2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours a clear dark gold under a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is bready and doughy malt with minimal to no hops, smells a bit bland. The flavor is pretty in line with that assessment as well. There’s a slightly clingy and doughy maltiness that dominates over the minimal hopping, save for a very light bitterness late in the finish. This just isn’t crisp or sharp like I want from a pilsener. Certainly lacking in hops. Light bodied, a little clingy, soft fizzy carbonation. Below average for the style.
