3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear golden pour with a thin and fizzy white head. Aroma is light and hoppy with a sweetness and a light floral touch. Some corn in it as well. Flavor is light and bitter with a slight touch of malts that offsets the dry hops. Light to medium finish with a small touch of sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A good pilsner. Hoppier than what you would expect for this style, but still crisp and refreshing. Pours a very nice golden color, and has a clean, sweet fruity aroma. An easy drinking, refreshing lager that serves as a pleasant alternative to macro brewed crap!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12oz Bottle. Pours a transparent coppery gold color with a healthy serving of ivory head. Clean, light aromas of dandelion flowers, clover leaves, riesling grapes, and a small fruity whiff of white peach. Light, clean, delicately herbal bouquet with a splash of light fruit characters. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Some light herbal hops greet the tongue, creating a fashionable floral character to suplement the solid malt base. This lends itself to a transition into the gentle fruit characters found in the aroma before finishing cleanly with a refreshingly gentle, hoppy smack.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden body, small white head, boring aroma. Hops are more bitter than flavorful; some honey from the malts, but no bready goodness. Not a good example of the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bit light for the style but with a lasting white head and an effervescent body. The aroma is clean, no diacetyl, grassy, but with no bready malt character that I was expecting. Body is med. light with a burst of CO2. The flavors are a nice mixture of spicy, earthy hops and the bready malts that were missing in the aroma were all there in the flavor. My nose is stuffy soo.
Finish is a bit more sweetish and malty than I expected. Not overly so, but the beer could use a touch more bittering.
Overall a very nice pils that I could easily drink a number of.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark golden body, white head; Malty sweet nose with a little freshness brought in by the hop; The body is a bit flat with a soft texture, to little sparkle and a harsh bitterness; The harsh parts evolves with the finish, soft texture, malty warm, citrus aromas, citric harsh. Good beer, but not my kind of pilsner.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Pailhead. Aroma has lots of soft pils malt with some yeast and flower/fruit esters in the background. Flavor much the same with nice bitter kick in the finish to cleanse the palate. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and body. Well done IMO, surprised at the overall.
