2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pale gold. Head clings to glass in a skirt but fades to a ring. Nose is immediately sweet and light maltiness and some buttery diacetyl present. Flavor is sweet malts with a richness enhanced with some sweet buttery stuff going on. Not infected but just some diacetyl.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, poured into a pilsner glass.
Dark straw pour with a fine white head. Fair lacing.
Medium mouthfeel, strong carbonation.
Aroma is bready malt with a citrusy hop background.
Flavor is bready malt, citrusy lemony hop flavor. Assertively bitter finish without astringency. No DMS, no diacetyl.
Very refreshing. A great example of a Bohemian pilsner. Nice balance of hops and malt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours mostly clear but for fine suspended particulate, straw-golden with a thickish eggshell head that settles to a thick ring and leaves plenty of hanging clumpy lace. Nose of fresh bready malt, doughy yeast, and light spicy hops. Fairly sweet with a little more bitterness. Softer carb, medium bodied, round, with a fairly lengthy crisp bitter finish. A nice pilsner, imminently drinkable, solid flavor, well put together.

Very smooth, light, refreshing. A great summer beer. A sweet flavor which is light and doesn’t weigh the beer down.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours hazy yellow color with white heads that doesn’t last long. On the aroma side I get some mild malt scent and very little on the hops. The flavor is crisp enough for a pils. Not sure what hops were used but for me plainly mild. Overall a decent German pils.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden color with a fizzy white head. Very little nose with faint hops. This is a very hoppy pilsner. Some cracker malts with strong grassy hops. Easy drinking beer that went well with the buffalo shrimp.
