2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a clear light golden with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma is mostly earthy Saaz hops with a touch of pale malty grain. Body starts faintly sweet and smooth with a light earthy hoppy balance and fizzy carbonation. An ok pils, but not really my favorite style.

On tap at the Great Dane Brew Pub (Downtown Madison Location). Poured a lighter and clear yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grassiness and some spices. Tastes, as was the body, thin and on the watery side.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale gold, very little head and no lacing. Dry, crisp aroma with some fruity/floral hop notes. Flavor is a clean, crisp, bitter-hop affair with a bit of grassy-sour and fruity tones.Medium-light body with surprisingly lively, tingly palate considering how little head it produced. A good, clean no-frills pilsner that achieves its objective.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Tap) Pours a clear golden color with a decent white head. Typical German pilsner taste. Mild hops and malts, with a dry palate. Slight metallic aftertaste as well. Not too bad though.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the Great Dane, Madison. Poured clear, bright light golden with a splotchy cap of white head. Nose was of sweet fruits and corn, with some wet hay and more veggies... blech. Sweet pils malts and sour banana at the flavor core.. alcohol should not have been present at the back end of this lighter brew. Highly-carbonated with sharp alcohol notes and ugly veggies. I hope this was just a bad batch.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-tap at the brewpub: A lighter medium shade of hay. Clear bodied. Frothy white foam of medium size dawns the top well and lasts for good length. Laces the glass in all kinds of spotty sheeting.
Aroma is well spiced with that certain German hopped spice, some partial dried floralness slimmed with grass and bready yeast.
Taste doesn’t disappoint; solid, crisp, broad flavors of dried bread, zippy German hop spice of dry grasses and herbs, yet stays thirsty and wet with a tender backing of doughy bread malt. Lasting, tender finish with some of the spicy hops.
Firm, medium body for a Pilsner. Very well done. Crisp, eager, with a fun balance of hoppy spice, bready malt; dryness and quick fullness. The dryness is immaculately placed along a very foregiving wet play of slick smoothness. A solid Pils. Sessionable by the growler and then some.

Medium copper/amber color. Clear. White creamy head. Germal bitter hops with a fresh grass taste and some sweet doughy malt. Light perfume in aroma. Nice pilsener.
