Bottled (6.1%). Clear golden, small firm head. Grassy nose. dry with dense, powerful, rounded mouthfeel. Lots of grassy hops. An oversized pilsener packed with flavour. One of the better American pilseners.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2008 Bottled
Pale yellow color, cloudy dishwater head. Fresh lemony nose. Very lemony-flowery hoppy flavor - this is very fruity American pils and certainly close to original European ones. Tickling hoppy and fruity flavor.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of sweet malt and grassy hop. Hint of spice. Slightly hazy gold color with a white head that filmed immediately. Thin to medium bodied. Sweet fruit. Then a bready malt. The finish is a bit bland, but it is reasonbly bitter. Given the fruitiness, this is suggestive of an ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured a clear straw color with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, bread, light citrus and some light spice notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, light citrus and a hint of spice with a crisp clean slightly dry finish. One of the better pilsners I’ve had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a large, possibly overcarbonated, frothy white head. Aroma has some candy-like sweetness to it that I wouldn’t expect in a pils. The caramel candy sweetness makes this drinkable, but not very well balanced or true to style. Not necessarily a bad beer, but one that could use some tweaking.

Draft. Golden beer with a big white head. Creamy mouthfeel. Noble hops and some malt in both the aroma and flavor. It goes down smooth (and creamy), but there’s a bit of a metallic taste to it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty and sweet. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are nutty, fruity and fairly sweet. Hops are spicy and slightly bitter. Not a bad pilsner, it has some flavor and bite to it. Nicely balanced. Light and refreshing. A touch sweet and perhaps a touch watery, but a nice beer nonetheless. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
