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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
can. Pours a light yellow golden - very pale actually, with a nice initial big white head- fades down slightly . Aroma is very spicy fresh saaz, light crackery malts, adn a slight corn and DMS artificial weird sweetness. Flavor also has lots of nice fresh hops but there is a strange corny gritty sweetness, corn, dms, and slight vegetal. Pretty thin even for a pilsner. Seems like they may have added some adjunct.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can from zathrus13, thanks Jeff. Piss yellow color with a white head. Light grain aroma, some lemon as well maybe. A little sweetness up front, but had just a little bite in the finish, very easy to drink overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap, Roadhouse in MA. Pours clean gold with a small head. Aroma is mild with grain and sweetness. Couldn’t note all that much going on in this brew, really. Palate is crisp and light, and flavors have some mild herbal hopping and underlying glowing sweetness. Not my favorite.
