3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed on tap in a tulip glass. The beer pours a nearly totally translucent straw-colored yellow, with a moderate white head. The nose shows a grainy/bready pilsner malt character, along with a noticeable underlying note of earthy noble hops. The palate shows bready/crackery continental malt sweetness up front, followed by an assertive level of bitterness, and an earthy hop flavor. Carbonation and mouthfeel are pleasant and appropriate to style. The finish is moderately bitter, and quite dry. Overall, a nice example of the style from a brewery showing its range.

Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head with no lacing to speak of. Dusky, grainy cereal notes and biscuit tones. Light crisp grain malts a bit dank. Alright for a pils.

Tap @ Toronado. Pours a clear pale yellow with a small bubbly white head. Nose of cereal grain, cornmeal, and grassy hops. Pretty tasty for the style.

On tap at Stone. Clear gold, white head. Light malt, grass, and some citrus and malt. Very light and easy drinking, but pretty good flavor. I like my beers to be bigger, but this was fine.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy golden color. Chalk white head. Very grassy, huge hoppy nose. Massive grassy hop attack in the mouth. Full on hop assault and one of the hoppiest palates I’ve come across. A touch of diacetyl, that somehow adds to this beer! Bitterness is unfathomable to any regular drinker of yellow fizzy beer. IBU stands for I Beat U with hops sucker. This is a Bohemian Pils on ’roids. Marion Jones drinks this shit everyday I am sure!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow-orange hue, very thin white ring of foam. Nose is spices, pale malt, grass. Flavor is pale and toast malts with a big bitterness amped by the carbonation, grassy hop flavor and high bitterness, finishes dry. Light body, high carbonation, slick texture. A flavor packed Pilsner, just outside the session abv range, still quite drinkable and a nice variation on the style.
