3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
THOUGHTS: The bottle was a couple months past date, but it didn’t seem to mater. Very intense. Fairly European. Hid the alcohol very well. Very crisp and easy to drink for something this big.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light to medium, golden, yellow with a large, off-white head that slowly diminished and kept a nice sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma was moderate, straw, cookie and pale malt; moderate to heavy floral and grassy hops; lighter perfumey hops; light honey and a hint of lemon. The initial flavor was moderately to rather sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was rather sweet and rather to heavily bitter with a fairly long duration. There was pale malt, slight honey, straw, floral and grassy hops and slightly metallic hops; The medium body was very crisp. It was slightly syrupy and and then dry with fizzy carbonation and a lightly metallic finish.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Earthy malt aroma. Grassy, leafy hops. Pale malt aromas with herbal notes. Very forest-like overall.
Ultra-clear straw yellow color. Huge champagne bubbles. Retention of this big, white head is great. BIg gobs of lace.
The flavor is earthy (ie. dirt) malt taste; grainy. Bitter, grassy Euro hops. A real bitter, herbal finish. Some medicinal, slightly astringent/sour qualities.
Creamy feel like juice, but fizzy and bubbly. Has a distinctive bite at the swallow. Makes it a nice sipper. Strong: a bitter "pils" to swallow.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lucent gold, thin white head, medium-full body, medium carbonation.
Aroma: fruity floral hops.
Taste: lots of crackery pale malt, lots of mild vinous floral nobel hops, and a little bit of yeast.
Pleasant and nicely balanced. Big but simple. More a pairing beer than a sessional.

Pours a bright yellow-gold with lively carbonation. Big aroma of pilsner malts and hops. Taste is malty sweet with a sharp bite in the middle. Finished with a mellow residual sweetness. Hides the alcohol very well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly grassy malty with big dry noble hop aroma, slightly medicinal... Sprucy/piney flavor, but not in an IPA style way... Good flavor, different for a pils, but in a creative way... A bit boozy, medium full bodied,

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.
