12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Janesville, WI, served a few minutes out of the fridge in a Coors Banquet glass. A loud fizz and the liquid very nearly gushes, filling the glass and then creeping up in the bottle faster than the foam settles in the glass above the very pale yellow-gold bubbly body...I’ve had this beer before a few times and never seen that happen, so I’m hoping there’s no infection problem....nose is fairly weak, grainy with a touch of honey and an odd bit of mint...on the tongue it’s quite sweet for a pils, without much carbonation, slightly syrupy/sticky, only the faintest trace of hops at the finish, a bit soapy. Well, I think this might be a bad bottle, because this has certainly been better before; then again this brewery isn’t incredibly consistent in my experience so I’m going to let the chips (and the beer) fall as they may and rate it for what it is. Hopefully I’ll get a better sample again at some point.

12oz can shared by Bvery. Clear golden pour. Smells like corn. Taste like metalic garbage. Not undrinkable but not good.

Poured a hazy golden amber. Initially had a foamy white head that dropped to just a film very quickly. The cloudy appearance took away from the look of a crystal clear pilsner. The aroma was yeasty and bready with some roasted malt sweetness. There was a decent amount of carbonation that gave a nice refreshing taste to the beer. The flavor was mostly sweet roasted malt with a bit of hops bite coming through towards the middle. The finish was more refreshing as the sweetness faded away and the mild hops crispness lingered.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison, WI. Clear gold pour with weaker foam. Nose is canned pear. As it warms, diacetyl comes through. Sweeter flavor with white grape juice, more canned pear. Good body, but the flavors are all wrong.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2016
16oz at Sidedoor. Filtered yellow tan body. Thin, foamy white head. Bready brewhouse aroma, odd hints of apricot. Easy drinking,, but not really true to style. The fruity off tones seriously detract. Imperfect lager. Borderline macro stuff. Numbers seem generous, I would not buy this beer again.

Atom (2156) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2015
12oz can pours a clear golden with a large off-white head. Aroma is simple and straightforward malted barley, grassy noble hops, and Czech pils yeast. Taste is lots of barley, light mineral, faint hops, corny sweetness, and yeast. Could easy be mistaken for any European Macro, no better no worse.

Aurelius (5070) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Stinks, in a way that only a Bohemian pils can. Stale, funky straw and diacetyl smell. Astroturf themed can, clear oak color, stiff head. Goes flat, stale graham flavor, low bittering, unceremonious drain pour. ABC Liquors, Betton.

PorterPounder (7333) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz can. Slightly sparkling medium golden pour, slight snow white head. Neutral aroma, not really picking up anything, perhaps some gumballs. Flavor has some honey sweetness, some graininess, a touch of light yeastiness, Smooth mouthfeel. Not great, but palatable.
