2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Note: I had a cold while rating this so perception of aroma may be skewed or less sensitive than usual.)
Pours slightly hazy yellow gold with frothy white head that disappears quickly. Lots of pretty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy grain. Taste is surprisingly bitter. I usually expect a bit more sweetness in a Pilsner. More bitterness straight through the finish. Can’t really taste the hops; probably due to cold. Body is medium with lively carbonation. Overall ok, but really too bitter for a Pilsner.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I don’t know if I’d call this a pilsener but it is a nice American lager one way or the other. It pours a cloudy gold color w/ a scant white head that leaves behind little spots of lacing on the glass. The nose on this is fairly mild but the floral hops really pop once you taste it. This is light on the palate w/ gentle carbonation. It’s mild sweetness is contrasted by strong grassy and mineral bitterness in the finish. As it warms, the hops take on a more citrus character and the bitterness smooths out a bit. This kind of reminds me of a more flavorful version of Goose Island 312 wheat beer--a mild, hoppy brew w. a touch of sweetness. It works.
