2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: dry and hoppy, more like an IPA than a pilsner; Appearance: light straw with frothy head; some lacing; Taste: dry and bitter but still disappointingly pilsner-like, which I suppose is not the beer’s fault; Palate: very drinkable, light body with a short, slightly bitter finish; Overall: a decent pilsner but I can’t get past the style.

12oz bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer. Bright yelow, good head. Flowery resin aroma. Corn biscuit resin aroma. Sharp with perfumey biscuit aftertaste. Good example of style.

Tastes a little better than Miller lite. Just don't like the style now that I'm into craft beer. Maybe a good lawnmower beer when really thirsty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an ultra clear straw color. About one finger white head. Some retention and some lacing. It’s well carbonated.
Aroma is lagerish. Mild hop aroma. Smells like toasted rice for thec grain. Biscuity and bready along with the rice.
Taste is a little more hoppy than the nose. It’s a grassy and floral hops flavor. There’s some grapefruit in there. It’s also crackery. It’s more bitter than you would expect. It’s also chalky. Weird.
Mouthfeel is pretty light. Despite the light body, it covers the alcohol quite well. Only slightly dry. It’s crisp and clean. It’s pretty drinkable.
Overall, I have mixed feelings about this. I want to like it, because I really like pilsners, but there’s something missing. The more I drink the more I like it. It’s unfortunate that I obtained this by trade, because I’d like to drink at least one more. I’d probably recommend this. It’s decent enough.

On tap at Neurolux. A bit disappointing, and not very "pilsnerish". I was missing the crisp hops bite on the tap. This came across more lagerish, is both aroma and taste, more like a Dortmunder. I’d need to resample under better conditions (i.e. not at a concert)
