3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle courtesy of AWISLguy, opened 10/16/14. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a thin creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grassy, herbal hops, bright citrus, lemon peel, grainy malt. The taste is grassy hops, bready malt, mild dough and toast, hints of apple. Medium bodied, moderate lingering bitterness, good balance. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle traded by kalthaus223, cheers! Pours a clear pale chardonnay color with very small head that fades to a ring of white bubbles. Aroma is awesome fresh pils: lightly toasted grain, dough, citrus peel, earthy/spicy/grassy hops, biscuity malt, soft rose petals, sweet honey. Taste is gulpable pale doughy malts and faint orange juice with a little lemon-lime character, honey, and earthy hops. Medium carbonation. My glass is emptying quickly. In the vein of great American pilsners like Prima but softer and sweeter. Very tasty.

Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Clear golden color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lace. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

A nice light pilsner with flavor. Not as easy to drink as spotted cow. Not as memorable as moon man but another solid NG beer.

Clean gold pour. Lemon curd and preserved lemon nose. Highly acidic and inlaid with tarragon and wondrous minerals. Biscuit malt and white crackers compose the clean flavor; tangerine and citrus zest outline prescient hop tones. Classic palate that manages crisp texture and soft intangibles together. An excellent example, though name recognition and reputation is certainly involved here.
