Boardman,Oh - Vintage Estate Wine and Beer - 12 bottle. Slight haze to the medium golden pour, soft, snow white head. Aroma has some grainy accents, a touch of grassiness. Solid pilsener flavor, some breadiness, hint of honey sweetness. Decent crispness to the mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is very grassy and grainy, a bit skunked at first. Pour a lightly hazy yellow-golden with a soapy bright white head, a hint of leg. Taste medium bitter with wonderful noble hops, not quite into Czech spagh funk but getting there, deeply entwined with caramel, grass, and lighter green notes, fresh Pils grain character that never actually ever leads to breadiness. Minimal citrus but there is a hint of sunshine, and though the heavy fat body is too full for what I think a pilsner should be, it’s clean and refreshing. [2016.08.03: 3.1]

Bottle. Pours a clear, pale straw yellow with big foamy white head, excellent retention. Nose is faint skunk (which I find all too often in Pilseners), grass, lemon, crisp malt. Mouth is mild, malty, grassy, lemon. Average

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crisp, clean, yet tasty, this pilsner is nicely balanced to be easy drinking yet enough body to know that you’re not drinking the beer you drink while mowing the lawn.

Tap @ brewery. Golden with thin white head and decent lacing. Smells of honey and wheat. Flavor is more to the honey side with a lightly astringent bitter follow up.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the brewpub in Cleveland, OH. Good lacing on a clear golden pour. Higher carbonation. Red apple nose, yellow apple. Cidery and stale. Taste is cidery, stickier for style. Another great beer for identifying common brewing flaws. This one was less offensive than some of the DMS laden offerings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear yellow color with a thin and fizzy white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light, clean body with a spiced hops character and notes of sweet malt and grain. The finish is mildly hoppy with a short bitter aftertaste. Above average overall.
