3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2004 Very little in the way of aromatics, some very slight hops/malt. Somewhat typical appearance as well, clear pale golden color with less effervescence than I may have expected. Flavor profile has some light maltiness, but mostly it has hops! Spicy hops, tastes like there could be Saaz and maybe one or two other kinds. Finish is also spicy and hoppy, not too dry, though, a bit of malt wends its way there as well. I’d take this Pils over a lot of the ones I’ve tried from different parts of Europe, but it’s not really spectacular or anything. I do like the hop character, though, it’s refreshing. Pretty good for these summer months.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 Clear golden color with a decent white foamy head that doesn't seem to last very long, light grassy and flowery aroma, balanced malt and hop flavors, light to medium body with a crisp mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, all in all a pretty good pils.

not very assertive in aroma as a pilsner should, but still a pleasant beer.

very similar to the summertime i think, but a little less german style flavor-good none the less

Straw color, with a fairly thin head. A cross between a german, czech, and american pilsner. Not sharp hopped enough for a german pils, to thick for an american pils, and the malt not there for a czech pils. Not a bad beer, just a little to muddled.
