3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a bright golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was sharp and crisp bitter perfumey and fruity hops with a touch of grape and noticeable alcohol. The flavor was bitter, bready, nutty and had a crisp citric hop presence and a note that reminded me of pretzel dough. The finish was very long bread, nut and fruit. Medium body. Solid.

Pours clear gold with minimum bubbly white head. Aroma sweeter with slight floral and yeast notes. Flavor sweet in front, but floral hop crisp dry finish which balances it out nicely. Overall, decent enough.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the bocktown in monaca. Looks like a typical clear pale yellow ale. Rather friendly at first. It has a tad of what I perceive to be pils in the background. However, as the session continues, this stuff starts getting this piercing bitter thinghappening in the background. IT builds thru the sesiion. Pointed bitter attitude. Unique flavors for a pils, weird at times. Yes, the finish has that astrigent thing going on in the back of my throat. Seens to be OK overall except for that pointed bitter thing going on. Good co2.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transparent straw color in the glass. Noble hops play a prominent role, which I enjoyed. Grainy malt base on the palate, could come together a little better in terms of smoothness and integration of different components but overall not a bad beer at all.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very odd pils. Aroma was weak. Light straw, grass and hints of lemongrass. Pour was a nice light clear gold with nearly no rising bubbles and no head. Taste was very odd. There was a strong malty sweetness coming out in the front and a nice portion of grassy hops balancing it out in the aftertaste. Instead of melding, they seem to work separately. the sweetness has some honey notes while the bitter aftertastes leaves notes of burnt butter. The little to no carbonation is what kills this beer for me. A pilsener should be crisp and refreshing. This is flat and lifeless. All around not a terrible beer but not one I’d seek again

Bottle. Pours a light gold with a thin white head and aromas of skunky hops and light honey/biscuit malt. Flavor is an interesting ebb and flow of sweet and hops... a bit of that honey buns sweetness washes back and forth with herbal and grassy hops flavors, usually settling on a slightly bitter and dry finish, but every now and again, a bit of pear sweetness sticks out and hangs on for the ride.
