3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught Golden with orange shine; very small white rim. Faint hops, I can believe Czech, and a little fresh green leaves. Malt stays discreet; Good hoppy bitterbite, no metallic nor resiny tang. Malt again is just for backing. Light MF, "crisp" enough, specially in the aftertaste. Good pilsener, goes well with some of the food in the brewpub.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Pike Street location. Pours a clear golden-orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing throughout. Hops, yeast and malt in the nose. Light-bodied and effervescent with flavors of zesty hops, malt and milld yeast and spices. The finish is clean and hoppy with a light peppery and spiced aftertaste. Average overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Golden, light haze, moderate white head, foamy, attractive lacing with soft carbonation. Pale grassy nose, oats, subtle mustiness. Sharp grassy flavors, fairly bitter too. A fairly nice malty backside, slightly sweet, but also a touch metallic. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Somewhat bitter finish, metallic aftertaste in the back of the throat and on the sides of the tongue. Not what I was expecting for a Pilsener. Meh...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Elysian Fields. Pours medium gold, crystal clear, with definite bubble columns rising. Moussy thick white film. Kind of a mess on the nose--butter and dust and not so much of the grass that would be so nice to find here. Mid-palate is full and lovely with lots of spice and pepper and grass. Clean and easy drinking like a pils, but has sooo much American hop across the finish--a nice, clean, lingering cling, that.

Light golden yellow pour with big bubbles and a thin head. Aroma is a nice mix of light sweetness and Saaz hops. Drinks with a grainy sweetness and a good bitterness/grassiness. Crisp and well balanced, clean pilsner.
