3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer taps me on the shouder for being a authentic pils. Aroma is not very impressive, but the style usually doesn’t usually do that. Looks pretty good in the glass, high carbonation. Smooth with a good touch of hops, but it is a little lower on the bitterness. Overall it is done very well, I just think they toned down on the hops to make it more appealing to the general public.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Deep gold color with a frothy white head.
Aroma: Light malt and floral notes.
Flavor: Crisp and clean but a little heavy with the malt. Good dose of malt sweetness paired with grassy, spicy hops.
Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short finish.
Overall: I think this one is a bit underrated. This is one of the more solid examples of a pilsner I’ve had lately.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught in Washington DC location: This one pours a clear golden color. There was a big white head on it that left a lot of lacing. The aroma is decent, but milder. It is earthy, with some malts and a hint of hops. The taste is good also. A touch malty and earthy, but needs more hops.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at San Francisco Airport. Dark gold with a large foamy head. Not much of an aroma, just a touch metallic. A dry palate, but a bit thin. Grainy malt flavour with just enough hop to make it interesting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank from the bottle...not much of an aroma...light, clear golden color, very simple, hoppy taste, with a hint of sweet...not much to matter. Light and refreshing without having to commit. No flavors in particular come to mind. It was hot out, so it was refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the San Francisco Airport location: Golden pour with good clarity adn a dense off white head that sticks around. Sweet pilsner aroma- some vegetal malt character, mild flowery saaz notes- clean. Rounded flavor with a crisp light palate. Firm malt base is reminiscent of sweet potato- evident herbal saaz/ peppery hallertau bitterness balances the pils base. ot far off from Pilsner Urquell. Solid, and a bit underrated.

It was not bad or offensive, but there was nothing that I really liked about it.Typical pilsener flavors/aromas.
