3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, at the brewpub
Hazy straw colour. Appetizing bready malt taste with a pungent, fruity hop character (thought I got some Simcoe, but apparently not). Crisp, grassy bitterness with a hint of lemon and some honeyed, biscuity pale malts. Sweetish finish. This is the PNW’s version of "approachable starter beer".

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brewery
Slightly murky yellow, pale in color. Sweet corn and rice nose, more like a Bud or Molson product. Light and wet, flavorless up front, then sour and lager-esque and dry on the back of the tongue. Finish is grainy and corny. Too sour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a very pale golden, somewhat cloudy, large white rocky head, web like lacing, with soft carbonation. Malty nose, somewhat buttery and sweet. Slightly floral as well, and quite sweet about that too. Somewhat thick mouthfeel is what I first notice, almost wheaty. Nice sweet maltiness, with a floral/spicy flair. Yeah, definitely a bit heavier than your normal pilsner, which I really like. Good body, somewhat thick mouthfeel. Finishes with a bit more hops, albeit very soft. Also malty. Nice! Probably one of the better local Pilseners I have had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. The cheerful locals at the bar next to me knocked this beer hard--said dude had had all kinds of problems since reviving it as a regular in the brewing rotation a few months ago. But this keg was delicious for sure. Crystal clear medium yellow with thin grayish head and decent wavy lace. Very little visible carb. Wet grass and leaves on the nose. Mild, softly carbed body. Big grass and hay notes really burst forth on the mid-palate. Fairly short-lived finish, but even that holds plenty of flavor. Dandy, fresh little pils.
