3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can, thanks to the owner of Bare Hands.. Mostly clear golden yellow color. Thin white head. Medium body. Smooth, crisp carbonation. More dry texture. Nice lemony citrus hop profile. Good biscuity, bready, lightly peppery malt. Moderate bitter taste, light helles-type sweetness. This is a damn good pilsener. I could crush the hell out of this 16oz can. So crisp and easy drinking. Awesome stuff, one of the best pilsners I’ve ever had.

16 oz can to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; an almost completely transparent gold with white lacing. Smells of dough and mild bitter hops. Tastes like it smells with a nice, snappy mouthfeel. A good pils.

Can from the noblest of squirrels. Pours a slightly hazy yellow/gold, with white head. Aroma of hay and grass. Taste follows suit. Palate is average, not too spritzy. Finishes slightly bitter and lingers longer than I would have expected for a pils. Easy drinking for sure, but this doesn’t blow me away by any means...not that that has to be the case for every beer. The flavors here just don’t pop for me.

Meh. Drinking this right now in the tap room. Weak with little flacor. No hopa or malt. Clean with aome bitter but disappointing.

Tap @ Half Acre. Pours a clear, golden appearance with a white head. Clean dry, herbal, light honey, a bit grainy aroma. Grassy, a bit sweet grainy, straw, clean flavor. Very easy to drink Pils.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can. Grabbed this for Game 4 as Binny’s didn’t have any Molson Canadian (hockey sacrelige!) and HABC hasn’t really disappointed me yet (well, besides Chocolate Camaro, but everyone gets one free mulligan). Anyhow, this one pours a pale straw color with a fluffy white head, awesome retention, decent lacing. Nose is what you’d expect in a Pils (old school hops and some malt). Mouth is light to medium bodied, some lemon, light malts, lots of hippy bitterness, clean mouth feel. I like this one better than most other craft-brewed.Pilsners I’ve had. Solid effort.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Darker gold with good, creamy, white head, light legs / Bright , hoppy nose of pine, citrus, dandelion / Medium body, creamy, dry with some chew & astringency, but excellent balance and bitter finish / Musty, dry flavors of toasted grain, straw, pine, grapefruit, lemon, dandelion, pine nut / Not sure what to make of this. On one hand, it is a superb, dry ipa, but, on the other, it is unlike any other pilsner that I have tried..

Can. Thanks Ken. Fluffy, effervescent yellow. Nice foamy head. Aroma is grainy and slightly sweet. Taste is subtle. It is extraordinarily light in body and in flavor. Some breadiness, some lemon curd, and just a very slight hint of floral bitterness in the finish. This one is an enigma, initially thinking there wasn’t much to it, but the layers keep quietly revealing themselves after each sip. Delicate in a word. This has to be really hard to brew.
