3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was white and stuck around for a while. Aroma was of molasses and subdued toffee with some noble hops in the background. There was a slight metallic note that detracted a bit. Fairly effervescent. Caramel, molasses, and husky grain flavors. Finished with mild hop bitterness that lingered.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12-oz. Wow, what a shockingly unsuccessful effort. Pours a reddish golden amber with a thin white dab of foam that falls to spotty suds. Endless fast-rising bubbles. Huge boiled vegetable and wet cardboard nose. Watery body, hyper-aggressive carb, messy vegetal and cardboard mid-palate followed up by a rather nice splash of peppery and slightly resinous hops. Nothing about this is pleasant, but I’d love to have tried what they had in mind with these aggressive west coast hops in a bohemian.

Medium to thin bodied, simple biscuit malt character with muted hop flavor and minimal bitterness. Very refreshing lawnmower beer - keep it cold.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma is lightly sweet and grainy, comprised primarily of lightly bready, crackery malts, combined with a small amount of herbal, spicy, grassy hop and touches of lemon. Clear light-medium golden color, bubbly and with a fine, lasting head. Flavor profile is clean and well-balanced, with more pale malty flavor present throughout, but contributing mostly grainy, bready notes and less in the way of sweetness, while the hops make themselves known fairly late with a short burst of spicy bitterness and herbal, leafy character. Finishes dry and refreshing. Mouthfeel is effervescent and thin, body is light-medium. The only real issue I have with this one is a noticeable, lingering chemical-like acidity and harshness, possibly from an overabundance of alcohol. Otherwise, this is a well-done Pils.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep golden color with thin fizzy head. Aroma of grass, sweet malt, sweet dough. Taste is of grassy hops, sweet malt, some alcohol, sweet doughy flavor and a note of honey. This is highly carbonated and pretty tasty but the alcohol presence is a bit too much for yhe style. Also, the bitterness is a bit too much.
