4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the better pilsners I’ve had recently. Aroma is spot on, noble hops are prevalent. Bitterness is not overwhelming and balances the malt well. Flavor is outstanding. Reminds me of being in Germany.

Draft at Holy City. Clear golden color with bubbly white head. Pale pils malt aroma with piney and grassy hops. Clean, crisp pale malt and piney hops throughout the flavor with a quick dry ending. Nice drinker on a hot day.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Charleston Beer Works, Charleston. Clean, bright, effervescent golden pour. Soft nose of understated hops, some grain, maybe even a touch of lemon. Buoyant mouthfeel, very lively on the palate. Taste is just average, though, with not enough of the grassy, peppery qualities I savor in the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint at Closed for Business. Ok aroma, sweet. Little caramel, corny. Clean golden orange color, ok head and lace. Sweet flavor. Light body, thin watery mouthfeel, sweet crisp finish. It’s fine for what it is, not gonna wow you, not gonna offend. Fresh local pils.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The fact I just rated a pilsner a 4 should say it all. Not a German beer fan, by and large, but if I were sitting in a pils-only bar this would be my current choice. Crisp, clean, and more hops than I would expect. Refreshing in a balanced way. Could be the quintessential Charleston beer. Had it on tap at the source.
