Pilsner glass. Fairly attractive given its a pilsner. Cloudy gold, lots of carbonation, some head. Notes of hay and not much else. Quite tasty, hay, hops and possible bread combine to create a pleasant mixture. The mixture comes alive in your mouth and foams up. A nice alternative to most pilsners.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT - picked up at Trader Joe’s in Manhattan, most likely. Pours crystal clear, yellow-gold, quite effervescent with a frothy white head. The aroma has some tangy cereal and biscuity pale malts. Light sweet flavor, somewhat metallic, with bitter and dirty hay, crispy cereal. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Fair bitter hay to finish, mild metallic tang, dry cereal, hints of biscuits. All in all a pretty fine pils.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a finger of head on a clear, straw colored body.
The aroma is grainy with honey and flowers.
The taste is okay. A mild sweet with a drying bitterness middle to end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s unbalanced but more than drinkable.

Tastes like a watered down pale ale, smells nice but all down hill from there.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber big white fluffy head. Smells of skunky soapy planty hops. Tastes watery spicy mostly of hops. Slighty acidic possibly from the immense amount of carb. slight wheat background. too hoppy to be czech style. I’d describe this as a pale pils.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear orangey-golden with a dense, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up sweet lemon zest and grassy notes over light bready malts.. clean and well-balanced. The flavor found crisp lemon, grass, and peppery notes over soft bread and lesser caramel malts.. refreshing finish.. well done. Lighter-bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. not a whole lot to it, but it was very well done.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Caramel and toast aromas. Crisp with sweet caramel, hay and toast upfront turning to bitter earth in the lasting finish.
