1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sweet, adjunct corn flavors dominate. Notes of DMS and oxidation are immediately apparent. Mushy and weak body-- especially for a Pilsner that needs to be crisp and snappy. This has got to be the worst craft-brewed Pils I have had. This one is terrible and needs a lot of work. I had this from the tap, so it is possible the beer wasnít fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Vermont tap house, Williston, VT.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a soft clear yellow color with a nice transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. Bar pourís head.
The smell had some sweet semi-corn-like malts up front. Light bubble gum, some breadiness.
The taste was mainly the same with a sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat light on the body with a nice sessionability as it should be.
Overall, good for what it is, definitely leans towards the German side of the pilseners not the Czech.

On draft @ Hotel Vermont. Just an average Pilsner IMO nothing special. Light and crisp just not my style. Coors Light comes to mind as I drink. Definitely much better beer here in VT.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
had this on tap at Magnoliaís in Burlington, VT. Easily the worst lager Iíve ever had. Cloudy, incredibly yeasty. Like it wasnít aged a day and was right out from a (rather poor) fermentation. I donít think the brewmaster knows what he/she is doing, unfortunately. Will be avoiding from now on.
The official description of this beer includes: "Served best ice cold". Yeahhhhh.... I donít doubt this since Iíd rather not taste a thing if this is what Iím drinking.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
16 ounce sample on tap at a shitty bar in Burlington, VT (Windjammer). The aroma is lightly spicy and has a little doughy sweetness. Not much else happening here. Transparent yellow body with a tiny off-cream colored head. No lacing present. Starts with light herbal spicy hop flavors before this becomes a little honey-like in the middle. Some doughiness is present towards the end. Light bitterness with some vegetal hints. Not too clean or crisp. This really seems pretty close to a macro lager. Scroll past.

On tap at a restaurant in Burlington, VT. Very disappointed to discover a new micro only to find that it tasted exactly like a typical american macro. Overly sweet and unsatisfying. blech.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Shore Acres restaurant in North Hero, VT. Cloudy but pretty orange pour with a small head. Really a nice aroma and flavor, marked with a delightful fruitiness, crisp but subtle hop character, and a good breadiness that always washes things down nicely during the summer. Definitely the best beer Iíve had from them so far.
