4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice mix of pilsner malts, spicy hops, a dash of floral hops and then a faint grainy malt note in the background. The taste starts with a pleasing fairly rich mix of pilsner malts and spicy slightly onion like hoppiness. Sweetness and more pilsner malts with a dash of floral hop bubble up about midway and into the finish. I love the hoppiness and how they keep the pilsner malt and malt sweetness in check.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale straw pour with bone white head. Bubbles continue to maintain a crown. This bottle has to be pretty fresh, but there is still a good bit of skunk in the nose. Also a little dough and herbal noble hops. A little skunk in the flavor as well. Honeyed toast, mint, lemon. Pretty firm bitterness in the back . Light and dry. Mouthfeel is moderate. A really nice crisp refreshing pilsner. Seems to have the same problem as Prima Pils, which is that it's a great beer that is just destined to suffer from life in a bottle. I'd love to see this one on tap or in cans.

Bottle. Clear light gold with a quickly settling thick white head. Aroma is slightly skunked with some honey-like sweetness and some Noble hop notes. Taste mostly follows suit but adds some light tea notes. Medium mouthfeel and strong carb. Seems like this is past its prime. Will try to re-rate.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Ausiello’s. Bright yellow with dense white head. Dreamy noble goodness springs forth from a sweet, cakey malt trampoline into the scent receptors. Flavor balance between delicate, soft malt, evenly pressing bitterness, and insanely great artificial blueberry noble hops is upset slightly by a spot of chalkiness that makes the beer come across as more sour (than dry) than it should. Not as hardcore as Prima, nor as subtle as Trumer, but an exercise in finesse comparable to both.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yellow pour, decent 2 finger white head. Hops in the nose. Lightly bitter. Middle is hard fruit (unripe pear) and malt. Finish is zippy hops. Went great with a simple ham sandwich.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral hop contrasted with soft honey malt. Light yellow color while profoundly bubbly and heady for this type of beer. Has that dry hop bitter to malty transition many Czech pilsners have. Not getting much citrus though. Crisp start with a drawn out dry finish. One of the best pils I can remember.

Had on draught. In a pils glass . This beer was a very enjoyable lager with a nice strong hop character. Flavor had a toasty note. Didn't note any off flavors or aromas Carbonation was good for style. While not one of the most interesting styles this is a good lager.

This is pretty great for a hoppy pilsner. It is very refreshing on a warm day and has enough character to keep you from downing it as quickly as possible. The hop aroma adds a nice freshness to the brew. It also has a super clear yellow appearance and a perfect thin layer of white foam. The taste is more complex with the hops adding a cut to the boring overly sweet nature of pilsners. The hop burb is the best part. And by the way, stop stealing my tomatoes!
