Bottle. Poured a clear straw color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden pour with a tall white head. Nice biscuit malt aroma, sweet bread, and yeast. However, there are some strong grass notes, a weird grainy quality, and some apple. Flavor is on the sweet side with a lot of grain and biscuit notes. Moderate apple, heavy grass, and a bit of yeast. Slight bitterness on the finish.

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.

12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s Glen Allen, VA. Pours a clear vibrant golden color with a thin off-white head. Decent head retention. Grassy aroma with a faint caramel malt finish. The taste is grassy hops, some mint, toasted malts and a bit of corniness. Thin-medium bodied. Decent.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Deep golden and still, with a standard head. The aroma is a bit starchy and seemingly corn-laden. But this drinks with a decent hoppy sting on top of a firm, malty base. (#5432, 2/7/2014)
