4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A fine pre-prohibition hoppy pilsner. Slightly hazing yellow packed with small carbonation bubbles. Smells slightly sweet like fresh cut fields.Clean clear taste of pilsner with tangy bitterness to cleanse the palate. The hops hangs on long enough to want you to drink more.
The corn adjuct is only discernable to the most sensitve tastes. I can keep drinking them well past what I should.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A ton of wheat, rye and lemon flavors. Mostly citrus aroma. Unfiltered and seems stronger than 5.9%. A refreshing, enjoyable session brew. I think that "snappy" is the adjective that describes it the best.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - this is based on a "pre-prohibition" pilsener. It is a pretty big one, but all of their brews are. Slight corn sweetness in the nose and flavor. Pretty standard pilsener appearance. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured yellow with thin white head. Apple-ish aroma. Nicely hopped with more apple in the flavor. Finishes quite dry with burning carbonation. A nice, tasty pilsner reminiscent of some Australian beers with the apple taste. Good

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.
