4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This only rated 3.12 as of October, 2012. This makes me suspect that either this stuff is incredibly inconsistent or people just don’t like a good American craft lager. This is rather more Pilsner-like than most American brews billed as such but still is very much from the country it’s brewed in. It’s a nice golden yellow w/ a scant but lasting head of fine bubbles. The nose is rather brighter than I’d expect from a Pilsner but quite nice w/ loads of floral character. Flavor too is nice and clean w/ a firm citrus-rind bitterness in the finish. There is a touch of sweetness but fine carbonation helps keep it perfectly drinkable. There is really a lot to like here and a good deal of complexity for a lighter brew. This isn’t really a Pilsner--meaning it does not taste like a European pils--but it gives you pretty much exactly what you’d want out of such a beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 oz can.
Aroma has a moderate bready, grainy character. Some light fruit esters. No phenolics or diacetyl. A touch of staleness.
Pours a cloudy, pale yellow gold with a thin, white head that recedes somewhat quickly to the edges. Light lacing and faint legs.
Flavor has a light sweetness with quite a bit of grain and bread notes. Moderate bitterness without any hop flavor. Some mineral notes to the water. Light fruit esters and no diacetyl or phenolics.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and crisp with moderate carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, an easy drinking, fairly clean pilsner. A bit stale, but a good beer. Nice crispness with some good malt notes.

On tap. Pours a clear light gold with little head. Aromas of apples, cereal, and light dill. I wonder if the glass is clean... Light flavors of apples, toasted malts, and bread. Didn’t get any spice or floral notes - just a fruity slightly sweet lager.

Quality pilsner with a good balance between floral hops and grassy malts. Alcohol sting on the end takes away slightly from total experience.
