3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very smooth, light, refreshing. A great summer beer. A sweet flavor which is light and doesn’t weigh the beer down.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Light golden body. Thin white head. Aroma of grass, raw grain, cracker. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness does not balance the overly sweet flavor. Husky grain.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
FROM NOTES: July 20, ’12
Poured from a bottle into a tasting glass.
A: Faint grainy notes.
A: Pours a light golden yellow, with a thin layer of head.
T: Initially it’s slightly spicy, slight citrus followed by malt with a bitter, drying finish.
P: More full than I associate with a Pilsner but still very clean. Maybe not as crisp as I would expect, but could be due to the ABV.
O: I’m not a huge fan of pilsners, but this one is a fine example.

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.

Really tasty; spot-on pilsner. I'll definitely revisit this beer. Has to be a top 5 pilsner for me(not my favorite style; sample size small)

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.

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.

3.6 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.
