3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My house on July 8, 2012. Bottle into pint glass. Two fingers of head. Honey pale color. Foamy white lacing. Below average-to-poor retention.
Smelled honey, corn, wheat, grass, bread and light lemon hops.
Tasted honey, corn and bread mostly. Also some light lemon hops that brings everything together.
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Refreshing, but abrupt finish.
Not a bad beer overall. A decent, refreshing pilsner. Great for the summer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Trade Joe’s. Funky banana-fruit smell, a finger’s worth of white foam on top, and a carbonated yellow-orange appearance. This was something like a hefe-pilsner crossbreed made up of wheat and fruit flavors. It was really filling and had the mouthfeel of soda. It had a distinctive flavor that was reminiscent of moist banana sodabread.

12oz bottle 6/23/12 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-48° in Footed Pilsner-Pours a clear golden with a one finger white head. Aroma of corn,malt, grains, and hay. Taste of the same with a bit of dryness on the back end. This light bodied brew is pretty basic and nothing to write home about.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from T Joes. smells old and grainy like pretty much every beer I bought from trader joes. Flavor is the same. disappointing but not exactly surprising if that makes sense. WTF trader joes. you might as well sell Budweiser. Its much better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear light gold with a one inch frothy head. Not a ton of lace. Aroma is mild honey and a touch of grass. Flavor is mostly dry with a moderately bittered finish. Medium to lgiht body with medium to high carbonation. Pretty clean. Not a ligher pils in terms of bitterness or body. Solid budget drinker on a hot day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled in a 6 pack. Not bad but what you would expect from a midrange pilsner. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a see-through yellowish honeycomb into pint. Smells and tastes of spent grain, wheaten bread, dispensed yeast and hops. Crisp and wonderfully light by mid-palate.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: pours straw yellow with thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is grassy with malt and a metallic note. Malt and grass dominate flavor with a rather harsh bitterness creeping in. Palate is full with malt on the tongue but quickly turns bitters. Overall, an ok pils with lots of flavor, unfortunately a bit harsh here and there, good for the price but not a go to beer.

A tasty, fulfilling non-nonsense brew from Trader Joes. A deep golden color. Good carbonation. Lots of biscut malts, good hop balance. Clean finish. Very decent stuff.
