2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I am not, have never been, and never will be a fan of pilsner. This one is not overly horrible, and that’s probably only because it is made by Oskar Blues, quite possibly the best brewer in America. This loses points on appearance: bright yellow with a white head, no different than any macrobrew. It also loses points on the all but non-existent aroma. Although it only has 5.3%, there is an odd bite of alcohol in the beginning of the sip. Grassy with a bitter finish. I don’t like pilsners, and this one loses points on aroma and appearance, yet I still give it a 2.9 out of 5.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours extremely clear yellow into the glass with a small white head. Aroma is skunky. Flavor is where this beer misses for me. An extremely buttery taste on the tongue. Disappointed with this one

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked this up in Atlanta. Pale yellow. Slightly grassy hop aroma. Light, sweet malts with a mild, hay and grass accented floral hop finish. Light and easy drinking. Enjoyable brew, probably better than this score indicates.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pils pours a bright yellow in color with a nice head that faded fast. On the nose you get wheat aromas w slight fruit. Flavor is a bit of a let down. Good fruit and very mildly hopped. I love everything that Oskar Blues brews, or at least thought i did until i tried this. Skip this and have a Scrimshaw or a Prima Pils!!!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
20090403 12oz can from Spirits RB. I was very excited to find this beer on the shelf as a canned pils is one of my favorite things. Cool colors and graphics on the can. Pours a clear deep gold with small but lasting white head. Aroma is Saazy and with a big dose of shortbread and some adjuncty off aroma that reminds oh too much of a mega lager. Oh no. Body is light with decent eff, finishing somewhat slick. Flavor is disappointingly vegetal and only marginally drinkable. Major let down.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Pours a clear light golden yellow with a huge rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is wheaty malts, a little fruit and yeast.
The flavor is earthy wheat malts and some yeast with a dry floral finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a well done pilsner which is not my favorite style. I like the canned version better than I remember it on draft.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. can. Pale golden color with a medium sized white head. Spicy herbal hop aroma with hints of grain. Clean, grainy malt flavors are predominate. Corn and hints of apple, with a earthy and floral hop component. Vegetal finish with hints of astringency. Mouthfeel is light, somewhat dry.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured crystal clear gold with a short white head that was sort of dense and left behind average lacing. Sweet, corny aromas over malts and super faint spicy Saaz hops. The flavor tasted like creamed corn and light malt. Not enough contrast from anything resembling a spicy hop. Pretty good mouthfeel although the finish was slightly sweet and lingered for a bit.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden with a good sized foamy white head. Aroma is malty with some spiciness. Flavor is more pilsner style maltiness with hints of spice to keep it interesting. Solid pilsner, an enjoyable beer on a warm day.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, medium gold with a tall, foamy white head. Corny malt aroma of grain and light citrus. The body is very smooth, with that grainy malt character giving most of the flavor, with some herbal, grassy notes towards the end. Very refreshing. Good Pilsner.
