2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 16 ounce can from the liquor store. $9.29 for a four pack.
Deep golden almost orange color. Low CO2, poor foam retention. Some malt sweetness in the aroma. High viscosity, tastes like a high percentage of caramel malt. Subdued bitterness with a lasting residual sweetness. Decent enough blond lager, but not very Bohemian at all.

Draft. Deep yellow/orange with a short, white head. Aroma of raw grain, light corn, grass. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. Lacking crispness. Little nuance with an undercurrent of dusty grain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. Pours a filtered tanned yellow. Thin, soda-like head. Classic brewhouse aroma, lager yeast, mild noble hop. Probably the best made in the state. Smooth, clean, refreshing. Sublime, easy going, classic. Not so hopoy for the style, leans into the clean golden malts.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. can, consumed on 7-5-14. Dry aroma features scents of champagne, hay, manure, compost, and overripe orange. The off scents are subtle, but they are there, and there isn’t much good to make up for them. Cough-inducing smell. Pours a clear gold/brass. The slightest hint of a green hue, in the direction of Yellow Chartreuse liqueur. Light effervescence. Small to moderate amount of short-lasting, beige head. Smoky, dry, leathery taste surprisingly features a coal flavor as well as rye bread. I like what’s going on in the flavor a lot more than I do the aroma. Quite tasty and interesting. Medium body. Not as crisp in the palate as a lager should be. Somehow lively (although only a bit so) and undercarbonated at the same time. Forgettable palate effects. Overall, Lazy Monk Bohemian Pilsner constitutes an odd combination of legitimately good flavor and legitimately bad aroma. Unfortunately, the appearance and palate do the beer no flavors. It definitely is a memorable pilsner, and I am happy to have experienced it. I am giving extra weight to the flavor in the overall score.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in Waukesha, pours a golden amber with slight foamy head. The aroma is mild with a banana yeast smell. The taste has a lingering chalky and bitter feel. Finishes with a dry, bitter, yeast taste. Not too bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can:   Bright straw, orangish, thin white head, frothy, little lacing.   Odd herbal aroma, seems a bit sweet, but also a touch corny.   Seems like a touch of ashtray is in there.   Noticeable on the tongue, that ashtray.   Slight smoke, which is odd.   Old stale air, almost like bike tire.   Reminds me of Epic Ales saki yeast.   Sweet and malty otherwise, but odd.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Odd beer, ashtray, like an ESB, but with a nice sweet grassy maltiness.   Don’t care for the ashtray...   Thanks Bob!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from Lazy Monk Brewery Taphouse. Pours a beautiful deep gold with medium white head. Nose has rich dough with toasty overtones of fresh baked bread backed by assertive noble hops with an aroma of hay and herbs. Palate is very round rich and full for such a pale style. Flavor is hearty and breadlike but also quite refreshing, with slightly bitter herbal hop notes throughout which linger long into the finish, in fact after each swig fresh hop tang remains in the mouth for 3-4 minutes. Absolutely delicious stuff.
