3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Millstream. Light yellow appearance with a white head. Light German hoppy, lager nose. Light grainy malty flavor on mild German hops. Easy drinking but not all that exciting of flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brennan’s. Poured clear straw golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweeter lemon notes over honey and bready malts (all of it was sweet, actually).. soft overall and very approachable. The flavor found an initial hit of tart lemon, but after that it was all sweet again.. honey led with bready notes and other pale malts backing.. plenty of sweetness plus a twist of lemon on the finish.. this flowed a lot like a palindrome. Lighter-bodied and sweet on the palate with decent movement across the palate.. not great on any facet of the drink, but it was remarkably drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. A. From Iowa. Thanks go to John M.
Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Malt and fish soup in the aroma.
The flavour is malt and mild hoppy bitterness.
After two very good Millstream brews (Hefeweissen/Iowa Pale Ale) this one is quite cheap and disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates quickly and nearly completely. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with a bit of grassy hops with a hint of cookie. Flavor is more balanced with sweet grains and crisp grassy hops with a bit of a sweet finish.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Wow - this is outstanding for this style of beer. Buttery grain, crisp and clean, no real flaws in this. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, WI and one from the brewery in Amana, Iowa. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a fine film and white ring. Aroma of light bread malt, flowery and citrus hops, and some light fruit. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation, semi-sweet fruity, bready malt and a mild bitterness. Finish is semi-sweet at first, then a lingering mild bitterness and a herbal aftertaste. Quite identical to the regular Millstream Pilsner but with some sharper hop bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a bright white head. The nose is a grainy with a little bit of citrus. There is also hay. The taste is grassy with a little bit of oranges. There is also some bread crust in the sweet finish. This is decent, but would be even better if it wasn’t so sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy yellow-tan. Thin, soapy head. Mild aroma, some fresh lemon and doughy malt. A pretty nice Pilsner, somewhat yeasty medium body. Solid noble hops really capture the essence of the style. Not quite World Class, but a well executed offering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Poured a clear golden color with a bubbly white head. Pale malt, noble hop, corn cereal aromas. Light to medium bodied and a bit too sweet. Tasted of cereal grain, honey, and a bit of noble hop.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours dark gold with a medium white head. Has a fantastic aroma very pronouncing of tettnanger hops. Has a slight up front citrus and a big hop bitterness for a pils. This then slips into a mild and lingering aftertaste of oranges. A very nice American version of a German pilsner.
