3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at DeSoto. Super solid Pilsner. Not lacking in flavor. Crisp and dry at the end. Screams noble hops- spice and grassy notes. Malt is biscuity. Bit of an odd finish- overly floral. True to style and very drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma impression is lightly hoppy with the signature lemon and "spicy" / pepperiness of Saaz, with a quiet note of cheese rind / must (guessing old hops). There’s a small dose of DMS in the aroma as well, giving it an iceberg lettuce unpleasantness. It’s medium-light bodied, lightly sweet with mild bitterness, showing off-notes of chemicals and soap in the finish. It’s not strongly offensive, the off-notes are pretty mild overall, but there’s also little clear impression of the hops and the malt is completely forgettable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour into a pint glass. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has grassy and herbal notes and bready notes. Almost lemony. Refreshing and super bready. Medium body and medium carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is grassy with no noble hops. Flavor of astringent hops that mask the malt. Malt flavor is grainy, simple and clearly not decocted. Rather underwhelming.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 2016-01-30. Yellow body, small white head. Aroma is oddly floral and grassy. Flavour is lightly bitter and quite floral, in a way I don’t care for unfortunately. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 5/3/5/3/12 Bottle shared by Sammy.
