4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can into lager glass, unreadable can dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright golden yellow color, with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Awesome appearance. Aromas of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately creamy/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous mouthfeel that is nice. Zero alcohol warming as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great hoppy American Pilsner style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
appearance: light amber, with a frothy off-white head and decent lacing; doesn’t look much like a pils… aroma: fresh grass, some pepper, brown toast, saltine cracker, light cardboard. taste: toasted brown bread, bitter floral hops, grassy hops too, some pepper and earth and a hint of citrus. finish: high carbonation, drying hops make for a clean finish with a bit of lingering bitterness. notes: Didn’t feel like much of a pilsner; too dark and too toasty. Not a bad beer per se, but not my favorite interpretation of the style. Can from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Whole Foods-Lamar. Kind of fruity for a pilsener, very citrusy, grapefruit. Pours out a hazy golden with huge fluffy head. Nice cereal malts come out deep in the flavor, but the citrus kind of distracts from the fact that this is a pils. Good stuff.
