2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a pilsener glass. Beautiful straw yellow with about 2 fingers of head that quickly disappeared. Taste is typical American pilsener, not even close to a traditional German pilsener.

Had a pint on tap at Bar Louie. Very solid, refreshing with a slightly hoppy backbone.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Translucent, golden-yellow with a bright, white, bubbly head that quickly turns into a thin film. Aroma was weak; faint grains, biscuit, a hint of lemon zest, & a touch of spicy Noble hops. Earthy, but light. Taste included more light pilsner malt, just a hint of sweetness, reminders of bread, steel, & a touch of dirty, dry, earthy hops. Finishing bitter bite, clean with lasting metallic & yeast notes... Mildly astringent. Pretty drab & boring overall, even for a pilsner. Not awful but not executed very well.

Bought at Trader Joe’s. Very bland, nothing special at all here. Not sure what I was expecting going in though.

Bottle. Light yellow pour with a trace of a white head. Grassy aroma with a hint of spices. Pretty bland tasting with only a hint of bitterness in the finish. Watery texture with average carbonation. A slight step above the macro pilseners.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 9/4/2012. Pours fairly crystal clear golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass; with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, apple, grape, floral, grass, cracker, bread, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and yeast esters with a fair amount of hops; and solid strength. Taste of cracker, bread, floral, pear, apple, pepper, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of cracker, bread, light fruits, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Good balance of malt and hop flavors; with light ester fruitiness and a slight astringent tang on the finish, but it isn’t too bad. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a pretty solid pilsener style. Good balance of malt and hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. An enjoyable offering.
