2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dog & Pony, Renton
Light bronze colour. Fruity aroma - pear mostly. Fairly crisp, with light diacetyl. Fairly dry towards the finish, with some biscuity, grainy notes. A hit or miss style - this misses for me, taking me nowhere.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange, thin white head. Smells kind of sweet and sour. Its heavy - overly so, actually - and sweet at first, then a nice bitter finish. On tap, Barley’s Aheville.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich gold color, clear and crisp. Small white head. Grainy, bready flavor with a nice boost from bittering floral hops. Alcohol nicely masked in this amazing beer. Not a typical pils, but quite nicely crafted.

Fruity aroma, some citrusy notes, clean and spicy. Pours rich gold color with a thick white head. Crisp, cereal, great pilsner flavor, kicked up a notch. One of the better imperial pils i’ve had actually.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Vino’s in Roseville, CA. I really don’t like pilsners, but this one was actually pretty good. The taste starts off a bit sweet, then turns bitter at the finish. The body is surprisingly strong and malty for this type of beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Federal in Durham, NC. Orange color resembles an IPA more than a pils. Slightly cloudy. Big white head. Earthy hops with a touch of lemon grass in the aroma. Malty flavor with a touch of hops and a surprisingly dry finish that gets harsh by the end of the gllass. Ain’t nothing wrong with this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprised there aren’t more ratings of this. Had a couple pints at The Federal, Durham. Tall Hefe glass, this beer’s got a nice deep orange hue and moderate head. Not much of a nose on this one, but what there is resembles a wit more than a pilsner. The mouthfeel is pretty rich and the taste slightly recalls Victory’s prima. Not bad but a little harsh.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint on tap at The Graduate in Davis, CA. Pretty faint aroma. Some mild herbal hop notes are present. I also get some lightly sweet, fruity notes, too. Mildly hazy orangey-copper body with a smallish off-white head. Floral, perfumey hop flavors to start, turning biscuity, grainy, and a bit metallic. Finishes dry, herbal, bitter, and hoppy. There is a lingering light sweetness. This is ok, but seems a little sweet and citric.
