3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma is hay-like, grassy, with slight banana yeast notes. Mildly sweet. Transparent blonde with frothy white head. Very buttery middle. Almost milky in a way. Small Saaz hop kick in the rear. Slight bitterness to start as well. Not too bad.

Good for a pilsner - which isn’t my favorite style. Very drinkable. I’ve had 2 of their beers now and they seem to make some good, quality stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2004 bottle served in a lager glass at about 45 degrees. Pale gold color, small bubbles rising, with a small white head. Very clear. White grapes in the nose, with plenty of bitter, rusty smelling hops. Minerals and wet moss, with a light amount of pils malt in the background. Flavor is crisp right away, with a decent amount of yeastiness, light notes of honey, green pears and some faint citrus. Medium body, finish is quite crisp, though has some muddled sweet/sour notes; slight traces of syrupy alcohol mixed with malt residue. Strange, but the beer is still quite refreshing.

not bad.. summery, straw, hay earthy nose.. clear crisp with a tight white head. Good lacing, nice hops but a little lacking in intesnsity for my palate. Not bad.

Golden straw color with impressive lacing - not your typical pilsner aroma, quite malty in fact - same for the flavor - quite sweet and chewy for a pils, and it doesn’t finish clean like one either - there is a light, flowery hop presence that compliments the light, fruity sweetness - there is nothing really special happening here - just a solid, drinkable beer - run of the mill, but worth a try.

Golden color with a creamy, off white head and light lacing on the glass. Strawy, grassy, hop aroma. Sweet malts, dominate, light toasted dough with lightly bitter hops in the end. Dry, straw finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden orange coloured body with a thin white head that fades very quickly. Aroma of lemons, Northwest hops, astringent alcohol and some malt. Light-bodied; Assertive bitter hoppiness with a mild maltiness and a very strong finish. Aftertaste shows lemon and alcohol with little else. Overall, a nice beer for the style-very potent and strong. Nice to try out here in Virginia! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased at Norms in Vienna, Virginia on 09-August-2004.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy amber golden with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma is lightly malty, grainy and floral. Taste is very malty sweet with notes of grain, grassiness and some saaz. Couldn’t detect that much bitterness, which would have been nice. Mouthfeel is round, very full bodied. Overall, a solid brew but is too sweet and can use more character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden color with a nice foamy white head. Flowery hops as well as some lightly toasty malts in the aroma. Very light malty sweetness that quickly turns to spicy saaz hop bitterness, a little grassyness in the finish. Not too shabby.
