3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 10/23/2013. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and floral/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and clean yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, floral, grass, light pine, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, floral, grass, light pine, cracker, bread, light honey and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of hop and malt flavors with minimal yeast ester presence; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pilsner style. All around nice balance and robustness of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy light golden color with a bone white head with decent lacing. Aroma of grain, cracker malt and some grassy hops. Taste is more flavorful than macro pilsner with a mild graininess along with some honeyed biscuit sweetness and breadiness. Mild but decent amount of grassy bitterness also for a pilsner. Finishes dry with a bit of bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp with a light/medium body and moderate carbonation. Very drinkable and clean. My kind of Pilsner. Would drink again.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Torst. A hoppy Americanized version of a pilsner, not the more authentic FIrestone version. Lots of lace and head. Saaz hops really come through.

Bottle pour. Had on tape at Tørst, but I think I like it more out of a bottle. Nice pilsener flavor (with some sweetness on the nose) and a great bitter finish with good balance. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow pour from draft with very foamy head. Draft at the Dawson. Fruity wheat and slight hops. Nothing great but good for a pilsner.
