3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I have a friend who used to draw a comic strip for the University of Texas student newspaper called ’Scrimshaw’. It was pretty funny, he would occasionally draw people we didn’t like or professors we had in the comic. It was pretty funny, and so was this beer. It was very skunky at first; an instant after I opened the bottle, the smell hit me unpleasantly and skunkily. But within a few minutes it settled down into fruitiness...grapefruit especially. Kind of weak but pretty well balanced and refreshing.

Pale yellow/gold. Nice head that left some lace. I smelled a citrusy aroma, and tasted grapefruit and hops. More flavor from this beer than I expected.

This beer poured a dark straw color and formed a white head that left some lace. The aroma was of spice, malt and hops. The taste was of malt and hops. The finish has a slightly unusual bitter aspect to it. Interesting flavor for a pilsner

Pale Gold with a nice fluffy white head. We had a party over last labor day weekend and this was chosen as the keg beer due to its easy drinkability. Didn’t get one complaint even from the coors lighters. Good entry level beer.

Interesting beer. Nice golden color. Unique taste, perhaps reminds me of something Red Hook makes... wouldn’t place this as a pilsner.

A tad harsh. Mildly hopped. It has a nice, light aroma and a pleasant aftertaste. Recommended.

I like this pils - a substantial tangy hop action that dances well with the decently round malts.
... the dancers go round, they go round and around, the squeal and the blare and the tweedle of bagpipes, a bugle and fiddles tipping their bellies (round as the thick sided glasses whose wash they impound) their hips and their bellies off balance to turn them. Kicking and rolling about the Fair grounds, swinging their butts, those shanks must be sound to bear up under such rollicking measures ... apologies to William Carlos Williams, especially since that poem is probably more suited to a bock, but sometimes language makes its own strange associations.

one of the better mico pilsners.
