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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Just a faint aroma of hops, and pours a clear gold, with almost no head. The flavor is a quick burst of sweet, followed by a long bitter finish. Very thin palate, not horrible, but I can’t think of a time I’d grab this over an IPA or a standard lager.

Draft at Beer festival. I’m not a huge fan of pilsners or practically any other kind of lagers, but this one was pretty soild. Golden color, with a relatively small head. Nice and hoppy with a nice smooth flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a defining american pilsener. Excellent malt hit with hop aftertaste. Beautiful golden color with solid head and delightful lacing. Sweet hints and ’full deck of cards’ mouth feel. Like a soft southern woman who aims to please. Absolutely humbles pilsener urquell. Must try.
