2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured at Applebees into brewtus glass. A pale yellow with white head that was think and lasting. Aroma was light, wheats, grass and some hops. Taste was fairly light, some hops came through a mostly malt base. Lemongrass in the finish with a little bitter. Was happy to try a local brew but it didn’t leave me happy. I hear they are building their own brewery a few towns up so here’s to the future.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the hotel my company had its conference at. I must admit that i have some slight fascination with the pre-pro pils style. This, unfortunately, just came across as a rather bland and slightly unclean lager. Poured a clear yellow gold, slight head. Aroma was lightly malty, but had to search for it, mostly pale malt, hint of what I was assuming to be adjuncts. Flavor matched, the search party sent out for hops came back with only a whisper of dust. Very faint DMS. Not a disaster, but just not very enjoyable either.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, screw-top. Nose is grassy pils malt with spaghetti sauce funk and seemingly (!) related herbs (basil, oregano, etc.). Wtf? Lazy golden body with slow, mild carbonation and a white head. Taste much the same as in the aroma, some good malt mouthfeel and a little complexity but the spicy/herbal character which I presume comes from the hops is a bit of a deterrent for me. Mild citrus, little bit of husky grain. Lightly crisp, flabby and heavy body, mostly sweet with a slightly unclean finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smooth, with a clean white head. Not a typical pilsner, with a bit more hops and body. Easy drinking, especially with burgers or shellfish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Pours caramel colored with thick white head, does not linger long. Aroma is cotton candy, rose petals. Cotton candy-sweetness on the palate. Mixed bag of sweet, candied sugars. Not what I think of as a pilsner.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is grains, malt, hops, and grass. Flavor is malt, grain, and hops. Medium to light body. Slightly bitter aftertaste. I can see this a a good summer/beach beer.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy dark straw with minimal off-white head. Nose is sweet honey-like pale malt, hops, white peppery spice. Tastes somewhat tart, with notes of pale malt, bittering hops, white peppery spice. Medium palate heft, and overall decent.
Re-rate: Kicking this one down somewhat as I get ready to drain pour half a bottle.
