Pale straw colored beer, not a lot of tastes going on in this one. Simple, flat, a little boring. There are far better beers to try at Haymarket.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Haymarket. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Strong dough and bread malt aromas. A nice apple ester aroma, some biscuit, and plenty of grassy hops. A touch too bitter in terms of the flavor. Tons of grass and chalk. Good biscuit and bread sweetness, though. Some dough, apple, and a hint of yeast.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 5/28/14
Aroma: The aroma is light and clean, with some hop notes as well as some pilsener malts
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow-gold color with a thin white head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same, clean and light, with a bit of sweetness and bitterness
Palate: The body is light and clean, with an a solid mouthfeel, and a clean finish
I thought this was a decent example of the style. It isn’t a top notch pilsener, but it is clean enough to be pretty enjoyable.
