2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Draft House at 6.2%. Slightly hazy yellow, very lightly sparkling, small foamy white head, decent lacing. Aroma is cardboard and lemony passionfruit. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is thin papery malts, a bit pungent, some caramel, bubblegum, crisp finish. It’s OK at best. There are lagers I’d prefer.

Not my favorite style, so it did not get a strong rating from me. Typical pilsner, fits.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
As it is being drunk from the bottle, the appearance gets a 3 as a sort of n/a. Upon opening the bottle to a rather nice aroma that is very balanced between bitter and sweet, there is a slight floral insinuation. This is continued in the first impression on the tongue, and with a certain sweetness yielding to a very malty, almost caramel note that quickly becomes more akin to coffee before quickly fading into an almost (but not quite) skunky finish. Pils gets a 2 for the palate as it is too heavy, and way too sticky, to qualify as a decent lager. However, removed from the restraint of labels, it is all in all a decent beer of whatever variety.

Great brewery, but not my style. Golden pour with thin white head. Aroma is a little bit of funk - I can never put my nose on middle-European hop varieties. Somewhat malty, which saves it for me. Very clean finish which is also nice.

On tap at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Very very nicely done here. Light and crisp, a little bit of spice, a little bit of hop character but well-balanced throughout. Always nice to enjoy a well-crafted pilsner.
