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.

Really nice looking pilsener with a slightly cloudy golden colour and a creamy head. Falls really flat on the aroma and taste, unfortunately.

Jaune brillante avec une petite robe blanche. L’arôme des céréales et d’houblon saaz. En bouche il y a des céréales, un peu du malt, et d’houblon saaz. Rafraîchissante, mais rien de spéciale.

clear pale yellow pour, small but very white head. Nose is Pilsner malt with a hint of peppery hops. Middle is thin malt, a little watery, and a noticeable floral hop background. Finish is light, sweet malt. Not bad, not great.

4 oz chilled pour into a cylindrical tasting glass from tap at the brewery’s taphouse. Fresh as can be! Yellow and clear with a moderate head. Easily the most flavorful pils I’ve ever had. Wheat nose. A bit of citrus, lemon, and grassy taste.

Can from Aaron--thanks! I didn’t actually see it (straight from the can) so appearance is a guess. But it’s classic in the way that I generally don’t like pils: a kind of cardboard flavor and body. Not a great aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from tallboy can into a footed pilsner glass, a clear golden with very short-lived white foam. Weak but pleasant aromas of sweet grains and noble hops. I don’t know if it’s all-grain, but it tastes authentic. More hops bitterness than flavour and aroma. Light body, lower than expected carbonation, bittersweet aftertaste. Not a classic German Pilsener, but as good or better than most American versions.

From a can into a pint glass. Pours a clear pale yellow gold color with smaller white head that shrinks quickly, nose is corn, citrus, hint of whisky, biscuits. Medium carbonation, light body, sweet, with a bit of dryness in the finish. Easy to drink, decently made, but has a hint of a typical cheap lager in it.
