3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a small, wispy, short-lived, white head. I’m getting nothing in the way of an aroma here, so It’s certainly not unpleasant. Light to medium-bodied with energetic carbonation. The flavor offers spicy, peppery bitterness flanked by grainy, biscuity sweetness. Trends a touch bitter overall with a crisp, snappy finish. Does a great job of accompanying an assortment of mild to sharp to funky cheeses, but pilsners aren’t really my thing. This one is what I consider "average" for a style with which I like to wash down food, but dislike overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355mL thanks to tastybeer! Pours a full haze uglier straw with weak foam. Nose is cantaloupe, chamomile, honey, candy corn. Taste is lemon soap, mild sugar, chamomile tea. Mealy, soapy palate. Somewhat juicy, but not a fresh bottle.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Clear golden yellow color. Minimal ring of white head. Couple dots of lace. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Medium body. Lightly dry finish. SMooth, easy drinking, and as refreshing as I hoped (was craving a pilsener). Good bready aroma, maybe a light pepper, but not much else to it. Moderate to stronger bitter taste, more than average for a pils but I’m digging it. Very enjoyable pilsener.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks decent; light though, even for a pils. A completely transparent light gold with thin white lacing. Smells of dough and pilsener malt with a mild bitter hop profile. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Lacks a pilsener snap, but okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Backlog rating on 9-08-2012 at Mad Anthony Brewing Company Oktobeerfest (Fort Wayne, IN). This draft beer has a large white head that mostly diminishes, pale yellow transparent body, very little carbonation observed, and an ample amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is sweet malt and grassy hops. The flavor is sweet malt, grassy hops and this beer has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. This beer is medium bodied and is very quaffable. It is not too hoppy tasting that it could be a session beer.
