3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light malt aroma, some corn-like notes and a touch of grassiness. Clear golder-yellow and a bright white head. Nice, light flavor: crisp malt that has a sourness to it that is very nice and bready with a hint of grassiness in the finish. Light body, weird almost creamy mouthfeel with a dry-ish finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours to a clear golden body with a rocky white head that disapates to a thin film. Visible carbonation. The aroma is one of the first G.D. brews to be obvious and easy to smell. It has nice floral hops and is quite smooth atop the light malted corn body. The flavor is really nice. Perhaps one of the best in the style. Floral hops morph into a nice smooth, toasted grain. The palate is refreshing and velvety. Medium-light bodied. This is a great beer for the style.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Had this at the pub. Boy, well it was in a glass. Quite liquid as I can tell. It was also wet. As you can tell there isn’t much to say about this. Yes, it’s a beer. Yes, it tastes like a bad, bad pilsner. Let’s say there wasn’t anything completely horrible about this, but if someone just poured a glass of Coors Light I wouldn’t have known the difference.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample at pub. Corn aroma. Yellow body with white head. Bitter flavor and that kind gave me a bitter beer face.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small sample out of buddy’s glass. MGD aroma. Not much head or lace. Pale gold color. Doughy mouthfeel with hops evident at back of tongue. A really solid pils.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear pale yellow in color. Very light with a splotched white head. Aroma is skunky and raw potatoes, and some hop bouquet. Creamy, but light. Not enough hopping for pils distinction. More like a helles. Lemony and bready. Very bright feel on the palate. Like an amplified MGD.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold color with a grassy smell and some dark bread. The taste is full with subtle celery and black pepper spice. There is also some bread crust. This package comes together nicely. This is probably the best lager I ever had at a brewpub.

Clear golden straw color with an okay head. Clean yeasty aroma with a hint of hops. Nice bitterness, not much malt or hop flavor, yeast flavor is nice. Could use more body. A realy nice German Pils.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
No real defination to this beer, it looks almost like water. There was at least some taste, but not an abundence of it. Not a top beer.
