bright yellow. What a good pilsner. Very drinkable and crisp when very cold. A slight sweet flavor. It got flat too quickly though. Hoppy aroma with a little yeast smell. A good summer beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale golden pour with thin white head. The aroma is malty with a touch of grass. This one is sweet pilsener malt with a touch of saaz hop. I could have used a little more hops, but this was both rich and smooth and yet still refreshing. I liked it quite a bit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours a clear yellow color generating a fluffy white head with lacing that sticks like glue. The aroma is sweet grains, malty, and herbal. Flavors are both sweet and sour, showing grass, hay, earthy hops and a crisp bitter finish. Not bad. Not on Prima Pils level (perhaps my favorite Pils) but still refreshing enough and a nice swill replacement. Drink this one while mowing the lawn, sitting on the patio, throw a few in the golf bag, you know what I mean.

Pours a very clear pale yellow color with a wispy white head. Aroma is sweet (honey) and spicy (hops). Taste is earthy, citrusy hops. Not over the top, this is what lawnmower beer should be; crisp, clean, simple, drinkable, and enjoyable. Good for the summer time.

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.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.
