2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear yellow brew with white head. Aroma of sour hops. Taste is very light malt at the start and then a blend of mostly sour hops and some bitterish grass. Thin palate. Disappointing.

Decent pilsner has a little kick to it which is the best part but it’s not super enjoyable, overall average

Yeasty aroma. Slight floral hop aroma but too little for me in a pilsner. Flavor is grainy malt flavor and noble hops. Medium light body. Nice crispness.

Mild hop notes and some grain in the aroma. Pours a clear light gold with a thin white head. Clean flavor, with a little malt sweetness fading to crisp hop bite. Light and easy drinking, this is a great beer to drink on a hot day.

I always get excited to try lagers from the larger craft breweries as they are the ones that seem to have the means to do it properly. This lager in particular is not a home run but definitely a solid brew for Pilsener fans to enjoy. It is a perfectly clear golden brew w/ a long lasting head of mixed bubbles. Its nose is of yeasted bread and a bit of grassy floral notes from the hops. This is a nice, dry beer w/ crisp but not overly vigorous carbonation. It gets a little sweeter as it warms which brings out a lemon note from the hops. It finishes w/ a nice firm, earthy bitterness. This isn’t a top notch pils but New Belgium gets the job done well enough in a hart to make style that I am mildly impressed.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark golden color with a huge foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy, sweet and malty with a bit of sour mash, vague fruity hops and almost Pez. The flavor was tangy with mild bitterness, crisp fruity and floral hops and a bit of perfume and grass. Medium length finish.Medium body. Disappointing.

12 oz bottle pours light, clear yellow. Big fizzy head. Aroma is mild, light hops. Taste is also mild with the typical pilsener flavor that i don’t care for. After taste is crisp and bitter. Not a bad beer, good for the (not my favorite) style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is grassy hops with a lightly bready malt texture poking through. Appearance is a clear golden pour with a thick white head that lingers for quite a while. Taste has got a nice subtle hop note intermingled with a very light malt texture. Palate is medium to low carbonation with a nice clean aftertaste. Overall, Decent stiff for a Pilsener. Cheers!
