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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Translucent sunburst with hazy golden edges, capped off with a bubbly, semi-soapy bone white froth that leaves some nice lacing as it quickly settles. Aroma of crisp bread, lightly toasted with slightly sweet pilsner malts, biscuits, creamy yeast, & a lightly bitter earthy hop overtone. Some fresh milled grains, too. Flavor is more hoppy than the nose initially leads on. Somewhat floral, earthy, & even with a bit of bitter citrus peel out of the gate. Still has that nice pilsner malt base with notes of biscuit, lightly toasted bread, & husky cereal grains. Faintest hint of DMS & a nice mouthful of yeast with a hint of white pepper earthiness in a mostly hop forward finish. Finishes mostly clean, a touch dry, & modestly bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy, golden body. Frothy, white head, diminishing. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, light resin, grass, raw grain, bread. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. On the edge of being a pale ale — a pilsener with citrus flavors. A bit heavy for a pils, but pleasant enough despite hints of raw grain.

SWBF 2014. Pours a semi-clear orange with a low white head. Aromas of citrus, elderflower, yuzu, funk and lemongrass. Taste is a bit sour in a very nice way with some elderflower and lemongrass as well with some lemon zest. Mouthfeel is thin with medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Village Pub. Pretty clear light golden pour with a clingy white head. Nice pils aroma. Maybe some corn. Rich but subtle and easy drinking. I’m digging it for the style.

Corn, barley and malt in the aroma. The taste is fruity. Good bitterness which sits in the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. Still, quite tasty to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hay nose. Crystal clear yellow, enormous head, fair lace. Malty and grassy but the malt seems to dominate. Light body, prickly. Pretty nice north german style pils. Could use a bit more intensity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really nice pilsener. Aromas of citrus and grains. Similar flavors with a nice hoppy punch that sticks around at the end. Good stuff.
