Pours slightly hazy straw with OK white hat. Smells is kind of sweet, cookies or maybe banana. This is a fairly mild pils, with some grassy hops. Not really spicy to me. Drinkable, at least.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
light to medium gold colored with a lasting white head. Very active carbonation. Smell is sweet grainy malt. Simple but nice.
Taste is sweet and malty, with very little yeasty flavor and a balancing bitter zing to it. Ends somewhat sweet. Nice body, and bubbly mouthfeel. Simple and refreshing. Nice pilsner and great for a warm day like today.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks like a pilsner with a bit of wheat in it. Pale, muddled, golden yellow with light carbonation, a small head that dissipates quickly and thin lacing. A citrusy, hoppy, floral nose that is sharp and bitesthe nose. Flat and dry with a clean but bitter finish with hints of apricot.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow pour with very small head. Aroma is very subdued, with little more than hops. Flavor is mild, herby and grassy, with its fair share of malt.
Very boring to drink but with a good pils finish--not to sharp, but definitely not heavy. Very much reminded me of some of the "better" macros. Nothing special.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale weak yellow pour with minimal head, this is simply a boring, watered-down pils with a fancy label from an otherwise good brewer.

I found this to be an extreamly sessionable pilsner. It wasn’t too heavy but it wasnt watered down and left the correct aftertaste in your mouth to make you say wow that was a good traditional pilsner. Not as refined as some but it is a micro-brewed pilsner not from the rheinheitsgebot.

July 2007 - Clear golden color, pillowy head and nice lacing. Strong aroma of flowers and grass. Very nice balance of sweet pilsner malt, grassy and floral hops. Light and refreshing without being watery and bland...full flavor. Good effort from the Left Hand!
