3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a nice mid-gold with a fine bubbled foamy head. Aroma was of malts with a fruity twinge. Taste was malty and light upfront and then went into a sour/bitter finish. Palate was decent. Overall, this taste more like a pilsner than a true ’blonde’ but it was OK.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and pale yellow. Flavor is a classic pilsener that doesn’t have any real distinguishing characteristics. Not bad, but boring.

Bottle, thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Pours light yellow with a generous white head and tenacious lacing. Lovely mix of hops; mineral, cereal, grain, light lemon/citrus, grass. Hot damn, this beer is sort of perfect.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear gold pour with a 3 finger, soapy, bright white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is cereal, toast, light grainy sweetness, mineral notes, grassy, spicy, floral and light pine hops. Flavor is more toast, and cereal grain up front, some mineral and bready yeast, nice hop profile, complex and tasty, while still being complex, lots of floral notes, some spicy, a little grass (in a good way), light hints of grapefruit and pine and a nice toasty, lightly honey and malt sweetened hoppy, lightly bitter finish. Light body, with a nicely full, creamy entry, moderate strength, spritzy, but not too sharp carbonation and lightly dry, pleasantly crisp finish. Very tasty, refreshing, yet complex Pils.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours slightly hazy gold. Slight white head. Aroma is grassy hops. Slightly heavier body than i expected. Its got a pilsner taste on the malt side, and a decent hop bite of pine, and a little bit of citrus. Very crisp and refreshing. Pretty good session beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, pale golden yellow. Smallish head. Grassy, floral aromas. Flavor is very typical of a good German pilsner. Flavor is very grassy, with some resinous notes. Very clean finish and mouthfeel. This is a great example of a pilsner--as with most styles Dan takes on, he delivers nothing but a sterling example.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden color with a 2 finger head that hands around for a while. Slight lacing. Aroma is refreshingly light. A little grain with faint hops. Mouth is thin but the taste is pretty solid. Very easy drinking and better than most German Pilseners out there. Grain dominates the taste with a faint bitterness at the end.
