Got the pilsner cone out for this one:

look: thin yellow lightly gold.
palate: up front initially then diminishing.
overall: all over it.
nifty, tightly brewed.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Just pretty average with no outstanding features. Disappointing overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a light yellow color with a thin head. Aroma is sweet with a little bit of corn. Slightly skunky as well. Taste has corn with a good amount of hops. Slightly sweet and syrupy in the finish. Lots of hay and earthy notes. Overall it’s ok, but a little too sweet.

Growler from the beer authority.
Light pour, white head, typical pilsner look. Grassy nose, some grain, a bit sour, a bit of cat piss. The flavor is quite bready with hops that balance rather than coming on too strong as they are wont to do in American pilsners. It’s not quite as bone dry as I’d like, but that’s a minor complaint. Nice light mouthfeel. I rather like this one, which is a pleasant surprise. It’s pretty spot-on for a pilsner so I’m not sure why it fares so poorly here.

Wow, very nice and refreshing. Perfect for when you just want a cold beer on a hot day.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, pale gold. White, lasting head. Sweet, lager malt graininess. Grassy, and some lemon. Creamy palate. Nice pilsener, with a grassy, hoppy bitterness, right at the end.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured a clear pale yellow hue w/ moderate foamy white long-lasting head and thick sticky lacing. Big bready aroma. Initial flavor is mild sweet w/ a light to moderate bitter finish. Tastes are straw, fresh bread, and light grass. Light bodied, avg carbonation and balanced mouthfeel.

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines, cheers Ash. Aromas of zesty lemon, fresh green vegetables. Taste is more green, spice, lemon. Medium body, crisp finish. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - pale lemon with a thin head which disappears fairly quickly.
Nose - big green vegetables, maybe some seaweed or samphire is probably closer.
Taste - green vegetables again which I didn’t expect. A very green spicy finish, almost like a green pepper.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry finish.
Overall - really odd with the green vegetables being bigger than expected.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear bright gold, one finger of creamy electric white head shrinking to a thin collar, minimal lacing. Aroma: sharp and grassy nose, with bright lemon, peppery, with crisp cereal grains, and light white toast. Taste: grassy, lightly herbal, with a white pepper note over some flaky pie crust . Finish: ends with a zing, medium bitterness, held up by a pleasantly soft body. Notes: Beer douche alert: I measure all American pilsners against Oskar Blues MLYP and North Coast Scrimshaw (he said pretentiously). While this wasn’t in that camp, as I prefer a bit more of a bready malt character, this was still pretty good. Aroma and palate were spot on for the style.
