2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Bottle.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain / cracker, husks), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of DMS and metal.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Sadly the husks/metal/DMS notes bring this down; there are some nice things about it, but it’s a bit rough. Overall about average.

This beer pours a golden yellow with little to no head. The aroma is very typically skunky . The flavor is classic pilsner and I gotta say, I actually liiked this one. It was kinda dry with lots of good hoppy character! Cheers!

Pours a crisp, clean golden color into the pilsner glass. Hoppy, crisp aroma. A decent pils that doesn’t distinguish itself much from others. Clean, crisp taste...but not very exciting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light aroma of noble hop with some malt behind it. Golden color with a fluffy white head that sort of laced. Near medium in body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is noble hop over light malt. The bitter builds into the finish. It’s not exactly crisp. Fits the style, but not as sharp as Urquell. Definitely a decent pils.

A 1.7/5 is probably being generous. Close your eyes and this could be Budweiser with a slightly better almost ricey finish. Not buying this again.

BOTTLE: pours very clear golden with white head and effervescent bubbles rising. Aroma and appearance are nice for a pils. Nice body at finish as it rolls down the tongue. Short finish. Not bad for a pils.
