3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at GABF 2013. Multiple samples. Nose is strongly hoppy and moderately malty; lemon spice, balm, light pepper, flowers, etc., with a baked cracker and bread crust notes to the toasty Pilsner malt. Some tropical fruit and lemon garlic notes and a faint butter resemblance that gives it a buttered biscuit and tropical ester quality. Highly bitter, medium sweetness, washing of acid across the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a very clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma has tons of fresh pilsner malt with light florals and lemon. The flavor is hop spice and very bitter. More big pilsner malt and super hoppy. A little citrus and pine to go along with the earthy spice. Kind of tastes like a German American hybrid pils. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at The Market on Washington. Labeled Green Flash Pilsner. I assumed this was going to be a strongly hoppy and dry pilsner. I was wrong. While not awful, this one doesn’t have a great hop potency like Sam Adams Nobel Pils, for instance. The aroma is mildly bitter with notes of corn and crackers. There is decent generic beer flavor with hints at cereal and corn. It’s not really bad. I wouldn’t call it great, either.
