3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, darkish gold body with a tall, airy, white head. Fairly good head retention.
Smell: Scantly grainy accent to the pilsner malt with a sweetish cereal hint to it. Lightly spicy, lightly herbaceous hop character.
Taste: Pils malt with touches of cereal sweetness and (light) graininess. Very soft citrus, bits of hopsice and dried herb from the noble hops. Medium-light bitterness. Gradually, gently drying on the back half and into the crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus, active carbonation.
Overall: Over the years, I’ve never really found a Mendocino that hit the spot, but this pilsner is quite good. A nice surprise.

I like that the Czech style lager seems to be gaining popularity in the States. Dry, malty, with a great earthy, grassy aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from KNB: Big bold aroma of grains, cereal, oats and grass that smelled better than most other pils. Appeared a golden liquid topped with a fluffy foam head. Some evidence of floaties are seen from the bottle. Drink is crisp and taste like a full-bodied pilsner because of the quality usage of malts to hop. One of the better pilsners I know of coming out of California or from the U.S. for that matter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear golden body with a fast fading white head. Toasted malts and a bit of fruit in the aroma. A slight bit of corn. Flavor had a nice toasted malt presence. Corn notes were present but not offensive or negative in anyway. Some mild sweetness. A nice smooth drink.

12oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow, stiffish white head. Aroma is mostly malt sweet, taste is sweet, overall not that good a pilsenere, a bit more like a macro crap imo.
