Bottle. There is not much to say about this beer- it is a pretty generic pilsener. Not great, but not bad. Easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden amber color with tons of carbonation bubbles cascading up through the brew to produce a billowy white head of foam. The head is a little on the thicker side, fading over about a 4 min time frame and leaving a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite strong of caramel and toffee sweetness mixed with a little bit of a peach and apricot smell. Along with these aromas comes some nice grainy notes as well as a little bit of some grapefruit citrus hop.
Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat drier bready and cracker taste mixed with some lighter caramel flavors. The caramel fades a bit as the taste moves on but is replaced by some of the peach and apricot fruit smells that were in the nose. These fruit however later fade, again drying out the flavor a bit. With a light hop taste consisting of some earthy and herbal flavors coming at the very end, one is left with a drier and crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the crisp and refreshing nature of the brew the feel is spot on and makes for an easy drinking brew.
Overall – A rather nice drinker overall that makes for a rather good summer brew.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
on tap. Dull aroma with a trace of hay in the nose. Very dim yellow but more white with very slight haze in clarity. Head disappears quickly with no lacing. Flavor is faint bread. Hard to pick up on much past that which I like a little floral aroma and taste to come through slightly in a pilsner. Overall a bit thin and lacking for what I expect. No flaws or off flavors, just needs a little umph!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks kerenmk. 2015th rating in 2015! Clear golden with a white head. Weird aroma of store-bought hummus with za’atar , cardboard and graininess. Grainy flavor, sweetish, with cardboard, a spicy note, and a bitterish finish. Light-bodied. Not fresh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Mild aroma of toasted, husky grains, pale malts and light spicy hops. Similar flavor, light hop spice bitterness with a crisp feel. Pretty clean and easy to drink, but a little bland overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle to glass. Spicy hop, floral and orange with a grainy background. Clear brushes gold with full white head. A bit is a spicy bite and the orange is there again. Refreshing for a night outside.

Draft. Not much interesting aroma, which makes it all the more surprising when big lemon zest flavor hits the taste buds and keeps going. Slightly sticky palate. Summery!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light, sparking yellow. The brief head is gone in an instant. There is no aroma at all. Water is as aromatic as this beer. The flavor still manages to taste like a pilsner. I’m not the world’s biggest pilsner fan, so that might not be a compliment. There is a little malt, on the flavor, some fruity yeast, and then mild hops. Goes down clean. Leaves no impression.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent enough pils, but nothing too sparkly. Pale gold color. Hay, malt on the nose. Body is a light creamy with grainy and hay body. Drinkable.
