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. Iím 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 wouldnít 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? Iíll 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 Iím looking forward to something different next.

Glass bottle. No expiry date. So who knows.
Pours a honey color. About one finger head. Doesnít last long. Does leave a little around the edge of the surface. No lacing.
Aroma is light. Not a lot of anything. Breadiness. Lemon zest. Thatís about all.
I might as well be drinking bread. Thatís about all I can taste. Again there is some citrus or lemon in there. It tastes pretty good but thereís not much to say about it.
Mouthfeel is medium. It tastes light. It finishes slightly bitter but smooth.
Overall its okay. I think its slightly off for a pilsner. Not as good as I expected or hoped for, but still not bad.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Into a tulip chilled. Pastel orange and hazy with a lot of protein caught in suspension. Nose hints at gooseberries and blackbutt honey, pot pourri, leavened dough and a hint of cough medicine that is just a little leftfield. Buttery, caramel and soapy on the palate saying that this sample is a little over íconsume byí. Prickly carbonation lets way to a soft finish that hints at pepper and stale hops. Diacetyl slick with a hint of sherry that builds, Iím guessing maybe two years or more in the bottle. Need a fresh one..., quick like! (12fl.Oz, no date stamp, Intíl Beer Shop, Leederville)

What exactly do you compare this to? Honestly it doesnít 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 didnít feel it. Iíd drink this on a warm day or maybe just casually. But I wouldnít buy it, it doesnít 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. Canít tell if itís Pall Mall Blue 100ís, Camel Filter, or Viceroyís- 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 Arielís 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.
