3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, gold to light amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy, off white head. Aroma of cereal, toast, light citrus, sweet grass and floral hops. Flavor is cereal, toasted granola, spicy, lightly acidic lemony citrus and floral hops. Light body with a creamy to neutral entry, dry middle, moderate strength, blanketing carbonaiton and off dry, fairly crisp finish. This is one of those beers that I think better of when I sit down and analyze the experience. Pretty good overall, it seems to be better at a higher temperature than most Pilseners, I really liked it around 50F+, whereas I tend to enjoy most Pilseners at ~40F

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Realistically, has to be one of the best pilseners I’ve had. Sweet grain, a bit of carbonation, slightly syrupy on the palate. Slight fruit. Delicious.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a medium golden color with good clarity and a big frothy three fingers of white foam. The nose is very bready, touch of honeyed sweetness and traces of grassy spice. Mouthfeel is crisp, a touch thin but true to style... could use a touch more carbonation...the flavors are very focused doughy bread with a some hints of bitterness. Easy drinker.
