3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours yellow with a thin white head. A pilsner with creamy, lightly toasted malt and some faint grassy, spicy hops in the nose and a crisp finish. Light to medium body, nice carbonation. Glad to have this in cans for the summer. Oscar Blues didn’t pump this up too much, just a solid very drinkable pils.

Looks like a typical American mega-brew. Tastes like one, too.......almost. Good pilsner taste, but has more of a hop bite to it. Better overall than Bud, Coors, etc.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Powdery, crackermeal aroma. Clear, brilliant yellow. It’s not just that they sell this stuff in the cans, but the can is lame, so I couldn’t give this great marks on appearance. Briny, with a good dry bite. This is a pizza beer, no doubt. Long hoppy aftertaste. Not fizzy, medium body. Decent, but not for the price.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors, 12 oz can. Pours a dark golden, slightly glinty with a tight snow white head. Brief hint of spice in the aroma, otherwise pretty neutral. Very crisp flavor with some buttery notes, a hint of spices and a nice hoppy bite in the back end. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Overall, refreshing and something good to take where glass not allowed.

Pours a straw yellow with a fluffy white head. Not really much of an aroma. Pretty much your average pilsener.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Poured a pale golden body with thin head. Aroma is light malt and hops. Flavor is slightly bitter, sweet malty body with a very light hop presence. I was a little disappointed with the lack of hops and minimal carbonation. Most likely this will need to be rated again at some point.

Can. Poured a clear gold color with a white head. Pretty standard, but good pilsner aromas that included the likes of hay, grass, and a bit of grape. Light bodied and dryish with grass, cereal grain, and subdued honey flavors.
