2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5.23.03 12oz bottle. Pale golden yellow and a medium white head that fizzes away. I don’t get what makes this a pilsener other than the label; it seems like a regular High Life on steroids. Grass seed, lemon, wonder bread.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Let’s get one thing straight: I don’t like pilsners, and they don’t like me. However, we had agreed to tolerate each other until I drank this beer. What a letdown from such a fine brewer. Why are they using anything other than Cascade hops? Pass me the Old Boardhead, I will have nothing to do with this beer ever again.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a creamy head with a golden, highly carbonated body that matches the color of the label. Drinkable, having a little zinge, but a pilsner all the same and with a bitter aftertaste.

Not enough hops for a pilsener. Tastes stale. Palate reminds a little bit of lemon flavored detergent.
