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.

Nearly clear, yellow/gold with a tall white head.
Slightly smoky, wheat and lemon aroma.
Taste is much the same...light, malty, a little white pepper spicing....
Fairly bright and lively.
Very solid....liked this one a lot.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow pour. Herbal, somewhat saccharine nose; mint, lemon oil, white sugar. It lacks a rustic quality. Metallic notes blend with citrus oils to create an unpleasant tanginess.
The flavor is wrapped up nicely in grasses and and a pillowy chamomile note, though there is little to be said for malt foundation here. The finish offers a dry apricot skin and pith flavor with minimal length.
The body is light and crisp, while the perceived lack of malt balance gives it an intangible looseness. While pleasant enough to drink, there’s just so little pils flavor here.

Keg @ Brewdog Camden. Has a sharp hoppy taste for a pilsner. Crisp and refreshing. Nothing mind-blowing.

Poured from a bottle. Clear golden yellow. Decent malt flavor for a pilsner, nice and light though. Nothing great but a nice pilsner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl. oz bottle picked up at the Iron Abbey in Horsham, PA. The label says brewed by Evil Twin Brewing, Stratford, CT. Pours out light unclear golden, white head. A typical Pilsener on the nose with fruity parts. Starts herb like my Pilseners at home in northern Germany, but more malty and fruity elements in the backrow. Thinner ending. Not bad.

From Beer Temple. A little softer and malty than a crisp pilsner and the hops less herbal and more bold American hops. Serving: Bottle
