3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the Salem brewpub. The beer pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with a thin white head that burns away quickly to a film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, grassy hops and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, mildly spiced hops and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hop aftertaste. Average overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Keg at the taproom, 10/11/14.
Clear golden with moderate off white spotting.
Nose is pale malts, straw, grain, cereal, paper, rather thin.
Taste comprises light caramel, more paper, straw, sweet notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Generic brewpub pils, infcat a sub par one at that, the blandometer was rising way past amber on this one!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear dark golden/amber color. Nose had a lot of corn on there, with a fair amount of grains. Taste was slightly sweet, with corn and toast coming through to me. Not really a huge fan of this one.

Salem Oregon, draft. Okay beer for a lager. Better than an American lager...good kolch lager. Light color, pretty good body characteristics.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours clear dark gold. Light hop aroma. Med body. Flavor is lightly nutty - enough to improve a pale lager. A little bready. A little hop in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at Gilgamesh The Campus. Clear golden color. Sweet nutty aroma. Never had a pilsner-style lager with such a dense flavor, with sweet filbert notes and a touch of herbal spice. Quite smooth and sessionable. Impressed.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear gold with a pretty platinum head that lasts. I could tell that I needed to let this one warm up because it came almost overly cold from the tap. Nose is crisp crackery malt, autumn leaves, light herbal hops, with a slightly sweet nutty chord running through it all. Taste is very true to the nose, with the nutty and herbal nuances filling in all the right places. Body is medium light, and the carb is active but not aggressive. While the bitterness is relatively low, the finish shines with herbal hops and rounded nuttiness. Fun beer, and another winner for Gilgamesh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Light golden color with a thin white head, no lacing. Smells like a pilsner - grassy, cereal grains, with an added hint of nuttiness. Light bodied, good carbonation. Well-balance pilsner taste - barley and slightly spice hops, with a sweet, nutty twist from the filberts (hazelnuts).
