3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Gold with white head. Aromas of biscuity malt, grassy hops, faint citrus, and something vaguely sour in the background. Flavor is biscuity malt with a fair amount of peppery spice and some nice grassy hops. Nice carbonation, full on the palate, this was just delightful.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a slightly hazy typically carbonated light orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The crisp and clean mouth feel was strongly hoppy & tingly at the start and mediumly tingly at the finish with a malt hop aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt and hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

On draft at the San Francisco airport. Poured very clear gold with a nice white head. Nose of sweet malts and floral hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor has nice hop bite and finish is nicely bitter. Very decent pilsener.

Bottle. This was a surprise for me. I am not sure what I expected but the beautiful color (sort of a gold with a hint of orange), big white head, and gentle hop and malt odors get you off to a good start. Easy going down, with no bad tastes at any point. Very easy to drink. This is a very good pilsner in my opinion.

Bottle. Pours a brilliant golden with a one finger mostly lasting white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of floral hops, light citrus, and pilsner malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a solid bitterness. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated 8/3/07. Bottle at Redlight Redlight. Courtesy boboski. Pure golden body with virtually no head or lacing. Aroma was primarily a grainy background with faint hops and very mild spices. Perhaps a tiny bit of sweet citrus fruitiness in there too. Flavor was on the mild side, but interesting nonetheless. There is no dominant element here, but everything just seems to meld together incredibly well. The fresh grains flow right into the mild hops and the pale malts, and vice versa. Body is a little watery, but there is a bit of creaminess on the palate that makes for a very nice finish. Just a very well rounded beer that is incredibly easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear as day, straw gold with a small white head. A little bit of grain, really mild hops, and sweet cinnamon are detected in the aroma. The taste is mildly bitter, a little sweet, hoppy, with some malts in there too. Really easy drinking beer, and very flavorful for a style I’m usually not big on. Just mildly bitter in the finish, but left a sweet cinnamon flavor on the palate. This is well done for this style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear orange-tinted body with a large frothy white head.
Pleasant grainy aroma, soapy grass, and cookie dough sweetness.
Not overly bitter but more malt oriented. Plenty of biscuit sweetness with just a small level of bitter twang at times. I could see this fitting nicely into a session.
