4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good starting head, but it dies too quickly and leaves little lace on the glass. The color is pale gold with no cloudiness at all.
Malted grain aroma with a mild floral hop nose. Attractive with no raw grain smells.
Peppery initial taste. This changes to a mellowed pale malt flavor. But the swallow reverts to the pepper from the hop. Relatively complex with a full mouthfeel and ample carbonation. Classic pils flavors that I think could compete against more famous versions.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a hazy straw yellow colored body with a one finger white bubbly head. The head lasts about a good thirty seconds, rapidly rising bubbles are seen rising.
The smell had the Czech Saaz (bitter and pounding) hops up front (reminding me a bit like Sam Adam’s Noble Pils). Nothing else really comes out.
The taste was a bit bready and eventually the malts and hops kick start a full flavored peppery bready taste wonderfully combined.
The palate sat about a light to medium, slightly bitter with a decent amount of carbonation coming out on the tongue.
Overall, this is a solid summer beer well worthy of having again if I lived in its distro.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at "Remeke/Biggs" in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one pours a golden brew with a rapidly fading white head of foan and a grainy aroma. Tastewise, this is a fine beer for session use with a pleasing taste but, hey, this really is just another lawnmower beer... but a good one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a clear golden yellow color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades slowly down to a thin layer leaving behind some nice lacing in the process.
S - Aroma is a mix of lemon and wheat. Some light citrus hop and a touch of sweet malt also mixed in as well.
T - Starts off with some light lemon flavor with a touch of sourness and a bit of wheat flavor. There is just a touch of citrus hop and sweet fruit as well. Through the middle, some bitterness and some bready malt flavor comes through. The finish is a mix of bready malt flavor and a touch of bitterness and lemon flavor that lingers.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate lively carbonation. Feels really crisp and smooth and only a touch watery. The finish is nice and fairly clean.
D - Very drinkable. Super smooth and really refreshing. The flavors really mix and meld together nicely. It could use a touch more of a kick in the flavor, but overall what is there is solid.

Pilsner isn’t always my first choice but I wanted to try this seasonal beer from Harpoon. It was as advertised: clean and crisp. It was a little more hoppy than I expected but it was quite nice on a hot and humid summer night.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a just clear golden amber with a medium to large white head. Sweet grain on the nose, a touch of either sweet fruit or corn. Medium bodied, sweet, more of that oxidized fruit that showed on the nose, turning into a bit of paper and grain. Grainy, dries out a touch as it moves to a long bitter finish, dusty and featuring a light quinine note.
