3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Notes from GABF. Can. Clear gold with a short white head. Saint lemon-pepper noble hops, mineral water / calcium, malt is faintly husky, corn-like, quiet but noticeable must / concrete off-notes. Medium-light bodied, light to moderate sweetness, chewy sugars are enjoyable, hops are overly bitter for balance, texture is lightly starchy. Finishes as cracked pepper, lemon, herbs, faint toasted grain, though not very complex, and there’s some coarseness to the carbonation. Still it’s a decent quaffer, slightly above average for American-made lager.

Can. Golden beer with a light head and a bubbly body. The aroma is dry with a hint of fruitiness, and the flavour is very dry and hopped with some mellow yeastiness. Overall a nice well hopped Pilsner style beer.

16 oz can from bhensonb. Pours clear golden with a thick white head and a light floral aroma. There is a bitter light malt flavor, heavy on the rye, and a dry finish. A refreshing drink with an unusually bitter touch for a pilsener.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz. can. It pours a nice clear rich golden color with a disappearing fizzy off white head. The aroma is a bit underwhelming with some malt and light corn sweetness. Hints of noble hops, but I was hoping for more of a bouquet. The flavor is better with strong toasted and lightly sweet malt, very spicy, earthy/floral hops and a dense, malty body. It finishes very bitter for the style, but not overbearing. The oily mouthfeel from the rye complements the strong hop flavor. Actually quite enjoyable in the end.
