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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. A slightly hazy amber pour with a thick and fluffy beige head. The pleasant aroma features an uncharacteristically high amount of freshly cut grass, zesty citrus rinds, tangy orange juice, and grapefruits in addition to the typical-for-the-style wheaty graininess. Thin to medium-bodied and crisp on the way down. The taste starts with a little caramel and a wheaty graininess. Doughy. Grassy. Zesty citrus rinds and some bitter grapefruits finish things off. Lemony. Kinda resiny/oily with some pine. A great beer, especially for the style.
