3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
DATE: August 12, 2016... OCCASION: After a construction-related trip, we are now settling in at Uncle Jer’s... GLASSWARE: Penn State pilsner... pours a light golden body with sparse effervescence... the head, courtesy of a can in crisis, explodes with thick white froth that settles to thick glass-clinging algae and an even quarter-finger topping... an intriguing, slightly funky lemon grass crops up in the nostrils, while the hops also suggest softened Saaz ping... the malts are doughy, with barnyard funk an unwelcome suggestion... smooth, sippable to the point of slammable... light in body and effervescent enough to refresh... little aftertaste, with a dry finish... flavors include lemongrass, sourdough, flowers, apple and pear....on a humid, hot night, this beer is a reasonable compliment, refreshing enough... the first I had from this brewery, this pilsner suggests that others in their portfolio are worth tasting...

Aroma is malty, but taste has some nice hop balance to it. Overall very solid.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ North Country / Slippery Rock PA --- Hazy light / medium amber, ivory head that drops to a thin cover, dots of lace. Taste is malt that grows pleasantly sweeter as it flows through light fizz. Thin flowery hops to finish. Light, summery, so easy to quaff on a hot Pennsy afternoon.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium golden yellow with a thin white ring. Not much of an aroma. Slightly oily texture. Taste is fairly crisp with a little hop bite. Not too bad, fairly enjoyable for the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden yellow. Aromas of corn and grains with a touch of hops. Flavor is bland, grainy taste.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured into a pilsner glass.
2.75 A: Clear deep yellow color. Big foamy white head requiring two pours. Retention is average and spotty lacing is left.
2.0 S: Grainy maltiness with a dusty woodiness. NondeScript fruitiness. Hmm. This isn’t what I want in a pilsner. It isn’t clean. There’s a vegetal component that is DMS-like, but it’s not quite corny.
2.0 T: The taste isn’t any better. Lots of strange vegetal off-flavors. The base is again grainy with lemony fruitiness.
2.5 M: Even the mouthfeel is lacking. Medium body. Despite lots of carbonation, it seems flat on the tongue. Lacking in creaminess.
1.75 D: I hope the rest of the mixed 8-pack does better than this one.

On tap in WashPA. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A big sweet malty nose. Light pils malt, honey, lemons. OK. Smooth, very light.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweaty golden yellow, hella carbonation. Shaving cream head. Looks like a lager with a little extra.
The aroma is very saccharine sweet, like heavily sugared corn syrup; maybe it’s the name, but the ’wet rock’ aroma is definitely there. It’s really not that unpleasant in the nose but it’s unusually sweet.
The flavor is is more Heineken than Bud Light, as it has a Eurosweetness to it, almost like it came over the pond in a green bottle. (This one is in a can.) It’s not quite lightstruck, but it doesn’t taste far from it.
Palate is chewy. This isn’t a horrible beer by any stretch, but it’s not entirely good.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty bland Pilsner that didn't do too much for me. No real hop twinge and the malting was metallic and dull.

Pale golden. Grainy with a papery bitterness. Pretty sweet. Very foamy from the can.
