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.

Generic brewpub pils, infcat a sub par one at that, the blandometer was rising way past amber on this one!

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 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. clean, firm malt throughout, a hallmark of these brewers. very light filbert nuttiness in the nose allows the subtle noble-like hops (dried leaves) to present themselves. clean, snappy, fresh, lightly nutty with firm malt structure and frothy carbonation. well-made as always with gilgamesh.

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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried this on a lark. Tasted really good. Light and crisp but with that added heaviness from the nuts that were added.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft served in a pilsner glass at Venti’s Taphouse, S.Salem.
Appearance? Golden yellow with a nice sized pure white head.
Nice lager aromas..bready, nutty.
Good fresh taste..grassy, cereal, small hopping and some nuttiness that finishes off the mouthfeel well
Good and smooth on the palate..no problem at all drinking this.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Poured pale yellow with thin fast dissipating head. Aroma is hay and filberts, lots of filberts. Pilsnerish taste, with a lot of nuttiness. Pleasant, but mouthfeel is marred by greasiness. Barman told me that is likely from the nuts. Balance finish, but again with the greasiness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at 16 Tons. Hazy yellow, milky looking beer thst is one of the ugliest I’ve ever seen. Hazelnuts very apparent in both nose and mouth, with a little biscuit thrown in. This is no Rogue Hazelnut Brown, that’s for sure.
