Small head with a "light beer" color to it. I wasn't expecting this to be terribly great as I typically prefer a darker beer. However, I was plesenly surprised by the full-bodied flavor of this pilsener.

Bottle. This beer formed a small sized white head that was smooth with fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The body was transparent with fast rising carbonation and a yellow hue. The nose was malty, sweet and somewhat fruity. The flavor was sweet and bitter. The mouthfeel was tingly and this beer had fair lacing.

I tried this along with three other pilseners, and this is simply not a pilsener. Its way underhopped, and lacked that pilsener "bite". This is unfortunate, since the beer itself was not so bad - malty, almost fruity.

Started off with a pleasingly light hop aroma. Malts were thicker than expected - bready, mildly sweet. The finish was nice and crisp, peppered with hops. Overall, the flavors need kicked up - it's all just too mild.

Clear light yellow under a large white foamy head which clings to the glass forever. Aroma is a pleasent grassy/hay/earth character. Taste is light lemon grass and some German wheat characteristics. A nice representation of the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a rippling scandanavian blonde, head flashing white as a shark's tooth. modest aroma--as if coming from afar-- of honey dissoved in white wine, with a match-stick dry piney effect, plus perhaps daisys and butter cookies; nice, tho the aromatic saaz hops are understated. it's a lovely bite of refreshment, cookie malts and perfumy white grape hops are in splendid balance, tho, typical of the style, in very small measures. moderate carbonation and a gentle wobble from slight sweetness to slight bitterness. good for washing down a sandwich.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 Pleasant sweet grainy aroma. A bit of banana, maybe some ginger? Body is orange/yellow with an average head. Taste is sweet with a light bitter finish. Thought I got some ginger in the taste as well. Sweet grains with a touch of caramel and decent pilsener hops. Overall, flavor is very light, but there is nothing terribly wrong with it. Nice session ale, well rounded.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with almost no head. Initial impression is a oily mouthfeel, but not a terrible pleasant one. A buttery taste is left in my mouth that is rather pleasing. It has a nice balance in the flavor, its has a decent bite, but doesnt shoot the rest of the beer in the foot by doing so.

This bottled brew has a place on the label for the "Bottled During" date but it was not filled in. It poured a small head of white colored finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated dark yellow colored transparent body and a fair lace. The aroma mild and doughy. The mouthfeel is smooth with a mild tingle and the flavor is malty with a mild fruity apricot like finish.
