3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
peachy floral noble hops in the nose, light corn/grainy taste with lingering resinous finish. Headache 10 minutes after the glass, as wit all mac’s beers for me. Too much sugar in the grain bill I guess

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transparent gold, thin white wispy surface head. Really husky lemon-cracker nose. Creamy milk/cracker flavor, light hop bitterness in the finish. Pleasant, balanced, nice stuff, if a bit straightforward.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice doughy malt nose, light honey and some grassy hops. The taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. The hops are fresh cut grass and flowers, and a touch of lemon. The malts are a bit squishy and out of place in a pils, should crisp and cracker like whereas these are more pale ale like, but it still works. Very nice beer.

Bottle courtesy of tarheels86, thank you sir! Pale yellow color. Aroma of malt and black pepper. Taste is bitter start to finish, decent body, maybe a slight sourness in the finish. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330mL. Pours a clear straw with a giant, white, rocky head with massive sheety lace. Aroma is grassy hops, lemon, fresh flowers, tropical notes from the Nelson Sauvin, lilac. Taste is just a bit too doughy and grainy for a pils but is rich, fresh, fairly sharp, moving to full nutty to tree sappy bitter. Dry palate.
