5 oz sample draft at the New Albanian Pizzeria and Public House in New Albany, Indiana. The pour is a clear copper golden with a white head. The aroma is cracker barley malt, along with grass and a hint of citrus hops. The taste is a fresh clean balance between the cereal grain and the grassy hops. The palate is light to medium bodied, clean finish.

Draft at the brewpub. Pour is bright golden yellow with a pure white head. The nose is pretty grainy with plenty of Noble hops. Fresh tasting with lots of grassy hop bitterness. I’d drink several of these.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Rich O’s. Pours bright golden with a thin mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops, a bit musky for noble hops, but now looking at the description I can see that I was smelling the Fuggles, which have no place in a pilsener, there *are* noble hop varieties suitable for North America. Taste is grassy, herbal, with slightly aggresive hops. Flavor is cookie dough with some fruity hop character. Mouthfeel is medium, slightly resinous with lively carbonation. I certainly enjoyed this, but with some more suitable hops it would have been one of my highest rated pilseners.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Bob, Michelle, and mostly my baby Jana for the 12th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival today! On tap @ the fest, billed as the brewer’s "Pre-Prohibition" ReplicAle. Nose of cereal & yeast. The brew is light straw yellow. The frothy white head leaves light lace. The beer is a classic example of the old axiom "Don’t judge a book by it’s cover". The spicy bitter profile has a deep finish. The light body is dry & soft.

on tap at Rich O’s poured slightly cloudy golden with medium head. Slightly tangy taste moderately bitter with almost a mild detergent aftertaste. The beer overall was very good but the aftertaste was bad hopefully it was only because they just changed kegs
