3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a light off golden color w/ a crips thick white head and some nice lacing. Aroma is clearly hoppy more so than I expected thinking I was getting a blonde. Palate is smooth but not big, full but not thick.. if that makes any sence. Flavor is well hopped some floral and grassy notes w/ a good amount of grain and not much sweetness. Fairly bitter. A great beer for the sytle.

Aroma is that wonderful European toasty pale malt, like a fresh bottle of Czechvar, taste is the same toasted malt, with much more spicey hop and zing then your European pilsners. Name is confusing,makes you think your getting a blonde style brew,should be Hometown Pils

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This Pilsner seemed to me a bit more like a pale ale than any thing else. Its the most aggressivley hopped pils I have come across. There is little malt to be found in the taste because the hops dominate the flavor. Very bitter finish. I heard so many good things about this beer that I ordered a case without so much as trying it. Now, the case is gone and I am left with the opinion that my search for the perfect pils goes on.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey - Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is spicey, herbal hops and light grain. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt with a nice hop bitterness. Medium body. A very nice lager. Thanks Bill and Wendy.

Pours crystal clear light golden with a lingering head. Nice spicey hop aroma and flavor. All americans who think they know what a pilsener is, need to try the real thing!!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Bob McFarland Liquors in McFarland, WI. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a thin and fast dissolving white head. Aroma of muti-grain breakfast cereal, grassy hops, with a touch of honey. Taste is very high carbonated, light bodied with flavors of light multi-grain and some light peppery spice. Finish is a moderate hop bitter aftertaste that quickly disappears.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from Woodmans in Beloit, WI (June 2007) served just a few minutes out of the fridge from a Christoffel glass. A beautiful pour; big frothy, creamy head laces well as it decays above the dark gold/light amber clear body…..grassy, lightly sweet, lightly mineralic aroma (lime, chalk) is fresh enough but a bit subdued….the body is moderately sweet, a bit sticky at first but the juiciness makes me not care so much, drying out and getting quite bitter and hoppy at the finish, with a hint of dry woods and a touch of sulfur….quaffable enough, but far from this brewery’s best lager.
