3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Millstream. $3.25 for pint. I had a taster of this at first while trying their doppelbock, but decided to chase it down with this. Very pale in a glass taster, but there’s a little more color to be seen in the larger cup, even if it is white plastic. A thin layer of fizz instead of the bubbly head of a canned lager. Toasty malt smell with a side of peppery Noble hops. Taste: well, I still have some of the doppel stuck to my tongue, but this is darn hearty. Clearly a full grain beer with a light pils toast. Interesting that the ingredient list above shows no real surprises in specialty grains. It’s hard to find a pils with any great complexity by definition, but then again, I can appreciate a beer with everything a light lager should have and no shortcuts or off tastes. On the unseasonably warm March day that I tasted this, the cup warmed up enough to let a bit of ester off the beer. Happy little burp at the finish.

A- Corn, slightly sweet, subtle lemon.

O- This one was pretty crisp and refreshing. A bit of hoppiness to it and a decent flavor. Not totally bland and boring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow light gold, creamy head, frothy lace. Aroma is soapy, like dawn or something, floral, light lemon, slight pepper. Some bready malt. Taste is some dry malt, light floral, light lemon, stale bread, fizzy but flat tasteing. Mild medium grass lemon finish. Lemony linger. Not bad. Decent, nothing to really complain about. Its summer its going down good.

On tap at the brewery. Gold and clear appearance with a white head. Mild aroma of pale malts, earthy noble hops, lemon zest and citrus fruit. Similar flavor, mild and lightly bitter, easy to drink.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw colored and clear with a thin wisp foam. Hay and grass aromas are typical of the style. A little graininess to the malt provides some mouthfeel to an otherwise thin beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours clear yellow. Grainy, lacking distinguishable hops, malts, etc. Probably a good example of an average pilsener, but who honestly knows or cares.
