3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a bright clear yellow with a small tight white head. The aroma was fruity sweet and boozy with a touch of floralness in the back. Taste is of spicey hops up front lending in to a very bready, and muted yeast flavoring with a touch of grassiness and sweetness in the finish. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, slightly oily and somewhat dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The first batch I had of this I think had some DMS issues but they appear to have cleaned it up with the latest batch. Intense grassy aroma with hints of hard cheese. Flavor is solidly hoppy with the high ABV fairly well integrated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudier gold. Taste is very sweet for a Pilsner. Almost more of a saison or something or even a bock. Well done, i just wish they didnít call it pilsner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle by mdlovullo. Light clear golden yellow color with a light haze. Malty and sweet and not dead on for a pils but pretty tasty. Balanced pine and citrus with sweet caramel malt and a slight alcohol burn.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 A: Golden yellow body. Thin cap with moderate lacing.
S: Bright floral hops dominate. Slightly grainy. Faint bready malts.
T: Disappointing after the promising nose. The floral hops were overwhelmed by the bready malts which rapidly escalated in prominence.
M: Slightly chewy. Nicely carbonated. Clean finish.
O: The bready characteristics impaired my overall enjoyment. Perhaps going for 9% was a bit too ambitious on the part of the brewers. (review from 2009)

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold with good, creamy white head / Big nose of honey, grain, and orange / Medium to full body, somewhat sweet and syrupy, with big malts and good, dry, albeit hot finish / Flavors of grain, grass, and clover honey / A little too big and syrupy, without enough fruit to support the malt and alcohol.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow with a poufy white head. Lively aroma of honeysuckle, citrus, and an odd bit of pineapple. Taste is the same, with sweet lemon-tea and a fading slightly medicinal edge. Very nice and well "dialed up". $2.5/12oz
