2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
"The description of this beer was intriguing. It was ok, but really didn’t live up to expectations. A good food beer, but there’s not enough to really catch my interest as a stand-alone. Light in color and body, and surprisingly light on the hops given the name. The slight spice from the rye and a light bready malt backbone put this just over average, but barely."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grass, resin, herbs).
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
A very Americanized (and simple) hop nose, but thankfully no off notes. Good balance in the mouth too. Overall much better than anyone could expect...it isn’t husky, soapy, or loaded with DMS.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Vibrant golden, light carbonation, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Cereal nose, pale hops, stale bread.   Pale breadiness up front, malty, mealy, a little dank.   Hops aren’t hoppy or biting, they
are rather dank and musty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit for not being somewhat light its pretty smooth.   As it warms the hops become more apparent, but not in bitterness.   Pale breadiness, dank hops, and a
touch of sweet maltiness lingers.   Tiz okay.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Nice, bright golden pour, crystal clear and still, yet presenting a bountiful head of pure-white foam. The aroma is sharp and seductive, hinting at a nicely hopped brew. Indeed, this drinks like a super-powered version of the best, hoppiest pilsners of southern Germany and the Czech republic, but with an added plus of a big heavy mouthfeel. Good, good stuff, an excellent lager made for the hop-snobs. (#5067, 6/23/2013)
