3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours gold with a moderate white head. Strong aroma of grassy hop. Medium body with pale malt and grassy hop. A bit of sweet overpowered by hop bitter - just lightly bready. Finishes nicely clean and bitter. Lots of stuff in this one. Not at all thin.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bomber that pours a hazy yellow with aromas of grass, hops, and slight hint of apples. Tastes of grass, light hops, and had a slight sweet finish. Refreshing in Florida heat.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Taps, Petaluma. Clear yellow with small white head. Noble, floral, grainy aromas to start but a little solventy as it opens. Flavor is a little corny, toasty, but disappointingly unbitter. A touch chemical on an otherwise smooth finish.

On tap at the brewery. It pours a clear yellow color with a big white head. It has a lemony/orange aroma with some noble hops spiciness. The flavor has grainy malt, lightly sweet corn and good noble hop bitterness in the finish. The carbonation was a bit low.

damn only the second rating? wow. Gold pour. Some nice hop aroma and light malt. Flavor is malty and has a good dose of hops. I was surprised that this one was smooth and easy to drink. Not amazing, but still ok.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a hint of haze in the yellow hued body. Head is white and quick to fade. Aromas are grassy, herbal hop notes, sulfur, sawdust, grainy, pils malt, a bit of DMS, and a sharp note that I can’t quite place (could just be a carbonic bite, not sure). Flavors are mild. Bready. Good malt character that finishes slightly sweet. Light herbal hop notes. Quick duration. A hint of DMS but less than the aroma. Lively bubbles and dry. Decent.

A unique pilsner. Smells and tastes fruity, almost more like a wheat. One of the better pilsners I've had.

This clear golden beer poured with a fluffy white head and a grassy aroma. It’s a refreshing drink, with a decent pale malt base and sufficient hop bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz, purchased at Andy’s Market in Sebastopol. Pours an almost slightly pinkish-tinged golden color; slightly hazy; significant white head formation with good retention and the lacing; that off-color just really gets me here (seriously, look at it alongside another pilsener). Some green apple and strange fruitiness in the aroma; light mineral bitterness; this smells a bit green and flawed, sadly; tried this alongside Trumer Pils (bottle) and while the latter was inevitably green-bottle skunked, it carried the clear pilsener notes much more clearly; this is very fruity, minimally bitter, and not overly crisp. Medium mouthfeel: this follows the aroma pretty closely, some red fruit and light bubblegum yeastiness (seriously?), light mineral and hints of citrus notes, and a somewhat meaty (heft-wise) and sugary core; fluffy, pillowy carbonation helps the mouthfeel; otherwise a heavily off-style pilsener, perhaps a bit flawed, but not unenjoyable by any means: it actually somehow survives the green apple, off color, and misplaced fruit. Lasting finish, with lots of red fruits and an emergent mineral bitterness that lingers, along with a toastiness, similarly late in appearance.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from kmweaver. Thanks man! Nose is rather cidery with bread and peppery hops underneath. Pours hazy pale golden thinnish head. Bread, some cider sweetness, perhaps light yeast esters (weird) bread and lightly dry bittering hops in finish. Light but off and not to style.
