3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shy head but nice golden color. Good character for a pilsener, good hops, almost fruity. Very well balanced between refreshness and aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden and limpid body topped with a nice and thick but quick-fading white head. Fresh hops and bread aroma. The flavor is lightly fruity and dominated by Saaz hops. Good bitter final. This is a nice Pilsner.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 Solid appearance for a pilsner, golden with a big white head, very foamy and nicely sticky. Aroma of baked cookies, pancakes and light fresh Saaz hops. This is pretty good, good malty character well-balanced by the meticulous hopping which bring a nice herbal saaz cripsness, the finish is a little watery, the bottom of the keg perhaps.. The body is top notch though, filling and velvety. / A few weeks later, I find it far less crisp with a more restrained Saaz character, surprisingly not so consistent? From 3.7 to 3.4/ Seems to vary between 3.1 and 4.1 between my visits. I’ll round this up to 3.6, but know that you can face something spectacular when ordering this.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale strawy colour, not much in the way of head. Had sort of a funky floral hoppy odour that was not altogether pleasing. Slight caramel notes. Didn't really taste off per se but I really didn't care for it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 Re-rate: Sazz hop nose and biscuity malt aroma. Clear golden coloured with nice white head that recedes to a good cover and thick ring. Hops nicely balance malty flavour with a nice crispness and a restrained but lasting bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Subdues carbonation allows appreciation of the subtleties of this offering at length. On tap at the brewpub. Original rating 6-4-9-4-18=4.1: Somewhat slight hop aroma. Beautiful clear golden caramel colour. Excellent carbonation with a nice clean white head. Very grainy and biscuity flavour with wonderful full-body. Saaz bitterness shines through in the finish. On tap at the brewpub.
