2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft in Honolulu. Something slighty un-pilsnery about this one, but still quite good. Great full-bodied fruity start gives way to a whiff of chemicals and a surprisingly smoky aftertaste (which was good!)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is a few leaves soaked in water. Taste is light twigs and a few bits of grass floating in hose water. Not offensive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(En fűt ŕ Gordon Biersch Mission Valley San Diego): Des instances fromagées et trčs vertes se bousculent dans un liquide assez protéiné et moelleux. Quelque dérange, une sorte de reflet mentholé gingembresque qui me distrait de ce que le reste essaie de faire.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[on tap at Gordon Biersch, DTW airport]
Fairly weak aroma of sweet pilsner malt and low zesty, Czech, noble hops. Less cracker and fermentation character compared to the Golden Export. Bight gold under lacy, white wisps. Flavour begins with balanced crackery malt and hops bitterness and then becomes pungent noble hops, and then the bitterness really holds on into the crisp finish. The bitterness together with the carbonic bite, are a little unpleasant. Light body, medium carbonation.

12oz at DTW after NCSS- really golden color with nice thick head. Too bad there’s no nose to the beer. So mediocre...

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I think 1.9 is a fair rating for this skunky beer. Flavor is ok but metallic and the aftertaste is slightly sour. Pour is weak with no head but the aroma is the worst....very skunky.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Atlanta International Airport - Concourse A restaurant - on tap. Medium golden pour, light snow white head with a generous coat of lacing. Aroma is pretty much neutral with a slight grainy hint to it. Crisp pilsner flavor with a hint of honey sweetness, a touch of grain, hints of biscuit - like malty sweetness. Crisp, clean mouthfeel.
