2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale straw color with an average waxy white head. Could have sworn I rated this before. Dry grain and mild yeast and raisin aromas. Can say I never was a big fan of this one and this latest bottle confirms it. Light grainy flavors with a mild floral backdrop that just seems to sweeten things up more. Has more of a keller brew taste. Just not much of what I am looking for in a pils. Perhaps if I thought of this as a zwickle I would enjoy it more, but than again maybe not.

Cloudy yelow gold and white thin head with a sweet fruit and grain aroma.Initial sweetness of malt and decent balance of hop bitterness on the finish. Cleansing mouthfeel, cuts through the dust. Not bad,a little a decent Pilsner.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet, fruity (pear, lemon) and grainy aroma with some floral hops apparent. Opaque, hazy, deep yellow with pillowy, white, large-bubbled head that recedes slowly with some nice lacing. Lemon-citrus and pear flavours dominate the sweet flavour with some graininess and a crisp finishing bitterness. Light body with strong carbonation. Odd for style but refreshing although flavour degrades severely as it warms. Why does it seem like every beer I have from this brewery seems to taste like a wheat beer?

Pours light golden with a small white head. Kind of boring, and bland. Basic pilsener taste. Very drinkable though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy gold with moderate white head, fruity malty aroma and flavor with subtle spice balanced by hops that seem light for a PIls but with a long hop finish. Smooth palate, a pleasant-enough easy-drinking Pilsner.

Nice full bready and carrot aroma. Notes of oranges in the background. Thin white head. This tops the deep gold body. The taste is malty and full for the style. Some notes of ginger and wheat bread. Also some hints of celery in the aftertaste. Decent, but nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazey yellowish hue, good head formation. Clean malt aroma, slight grain. Well spiced palate, dryish with cloves, fairly bitter and astringent in the finish. Finish spoils things a little.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy gold with an ample white head. Aroma was malt, yeast, some hops, lemon zest. Good carbonation but thin and watrey body. The flavor was subtly sweet and malty. A forgetable beer.

The hops have a very strong presence in this beer. Like chewing dried fresh hops. This beers taste is very "clean", reminiscent of Nordic pilsners, that taste like they were made from glaciers. The carbonation is strong, and lasts through the whole drinking of the glass. It’s overall flavor is unique in this class of beer, and it is a bit stronger than the average pilsner. An interesting one to sample, that needs multipple samplings to really get a hold of it’s complexity.
