3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz green bottle.
After I pop the top there is no skunk luckily. It pours an incredibly pale and light straw yellow, really really light, the head is big and white and quickly dissipates.
t smells like your typical German Pils, it has a malt/hop balance. This one has a little more malt than most. The hops are grassy/medicinal/herbal.
The taste is also maltier than most pilseners. There is a light hop bitterness but overall this is too sweet for a pils.
It has high drinkability I’ll give it that, but it is below average for a German made Pils, still better than most American ones.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 Clear golden liquid with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops and some malt. Medium bitter taste, but not much variety in flavour, mainly a hops taste. Soft and oily body with a bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Straw gold, 1" head of foam, great lacing.
Grainy-corny nose with noticeable hop bitterness, typical aroma you get from a green bottle=light struck but not severely.
The hops are bitter, grassy. The malt is sweetish, grainy. The beer is more bitter than sweet. Should be an achieves that.
On the high end of light bodied, perfect carbonation.
The brewery makes some tasty brews and this is no exception. Reasonably priced too. I like.

Clear golden colour with a medium white head. Can smell straw, grains, malt and a light floral note... Nice carbonation and a light texture and body. A short bitter hop note with a light grainy taste to it. Finishes quickly and is refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy bright straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness; with a very slight bit of skunk presence. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Flavors are quite clean with no obvious skunk notes in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good German pilsener style. All around good balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.
