2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a drinkable pils but doesn’t have the depth or character as a really good example of the style does. The beer pours a very clear light straw color with a very small white head. There isn’t a whole lot of lacing around the glass. The nose features some crisp hops and hay. The body is a little too light, but as I mentioned, it is palatable. The flavors have some spicy and crisp hops, but not enough of a malt backbone to provide balance and depth. This would make for a good beer to pound one after another, but not one that is a great example of the pilsener style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yes, a little sharper than that regular labatts. Even has that old country slight cabbage aroma in there when poured. As the session continues it becomes more and more like those real pils from europe. Tho not quite as over the top as some with bitterness, it is a decent example of the style. Very good amount of co2 keeps the session lively. As good if not better than most american wannah beez. Tolerable for a lager lover. Goes down fairly easy. Medium length bitter pilz finish.
