1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grainy aroma of raw sugar and blow dryer hair. Foggy yellow with one finger head that lasts for a time. Hyper sweet taste, like hair soaking in a nutrisweet solution. Prickly body that is filling in an insubstantial way. Like an ice lager on steroids.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
No retention and no lacing. Smells of sweet malt. Tastes of sweet grass. No aftertaste. A weak pilsner, but easy to drink and not offensive.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow. Little head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Flavor is very sweet and malty. Floral and fruity notes. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Not the crisp clean that I expect from a pilsner. Finishes sweet.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Trader Joe’s. Clear yellow-gold pour. Aroma is big sweet grain, floral and corn. Tastes are a mellow mix of the expected grain and some grass hops. Corn isn’t overwhelming. Certainly not offensive (especially for 4 bucks a sixer). A fair bit better than the macro equivalent.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz can. Medium golden pour, slightly murky, with a bubbly snow white head that sticks around a while. Aroma has some grassy notes, a hint of mosquito spray.

Throwback can. Clear yellow beer with a slightly off white head that lasts for a bit. Powdery, light malt aroma. A slight cereal husk astringency, lightly sweet, pleasantly bitter. Reasonably clean lawnmower/tailgate material. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz can, $0.59 from my local Trader Joe’s. Clear golden color. Thin white head, leaves decent bits of lace. Bready, spicy, kind of peppery aroma, with some musty, basement type aroma in the finish. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, light hint of tart. Better than expected.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yeah, this isn’t really a pilsner. This is just another cheap grainy lager, although for 4 bucks a sixer, it’s good for making brats.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz can. Not really a traditional pilsener, almost doesn’t deserve the moniker. Pours clear, dull yellow, good lacing and a nice full head. Poor aroma, scary. Grainy and korny. The taste is ok, nothing remarkable for a pale lager...a little bitter, not fresh. A bit better than macros but not much.
