3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle. Pale yellow-straw-tan. Steady white head. Insane fast rising carbonation bubbles. Has a lot more creamy, doughy, yeast notes than I would have expected, even though it is clearly filtered. Actually is the best Belgian Pilsener I’ve had maybe. Clean, not so much emphasis on the hops, more like a German Lager. A touch too thick on the palate so not really nailing the style. Overall, better than I expected, a decent malty lager.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Pale yellow brew with white head. Aroma of cereal, corn, a little yeast, a little mineral water. Taste is a little sweet, again cereal with a little corn overtone, a little earth and spice. Finish is mineral water and metal with a lingering sweet taste and final bitter tone that I associate with better pilseners. Sticky palate. This is not bland and certainly distinctive, but does come across as being as well balanced as I would like.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow. Small to no head. Sweet kinda corny aroma. Its good on the palate with.a.straw like quality but the.corny.sweet finish largely ruins it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Bottle from Asahiya. Very light sugar and grass. Clear light straw, thin head. Grass, powdered-sugar cookies, along with some decent bitterness. Thin-medium body. Okay, but barely. The corn lightens it up too much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft, Toronado. Served in a branded glass. Looks kinda like a gueze glass. Pours a bright, golden shade of yellow. Perfectly clear. Medium head which seems pretty good for a cold pour to the brim. Very white. Very fine bubbles. Good lacing. Aroma is a bit light on hops but there’s a fresh, pleasant grain character. It’s sweet and a bit doughy. The hops provide a little lemon and grass in the background. The taste starts sweet with pale malt. A bit more of that doughy, bready flavor. Nice lager yeasty note in the middle. Picks up some apple flavor which I don’t love. That apple cider flavor lasts into the finish which could use a touch more hops. What’s there is lemony. Mouthfeel is light but somewhat creamy. Gentle effervescence. Good pils but not fantastic.
