2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
My bottle had a lot of yeasty floaters, but I’ve had it awhile. I think the most attractive quality of this brew was the mouthfeel, very ticklish and carbonated, with a bitter hop kick in the back end that surprised. But pretty well balanced by the malt base. Decent drink!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Somewhat darker than a true pils -- uses pils and carapils malts but isn’t a pilsner. Still nice golden color. Easy pour produces a dense, lingering head and some fine lace. Some floaters and sediment. Aromas of straw, bread, herbs, malt and yeast. Taste is nicely peppered with noble hops (it’s hopped with 4 hops), balanced well with good full-bodied malt character. Good and bitter. Mouthfeel was chewy, coating the tongue for a lingering finish.

What’s üp with the über bit? This had a crazy head that did diminish slowly but büilt back everytime I poüred more. Thoüght that it wasn’t all to much more that an average, everyday pils üntil I had a few sips and the hops sünk in - tad thicker or even moreso than that average pils and sure as hell hopped to sürpass that not quite büt almost chewyness. Enjoyable, but a bit of a müddled affair.

On tap at Andy’s. Clear light amber color with a medium sized white head. Sweet, fruity aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and hops. Flavor starts off malty sweet with the above mention fruitiness but finishes with a nice hoppy bite. I really enjoyed this one.

Clear deep golden color with a fine white head.
Saaz hop aroma, lemon and melon.
Light body, smooth with a good malt flavor and a finish that leaves the palate clean, not sticky and sweet or bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a carbonated yellow with a average white head. Aroma is hoppy for a pils. Taste is clean, hoppy and hides the 7.5% extremely well. A great pils.

Pours a five-fingered white head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Cloudy light amber color. Hoppy/malty nose. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Starts malty/hoppy with some sweetness, finish is clean with some hoppiness. Nice pilsner. $1.45 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured a deep golden color with a fluffy thick head. Aroma of lemon a touch of malts and nice grainy malts. Flavor is sweet yet a little fruit (lemon and apple) also can be found. This is medium bodied and fairly crisp. I had no idea these were 7% alcohol. They were pretty easy to drink last night!

Tried at a local tasting from a rep. from the brewery in nearby Baltimore -- and liked it enough to bring home a six pack. Larg, frothy head with a nice clean golden color. Minimal aroma at first, but I feel that as the lager had some time to breath it gained a sweeter, yeasier aroma. Overall, decent but nothing to write home to mom about.
