3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve little experience with Pilseners, and this is called a lager, so I’m confused. Nevertheless, it has the head and body of a macro lager, but the similarities end there. The aroma is dusty with some mild citrus and honey. The hops really pop in the mouth and make this memorable, though I do wonder whether our American friends are determined to overwhelm every last style of beer with their extreme hop wave. I also wonder whether I’d mind.

A: Beautiful gold color with a light white froth. Bubbles everywhere.
N: peppercorn hops, pine, earth, pilsener malt, corn husk and grass.
T: Light malt sweetness and a pleasant hop bitterness. Some citrus/white grape. Assertive.
M: Light and yet coating. Well carbonated.
O: Quality pils that doesn’t hit the highs of Heater Allen, but which is worth a buy at any point.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
473 ml can. Chill hazed lager yellow, decent foamy white head slowly settles and mostly fades. Sweet malt leafy hop aroma. Bready sweet pils malt, herbal earthy hop taste, some citrus and spice. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, adequately hopped. Solid from the start to the lightly bitter finish, a mighty fine pilsener. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
