3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Satisfaction on Main Street in Durham. Seemed like a typical sports bar but we were waiting to meet up with friends at another place and this was a discounted draft. Pours a clear, bright gold with a big white head. Aroma of bready malts, straw, grass, herbal hops, and sweet grains. Flavor follows along those same lines, but I got a better quality from each of the notes as I drank it. Light-bodied, with high carbonation early that mellows and an light malty mouthfeel. Based on the other reviews, I’m sure this would have been much nicer at the brewpub or serious beer bar where the lines are cared for better.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks the part of a typical pilsener with a rich golden color and a thin creamy white head. The aroma has a dull, earthy bitterness that is pleasant but a bit muted. The flavor is more potent, with the same noble hop character coming through on top of a decent malt base. The texture is a bit thicker than a typical pilsener, being more resinous than crisp. Overall, this is a fine beer, but it doesn’t really impress.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a great Pilsner, no bite, closer to a Koelsch Ale with a good head for an American Pilsner, fruity notes and a little lacing but not a Pilsner

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is very light yellow-straw. Nice two-finger white head. Fruity aroma (peaches and pears). Very light mouthfeel. Nice bitter finish which was surprising. Nice, light beer that would be a good summer refresher.

Draft sample at the 13th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Pale in the glass with a white head that settle to a ring. Lemon and grain in the aroma. Grainy flavor with a hint of citrus. Light body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Foothills. Golden orange in color. Light floral hop aroma with some malty sweetness. Smooth, pleasant taste. This is not bad for what it is and the fact that I like this at all is saying a lot considering it is a pilsner.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Light gold color with a small, foamy, white head.
Aroma: Light nose with notes of grass and a touch of grain.
Flavor: On the tasteless side with notes of malt, grain, and grass. Rather unspectacular.
Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a light, watery mouthfeel and a medium-short finish.
Overall: Skip this one. There are much better Pils out there to be enjoyed. Not recommended.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft. Clear crisp pilsner. Hard style to say yeah or nay to since I don’t care much for it. But for a pilsner, nice.
