3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Fitgers pours a clear orange/gold with a medium white head. Light hop and malt aroma. Taste of sweet honey and malt into a touch of pils yeast on the finish. Drinkable, but lacking a dry crispness, sweetness masks but of the elements of a pilsner.

All Pints North 2013. Dry. Lager yeast and pilsner malt aroma with some hops, but it doesn’t reach the flavor of a Czech pilsner. Not a bad summer beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draught at the Fitger’s Brewhouse in Duluth, MN. Pours a clear light pale golden brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind very little trace of head or lacing. Aroma of light bread-like malt and just barely some grassy hops. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation, some light grittiness with a light bread and herb flavor. Finish has a dry bitterness, a little watery with a light bread aftertaste.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a clear gold, lots of effervesence, with the size of the head dependant upon how aggressive the pour was. As I was in a hurry to drink this, the head is about an inch and a half, nearly white and soap-sudsy-like foam. Good head retention and even lacing. Smooth cereal malt in the aroma with nice grassy spicy hops.
The flavor is very similar to the aroma, a drier biscuity cereal malt with very nice tart Noble hopping. The hop flavor is grassy and spicy, and leaves a near-citrus bitterness in the finish. Also in the finish, there is a subtle lemony fruit flavor, ever so slightly sweetened.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-tap at the brewpub: Light golden hay with a big starchy topping of white foam that slipped away fairly quickly to its always present collar and skim. Lacing is adequately placed across the glass in lots of spots and connected strings of said dots.
Aroma is of the Pils malt with a slight soft breadyness thats dry and mixing lightly with some grassy Noble-like hops giving a split of herbalness.
Taste is pretty solid. Slick and crunchy quick with a nice rounded snap of toned pale bready flavors and quick to wet with a slightly drying finish of leftover bread crusts and a herbal grassy hops. A bit of a citric pinch squeezes out some bittering touches among its grassy edging.
Feel is about medium with a very nice snappy little grab at the front that yields to the malts and slows for the hops in the finish. Quite crisp, slightly dry, and altogether, very drinkable. A solid, sessionable Pils!
