3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Churchkey - Washington, DC. I had this side by side with the 10 and was amazed at how different they were. The 10 so enamoring, with this being a little more lifeless, with a harsh, almost sour, but more like twangy harsh minerals to it. Not as well defined, a little more muddy and wandering. Less satisfying to palate in the finish. The slight more alcohol isn’t met by a better body for balance. I almost want to say that this keg is a little past peak.

Bottled. Ideal appearance - light amber color with a white stable foam (which will stay with you ’till the end). Rich of malts, hops and some bread aroma. Very rich texture, a lot of hops in the body and in the finish, which is fine.

On tap at Churchkey. Mild hops notes in the nose, subtle and floral with a little bit of sulfur. Hazy golden amber with pillowy white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with big malt notes and hop bitterness. Nice beany notes with carbonic bit and lagering hop floral notes. Dry bitter finish and lingering bitter after. Tasty.

Thanks to Ryan for sharing! Hazed light orange pour with a white head. Big bready malt aroma. Biscuit, dough, and honey. Floral hops, some cracker, apple, and yeast. Really great malt flavor. Tons of bread, biscuit, and sweet dough. A touch of honey, some yeast, floral hops, and a crisp finish. Very subtle bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1L PET "Growler" thanks to Mowbeer! Pours a full haze golden with weaker foam. Nose is pineapple, fruit juice, fresh grass. Taste is more in the pilsner realm than the Urquell Netfiltrovany: soapy Czech hops, snappy cracker grist, oatmeal. Crisp and aggressive. Lemon peel, white pepper, sourdough biscuit. Grassy hop palate with a long finish. Solid. This one was unanimously liked by the tasting group.
