3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a footed pilsner glass.
A: Pours a straw color that isn’t completely opaque. The head features a nice layering of foam, about three fingers high in total. Texture-wise, it’s bubbly and rocky, typical of the style.
S: There are a decent amount of grassy hops here, along with a touch of fruity esters. Nothing remarkable here, yet perfectly acceptable given the style in mind.
T: The first thing I notice on the palate are some hints of fruity esters. Afterwards, it shifts to a mildly hoppy finish. The hops here are grassy, earthy, lemony, and even a bit peppery. There’s a really enjoyable balance to this one, all told.
M: Light on the palate, with sweeping carbonation. I’d reckon it could be a touch drier; then again, I like my pilsners bone-dry. Easy to drink as it should be.
O: Solid. There are few other pilsners I’d go for over this one, but I’d pick this over many others, too.

Bottle at Kibroms.Average appearance, grainy aroma, comes off kind of the lager side. Lightly hopped, mild bite at the end, could use a bit more hops. Overall, not too bad, but pales in comparison to its German ancestors.

Nice pilsner. Little multiprocessor and heavier in body than is traditional, but still very drinkable. I’ll have more.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This beer tastes and smells exactly like Scrubbing Bubbles. Seriously. Next time you have it, spray some Scrubbing Bubbles on the counter and compare. It’s the same thing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Spotty Dog: A pleasant and refreshing brew, yet it comes up lacking for my Pilsener loving self. Nose and body is Hay and grass. Body and finish could use more malt and hops. Some lemon notes that seem out of place.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
To me, this was a pretty balanced Pils. It pours a nice, foamy head, but dissipates quickly. A snort produced a very subtle nose of some of the domestic, corporate brews. Still, I found it to be a very palatable beer with a mild finish.
