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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Light golden hue, great visibility (can see right through to the other side), w/mostly diminishing white fizzy head. No lacing. Sweet fruity aroma. Light crisp fruity taste up front with the same finish. Lively carbonation on palate, oily texture. The lively carbonation was the best part about this beer.

Beer of month club. Gold color. Aromatic for a pils - some lemon, malt. Taste has some malt,caramel and a hoppy finish that makes this more bitter than any pils I can remember - which is good! Not a great beer, but a good one. Easy to drink.

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.

Like most American attempts at Czech-style Pilsners, this one doesn’t quite seem to get it, although it’s close. The aroma and initial flavor is excellent...fresh, crisp, relatively light-bodied, with both a strong hop presence and a grainy malt, somewhat grassy, in the aroma. I also detect floral notes in the aroma, and I love this. Where it goes slightly (ever so slightly) wrong for me is that the finish is a bit too heavy, and it leaves a heavy, bitter aftertaste, rather than a clean, fresh bitterness. I like the carbonation--contributes to it being fresh. I wish they could retain this beer’s aromatic qualities and up-front bitterness while making the finish cleaner tasting. Still very good and I’d drink again.
