3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz brown short neck bottle served into a hard ,clear plastic pilsner glass while camping .
I like the look of this beer nice deep golden colour,slightly on the dark side for a typical pilsner,with a large creamy pure white head.
A very substancial aroma for a pilsner, a varied mix of malt and good hoppiness..some lemon like scent, too weird.
Taste..well i have to say its a strange taste for a pils, its got quite a bit of hop bitterness, but the hops appear to me to be cascade.,i also detected a slighly lemony taste this begins to taste like a pils/ american wheat cross..very odd .
It has a pretty nice feel on the palate, with a semi-dry finish.
Quite a drinkabke beer..but its far from being a pils..however I enjoyed it anyway and judged it from taste rather than style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(12 oz bottle) Slightly cloudy and pale yellow in color, this mild flavored pilsener is lightly malty and mildly bitter, but there is a vague cardboard flavor; Perhaps a slight citrus flavor in the background, and the finish is rather weak; The flavor has very little sweetness, and the palate is dry and fairly clean, but could be more crisp with some more hops in the mix; The nose is on the light side, somewhat sweet with some light malt and hops aromas; Off-white head with retention, but supported by large and very lively carbonation bubbles; Large, patchy lacing is pretty solid; Overall, just kind of boring and uninspired

Golden in color, with a foamy white head. A subtle hop taste, with a little grain in the background. Has a little bit of sweetness as well. I think this is a pretty good little pilsner.

Straw color appearance with a small head and a modest aroma. Well carbonated with a hint of sweetness in the flavor. Light-bodied with a crisp, dry, refreshing uncomplicated taste that is exactly what you want sometimes.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2005 Pour is golden with plenty of carbonation and a bubbly head that quickly disapeared. Not a strong aroma. Just a touch of hops. The flavor is weak. Just a touch of hops bitterness. Not a bad beer at all. Just not an award winner.

Beer pours medium golden with a dissipating egg white head. Aroma has much more malt presence than your typical pils. Flavor is also rather malt driven with a malty grainess and some decent hoppiness that finishes somewhat dry. Pretty tasty.

Boy. Being a huge fan of this brewery this was a big letdown. Don’t have much to add to the last few reviews.
