4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Have not tried it in bottle, but tap product had a soft malty flavor with nice hoppiness, just the right bite and a hint of spice. A bit light for my personal preference, as I am a big dark beer drinker, but quite good & refreshing nontheless.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorite pilsners, I love the hop nose in this beer and I love getting this beer on draught from the brewery. Not sure if its true or not but I heard the brewery stopped bottling this one and it is only offered on tap.

Hoppy, sweet aroma. Light yellow with small head. Watery with nice carbonation. Crisp, refreshing, hoppy, sweet. A very good pils.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color with almost no head. Very pronounced herbal, grassy hop aromas are delightful. Just enough malt and body to make it interesting and light enough to be a first-rate thirst quencher. Crisp and dry on the palate, with the hop components clearly dominating, but not overwhelming. A first rate pilsner.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2004 April 04: Sample at the brewpub. Clear gold, lasting head, nice lacing. Faint lemony aroma, doesn’t bloom much when warmer. Very smooth, little bite, nice malty backbone but just not enough juice or bitterness; moderately sweet. 4/4/5/3/11=2.7
July 04: either I was high a few months ago, or got a bad sample. The pint I had a week ago was full, juicy, wonderfully fresh and grassy/herbal, with a lovely and perfectly balanced finishing tang...this is one of the best Pils out there when fresh, no question.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
DRAFT--Deep golden color with sharp pine notes in nose. Strong pure white lacing. Bitterness and distinct malt intermingle throughout and hop bitterness takes over completely on finish. Fine pils. CASK CONDITIONED: Apricot notes in nose. Lighter bitterness, no lacing, less carbonation and slightly creamier.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful golden color, as is expected with a good pilsener. Very nice hoppiness, something I'm not used to in a pilsener. The best pilsener I've had thus far.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2003 Nice golden color, nice hop bitterness and sazz hop flavor with a mild caramel malt balance. A good example of a bohemian style pils. I've had this beer before and I will have it again.
I just had this draft last night (12/30)and it was better than the bottle I would rate the draft version a 4.2 or 4.3.

I like all the Lancaster beers, and am happy seeing them expanding rapidly. This pilsener is on the hoppy side, with a nice head and good hoppy aroma. It goes down smooth, with a strong hop/wheat finish. A very nice beer.
