4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Pours straw yellow with a thin white head. Light doughy, spicy yeast, sweet pale grain, and a nice floral hoppiness. Taste is the same, with a very drying spiciness on the finish. A bit astringent, but clean and floral and sharp. Big carbonation, nice and fluffy.

On tap at the BikeBar. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Nice balance with corn, malt, and hoppy bitterness. Average body and mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, 10C. Very pale yellow gold with a modest white head that fades a fair bit. Aroma of lemon, grass, grain. Light bodied, quite high carbonation. Grainy sweetness is restrained and almost austere, bitterness quite high with grass, lemon and a little pepper. Doesn’t taste quite like a Czech beer, but tastes for a change like whoever made it actually likes pilsener. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from LifeSource. Light golden straw in color. Some grains up front, followed by a little bit of a malty backbone. A little bit of a grassy hop finish. A little graininess. A hit of a soapy quality, but otherwise pretty clean.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 From the tap this beer pours a beautiful golden color, great clarity, with a tall white head. Crisp hop nose, spicy and floral abundance. This was one of the better pilsners i’ve had in town, crisp on the palate, excellent compliment to most foods.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewery during Zwickelmania 2013. Served by the owner, Christian. Very nice fresh grassy aroma. Clear bright yellow. Sweet, grassy initial / little hop bites in mid, with some cereal and caramel / a bit of cloying sweetness in the finish. Good legs on the final bitterness. Great mouthfeel. A very good, fresh-tasting pils. Satisfying stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Produces up with what seems like a bad case of chill haze. A shrouded sunny medium gold with a frothy and loose white head of foam. Pineneedles and roughly bruised, bitter green herbs dominate the nose with underlying wafts of lychee, pear and lavender. On the palate it is assertively hopped but balanced by a wonderfully dry pilsner malt graininess and toastiness from that Carahell. Light in body with moderate carbonation that sees it move with haste across the tongue. Big bitter peak, raspy and herbaceous on the swallow leaving a lasting dryness of grain and hop. Long camphorous, nettle and pineneedle linger, quite spicy and raw. Very refreshing stuff. I loved this one. Drinks well even as it warms and showcases the wonderful Saaz hop with artistinal brilliance. A solid Pilsner! (47,3cL can, date indistinguishable on base, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on draft at the brewery. Looks great, crystal clear thin quickly dissipating head. The aroma is sweet malts, spicy sass hops. The flavor is sweet pilsner malts, spicy/floral hops, herbal, the sulfur character of the yeast is a bit strong for my palate. A solid pilsner.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Light golden with a thick white head. Nice grassy and spicy/floral hop aroma with some fresh bready malt. Well balanced flavor with considerable hops but smooth bitterness (much different in that regard than Upright’s pils earlier in the day). Spicy and grassy with a nice bready malt balance. Very clean and well fermented with nothing off detected at all. Both this and the helles were quite good. Not a total americanized hop-bomb pils, but enough to keep things interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours gold with a lasting head.
Nose shows lemon/dill sorachi-like notes, soft bready malt and banana. Quite nice.
Flavours include more bready notes, soft dill and spicy hops. Enjoyable stuff.
Carbonation could be higher.
