1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet and acidic with notes of lemon, while the flavor is purely acidic with notes of lemon - must be off. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

This should be called "American" pilsner... don’t go into this expecting big dry malts and a hop kick. This tastes like crisper and better Budweiser, but that’s all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz shorty bottle. Cloudy orange-yellow color, lots of CO2 bubbles lead to a thin white head. Brewery sweet malt aroma. I get some wheaty banana in the first taste, not unlike a filtered-down Hefe. There is, however, some noble hopping that balances it out and leaves it just barely in Pilsnerville. The body is certainly thicker than your typical Pils. Fresh and doughy, this is still an enjoyable beer.

Peepee yellow like Lance’s jersey. No head, no lacing no nada. Why do i dislike pilsners so much? Not sure, but it’s gotta be something in the taste. Tastes like grain and corn. This is actually a pretty passable pils in my opinion. STarting to grow on me.......slowly.."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. There’s a little more on the aroma than I was expecting. Pilsener grass is fresh and pleasant smelling, also the other usual suspects of light lemony citrus and some pale malts. Smells very un-standard-lagerish so I have to give it some credit for that. Pour was fairly unremarkable, but has all the looks of a drinkable, quenching beer for the summer with a bright pale golden color, light bubbly head and minor carbonation. The balance on this Millstream is again very solid and there’s a good balance of flavors which are for the most part pretty standard. Crisp and clean, with only very little off-bitter notes to be seen. Pale malts are there, but as it should be the noble grassy and mild citrus and light herbal hop bitterness show through the strongest. A simple beer as expected, but really pretty pleasant which is what it was intended to be.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pilsner, like any, pours a brilliantly clear straw. There is only a bit of white head, but it lasts. A rich floral and earthy hop aroma is surprisingly strong for a beer this light. The nose dances between a sweet flowery character and a dry, earthy, herbal one. Some robust but clean malt aroma is there as well.
A penetrating hop bitterness greets you immediately and lingers on the middle and sides of the tongue. A strong earthy and herbal flavor backs it up. The bitterness fades a bit to give way to the noble hop flavor, lasting for a moment before receding behind the still present green bitterness. A bit of sweetness provides counterpoint, maintaining a quaffable balance.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a lacing white head. Mild spiced and grainy aroma. Solid acidic and citric flavour with a tart orange fruity note. Not as intended I assume. Citric and orange fruity finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled @ DLD ’08 shared by ??? Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma has hints of dough, herbal hops, mild sweetness, pale malt, and butter (?). The flavor has a fair amount of pale malt, dough, grains, light citrus, and bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied. This is not a style I particularly enjoy, but broke up some of the bigger beers during the day.
