2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Crown, pale yellow in glass. Limited head, especially for style. No keeping a matchstick upright in this brew. Nose is dough, McDonald’s cookies and straw. Taste is bright and dry. Lemon notes shine. Hints of dough. Mild harshness on finish. Well executed, but not sure if I’d return to this anytime soon.

Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a nice pale yellow body yielding a decent one finger white foamy head that appeared and lasted for thirty seconds before slowly dieing into the body.
The smell had the hops in front with faint lemon in the background.
The taste was exactly the same.
On the palate, it sat at about a light, crisp and some typical slight (Czech Pilsener) harshness on the tongue (though I expected it, it wasn’t necessarily enticing).
Overall, uh . . . just another Czech Pilsener if you ask me, probably won’t entertain this one again, better stuff by Lagunitas out there.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma starts out with something that vaguely resembled banana and spice, but develops into a lighter lemon-esque note with some solvent-like qualities, some biscuit tones, and a light floral or grassy aroma. Overall, the aromas are fairly suppressed. It pours a clear, straw-pale color with w fluffy white head that reduces to just a ring around the edge of the glass; leaving a very light lace. The taste is a medium level of sweet with a light - medium light bitterness that shows up at the finish. There’s a light, but fizzy carbonation to this thin, effervescent pilsner. It’s medium-light body is primarily biscuit-y with a grassy roughness to it. It’s also a bit reminiscent of a citrus muffin with some light baking spices. It finishes dry, and crisp with a mild, spicy hop bite. Very light citrus and grass aftertaste that fades quick.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Pours a clear golden yellow hue with a 1 finger eggshell head.
S- Light grainy malts, sweet light fruits.
T- Bready, light fruits, slightly nutty leading into a small wave of light hops.
M- Thin to medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
D- Definitely an easy drinker. Nothing special here but a good, sessionable pilsner.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear straw gold with a thin foamy cap. Nose is creamy and cerealish with a mix of over biscuity lager yeast and grass clippings. The taste has some lager yeast doughiness, pale cereal tones, and corn. Only a light grassy kiss of hops, but not enough to forgive the corn tone.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a transparent gold with fluffy eggshell head. Smells of dough and mild hops. Tastes like it smells, but more robust, with more of a hop presence. Pleasant on the palate with a touch of pilsner snappiness. Enjoyable.
