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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery, Indy. Pale gold pour, with lively carbonation. Aroma is light and fleeting, with mostly fruity notes and a touch of grain. Body is crisp and appropriate, though the palate could be more dry. Slightly underwhelming flavors due to the relative absence of noble hops and bittering qualities. Okay but seems poised between pils and blonde.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at MacNiven’s in Indy, this is a fairly standard, European style pils. Nice hop character and decent flavor, but not really a top of the line offering. Still, worth a tasting and a good beer to go with some tasty eats.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at MacNiven’s in Indy. Clear yellow-golden pour with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of mild hops and fruit. Light body with flavors of grassy hops, malt and sweet fruit. The finish is lightly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent Pils overall.
