3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Clean grainy malts, with grassy and earthy hops. Simple, well balanced, and very drinkable. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of light noble hops, a touch of dry malt, some grainy elements. Tastes of dry malt, some bitterness, some sage and grass elements on the finish. Enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
a bit better than the big easy blonde. Not much aroma here. Taste is a bit cleaner but not terribly hoppy which is too bad. Finishes fairly clean. Could make a decent lawnmower beer. Of course I don’t own a lawnmower.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 10/2/10
Aroma: A light and dull aroma of grains and corn, fairly typical of a boring pale lager
Appearance: The pour of this one is clear, golden in color, and with no head
Flavor: It has a malty sweetness up-front with a finish of hoppy bitterness and something quite off
Palate: It is fairly light of body, and feel that lasts on the tongue just doesn’t quite work for me
This one is not exciting at all, probably my least favorite thing that I tried at the Brewpub. It is rather dull and typical of the mediocre examples of the style, and it has a rather odd aftertaste. This just really isn’t very good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Hyde Park Brewery. Pours a clear golden yellow, thin white head remnants, but mostly still looking. Empty for the most part but what aromas exist are mostly grain. Holy sweetness batman. . Decent body at least, but this is just sweet and empty. Big abrasive and unrefined bitter finish. Ugh.

A Bohemian Pilsener that uses Czech hops.
A slightly sour aroma.
Not very impressive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a completely lucid macro yellow. Aroma is slightly sour and lemon. I do not think it is intended to be so but heck it works well enough. Taste is similar with light biscuit malt sweetness. Very light and quaffable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mild, sweet, herbal and grainy aroma. Clear golden body is topped by a low but lasting, fine bubbled, white head that recedes to cover with some lacing. Grainy malt flavour with fair to moderate bitterness. Light body with crisp carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.
