3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Aroma seems grassy/bready, but not light like so many. Med body. Flavor is bready, but so hoppy it suggests an Imperial Pils. As ever, hops save the day.

Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours clear yellow with an attractive white head and a marvelous floral aroma. There is a crisp clean pilsner malt flavor with excellent hopping. Though not a fan of Pilsners, I really like this one.

(Bottle) Pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma holds grassy, herbal and morning dew-ish hops alongside bready and hay-like malt. The flavour is light sweet to dry, near medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of grass, herbs, hay and bread. The mouthfeel is super clean and fairly soft with a medium carbonation. Clean, balanced and super yummy. Near medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"A rather untraditionally full bodied pilsner. Dry bready and a bit sweet, with some grassy hops and hay and a slight tartness to make things interesting. Not bad. "

Bottle. Yellow, low carbonation. Almost no head; very dry with lots of hops, and much more like something from the Czech Republic and Germany. Very good.

Hazy blonde, nice thick head, has a herbal, fruity, sweet, richly malty, only subtle herbal hops, just fat malt. More a helles, but a good one. Bit yeasty, too, so I guess more of an U Bier.
