3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured two fingers of head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is grain and pine. Mild but nice.
The taste has mild pine bitterness with some honey sweetness in the middle. Finishes with mild dry bitter note.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable. It’s a little less bitter than most pilseners.

355ml bottle pours a golden color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral and fruity with some spiciness. Taste is fruity and malty sweet with a citrus and light spicy hop bitterness. Light bodied with lots of carbonation. Nicely done and highly recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Mile High Denver. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a big fluffy, off white head. Pretty bright, a bit juicy, grassy/herbal hoppy, nice herbal pils malty, hay aroma. A touch sweet up front but dries out pretty well toward the finish. White grape, mild tropical fruity, lemon fruity, honey, a bit peppery flavor. Not a bad Pils.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pour is hazy yellow with a big white head and great lacing. Crackery, straw, somewhat grassy, chalky, doughy, and minerally aroma. Taste is semi-sweet up front, with touches of grain, straw, sweet corn, and chalk through the middle ending with a medium grassy bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with crisp carbonation. Pretty easy-drinking, zippy and crisp - tasty pils.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from ølbutikken. Acc. to label, brewed for Evil Twin at Westbrook (not fanø).Clear yellow, small smooth white head. bitterhoppy, aroma, dry, faint notes of oranges and exotic fruits as it warms up. Flavor is malty, exotic fruity and slightly hoppy bitter - a bit too cloyingly sweet to be a nice pilsener.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a cloudy golden color. The head is a two finger white shade. Texturing is more frothy than creamy, with a floater in the middle suggesting a good hop profile. Plenty of lacing is left on the glass, too, also suggesting a good hop profile.
S: This seems to be loaded with a few ’Merican hops, which is a welcoming presence. They provide notes of grapefruit, apricot, and grass. There also seems to be a vegetal note hidden in there that I don’t like too much - evoking green bell peppers. Otherwise, solid.
T: It takes a bit of time for the hop profile (and the welcoming bitterness) to hit the palate, but when it does, it introduces notes of apricot, pine, grapefruit, and maybe some nettle. Not much malt presence - a good thing. Only the vegetal hints of bell pepper keep this from being great.
M: This has a crisp bite to it, along with a dry finish. Pleasantly bitter on the palate, too. Moderate carbonation does a good job of quashing any potential for a syrupy texture.
O: A really solid pilsner. The price point ($11/4 pack) only seems cheap in comparison to other Evil Twin brews - taking that out of consideration, this is actually pretty damn expensive. Shame about that price, because this is up there with both Sunshine Pils and Prima Pils in my opinion.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 20.06.2013, tap @ Tørst:
Small mediumlasting head. Aroma is pretty neutral, light malts, leafs, newly cut lawn, hops, herbs, hay, pepper, hints of citrus peel. Taste is dry grassy, lots of hops, light malts, hay, newly cut lawn, herbs, caramel, yeast, bark. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel, high on carbonation. Nice enough, too dry and hoppy for my taste.
