Bottle @ GT’s house. Clear golden pour with a white head. Aroma is bready malt, dough, and apple esters. Lightly fruity, yeasty, and maybe a touch soapy. Flavor is too bitter for my tastes. Otherwise, good bread, biscuit, and dough. Fruit esters, some yeast, and a bit of orange peel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL thanks to WillFunForBeer. Pours a sparkling clear golden, thicker white lacing. Nose takes its sweet time to open up. At first it’s soapy, loads of orange perfume. Finally it opens up to beautiful pale malt grist, oatmeal, fresh oranges. Taste is exceptionally biscuit malt, flashes of DMS from the pilsner malt, nice perfumey orange. Palate is rich, thick biscuit. Really solid Pils here- impressive.

Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice grassy hop note with some crisp yeast and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has sweet grains and a bit of biscuit that is cut by grassy hops and is quite crisp.

Pours bright gold into a stein. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Bready caramel aromas. Soft and well-balanced with cracker and caramel upfront turning dry in the mildly hoppy earth and hay finish.
