Nice slightly fruity and sweet flavor, with a perfect bitter hop finish. Just enough hops to let you know they’re there.

On tap. Light golden color with decent sized white head. Very light with a little bitter hoppiness. I find that Mahrs beers make excellent session beers.

Cloudy golden color,with a few yeasty glubuals floating around.The head was small and white fading quickly to a light lace.Nice malty mild hop aroma with a slight citrus hint,and some what sweet.Light malt and wheat taste with a little lemon,lemon grass and very mild hop presence.Light feeling and fairly drinkable.Not a great brew but fairly decent and worth trying again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light hazy golden yellow. Malt, honey, some hops in the aroma. Could maybe use some more hop bite, but is a nice well balanced and drinkable pilsener.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A little bit skunky and papery, and so much carbonation that it seemed harsh. Grassy at the finish, but harsh, papery and grainy otherwise

Rye, glue nose. Wet paper taste. Some malt rye flavors. Slight bitterness in the end. Too much fizziness that ruined the palate near the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16.9 oz bottle, pils glass, 52 degrees. Average, white, fizzy head diminishes quickly and sits on a pale yellowgrain body that is slightly hazy with vigorous carbonation. Toasted light bread and grain malt (mod); perfume, grass hops (mod); doughy yeast (light). My overall impression is that the aroma is crisp, light, and clean. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Efficient toasted grain malt backs up spicey, citric saaz hops. Watery texture, fizzy cabonation, medium-light body. The bottom line is: a tasty pilsner, but a bit expensive for what it is.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little haze - unfiltered? Quite bright yeelow, frothy, not very tight head. Great aroma (saazy?), very light mouthfeel, only a trace of malt sweetness, pretty well balanced - ultimately, I think it is well made but not challenging at all. Touch of corniness unfortunately. Yes, a bitter finish, but good to my taste.
