3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Moab Brewery. Pours a bright, clear medium-golden color; white head with solid fine-bubbled lacing. Reasonably crisp aroma, showing white grape juice notes with mineral bitterness; sweet grapes. Medium mouthfeel: following the aroma, there’s a white grape note (very present) that sort of pushes this away from an ideal pilsener rendition for me; it’s not sticky, but it’s sweet and slightly juicy and distracts a touch from the mineral bitterness and toastiness underneath. Decent and a bit different. Medium finish: lingering grapes with a very nice, dominant toastiness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a nice straw yellow color with a fairly retentive white foamy head. Lots of Saaz and grass are available through the nose and the flavor. A bit yeasty, though it adds some body, presence. Not a bad Pilz at all!

on tap-pours a white head and yellow color. Aroma is sweet. Taste is sweet medium malt, citrus hops. Does not come across to me as a pilsner. OK carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear straw yellow with a thin, firm, white, foamy cap. The nose was nice and clean. Freshly hopped with a pleasing leafy tone and crispy biscuit malt underneath with a subtle sweetness. The taste followed suit with nice crisp, clean flavors of pale biscuit malts and a nice fresh hop profile providing a nice grab. The finish was crisp and pleasant to the tongue. A very nice pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light straw with very little head. Aroma is sweet malt and grassy hoppiness. Flavor is med. sweet with grassy earthiness and a big smack of diacetyl. Med body. Med. hoppy dryness in the finish.

Draft at brewery: Clear and light gold; nice head and lace. Very crisp and carbonated. Clean. Nice malt flavors of grain, cereal and biscuits, and wafty aromas of flowers and spicy herbs, with Saaz coming through nicely. Balanced and flavorful pils.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at brewery: This was my favorite beer that I had at the Moab brewery. It just barely edged out the Scorpion in my ratings. Pale straw colored yellow with a tense white head. Aroma - crisp and fresh, fruity (pear, peach), yeasty, and some slight malt coming through. Taste - Fruity, yeasty, I can taste everything from the aroma. It also has near perfect amounts of carbonation and a clean, crisp body. There’s some lemon, light malt, and bitter hops in this one as well. Excellent pilsner.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-tap at the brewpub: Good pilsner color of clear straw yellow, a thin firm white foamy top sits for a good while, lace sticks in thin strings. Nice smellin’ pils. Clean, freshly hopped with a pleasing leafy tone and crispy biscuit malt underneath with a subdued sweetness. Taste follows suit with a nicely crisp, clean flavor and body, slightly sweet bubble gum candy esters, pale biscuit malt and a nice fresh hop profile giving a good grab. Well carbonated with a close to medium body feel, crisp and pleasant to the buds. A very nice pilsner.
