2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Soft and mildly grainy aroma with some herbal hops. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a decent white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Sweet malt flavour has some notes of corn, and herbal hops with light finishing bitterness. Sampled on the PA trip 2005.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a golden color with a thin, white head that left sparce lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy, stale hops, some dough and faint citrus. Taste was muddy, grass that had been walked over. Tasted very dirty, though smelled slightly better.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hmmm 69 people before me did not notice that this is not a pilsner, but in fact a Vienna Lager. Although the name says pilsner it is not. This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy mostly diminishing white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild floral malts . Its mouth feel is initially tingly mildly malty with a lingering mellow thick palate. Its flavor contained mild hops and malts favoring the hops and was tasty. An above average brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Hazy golden, thin head, sudsy white, lively carbonation, slick lacing. Pale grassy/straw nose. Extremely soft hop presence, subtle malts, grassy. Medium bodied and mouthfeel. Clean exit, but not as crisp as I prefer. Lingering grassy sweetness, soft. Not bad. Thanks Bill!

Ho hum. Yeah, I can taste some actual malt character. But this beer is dull and has very little flavor. The kind of beer that Bud drinkers would probably reach for if they were pretending to know something about microbrews. There’s just so much boring beer out there and this is one more bottle of it. But you know what? This is America, dammit. In almost every town across the continent we can find a store that sells the best beers in the world. Almost all of them cost less than $12 a 6 pack. What other world-class gourmet pleasures are so easily available for such little money? Folks, we don’t need to settle for boring or ’acceptable’ beer. I’m sure that this was a great beer in 1986 but the bar has been raised so much higher since then (no pun intended). Please, pass this beer up and never look back.
