3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle courtesy of LooseCannon. Thanks! Pours a clear golden color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is very bready with some grassy notes and a peppery finish. Taste is very bread again with lots of peppery spice notes, caramel and some apple and peach notes poking through. Very strong piney hops throughout. Alcohol adds a bit of a medicinal quality to this.

This is light gold, almost yellow in color. Aroma is of hops and orange and lemon peels. Taste is very hoppy and citrusy. I can pick up a lot of lemon peels and some orange. Has a nice and smooth finish. Another good one from Harpoon.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep gold with 3-finger white head. Nose is pale malt, hops, sour fruit. Tastes rich, a bit cloying at first, very malty, with peach, apricot, and hops. Tannic, not tart enough for this style, and a bit too cloying for me. Also gets very hot and astringent late.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice gold color with considerable white head and decent lacing. Smells refreshing, don’t recall the details. Flavor is a nice mild blend of light malt and hops with a bit of honey. Alcohol content is covered amazingly well. Good beer, enjoyed very much. Has a nice slight bitterness in the finish that I like to see in lager beers.

A golden pilsner with a thick frothy white head. In aroma, citrusy hops aroma with light lemon peels, and nice crisp malt and herbal notes. In mouth, crisp malt, loads of Saaz hops, a real pils on hormones. Medium bodied, alcohol warmth in finale.

a real ggod beer. A real good pilsner. Light in color with a nice hoppy aroma. Its got a subtle sweetness that overtakes the intial hops flavor. Finishes slightly dry. My second offering from the leviathon series and another winner.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Robust grain and yeast aroma. Clear golden color with a large white head. I wish I poured this on in a larger glass. Light sweetness is masked by some hops in the beginning with bitter hop and mild alcohol in the finish. Hearty lager.
