3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear straw gold body with a one finger frothy white head that left some nice lacing. The nose is bready and crackery maltiness with a light floral and noble hop note. The flavor is a little less bright and hoppy than I was hoping for. The hops and bitterness level is very low. Still a nice dry, crisp, and crackery malt base that helps though. Light bodied and dry with soft fizzy carbonation. OK overall, but not as bright and hoppy as I was looking for.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is not a true pilsner. The aroma is strongly hoppy but with a weird grapefruit note. The color is straw but a shade darker than continental pilsners; the head is thick and retains well. The taste is not grainy enough; the malts are too thick and heavy and the hops come through in a cloying manner. The beer could be an alright lager, but it is no Czech pilsner.

Golden in color it has a typical lager aroma. It has more of a bite with the flavor and a bit more complexity.
