3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: boozy grain and bread crust, the ubiquitous brewery smell; Appearance: don’t all pilsners look great and refreshing? Nice medium-thick head on pour, and a crisp, clear, bubbly yellow; Taste: a lot more hops than you can pick out in the aromatic boquet, something reminiscent of clover/grass; Palate: very refreshing and drinkable, maybe a little bit heavier than most pilsners, subtle sweetness lingers on the palate; Overall: a good pilsner, but, even though I’ve given it a high score, I probably won’t be able to remember very much about it once I’m through the 6-pack

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Bright straw yet hazy, small to moderate white frothy head, spotty lacing. Clean straw/hay on the nose. A little grassy. Much the same on the tongue. Light dryness. Very smooth and clean, albeit very light too. I suppose that’s to be expected. If this is a spring seasonal, its amazing how well it held up. Tastes fresh. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. A little wheaty profile on the exit, lingering straw and hay. Touch of sweetness too. Very simple, clean, and well made. Thanks Bob!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a COAST brewing curved pint. Split with the fiancee.
A: Pours a solid gold color with a pure white head forming on pour. It recedes slowly to a thick cap with tons of sticky lace.
S: Sticky German hops with that specific spicy bite. Pale malts with a little bit of mineral-like qualities to it.
T: Typical German hop profile, slightly gluey with pale cracker malt and some wheat like qualities. Lightly spiced hop quality as well.
M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Slightly sweet finish.
O: Pretty typical German style lager. The hops are the star which is standard for the style. Nothing mind blowing.
Serving type: bottle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy dark yellow (SRM 4) body......nose is slightly sweet, with hints of apple, pear, light cereal....taste is slightly sweet, with hints of pear, apple, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high. This is a sweet Pilsner. I wonder if they got the attenuation they wanted. The finishing taste is muddled, and not crisp and clean. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy dark gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma is mostly grass and hay with just a hint of citrus. Taste is light bitter. Grassy and herbal. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not too bad. Not one of my favorites but very drinkable.
