3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler @ the brewpub. It has a thick straw color with a thick head and a sticky lacing. Aroma is lightly lemon with a herbal hops, white bread, and some mineral malts. Taste is heavier with a sweet herbal hop finish. Its a good pils but it just doesn’t pop and not vibrant enough in its hoppiness. A pils is something that needs that "crisp" character, which is missing here.

On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a clear golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of fairly fresh European hops and some pale malt. Body starts with decent thickness for the style with an earthy piny hop presence to balance the lightly sweet malt. Finishes more bitter and dry. A pretty decent pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, pours a clear golden amber brew with a slow dissolving white head. Decent retentionand lacing for a pilsner. Aroma of sour apples, a touch of citrus, light malt and some grass hops. Taste is lightly carbonated, piney hops, medium body, and a bitter aftertaste. This brew is more like a premium bitter than a pilsner and quite good.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Some faint sweet fruit notes with a background of hops. Clear gold in color with no visible carbonation. Frothy white head that is mostly lasting. Beautiful lace coats glass. Nice Euro pils flavor with faint hops. Diacetyl notes make it less palatable in quantity.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Translucent and bright gold with a nice creamy head. Garden variety aroma: daffodils and lemon grass being most prominent. Sour lemon twang at first, matched with a modest pilsner hop presence. There’s a strange tinge to this. Musky and rusty, like licking a flagpole. Alpha levels are off.
