2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Average all the way. Poured a clear yellow color with a tiny white head. Corn, malts and grass in the aroma. Flavor was crisp malts, corn and metallic flavors. Very thin and watery body. Not a whole lot to this beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear light yellow color with a small white head that fades quickly with little remnants. Aroma of corn, straw, grassy hops, and a little malt. Flavor mainly corn and a little hops, a bit of butterscotch too. Kind of a grainy texture, a bit tinny in flavor too. Nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow-golden color with a small white head that leaves some lacing in the glass. Aroma of pale and sweet malts, straw, grassy hops, and cereal grains. Flavor follows suit pretty closely. Light-medium bodied, with a malty, fresh, grainy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice pilsner and drinks pretty easily- feels just right for the style.

On tap at brewpub
This was the best option at Morgan Street which is not really saying much. Perhaps it was because of the other beers that I tried that evening which bumped the score up but even this was only so-so. Of course it is much easier to make a watery pils seem run of the mill than other styles that are actually meant to have some depth. If I were dying of thirst I might try this. Otherwise I would look for water.
Aroma / Appearance - Carbonated golden bubbles floated to the surface in a steady stream of activity. Sweet after dinner breath mints and honeycomb stood out unlike the feeble hops which must have been embarrassed by the company they had to keep.
Flavor / Palate - The taste was a reasonable facsimile of a pilsner. Unlike the others it was nearly spot on. Thin in the mouthfeel the main tastes were a combination of old hops and mellow malts. It does actually have some finish instead of fading like a choke artist down the stretch. Regardless I would not come back here for a single beer that might be the best option in the Landing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled at the 2009 Parkville microbrew festival. Pours yellow with a medium white head. Has lots of bread dough to the aroma. Has a mild flavor but is not full of pils grains or character that it should have. A tinge of buttery diacetyl is detectable.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
[tap] Watery finish which seems to be the trademark for most of the beers here. Aroma is flowery, pours a yellow/gold. Overall not a bad beer, but not a great beer.
