2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Extremely light straw color. Almost zero head and lacing. Some straw and light corn and bit of greenness. Incredibly thin. Had low expectations for this and it still let me down. If I was rafting all day, this would probably be fine, but so would Coors Light..of which this is a decent interpretation. Beers like this have a very specific place...as does Coors Light. But if you are a ’craft’ brewer why try to make a beer like Colorado Kool-aid that you probably have to sell for 3 times the price? Pass.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a clear straw with a half finger of coarse white head. Settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is malty, bready, hoppy and vegetal. Flavor is bread, hop, bitter finish, with a soapy, chemical aftertaste. Moderate carbonation (though it is fleeting), light body, and thin, mildly watery texture. Not sure what I was expecting, but this is a disappointing beer no matter how you look at it. I have been fairly happy with the eddyline I had tried so far, but will not be having this particular brew again. A bitter, mild pilsener.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can pours a bright, clear gold with a white head. I love the part of the can that says "For Rapid Draining." Aroma has some sulfur, light hops, a bit of DMS. Flavor is pretty clean. Hoppy, a bit of sulfur, light body. A bit undercarbonated. I’d enjoy this on a boat with a goat, and green eggs & ham.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light greenish-yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of DMS, soap, shag carpet, metal.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, slightly metallic.
Bought and rated this for a laugh (the can design practically screams "swill"), and laughs we got! Vegetal garbage dump aroma that is saved only by noticeable hops. So dirty tasting that my friend literally spat his mouthful into the sink rather than stain his stomach. I suffered about 3 sips, but could go no farther. But maybe the problem is simply that I’m not a boater...if I were a boating gentleman, or even one that spent quality time on a pier, perhaps I would enjoy this more. We’re all looking forward to Eddyline Yachter Lager as the next entry in their Seafarin’ Swill Series.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can thanks to Errol. Nose is fruity, light earth, malts, and old. Thin palate, heavy fruits, bread, malts, and a not too good finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lots of flavor for a lighter looking pilsner. Great trade up beer for those interested in getting into beers with more flavor. I think this beer is well made, has good flavor and a good finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz can. Pours a thin short duration, white head, over a clear light yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is light malts, with hints of corn type sweetness.....taste is light malts, finishing with hints of sweetness, and light bitterness.....mouth feel light, carbonation high. This needs a great deal more from both the malt and hop backbones to become a Pilsener. It is more of a Pale Lager at this time. I can understand it as a light refreshing summer beer on a raft, or kayak but it is not a particularly good Pilsener. BJCP 5/2/9/3/5
