3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Greenpoint Fish and Lobster on 4/15/16.
A clear, hay colored golden beer with a moderate sized white head atop that shows average retention.
Some cereal, light hints of citrus and various other cascade-induced hop notes in the nose. Rich honey and maybe a bit too much bread though no alcohol or flaw.
Sweet, bready, sluggish in the mouth, with moderately bitter hops. This is about as indelicate as you can get for a pilsner and even past the heavy honey-caramel-breadiness, the actual flavors are rather dull, stale and uninspired. Poor Full Sail, they’ve certainly seen better days.

On tap at the brewery. Pours gold with small creamy white head that lasts. The aroma is grass and citrus. Medium mouth, grass, hay, crisp, crushable, good.

12-ounce bottles in a pilsner glass. A little more bitter than most pilsners, but noticeably higher in alcohol as well. Not my favorite of its style, but good nonetheless.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Citrus, pine, resiny honey syrup, sweet malts. Tastes more lile a honey beer. Not really a pils and can’t taste the cascade hops so much. Very hazy yella with a little head. Not a bad beer and Full Sail is so likeable, I’m really bummed this beer isn’t what I thought it might be. I was hoping for a czech pils with a west coast hoppiness to it but its sweet and mildly piney. Shame.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. First impressions almost underwhelming: missing the satisfying crisp flush of a pilsner. Second impressions a little more positive: piney hop notes shine, giving this a nice west coast pilsner vibe. Still a little two malty sweet for the style & my tastes. As the beer sits the sweetness reveals more of a citrus base. Most confusing are the reviews below mine -- a crude copy & paste job directly below mine is baffling and other scores seem very high considering the dismissive written reviews. Whatever. Interesting & somewhat unique beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
While our Cascade Pils is inspired by classic European pilsners, this beer is really a celebration of the fresh, local Cascade hops grown by family farmers right here in our beloved Pacific Northwest. It has intense aromas of citrus and pine, supported by a medium body and dry malty palate.
Piney, hops. Not my fave.

Very nice beer. Hops didn’t come out too much in aroma. They were present in a pleasing way in flavor though and balanced nicely with the other ingredient. Extremely drinkable. Yum!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Haven’t met a pilsner I love yet, and this is no exception. Pours a clear golden with thin white top. Aroma is promising with a nice bready malt. Pleasingly the hop is mild and herbal. Flavor is okay with some of the malt lending a smooth balance of slight sweet. Finish is semi-dry, peppery and otherwise boring. Perhaps the common element of peppery spice to common pilsners hops is just not for me.
