vague fruity citrus flavors seemingly from hops. This is simply sweet rather than malty and as such feels a bit heavy on the palate despite somewhat vigorous carbonation.To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this beer, just something clean and drinkable, and I didn’t even get that.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Gold and pretty clear appearance with a white head. Crisp with light pilsner malts. Light sweetness and light spicy, noble hop bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor haveppilsner malts, crackers, mild noble hops with some lemony citrus, ok, but I wouldn’t revisit this again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a clear pale color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. This beer just met my expectations.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to half-pint. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of pilsner malt, mild hops, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not much of a pilsner snap, but not bad, and definitely exceeded my expectations.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent pilsner with some not entirely successful malty bitterness. Fairly low on hops for the style and rather tart on the finish. Easy drinking and quite refreshing.
