3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bottle of this fine beer came to me courtesy of Durhambeer!
Pours a very pale golden, perfectly clear, with a very small head.
The aroma is herbal and "robustly" hoppy. The malt sweetness while noticeable is either very low or hidden by the spicer & more herbal hop character.
The flavor is mineral-y & enjoyably bitter. The hops are well featured and of course very saaz-y with nice notes of grass, herbs, and mild fruit skin. The beer is only lightly sweet and very bright.

Gatlinburg Walgreen’s bottle. Straight from the bottle after house work. Nice, hoppy pilsner. Not timid and not boring. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; a very slightly hazy gold with white head. Smells of lager yet and mild hops and pale malt. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, and with more of a hop presence as well. Nice on the palate with a bit of snappiness. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep golden hue, nice initial head, and brilliantly bubbly. Sweet starchy aroma. Drinks with a firm corn-malt base and adds in a spank of Bohemian hops that dominate the finish. Not as snappy as the best of this breed, but definitely drinkable. (#5427, 2/6/2014)
