3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours clear and straw coloured with small head and good lacing; woody nose and a bit of fruit; bitter and dry but it tends to get a bit sweeter as it warms up to room temp.; sticky and a little creamy, nice carbonation, medium body on the big side. Sort of a contradiction in terms, reminds me more of a IIPA than a pilsner. I like it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with a medium white head. Strong yeasty aroma. Creamy body, low carbonation. Spicy and yeasty up front, some hay and straw notes towards the middle. Finishes stale and slightly flat. Something is missing, body seems too thin for the abv, maybe it’s the yeast strain.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet on the nose. Golden yellow with a mild head. The hops are well subdued by the malts. Smooth drinking. Light sweetness with an almost salty pils taste. Good, but not the greatest.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours amber, nose is pineapple, toffee, taste is juicy fruit, sweet and cloying, more so the longer it warms.

12oz bottle pours a golden color with a bit of head. Nice malty flavor but overpowered by the alcohol booziness. Very sweet.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
"Not as hoppy, grassy, or complex as I was expecting, though it was a nice refreshing brew. More sweet malt, with some hay-like hops, but nothing overpowering. A little alcohol on the nose, but not overdone. Overall, a nice pils, but there’s better out there within this cool style. 2013 - had a fresh one on tap. Gotta upgrade. All the flavors and aromas of a good pils, just amped up with a little more hops."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent strong pils, not overly malty as some in this style. Normal pils color and body is slightly viscous, slightly sweet grain aroma. Taste is rather smooth and not too sweet, some honey and corn. Decent, but not the best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Slightly hazy golden pour with small white head. Aroma of malts, bread, dough, slightly fruity, caramel and hops. Taste of caramel malts, bread dough, slightly fruity and hoppy boozy finish . Full bodied, soft carbonation, creamy soft mouthfeel, nicely balanced. Just ok.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft sample at the brewery. Golden pee pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is hay, sugar, cereal and hints of pine and grass. Taste is a sweet sugar bomb. Some bitter hops, but mostly a sweet, muddled mess. Would be better off listed as a malt liquor.
