3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling golden colour with a persistent white head. Aromas of sweet malt and Irish whiskey, oddly enough. There is a chemical freshness along with peachy nectar. I’m undecided as to whether this is an asset or not. On the whole I have decided that I quite like the smell. In the mouth there is an enormous amount of carbonation that brings out slightly tart fruity juiciness and some of the more mellow malt characters. This is a pilsner, but not like I know it. It finishes with an almost Granny Smith apple crispness but I am left wondering about a few things. It wouldn’t slot nicely into the style, it is a curious creature but not without its charms. Does this oddness harm the overall response to the beer and should it be regarded along BJCP guidelines? I’ll prevaricate and judge it whether I liked it or not along with consideration for what it would do if judged more critically. I did quite like it, I have had less charming beers but I’m looking forward to something different next.

What exactly do you compare this to? Honestly it doesn’t have much of a taste or smell. It vaguely is sweetness balanced with crisp and maybe some cereal or wheat basics. Very light carbonation, I poured it from a glass bottle. Very light alcohol, I didn’t feel it. I’d drink this on a warm day or maybe just casually. But I wouldn’t buy it, it doesn’t taste like anything.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent solid yellow color, 1.5mm white head formed but did not lace at all. Aroma of cigarette butts (the cheap ones, trust me on that) and light malt. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt tastes like it has some wheat in it which makes it a little refreshing more than normal, middle has that same cigarette butt taste as I smelt in the aroma, finish is only partly clean and still retains that same damn cigarette butt taste. Can’t tell if it’s Pall Mall Blue 100’s, Camel Filter, or Viceroy’s- still, a little disgusting, even for a smoker like me!

Your basic, refreshing American Craft Beer. Maybe even the Budweiser of Craft? Meant it as a compliment but take it how you like.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Trade with trapped. Bottle received after BB date. Clear gold with a big white head. Sweet, medicinal honey aroma, sweet, stale taste. Light body, flattish. Ugh.

On tap @ Murphy's. Clean aroma with light hop notes. White head with medium bubbles. Very interesting flavor lots of sweet malt flavor. An unexpected flavor in a pilsner. At least I think so. A very flavorful pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Gold color with thin white head that dissipates quickly; some lacing. Toasted malt aroma. Toasted biscuit dominates with a sharp, bitter bite in the backend. No true pilsner flavor but surprisingly complex and refreshing.

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!
