3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured clear golden with a thick, fizzy white head. Mild retention but eventually faded. Nice biscuity malt with some hop tones and lemon zest. Some sweetness towards the end added depth to the finish. At $2.70 a 12oz this is a great drinking lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2014 draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. lightly hazed effervescent gold body with a fine-bubbled white head. light touches of sweet honey malt in the nose with soft floral and clean soap yeast esters and a soft and balanced cascade hop fruitiness that matches the body and sweetness well. has striking cleanliness with wonderful support of malt body & acid with zingy and fresh yet modest use of American hops. I feel like so many brewers would overdo the Cascade with this type of pilsner in hope of making a more bold beer for fest-goers, one that in my opinion would have been out of balance and less interesting and far less enjoyable than this. 3.9/5
May 2013 bottle version from a store in DC: yeasty / eggy smell; bitter unripe citrus pith and rind hop character; starchy, grainy and husky; saccharine sweetness. bad shape. This is nothing like the draft version had last year in Copenhagen; this is raw, worty, sweet, bitter with no balance and hence no reason to drink. 2.2/5

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber into a fluted glass. Pours gold with a slight white head that leaves loose lacing. Citrus, grass, biscuit. Taste is biscuit, fruits, grass, a bit of soap. Would love a bit more of a dry, crisp finish. The sweetness makes things a bit sticky.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, shared by Jay. Bottled 3/22/13. Nice clear golden color. Thin white head, leaves decent lace. Good sweet grainy taste. Light on the bitter, good balance in the taste. Medium body. Great, smooth lighter carbonation. Kind of crisp, with a lightly dry finish. Bready, light pepper, light bit of crisp lightly spicy lightly grassy hop, with some sweet grains overall. Wonderful, gimmick-free pilsner. This rainy spring day, I wasn’t in the mood for IPA, which is rare for me. This pils hit the spot perfectly. Crushable, easy drinking tasty brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is bread/almost whole wheat-like malts and citrus. The flavor is citrus, fruit, slightly nutty malts and a tangy finish. Better than the sum of its parts, a very good pils.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours gold with a small fading white head.
Delicate aroma, some spicy and herbal hops and cereal grains.
Flavours are the same - boring cereal grains and spicy hops with little else to back things up.
Carbonation is too high.
