2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fruity esters, nutty malts and herbal, floral hops greet the nose. Clear golden body with a low, white, fine bubbled head that recedes slowly to ring. Some soapy, floral, lavender hops up front with underlying grainy malts and some light fruity esters in the flavour. Medium light body with low carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with ClarkVV, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

Draught. Pours cloudy yellow with an edgy white head. Fruity yeast, malt and hoppy citrus rind aroma. Grapefruit hop and sweet malt hoppy flavor, non-acidic. medium bodied to light, fizzy palate.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear straw to golden appearance. The head is white, shining and lasting. Quite hoppy for a pils, youre let searching for those malts as the perfumey, citric, floral, leafy multi-dimensional hops overtake your senses. Nevertheless, the global feel is rather juicy, citric and ultimately too astringent and bitter for the cause.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at brewpub-alongside ernest and Aubery. Im going to go against the grain on this one. I truely liked this beer. Its not a true pils by any means, but its definately a really tasty beer. pours a golden yellow hue with a small white head. big citrus hop aroma-smells like a citric pale ale. to me, thats cool even though its not true to style. It shows that the brewer is trying to do some crazy things with a normally boring style. The flavors show grasy, grainy malt presence, but it was not detracting. some good hop notes on the flavor that were more german than the aroma sugests. I like this!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy and orange-amber. Thin head, but nice and lingering lace. Medium body ... malty and kind of weighty with a firm carbonation. Very aromatic throughout; mostly flowers, but also herbs, grass and lemon. Malt flavors were grainy and cracker-like, with a very subtle sweetness. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Not a traditional pils by any means, but not a bad beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Wrong hops for a pils IMHO, smells like a an APA. Husky/grainy as well, so I wasn’t enjoying my 10oz pour of this, and scarcely finished half.
