2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured with a deep golden color. Mousey small head that dissipated quickly. Aroma that of spicy hops web site lists Sterling as hops. Mild to noticeable amount of DMS in the aroma that came though in the flavor as well. Bright carbonation that gave a little bit of a bite to the beer, along with the listed 35 IBUs gave this beer a noticeable bitterness. Some spicy hop flavor appeared near the end of the bottle. Bready malt flavors came though with the 100% 2-row beer. DMS takes away from the flavor of a beer that otherwise would be a very drinkable beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: very light total aroma with a sulfury lager note dominating, followed by some grainy pils malt and very low nobel hop that is mostly floral. As it warms very faint DMS canned corn note.
Appearance: light gold with pinpoint bubbles rising to a frothy eggshell creamy head that disipates normally leaving moderate lacing
Flavor: spicy/floral nobel hop flavor and moderate bitterness leading the way followed by a fair amount of crackery continental pils malt and lightly fruity esters. Finishes clean with a side of the tongue bite that seems almost citrusy. No alcohol heat but strong enough to let you know its not BMC.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and well carbonated, soft round start that finishes medium dry. Very faint stickiness on the lips.
Overall: Bought within 30 miles of the brewery so its pretty fresh sample. Very drinkable. I’d fill an ice chest for a BBQ and this would be great training wheels for BMC folks. Probably not a world class example of a BoPils because after a pint you start to recognize tge Full Sail fingerprint. (House flavor) Its great concidering Hood River isn’t in the Czech Republic.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Full Sail in Hood River. Light spicy hop nose, with some sweetish malt. Golden straw color. Minimal malt sweetness, light buttery notes, and smooth gentle bittering in mid and final. Thin-medium body. Not bad. Doesn’t really quite get to a Bohemian pils level (missing the full aroma character).

Bottle from Wegmans/ Pours bright gold with white head. Nose is pale malt, mild hopcitrus. Tastes pale malty, with mild hops and honey-like sweetness and very little tartness. This is more a cream ale than a BoPils.

12oz bottle -
This was a nice little beer, one I picked up while shopping at the grocery store. A very delicate aroma of honey-ish malts, light corn/cereal nose with a touch of grass. Flavor seems to lack a quality Czech pils flavor and lack the character too. It’s not bad, just no trace of hops anywhere. A clean flavor with just a hint of sweetness. Easy to consume. But don’t kid yourself you’re getting a Czech pils, because you’re not.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and bright yellow gold body with a one inch tight bubbled foamy white head that left some light lacing. The nose is dry crackery malt with a nice bright hoppiness, a touch of light sulphur, and some doughy malt. The flavor is rather clean and well lagered, nice dry crackery and bready maltiness at it’s base with a lightly bitter but clean hoppiness. Finishes with some lingering pale malt and bitter hops. Light bodied and soft textured with light gentle carbonation. Pretty nice beer, I think the hopping is a bit off for my tastes though, I’d have rather seen some more hops in here, especially on the aroma.

aroma is pilner sour barnyard. apperance is clear yellow with hardly any carbanaton white soapy head that diminishes fast and very oily looking on top. taste is mild almost like dinking a watered down white wine. very clean and crisp soure spruce herb. overall not bad for a pilsner.
